Mike Ness – The Devil In Miss Jones lyrics

The day of wine and roses were a long time ago. The proms. teenage cruisin'and the picture show. You tried so hard to fix your outsides until you realized that I took everything dear inside.

Give me your heart, give me your soul. I'll take you when you're young The devil in Miss Jones.

Your daddy had a funny way of showing you his love. It's a shame you've hid well from the Lord up above. There's something that burns like a fire, and you realize you've been blessed with a wild desire.

Repeat Chorus

Your parochial background vanished in the wind Perhaps a pornographic future and a million dollar friend you tried so hard to always be the one Your loved by all men, but respected by none.

Repeat Chorus

I'll take you when you're young and I'll leave you when you're old.
