THE DEVIL LAUGHED
The Devil whispered in my ear
He told me "come this way",
His offer sounded thrilling
So I followed him that day.
It was a day like any other
I felt quiet, peaceful, kind,
But the Devil laughed as he took my soul
And then he ruled my mind.
I was filled with thoughts of murder
My heart turned cold as steel
And as the Devil laughed I raised the knife
And a stranger I did kill.
Now the Devil owned me
Never would we part
And I could hear the Devil laughing
Oh! how the Devil laughed.
In the death cell as I waited,
There to meet myfate,
I could hear the Devil laughing
As they marched me through the gate.
As they put the noose around my neck
I scream to God above
But my soul is lost - so high the cost -
And I can hear the Devil laugh.
If one day you hear him calling
If he tells you "come this way"
Don't say OK - run the other way
Or you will hear the Devil laugh.
