( arthur johnson & sam coslow )
I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn
Sometimes
It's like being in chains
Sometimes I hang my head
In chains
When people see me
They scandalize my name
I'm going down
To the devil's daughter
I'm gonna drown
In that troubled water
It's coming round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one
I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn
Sometimes it's like
Being in chains
Sometimes I hang my head
In chains
When people see me
They scandalize my name
I'm going down
To the devil's daughter
I'm gonna drown
In that troubled water
It's coming round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one
I must be
