lyrics

I ain’t supposed to know you from Adam.
You ain’t supposed to know me from Eve.
You say you want to stay tonight,
But you know you gotta leave.
You are trouble, and double or nothin’
You got something up your sleeve.
So leave me be. Don’t make this harder.
You’d better start actin’ a little bit smarter.
No more comin’ ‘round for my sweet kisses,
better get on home to your little missus now.

Now is not the time for you tellin’ me
about the finer points of fidelity.
‘Cause if there’s a block you ain’t been around,
It sure as hell ain’t in this old town.
You are trouble, and double or nothin’
You’re thinkin’ ‘bout inviting me in.
So open this door. Don’t make break in,
If you think I won’t, baby, you’re mistaken.
You might fool the other folks in town,
But just as much as me you like it when I come around.

‘Round about now you interject
‘bout livin’ a life without regrets.
But put yourself in my pretty shoes,
You’re not the only one who’s got somethin’ to lose.
You are trouble, and double or nothin’
You really haven’t thought this through.
Now I ain’t gonna lie: my body’s achin’,
But now is not time: you got a wife a’waitin’
So walk away, pretend we never met,
Before I do something else I’m a’gonna wanna forget.

Forget about guilt and conscience.
To hell with wrong or right.
Don’t worry ‘bout what other people say,
It’s just you and me here tonight.
Yeah, I’m trouble, but double or nothing,
Trouble’s what you really want.
That’s right, baby, open up the door,
Just like you done every time before.
Now, baby, ain’t you a pretty sight!
Just as much as me you’ll be glad I stayed tonight.

That’s right, baby, open up the door,
Just like you done every time before.
Now, baby, ain’t you a pretty sight!
Just as much as me you’ll be glad I came tonight.

Tonight I don’t wanna be alone.
Don’t worry, baby, I ain’t going’ home.
Come inside this door before I change my mind.
I hope you’re ready for a mighty fine time.
This is trouble. But double or nothing’
Trouble’s what you wanted to find.
I ain’t gonna lie, my body’s achin’
Thinkin’ ‘bout the sweet love, we’ll soon be making
Now, baby, ain’t you a pretty sight!
Just as much as me, you’ll be glad I stayed tonight.
