∙⊱∙ Ɣ ∙⊰∙ Devil beware!

∙⊱∙⊰∙

∙⊱∙∙⊰∙

∙⊱∙ Ɣ ∙⊰∙

the  Devil’s  got  no  magic
not  black  nor  white  nor  green

He  got nothin’  but a bag of  tricks
He  just ugly  and  full of  shit  and  mean

Ɣ

the  Devil’s  got  no  magic,  no  allusions  or  illusions
that will trick me  into thinkin’   He  knows which way to go

He  got nothin’  to sway  me
just a worn out dog and pony show

Ɣ

the Devil’s  got  no  magic
no enchantment  to  bewitch me

He  got nothin’  i  want
’cause  i’m  more evil  than  He  ever be

“Devil Woman”   Cliff Richard

lyrics ~

  • Songwriters:  Terry Britten,  Christine Hodgson

I’ve had nothing but bad luck
Since the day I saw the cat at my door
So I came into you sweet lady
Answering your mystical call

Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future, the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
And I knew it was a spell she cast

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you from behind

Give me the ring on your finger
Let me see the lines on your hand
I can see me a tall dark stranger
Giving you what you hadn’t planned

I drank the potion she offered me
I found myself on the floor
Then I looked in those big green eyes
And I wondered what I’d come there for

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get  you

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil  woman
She’s gonna get you from behind

Stay away, look out

If you’re  out on a moonlit night
Be careful of them neighborhood strays
Of a lady with long black hair
Tryin’ to win you with her feminine ways

Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future, the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
You’d better get out of there fast

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get  you

“Me And The Devil”   Gil Scott Heron

lyrics ~

Early this mornin’
When you knocked upon my door
Early this mornin’
When you knocked upon my door
An’  I say  “Hello, Satan
I believe it’s time to go.”

Me and the Devil
Walkin’  side by side
Me and the Devil
Walkin’  side by side

And I’m going to see my woman
Till I get satisfied
She say she don’t see why
You dog me around
Don’t see why

You keep on doggin’  me around

Must be that old evil spirit
Deep down in the ground
You may bury my body

Down by the highway sign
You may bury my body
Down by the highway sign
So my old evil spirit
Can take the Greyhound bus and ride

angels, the Devil and God { revisiting 2010 }

::

::   ::

the angels held their breath

waiting to see what you would do

::   ::

the Devil made promises

certain that He knew what you most wanted

::   ::

God looked down and smiled

knowing all along what your decision would be

“Temptation”   Tom Waits

Written by Tom Waits
Vocal Arrangements by Kathleen Brennan
Horn Arrangements by Greg Cohen

lyrics ~

Rusted brandy in a diamond glass
Everything is made from dreams
Time is made from honey slow and sweet
Only the fools know what it means
Temptation, temptation,  temptation
I can’t resist

I just know that she is made of smoke
But I have lost my way
She knows that I am broke
But I must play
Temptation, temptation, temptation
I can’t resist

Temptation, temptation, temptation
I just can’t resist

Dutch pink and Italian blue
She’s there waiting for you
My will has disappeared
My confusion is oh so clear
Temptation, temptation, temptation
I can’t reisist

Temptation, temptation, temptation
I just can’t resist

Rusted brandy in a diamond glass
Everything is made from dreams
Time is made from honey slow and sweet
Only the fools know what it means
Temptation, temptation, temptation
Temptation, temptation, temptation
Temptation, temptation, temptation
