The Devil Has All The Best Tunes

La la la la la la la-la
La la la la la la la-la-la
La la la la la la la-la
La la la la la la la-la-la

Heads or tails once I forget
I'm trying to master a new alphabet
Far too obliging to ever admit
I've never been keen on this 'here boy' and 'sit'

So lyrically simple, like Ave Maria

I don't want that ghost coming back again
You will play fair
For when I say that this is double or quits
I double and stay-ay-ay

One fine day, there must be someone saying, I can say
With truth in my heart
No sub-clauses in the way, and now make a start.

The devil always has the finest tunes,
But of course it's always over much too soon.

La la la la la la la-la
La la la la la la la-la-la
La la la la la la la-la
La la la la la la la-la-la

Open yolk, there was a time I'd smile, tell (pretty lies)
Like I want you then so I want you now
Guiding will perpetuate the mess, as I count (on my fingers)
That we add up, to so much worse

People can't be honeybees, always

Fee-fi-fee, fo-fi-fum
I see you have met my stumbling tongue
Just one more faux pas that I can commit
Learning the French for my eternal wit

So lyrically simple, like Ave Maria

I'm standing outside this narrative
What can I do, should I feign sleep
Or, just cloister my heart, and bury it deep.

One fine day, there must be someone saying, I can say
With truth in my heart
No sub-clauses in the way, and now make a start.

The devil always has the finest tunes,
But of course it's always over much too soon.

There must be someone saying, I can say
With truth in my heart
Paul McCartney's 'Yesterday,' and now make a start.

The devil always has the finest tunes,
But of course it's always over much too soon.

There must be someone saying, I can say
With truth in my heart
Paul McCartney's 'Yesterday,' and now make a start.

The devil always has the finest tunes,
But of course it's always over much too soon.

La la la la la la la-la
La la la la la la la-la-la
La la la la la la la-la
La la la la la la la-la-la
