It's that old devil called love again
Gets behind me and keeps giving me the shove again
Putting rain in my eyes, tears in my dreams
And rocks in my heart

It's that sly old son of a gun again
He keeps telling me that I'm the lucky one again
But I still have that rain still have those tears
And those rocks in my heart

Suppose I didn't stay ran away wouldn't play
That devil - what a potion he would brew
He'd follow me around build me up, tear me down
Till I'd be so bewildered I wouldn't know what to do

Might as well give up the fight again
I know darn well he'll convince me that he's right again
When he sings that siren song I just gotta tag along
With that old devil called love

He'd follow me around build me up, tear me down
Till I'd be so bewildered I wouldn't know what to do

Might as well give up the fight again
I know darn well he'll convince me that he's right again
When he sings that siren song I just gotta tag along
With that old devil called love
With that old devil called love
