You don't want to know my name, you don't really want my number
You don't want to see me again - why bother to lie?
We are just two strangers, strangely attracted to each other
And the night is cool but you are warm and so am I

 

Come on down, down, down - you can sit here beside me
And I won't tell your girlfriend, I won't even tell your wife
'Cause I won't even be here, the sun rises behind me
Just buy me a drink and spin me a dance and get on with your life

 

'Cause I'm going to walk on by, Lord
I'm going to walk on by
Just walk on by
Help me to turn aside
Walk on by, Lord, teach me to walk on by
'Cause temptation is strong and falling is sweet
But I'll walk on by

 

Don't bother to ask, it's not your business why I came here
My husband's at home - I guess he likes sleeping alone
But I don't, I don't - I'm just a little more friendly
And deep in my heart there's a fatal flaw that prompts me to roam

 

But I'm going to walk on by, Lord
I'm going to walk on by
Just walk on by, Lord, Lord
Help me to turn aside
Walk on by, Lord - teach me to walk on by
'Cause temptation is strong and falling is sweet
But I'll walk on by
