The Devil Made Me Do It
Jinx - 1982

Well the devil made me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no chance at all.

What did I do that was so bad, 
To go and get myself arrested?
Just in town to have some fun, 
But I ended up in the trash can.
There I was in the witness stand, 
My eyes turned towards the jury,
Trying to recall what went wrong last night, 
But it won't come right back to me.

Yeah, the devil made me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
Well, the devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no mind at all.

The lawyer said, "Son, won't you plead the fifth, 
And don't speak unless requested".
Using all the words at his command, 
His skills were sorely tested.
Then to my complete surprise, 
They went and called a hostile witness,
The devil himself, well he took the stand,
And that's where my case rested.

Well, the devil drove me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
Well, the demon drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no chance at all.

What did I do that was so bad, 
To go and get myself arrested?
Well, I  was just in town to have some fun, 
But I ended up in the trash can.
There I was in the witness box, 
My eyes turned towards the jury,
Trying to recall what went wrong last night, 
But it won't come right back to me.

Well, the devil made me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no mind at all.

The devil made me do it, do it, do it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no chance at all.

Well, the devil drove me to it, to it, to it,
The devil made me trip and fall,
Well, the demon drove me to it, to it, to it,
Till I had no chance at all, 
Till I had no chance at all
Till I had no mind at all.

Ohhh..that's right...oh yea
