He's a devil dog, don't let him in
A devil dog comin' 'round again
Devil dog no matter what he says
He's a devil dog no matter how he begs

Scratching at your door like a friend and a lover
Charming honey from the bees
Well, that thin veneer is only a cover
For old Mephistopheles

He's a devil dog, don't let him in
A devil dog comin' 'round again
Devil dog no matter what he says
He's a devil dog no matter how he begs

Well, he'll talk the sense right out of your head
With those sweet and tender lies
You'll see your virtue hanging on by a thread
Before you realize

He's a devil dog, don't let him in
A devil dog comin' 'round again
Devil dog no matter what he says
He's a devil dog no matter how he begs

That old dog will never be tame
He'll only keep you on his shelf
If you call his name, there's no one else to blame
You let him in yourself

He's a devil dog, don't let him in
A devil dog comin' 'round again
Devil dog no matter what he says
He's a devil dog no matter how he begs

Oh, stay away from my door you old devil dog
