Well, the devil made me do it, do it, do it
The devil made me trip and fall
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it
Till I had no chance at all

What did I do that was so bad, to go and get myself arrested?
Just hit town to have some fun, but I ended up in the trash can
There I was in the witness stand, my eyes turned towards the jury
Trying to recall what went wrong last night, but it won't come right back to me

Well, the devil made me do it, do it, do it
The devil made me trip and fall
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it
Till I had no chance at all

The lawyer said, "Son, won't you plead the fifth, and don't speak unless requested"
Using all the words at his command, his skills were sorely tested
Then, to my complete surprise, they went and called a hostile witness
The devil himself, well he took the stand and that's where my case rested

Well, the devil made me do it, do it, do it
The devil made me trip and fall
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it
Till I had no chance at all

What did I do that was so bad, to go and get myself arrested?
Well, I was just in town to have some fun, but I ended up in the trash can
There I was in the witness box, my eyes turned towards the jury
Trying to recall what went wrong last night, but it won't come back to me

Well, the devil made me do it, do it, do it
The devil made me trip and fall
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it
Till I had no chance at all

Well, the devil made me do it, do it, do it
The devil made me trip and fall
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it
Till I had no chance at all

Well, the devil drove me to it, to it, to it
The devil made me trip and fall
The devil drove me to it, to it, to it
Till I had no chance at all, till I had no chance at all
Till I had no mind at all
