Lyrics sample

There’s a tin of chocolate

Behind the cupboard door.

Though it’s very tempting,

You know it isn’t yours!

It’s just like a magnet,

Temptation’s pulling you.

You can fight against it!

Be careful what you choose.

Step away from the chocolate!

You mustn’t let it win!

Step away from the chocolate!

Leave it in the tin!

Step right back now! Don’t let temptation win!

Step right back now! Don’t – don’t give in!
