Devil Came A Calling

This song is by Prefab Sprout and appears on the album Crimson/Red (2013).

The devil came a calling
He took a midnight stroll
I asked him what he wanted,
He said, "your immortal soul"
For fifty years I'll spoil you
Like the only man alive
With power, wealth,
A mansion on Fellatio Drive

The devil came a calling
All smiles and flattery
In his hands a contract
Exclusively for me
When the fifty years are over,
I asked "what happens then?"
He pretended not to hear me,
But he offered me his pen

He showed me a house
It was as big as a star
He said to me "Patrick,
Whad'ya thinks so far?"

The devil came a calling
No brimstone, fire, no rain
In fact I found him charming,
Articulate, urbane
The devil came a calling
Charisma all the way
Imagine being master
Of all that you survey

He showed me his world,
Hell, he threw me the keys
Introduced me to women -
They went down on their knees

The devil came a calling
He took a midnight stroll
I asked him what he wanted,
He said "your immortal soul"

In his hands were papers
He told me they were signed
My memory is hazy
I'm sure that I declined

The devil came a calling
No brimstone, fire, no rain
In fact I found him charming,
Articulate, urbane

In his hands were papers
He showed me they were signed
My memory is hazy
I thought that I declined
My memory is hazy
I'm sure that I declined

The devil came a calling
The devil came a calling
