that ole devil called love lyrics – billie holiday

it’s that ole devil called love game
gets behind me and keeps giving me that shock again
put a ring in my eyes
tears in my dreams
and rocks in my heart

it’s that sly ole sun of a gun again
he keeps telling me that i’m the lucky one again
but i still have that ring
still have those tears
and those rocks in my heart

suppose i didn’t stay and 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
and that he’s right again
when he sings that siren song
i just gotta tag along
with that ole devil called love

he’d follow 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
and that he’s right again
when he sings that siren song
i just gotta tag along
with that ole devil called love
with that ole devil called love
