I saw my desire as a lake of fire And I was thinkin' bout taking a swim She looked all right Wearin' something tight She said Lover, won't you jump on in The I singed my feet And I felt the heat That's when I knew she was not my friend So I declined in the nick of time And I told her right there and then
(I said) Hey you little devil hey Go on get out of my way Hey you little devil hey There's gonna be Hell to pay
He looked real astute in his three-piece suit He said Sign on the bottom of this page Then he smiled and I saw the fangs and the claws In his eyes was a hunger and rage Then it was clear to me I had a key To loose a tiger from it's cage I said Sir I know your name And the souls that you claimed So Pardon me if I disengage
Shuckin' a jivin' Drinkin' and drivin' But I know I'm gonna hit the wall Jukin' and smokin' Till I'm battered and broken You can't get up until you fall And the Joker he just laughs at it all
I know these tricks and how the game is fixed How you gain the world and lose your soul And how the still small voice Says Boy, you've got a choice. . . The courts of Heaven or the fires below I know what grace is And how sin has it's wages And how pride will take it's toll I know the cross and the savior of the lost And where the saints and the sinners go. . .
