I was the first man in Eden...back in the Garden had a great little place
It was just me and the Lord and we never got bored...we invented the whole human race
Then we went for a walk in the evening...he said, "I can't help but notice you're blue"
So the next thing he said was, "let me borrow a rib and we'll just see what a woman might do"

Well, I slept through the whole operation ...awoke to find Eve at my side
And God said, "you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
But just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree"

Well the first couple weeks was a pleasure... just enough for my new baby and me
We were never apart; we were lovers at heart....never came even close to that tree
'Til I left her alone unattended and she returned from her first shopping spree
It was a sweet little find that I shoulda declined when she handed that mango to me

Now were blaming everything on the Devil, but I remember what God said to me..
He said, "you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
Just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree"

Back when the Earth was still all milk and honey
Couldn't get it right with only one rule to follow
Guess I need a lot of help from God Almighty
If I want to get back to that Garden tomorrow

'Cause you can have everything in the garden
You can name everything that you see
Just remember one thing what the Devil may bring
And stay away from the fruit of that tree
Oh stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away from the fruit of that tree

Stay away, stay away from the fruit of that tree
Stay away
