Speak Of The Devil

 

Speak Of The Devil


Speak of the Devil and he's bound to appear
Wearing high fashion on a catwalk near here.
Speak of the Devil and he's bound to appear.
The Devil wears Prada, or didn't you hear?

CHORUS:
Who in the devil is the Devil anyway?
Is the Devil such a demon
or is he just portrayed that way?
What's in a name? Could it just be
that the Devil's only evil with a capital D?

RAP:
Horny Little Devil, Thorny Little Devil,
The not so scrawny Little Devil of Tasmania. (Tassie Devil)
Not the spawn of the devil
or even born of the devil
But just a bad case of Devil mania!
Or Devil Namey? Yah?
The Devil bird of India
does not intend to aggravate.
Does he revel with the Devil?
Or is he just the Devil's advocate?

CHORUS

Speak of the Devil and he's bound to appear
You may see him on the dance floor
of a club near here.
Speak of the Devil who is so laissez faire
That one may say his attitude is Devil may care.

CHORUS

Idle hands are his workshop or so they say
But it's a devil of a job and there is no pay!
Drive around the Devil's Elbow
Like a bat out of hell,
You can see the Devil's Marbles
and Hell's Kitchen as well!
Better the Devil you know
than the Devil you don't!
Better the Devil who will
than the Devil who won't!
Who in the devil Is the Devil anyway?
Is the Devil such a demon
or is he just portrayed that way?
What's in a name? Look and you'll see,
That the Devil's only evil with a capital D!
