Lyrics

BETTER THE DEVIL

(male) IF ALL YOUR LIES WERE MONEY
I'D BE THE RICHEST MAN ALIVE
BECAUSE ALL OF THE LIES THAT YOU GAVE ME
I TOOK WITH MY ARMS OPEN WIDE

(female) AND IF EVERY GIRL I CAUGHT YOU WITH WAS YOUR COUSIN
YOUR FAMILY WOULD FILL A NATION OF THEIR OWN
YOUR FOOLIN' ROUND SHOULD MAKE ME FIND ANOTHER
BUT I CAN'T LEAVE YOUR LOVE ALONE

chorus; WE AIN'T GOING NOWHERE, WE'RE GONNA STAY A PAIR
YOU'RE A DOG, YOU'RE A NO GOOD SO AND SO
BUT WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE, WE'LL STILL HAVE OUR FUN
SO IT'S BETTER THE DEVIL THAT YOU KNOW

(female)I WENT TO SEE A FORTUNE TELLER
AND THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID TO ME
A BIRD IN THE HAND IS WORTH SO MUCH MORE
THAN TWO TWO-TIMING BIRDS UP IN A TREE

(male) ACROSS TOWN I GOT A FRIEND SHE NAMED JODIE
AND I GO UP AND SEE HER SOMETIMES
BUT IF IT WASN'T FOR THE MONEY FROM MY POCKET
I KNOW JODIE WOULD BE NO FRIEND OF MINE

chorus
