Temptress - Bonafide 1990

written by : M.Bennett


I don't beg love
And neither do I borrow, hey

Temptress
I'm calling your bluff
Temptress
I hope you can deliver the stuff
Temptress
('Cause) Enough is enough
(Just) Let off, ease up
You're playing too rough

You've been tickling my fancy
Too long now, hey
And girl, my feelings
Have gotten so strong
I can't hold back the vibes no more
I think it's time we settle the score
No more promises, no more guile
I got to settle the score right now

Temptress
I'm calling your bluff
Temptress
I hope you can deliver the stuff
Temptress
('Cause) Enough is enough
(Just) Let off, ease up
You're playing too rough

Your friends they warned me about you
Long time ago, hey
But I'm a different kind of man
You know, hey
I'm not the type
You wrap round your finger
I'm not here to waste time nor linger
If you're not ready to deliver
Throw in your towel
'Cause the game is over

Temptress
I'm calling your bluff
Temptress
I hope you can deliver the stuff
Temptress
('Cause) Enough is enough
(Just) Let off, ease up
You're playing too rough

You're acting like a Jezebel, hey
You're acting like a Jezebel

You've been tickling my fancy
Too long now, hey
And girl, my feelings
Have gotten so strong
I can't hold back the vibes no more
I think it's time we settle the score
No more promises, no more guile
I got to settle the score right now

Temptress
I'm calling your bluff
Temptress
I hope you can deliver the stuff
Temptress
('Cause) Enough is enough
(Just) Let off, ease up
You're playing too rough

You're acting like a Jezebel, hey
Ooh wee, you are gonna miss me tomorrow
'Cause I don't beg love
And neither do I borrow
'Cause if you diss me today
You are gonna miss me tomorrow
'Cause I don't beg love
And neither do I borrow
Neither do I borrow
You are gonna miss me tomorrow
Diss me today
You are gonna miss me tomorrow

Temptress
I'm calling your bluff
Temptress
I hope you can deliver the stuff
Temptress
('Cause) Enough is enough
(Just) Let off, ease up
You're playing too rough

You're acting like a Jezebel, hey
You're acting like a Jezebel
See, I don't beg love, no way
Neither do I borrow
And neither do I borrow
I don't beg love and neither do I borrow
'Cause if you diss me today
You're gonna miss me tomorrow
You're gonna miss me tomorrow
Miss me tomorrow
Miss me tomorrow, hey
