Oh, it's not easy to resist temptation.
Walking around looking like a figment of somebody else's imagination.
Taking ev'ry word she says just like an open invitation.
But the power of persuasion is no match for anticipation.

Like a finger running down a seam----. From a whisper to a scream.

So, I whisper and I scream. But don't get me wrong...

Please don't leave me waitin' too long, waitin' too long,
Waitin' too long, waitin' too long.

Hey---! Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!

Oh if the customers like it then they'll keep on paying.
If they keep on drinking then they'll end up staying.
I heard someone say where have we met before.
But the one over the eight seem less like one or more like four.
