The Devil Made Me Do That Lyrics

I didn't mean to tell your boss he was a pompous twat -
The devil made me do that.
Now how was I supposed to know I would come out with that?
The devil made me do that.
Well OK, it was the wrong thing to say,
But hey, it was a crap job anyway!
So please - come on, put down the baseball bat - don't let
The devil made you do that.

You told me not to come indoors with dogshit on my shoes.
The devil made me do that.
Once I saw the marks I knew there was no time to lose.
The devil made me do that.

Brushed them off with the greatest care,
You'd have never known they were there.
Sorry that I used the brush you used to brush your hair,
The devil made me do that.

Behaving well is hard for me, I'm the fun-loving sort.
I know you're trying to civilise me, and it's taking longer than we thought!

I called "Look out!" before I threw up on your sister's dress.
The devil made me do that.
If she'd moved fast enough it wouldn't have made such a mess,
The devil made me do that.
Hard to see why she was so mad at me -
The flowere hid it, you'll agree -
In here wedding photo album you would never guess
The devil made me do that.

I told you from the start I had my flaws
You know that, heart and soul, I'm yours - so please
Won't you let me back indoors ................. or at least
- Throw me my trousers!
