607 ~ Smilin' Devil - Poem by stan pelfrey

you're an angel, baby
but you've been doin' me wrong
playin' both sides of your shoulder
you keep stringin' me along

you think i don't know it
but i've got news for you
every step you take away from me
i'm watchin' over you

keep usin' other men for your satisfaction
and givin' me your cold reactions
but you don't know half a fraction
about schemes i've put into action

you keep thinkin' i'm playin' on the level
but i'm a smilin' devil
smilin' devil...smilin' devil...smilin' devil yeah...

you think you're so deceptive
you’re such a sexahlilthing
but your halo’s slippin’
and i’m gonna clip your wings

you keep eatin’ at my table
and pissin’ on my plate
you can go on and fly away, now
i’ll take my chance with fate

thought we’d be together ‘til we died
but you keep usin’ me and telling lies
you’ve put me on a limb and hung me out to dry
and you’re still not, and never will be, satisfied

you keep thinkin' i'm playin' on the level
but i'm a smilin' devil
smilin' devil...smilin' devil...smilin' devil yeah...
