Sunday Song Lyrics: Simply Irresistible

By Robert Palmer

How can it be permissible
She compromised my principle, yeah yeah
That kind of love is mythical
She’s anything but typical 

She’s a craze you’d endorse, she’s a powerful force
You’re obliged to conform when there’s no other course
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible…Simply irresistible

Her loving is so powerful, huh
It’s simply unavoidable
The trend is irreversible
The woman is invincible

She’s a natural law, and she leaves me in awe
She deserves the applause, I surrender because
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible…Simply irresistible
(Simply irresistible) She’s so fine, there’s no tellin’ where the money went
(Simply irresistible) She’s all mine, there’s no other way to go

She’s unavoidable, I’m backed against the wall
She gives me feelings like I never felt before
I’m breaking promises, she’s breaking every law
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
She’s so fine, there’s no tellin’ where the money went
(Simply irresistible) She’s all mine, there’s no other way to go

Her methods are inscrutable
The proof is irrefutable, Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
She’s so completely kissable, huh
Our lives are indivisible

She’s a craze you’d endorse, she’s a powerful force
You’re obliged to conform when there’s no other course
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible…Simply irresistible
She’s so fine, there’s no tellin’ where the money went
(Simply irresistible) She’s all mine, there’s no other way to go
She’s so fine, there’s no tellin’ where the money went
(Simply irresistible) She’s all mine, there’s no other way to go
Simply irresistible

Why this song, and not Addicted to Love (with what is probably the most notable video ever made)? Well, back when the song was popular, I commented to a friend that I did not like the song. He responded that “Any song that woudl make teenage girls look up a dictionary was a favorite of mine.”

Sadly, the friend died of a brain bleed. He now has a MySpace Site, and is still remembered.
