lyrics

DID I EVER TELL YOU ‘BOUT THE TIME I MET THE DEVIL?

Six, six, six, months ago today.
He said “Come over here pretty boy.
I got something to say,
To you.”

He said “I’ll tell you all the lies,
That you wanna hear.
I’ll give you any thing,
I got it right here.”

(BRIDGE ONE)

“THE ONLY THING IS I GET YOUR SOUL”
“But I don’t have one anyway.”
“THE ONLY THING IS I GET YOUR SOUL”
“But I don’t have one anyway.”

SO HERE COMES JESUS...

...and it looks like he’s got something to say.
He was wearing eyeliner, I was wearing eyeliner too.
He said “That guy over there.
You should know, he’s no good.
He only tells lies,
And he’ll burn you alive.

(BRIDGE TWO)

“THE OTHER THING IS YOU CAN’T COME HOME.”
“But I don’t have one anyway.”
“THE OTHER THING IS YOU CAN’T COME HOME.”
“But I don’t have one.”

(CHORUS)

YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD THE DEVIL
NO!
YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD THE DEVIL
NO!
LOOK, I DID.

(INSTRUMENTAL TWO BARS)

SO THERE’S THIS GUY IN A SUIT...

He’s got papers for me.
“I can give you anything you want
If you sign here for me.”

“Get yourself a nice house,
Maybe a wife,
Start your own company...

“THE ONLY THING IS I GET YOUR SOUL”
“But I don’t have one, anyway.”
“THE ONLY THING IS I GET YOUR SOUL”
“But I don’t have one.”

END
