​The Devil Is Busy

This song is by Barbara Mason and appears on the album Transition (1974).

The devil sure is busy
The devil sure is busy
He's in every city

Working on your soul is his main goal
Making you think evil thoughts is always what he's trying to do
He'll make you choose between bad or good
Oh better beware

The devil sure is busy
He's in every city

Whispering in your ear plain and clear
You shouldn't listen you oughta have fear

The devil sure is busy
He's in every city

When your mind is idle that's when he's most strong
He'll make you choose right from wrong
Then you do it, you give in
Then he wins

The devil sure is busy
He's in every city
He's so busy
He's in every city
He's in Philadelphia, PA
He's in Atlanta, GA
He's in Alabama
He's in California
He's in Texas
He's in New York City
The devil sure is busy
He's got a thing
Said the devil, he's got a thing
He wants to work on you
He wants to work on me
Oh devil, Lucifer
You're too busy for me
You're too busy for me
You're in every city
Causing wars, causing crime, causing
You won't ever stay away from me
Don't want no part of you
Because you're too busy
And if you let him he'll get to you
But the devil sure is busy
He's in every city
I don't want being a part of that old devil
He'll work a spell on you
The old devil, stay away
You will never stay away
Stay away, don't come near me today
No don't you do that
The devil sure is busy
He's in every city
Working on your mind
Work a thing
He's almost running out of time
Don't let him get to you
