Well Brother John went down to the garden,
To watch that girl he would hide in the shadows,
With her long black hair and her eyes of fire,
It was on that day there would be a change,

And she took him by the hand,
Would you like to be a man?
If you're there we will find out together,"
For the soul of Brother John;"
Hallelujah! Temptation is here,
Hallelujah! It's finally here,

In his bed in the heat of the night,
Where she was in the clear moonlight,
He was lost to her body forever,
For the soul of Brother John;
Hallelujah! Temptation is here,
Hallelujah! It's finally here,

It's not a dream anymore,
I've been waiting, I'm waiting, I'm waiting
Temptation is here for Brother John,
