Speak of the Devil

You say your man
Is the jealous kind
He knocked you down
And he blacked your eye
He slept the day
And he drank the night
Lookin' for trouble
To start a fight

Speak of the devil, here he comes after you
Well I don't believe in evil
But all hell's gonna break loose

You say your man
He leaves you cryin'
He spends your money
And he steals you blind
He turned away
From all your friends
Then throws you out
When you pay the rent

Speak of the devil, here he comes after you
Well I don't believe in evil
But all hell's gonna break loose

Speak of the devil

You say your man
He treats you mean
A Texas temper
And bad scenes
He's got a head
As hard as stone
And thinks you're cheatin'
If you ain't alone
Look out!

Speak of the devil, here he comes after you
Well I don't believe in evil
But all hell's gonna break loose
Speak of the devil
