The Knack – Pay The Devil (Ooo, Baby. Ooo) lyrics

Ooo, baby
Ooo ooo, baby, ooo
Got to learn to give
The devil his due

You've got it made
And you made it your way
Life's looking great
Now you've found
The right game to play

Came a long way
From the valley
Aimed so high
Shot so true

Ooo, baby
Ooo ooo, baby, ooo
Everybody got to
Read the reviews
Ooo, baby, ooo, even you
Got to learn to give
The devil his due

I'm not alone
I'm lonely for you
Won't use the phone
No, I don't want
To say it's true

Still, your frame
Hangs in the gallery
The paint is dry
The pain's still new


Ah, love conquers all
When after all it was you
Just you, you, you, you, you


Oh, yeah
You got to learn to
Give the devil his due
Yes, you do
