Performed by Evelyn "Champagne" King

I don't know why I try to fight the chemistry
I get high every time your body's next to me
I don't need a book to show me how
I don't need an English teacher to help me to say I want you now
I'll give it up
Yes, sweet honey, you win
Oooh, I wanna give in to temptation
A fire's burning underneath my skin
That tells me stop the hesitation

Gonna try to do the things you want me to
Yes, you're right, you want me and I want you too
No one's gonna tell me wrong from right
Lovin' you is all that matters
Baby, I can't wait another night
I'll give it up
Yes, sweet honey, you win
Oooh, I wanna give in to temptation
A fire's burning underneath my skin
That tells me stop the hesitation
I'll give it up
Yes, sweet honey, you win
Oooh, I wanna give in to temptation
A fire's burning underneath my skin
That tells me stop the hesitation

No one's gonna tell me wrong from right
Oh, no!
Lovin' you is all that matters
Baby, I can't wait another night
I'll give it up
Yes, sweet honey, you win
Oooh, I wanna give in to temptation
A fire's burning underneath my skin
That tells me stop the hesitation
I'll give it up
Yes, sweet honey, you win
Oooh, I wanna give in to temptation
A fire's burning underneath my skin
That tells me stop the hesitation
I'll give it up
Yes, sweet honey, you win
(Give it up!)
Oooh, I wanna give in to temptation
A fire's burning underneath my skin
That tells me stop the hesitation
I'll give it up
Yes, sweet honey, you win
Oooh, I wanna give in to temptation
A fire's burning underneath my skin
That tells me stop the hesitation
