The Devil Ain't Lazy - written by Fred Rose in Oct. 1947 The devil ain't lazy - no sirree The devil ain't lazy - no sirree Runs around with sticks and stones passes out his moans and groansthe devil ain't no lazy bones
He works 24 hours a day
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
He likes to see us fight and fussmakes us mean enough to cussthen he blames it all on us
He works 24 hours a day The devil ain't lazy - no sirree The devil ain't lazy - no sirree He travels like a lightnin' streak and strikes from town to townand if he gets you when you're weakhe'll tear your playhouse down
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
He tells us he won't hurt a flythen he makes us steal and liekeeps us sinnin' till we die
He works 24 hours a day
All right...(16 bar musical Interlude) Oh the devil ain't lazy - no sirree
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
He gets his pitchfork out each nightgives the folks an awful fright
I think he does it just for spite
He works 24 hours a day
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
Tells us how to find successhe knows we'll wind up in distressthe de-vil is an aw-ful mess
He works 24 hours a day
He likes to see things scorch and burnso don't make no excuseif he catches you he'll turn you anyway but loose
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
The devil ain't lazy - no sirree
So if ya' think you're strong and bravesmart enough to not behaveyou've got one foot in the grave
He works 24 hours a day!
