I Made A Deal With The Devil
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I never believed in Hell 'til I married my wife
So I must admit she brought religion to my life
I always wanted someone to love
But, marrying her, what the hell was I thinkin' of?

CHORUS
I made a deal with the devil to divorce his sister
Since she's been gone, you know I've never missed her
Now I can begin to forget about the last time I kissed her
Though now I have to call the devil "mister"

RIDE

VERSE
When he took her back, he said: "Enjoy your life."
Then he said somethin' about me bein' his when I die
But eternal damnation is a fair price to pay
For not wakin' up with her in this life every day

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Somebody said a bargain with the devil is no bargain at all
But all I've got to say is they never met his sister
