That Ole Devil Called Love

Billie Holiday


It's that ole devil called love again
Gets behind me and keeps giving me that shove again
Put a rain in my eyes
Tears in my dreams
And rocks in my heart

It's that sly ole-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 and run away
Wouldn't play
That devil-what a potion he would brew
He'd follow me around
Bill 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 ole devil called love

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