LYRICS (scroll to see more):

1.  "Temptation"
Temptation, on one of these nights.
An invitation, and it'll be so right. 
For your just the right size,
With just the right style. 
And I know if we touch,
The sparks will fly.
'Cause when you look in these eyes,
You'll recognize.  (hunh)
Temptation, temptation.

2.  "Sincerely Yours"
From this funny, sunny scene.
Where the heat burns the pavement,
And evaporates the dreams.
And the body of my letter,
Is my body nearby yours.
And how much I remember, the feeling in your voice.
And I sign myself, sincerely yours.
I sign myself, sincerely yours.
