lyrics

I worked day and night in a job that gave me grief
So I called on the Devil to bring me some relief
That night he came to me on the factory floor
And offered me a bargin that I could not ignore
A life of pure pleasure, no pain and no care
I'd always be young in the fresh morning air
So I took his hand and in the blink of an eye
I was a lamb to the slaughter waiting to die

Oh Devils Devils Devils
Always to the letter
Suddenly upon you
Then gone forever

We prayed, we prayed for a little baby boy
For fourteen years our house was cold
And nine months ago Laura turned to me
"Henry it's too late, I'm far too old"
So we called on the devil to send us a son
By eight thirty this morning the baby had come
It had teeth and claws and shining red eyes
The Devil said - did you want a human child?
Well you should have specified!

Oh Devils Devils Devils
Always to the letter
Suddenly upon you
Then gone forever

Oh Devils Devils Devils
Laura is dying
The baby is crying
I cradle them gently

I was a fisherman on the southern coast
And I caught enough fish to keep my family afloat
One night I was mending my ropes by the shore
When a rare and lovely beauty offered me more
I kissed her and she told me to haul in my net
I caught so many fish that now nothing is left
Now the fish are all gone and the sea it is dead
My children are hungry and my young wife has left

Devils Devils Devils
Always to the letter
Suddenly upon you
Then gone forever

Oh Devils Devils Devils
Our bellies are empty
And that day of plenty
No more than a memory

Devil was laughing about all that he had done
God said - My Devil, yes you have won
Come up here oh come up here and wear my golden crown
And the Devil climbed right up there and could not get down
And God came to earth to play tricks without end
Up there the Devil he plots his revenge
