She hopped in my car faster than bar time
"Honey would you like a date", she said
It wasn't even an original line
And my pants they tightened, and my face grew taut
And in my mind my mother said "you'd better not"
Then again she always told me that I wouldn't like the taste of beer
Hmmmmm
And she slid real close to me, she said I need not fear
I look like I was caught in headlights
With the eyes of a lonely deer

Forbidden fruit
I'll scale your thorny vine
To reach the top
I'll scrape and twist my spine
Forbidden fruit
Man what a joyous meal
It tastes so sweet
I'll even eat the peel
If they told me that I shouldn't then I would
Man bad must mean good
Bad bad good

She thrust a tape in my K7 deck
She seemed a little eager
I said "this sounds just like a TV ad"
She said it was Bob Seger
And the smoke dance loops from her cigarette
And her fingernails were silver like a shiny jet
And her lipsticks stained the filter as she twirled it
Like a pink roulette wheel
Mmmmmm
Would you like a gamble
She said "let's go back to my flat for a extra 50 dollars
I make you purr like an atomic cat"

Forbidden fruit
I'll scale your thorny vine
To reach the top
I'll scrape and twist my spine
Forbidden fruit
Man what a joyous meal
It tastes so sweet
I'll even eat the peel
If they told me that I shouldn't then I would
Man bad must mean good
Bad bad good

We sat on her floor
Connected like a human train
I talked on and on about my life
Her interest she just feigned
And she laid me down on her single bed
And the roof dripped rain all around my head
And my ankles were filled with beads of sweat
And the money looked so green
Hmmmmm
And she looked right through me
As if I were a window
And when we both were empty
The neon left an eerie glow

Forbidden fruit
I'll scale your thorny vine
To reach the top
I'll scrape and twist my spine
Forbidden fruit
Man what a joyous meal
It tastes so sweet
I'll even eat the peel
If they told me that I shouldn't then I would
Man bad must mean good
Why does bad always feel so good?
