If I Were the Devil Dear
w&m JSmith 2014


If I were the devil and I
Saw you comin'
I'd head for the hills
Just to keep you runnin’
That's what I'd do if I were
The devil dear

I would tell you that
Life’s a breeze
And I’d always be there
You could count on me
And that's what I'd do if I were
The devil dear

If I were the devil
I would not be lazy
I'd give you punctuation
Just to make you all crazy

I'd tempt Eve until she
Bit the fruit
Adam from that day on
Would have to wear a suit
And that's what I'd do if I were
The devil dear

I'd make you question and
Fight amongst yourselves
Steal your faith and give you
Fairies and elves
And that's what I'd do if I were The devil dear

I'd give you colors
No one's ever seen
No one would talk
Everybody would scream

You'd have longer wars
That made no sense
Reality TV
And no moral fence
I’d give you presidential Candidates
Thieves and liars all spewing hate
And that's what I'd do if I were
The devil dear
