Steve Miller Band – Evil lyrics

Recorded live at the Aquarius Theatre, Boston
You know
If somebody, somewhere done you wrong
Oh, don't worry about your revenge, no

I said if somebody, somewhere done you wrong
Oh, don't worry about your revenge, no no
'Cause that's when evil
Oh, evil slips on in

Hey, when I first met you baby
You were nothing but a child
When I first met you baby
I used to let you run wild

But somewhere, somehow
Lord, I don't know how
All your goodness
Slipped away

And that's when evil
Evil let it stay
Evil let it stay, yeah

Evil's with me in the morning
Evil's with me and I can't get away, no
But there's gonna come a time
Oh, when somebody else is gonna pay
Gonna pay baby
