Last night, all alone at a party I met a man with a drink in his hand He had soft brown eyes and coal black hair And a smile a girl could understand Then he came and sat down at my table And placed his warm hand on mine, now And I found myself wanting, longing to kiss him, yes I did For temptation was flowing like wine And oh I was all, almost persuaded To strip myself apart, apart, yes Oh almost, nearly persuaded now To push my, push my ole conscience right on the side Then we danced, then we danced, he whispered, "Baby, I need you now" He said to me, "Let me take you away, ooh I wanna be your man" Than I looked in his eyes and I saw it, yeah I saw it I saw the reflection of my, my wedding band Oh I was almost, almost, almost persuaded, yes I was To let a strange lips, somebody's lips lure me, lure me on, now Oh I was almost, yeah nearly, nearly persuaded But your, your sweet love made me stop, made me stop and go on
