Rick Springfield – The Devil That You Know lyrics
I'm the devil that you know
Baby, I know what you want

I know you ask for miracles
You people are good at that
You're waiting for the man
To pull a rabbit from his hat
But I can get you off
Yeah, bad boys are an aphrodisiac
I promise baby, that I can be anything you want
I'm the devil that you know
Or the devil that you don't

You all like the familiar
You all like the routine
You all wish you knew what you know
And still be seventeen
I had a talk with Jesus
I said, "Man, you're just part of the machine"
He unfriended me on Facebook
I said, "oh, no you don't"
I'm the devil that you know
Baby, I know what you want

Now, people loosen up
He may have loved you once
But why you think God quit
Performing all his stunts?
You like the burning bush
His badass victors on the battlefronts

Where's that angry guy smitin'
Heathens and sending plagues?
God has left the building
You can raise the barricades
Sing it for me, baby
Sing your solemn song

Listen to me
Everything you do and say is wrong
Your very best interest at heart
You know I've had them all along
Everyone gets nervous
When they face the great unknown
Do you want the devil that you know
Or the devil that you don't?

I used to like you better
When you had that diamond smile
You close your knees, tossed the keys
And joined the rank and file
Your pretty pink Ferrari
Don't give joy rides in exile
Come back to me, baby
Just lose that chaperone
I'm the devil that you know
Not the devil that you don't

You're looking up to heaven
Dreaming on a star
You can't reach it, baby
Not from where you are
You stopped drinking double bloody mary's
At the airport bar
You're scared to make a move
It's so not what you want
You're caught between the devil that you know
And the devil that you don't!
