Billie Holiday – That Ole Devil Called Love lyrics

Allan Roberts / Doris Fisher

It's that ole devil called love again
Gets behind me and keeps giving me that shove again
Puttin' rain in my eyes
Tears in my dreams
And rocks in my heart

It's that sly ole son-of-a-gun again
He keeps telling me that I'm the lucky one again
But I still have that rain
Still have those tears
And those rocks in my heart

Suppose I didn't stay, ran away
Wouldn't play
That devil-what a potion he would brew
He'd follow me around
Build me up, tear me down
Till I'd be so bewildered
I wouldn't know what to do

Might as well give up the fight again
I know darn well he'll convince me
That he's right again
When he sings that siren song
I just gotta tag along
With that ole devil called love

He'd follow around
Build me up, tear me down
Till I'd be so bewildered
I wouldn't know what to do
