Lyrics
Forbidden fruit
© 2008 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

When I was a boy - my mama told me
She said son - now you listen to me
Someday - this old lady - ain't going to be around no more
To teach the difference about right and wrong

Mama said son: I'm going to tell you now
That nasty ways - just gonna lead you astray
Sin ain't no toy - never going to give you no joy
That's why the Good Book calls it forbidden fruit

Forbidden fruit / Forbidden fruit
The things you like so much but you can't touch - NO - NO - NO - NO
Forbidden fruit / Forbidden fruit
There's compensation if you choose salvation - over -
That old forbidden fruit - oh Heaven waiting

My mama said: No mercy ever flows
To where the bad - bad seed grows
It looks so appealing - when it's hanging on the vine
Forbidden fruit got a tendency - to intoxify the mind

Forbidden fruit / Forbidden fruit
The things you like so much but you can't touch - NO - NO - NO - NO
Forbidden fruit / Forbidden fruit
There's compensation if you choose salvation - over -
That old forbidden fruit - oh Heaven waiting

Mama said temptation - can get the better of me
If I ever see - forbidden fruit - hanging on the tree
Here's what my mama said - and she was talking to my soul - she said, "Son, you better listen to me:"
You never take - what don't belong to you
You never do - what you ain't supposed to do
Don't ever give something - you wouldn't take back for yourself
Respect the truth - walk tall with dignity
There ain't no pleasure in regretting - what you do
When all you got to show is that old forbidden fruit

Cigarettes - forbidden fruit
Race track bets - forbidden fruit
Married women - forbidden fruit
Pretty boys - forbidden fruit
Cocaine and Ecstasy - forbidden fruit
Stolen Cadillacs - forbidden fruit
Hot bling bling bling - forbidden fruit
Cussing and fighting - forbidden fruit
Telling lies - forbidden fruit
Disrespecting old folk - forbidden fruit
All iniquity - forbidden fruit
Robbing Peter - to pay Paul
It's all the same - forbidden fruit / forbidden fruit

Forbidden fruit / Forbidden fruit
The things you like so much but you can't touch - NO - NO - NO - NO
Forbidden fruit / Forbidden fruit
There's compensation if you choose salvation - over -
That old forbidden fruit - oh Heaven waiting

My mama said: If you get lonely
Pray to the Lord - to walk with you
He'll take you home - on his testimony route
No time - no time - to taste that old forbidden fruit
No time to stop and taste - that old forbidden fruit
No time for forbidden fruit
