(Chorus)
Demonic Possession
His court's in session
I sign my confession
Demonic Possession

It was raining on the day she told me
Them things that fella sold me
Mama wasn't there to scold me
No prison or cell could hold me
I still recall the date
I'z probably about eight
When I sealed my fate
You honor I rightly state
(Repeat chorus)

Suddenly I had a foot hold
I became such a butthole
I don't need nobody consoling me
No one but the devil controlling me

I can kick ass and talk backwards
I hang out with a whole bunch of slackers
And I know I can get some help from him
I listen to a lot of Led Zeppelin
(Repeat chorus)

I got so much money I don't need smarts
My records are flying to the top of the charts
And I'm eating in all those fancy restaurants
And Hanging out with Jerry Lee Lewis
And I owe it all to him
Oh, the shape I'm in
The devil says the only thing that's buggin him
Is Hell's filling up with Republicans
(Repeat chorus twice)
