Lyrics

  • WELL THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT, DO IT, DO IT
  • THE DEVIL MADE ME TRIP AND FALL
  • THE DEVIL DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • TILL I HAD NO CHANCE AT ALL
  • WHAT DID I DO THAT WAS SO BAD
  • TO GO AND GET MYSELF ARRESTED
  • JUST IN TOWN TO HAVE SOME FUN
  • BUT I END UP IN THE TRASH CAN
  • THERE I WAS IN THE WITNESS STAND
  • MY EYES TURNED TOWARDS THE JURY
  • TRYING TO RECALL WHAT WENT WRONG LAST NIGHT
  • BUT IT WON’T COME RIGHT BACK TO ME
  • YEAH THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT, DO IT, DO IT
  • THE DEVIL MADE ME TRIP AND FALL
  • THE DEVIL DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • TILL I HAD NO MIND AT ALL
  • THE LAWYER SAID ‘SON, WON’T YOU PLEAD THE FIFTH’
  • AND DON’T SPEAK UNLESS YOU’RE REQUESTED
  • USING ALL THE WORDS AT HIS COMMAND
  • HIS SKILLS WERE SORELY TESTED
  • THEN TO MY COMPLETE SURPRISE
  • THEY WENT AND CALLED A HOSTILE WITNESS
  • THE DEVIL HIMSELF WELL HE TOOK THE STAND
  • AND THAT’S WHERE MY CASE RESTED
  • WELL THE DEMON DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • THE DEVIL MADE ME TRIP AND FALL
  • THE DEMON DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • TILL I HAD NO CHANCE AT ALL
  • WHAT DID I DO THAT WAS SO BAD
  • TO GO AND GET MYSELF ARRESTED
  • WELL, JUST IN TOWN TO HAVE SOME FUN
  • BUT I END UP IN THE TRASH CAN
  • THERE I WAS IN THE WITNESS BOX
  • MY EYES TURNED TOWARDS THE JURY
  • TRYING TO RECALL WHAT WENT WRONG LAST NIGHT
  • BUT IT WON’T COME RIGHT BACK TO ME
  • YEAH THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT, DO IT, DO IT
  • THE DEVIL MADE ME TRIP AND FALL
  • THE DEVIL DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • TILL I HAD NO MIND AT ALL
  • WELL THE DEVIL DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • THE DEVIL MADE ME TRIP AND FALL
  • THE DEVIL DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • TILL I HAD NO CHANCE AT ALL
  • WELL THE DEVIL DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • THE DEVIL MADE ME TRIP AND FALL
  • THE DEMON DROVE ME TO IT, TO IT, TO IT
  • TILL I HAD NO CHANCE AT ALL
  • TILL I HAD NO CHANCE AT ALL
  • TILL I HAD NO MIND AT ALL
