the devil is a woman

the devil is a woman

and she is wicked, they say

you will look in her eyes

and on your heart she will prey


the devil is a woman

and she is bewitching, they say

you will let her inside

and she will lead you astray


the devil is a woman

and she is a liar, they say

you will mean her well

and in your soul is drawn to play


the devil is a woman

and she made me do it, they say

she is not a good one

everyone knows – i pray.
