Brother John Lyrics

Well, Brother John went down to the garden
On a long hot summer's day
To watch that girl, he would hide in the shadows
As she worked the time away

With her long black hair and her eyes of fire
And a body to drive men crazy
It was on that day there would be a change
In the world of Brother John, yeah

She felt his eyes and she walked up beside him
And she took him by the hand,
She said, "Brother John, it's so hard to be holy
Would you like to be a man??

?I will meet you tonight at the monastery wall
If you're there we will find out together"
And the Devil said, "There's a place in hell
For the soul of Brother John"

Hallelujah, temptation is here
It's not a dream anymore
Hallelujah, it's finally here
I've been waiting, I'm waiting, I'm waiting

Well, Brother John lay tossing and turning
In his bed in the heat of the night
He heard his name and he went to the window
Where she was in the clear moonlight

Oh, the sins of the flesh are too much to deny
He was lost to her body forever
And the Devil laughed and the angels cried
For the soul of Brother John

Hallelujah, temptation is here
It's not a dream anymore
Hallelujah, it's finally here
I've been waiting, I'm waiting, I'm waiting

Hallelujah, temptation is here
It's not a dream anymore
Hallelujah, it's finally here
I've been waiting, I'm waiting, I'm waiting

Temptation is here for Brother John
Temptation is here

Temptation is here for Brother John
Temptation is here

He was brought into temptation and forever was [Incomprehensible]
