  • Song Lyrics:
    Band leader voice:
    Rosen up the bow and here we go (spits).

    Red Ingle:
    Oh, tell me, willya darlin', why you look so bad tonight? They's bags around yore eyeballs, which is red instead of white ...

    Jo Stafford:
    Well, it were this a-way, you came when I was alone, shucks, I shoulda known that you was tim-tay-shun. You smiled, a-leerin' me on, my heart it plum gone, 'cause you were tim-tay-shun.

    It'd be thrillin' if'n yore willin', but if it never can be, then pity fer me, fer you was too bored to be kissed, I couldn't resist 'cause you was tim-tay-shun and I was yorn.

    Musical Bridge

    Red Ingle:
    Yes, as the Serpent tempted Adam, as the Apple tempted Eve, as a mud hole tempts a miskeeter, darlin' that's how ya tempted me.

    Jo Stafford: That's how ya tempted me.

    Red Ingle:
    Yeah, as corn liquor tempts a drunkard, as sorgum tempts a bee, as a willer treee tempts a catepillar, darlin' -

    Jo Stafford:
    That's how ya tempted me.

    You came when I was alone, shucks, I shoulda known that's you was tim-tay-shun. You smiled, a leerin' me on, my heart is plum gone, 'cause you was tim-tay-shun.

    It'd be thrillin' if'n yore willin', but if it never can be, then pity fer me, fer you was too bored to be kissed, I couldn't resist 'cause you was tim-----tay-----shun and I was yorn.

    Here is my heart. Take it away. Yes, take it away an' say that we will never, never, never part. I'm just a slave, a dadburned slave. I'm-a gonna wed you (ah-hah!), 'Cause yore tim-tay-shun and I'm a red-hot flame (hot cinder) fer you.
