I don't think this song needs any explanation. I think every married couple finds themselves in the same situation. You never can find time to relax together and when you do have time together, you're too tired to do anything, or to get anything started or, oh well, you know what I mean.

PLEASE, DON'T TEMPT ME  Lyin in my bedroom I can't go to sleep, why did that phone have to ring, and take you away just when we started, on the pleasures a night with you would bring. It's a shame we just can't get together. You hardly get a chance to be with me. Just a hug and a kiss out in the hallway, but I guess that's just the way it's got to be. Please don't tempt me, to do something we both want to do. I've got to leave and go to work now, but this weekend I can spend some time with you. Though I want you, understand what I am going through. Please don't tempt me, I can't spend this time with you. Musical turn around.  Please don't tempt me to do something we both want to do, I've got to go to town and get the car done, but this weekend I can spend some time with you.   But---this weekend---oh honey---maybe saturday when---oh gee---Johnies got---How about sunday, well forget about that, we've got band practice, maybe monday, we can, ,,yeh that's right, pta meeting, tuesday---girl scouts,,,wed...I know, I know, I know, you don't have to tell me. Now honey, don't look at me like that...it's not all my fault. We want to do more for the kids,,,and this ole house is,,,but yeh...What about us,,,we need time together too...oh well, maybe when the kids are all grown up,,,Yeh by that time the grandkids will be comin along. Oh well...I guess...thats life.
