Devil's Grin

Devil’s Grin
Words & Music – Pat James

Around quarter to 10 last night
Where the story begins
Sat down with a few of the boys
And she walked in
Red hair and skin so fair
And a Devil’s Grin
And I knew right away when she looked my way
That I would do anything
Things get a little crazy
Around quarter to one
We’re on a first name basis
No more questions son

We all come for the same thing
No matter what you say
We can get a little crazy here
Some like it that way
It don’t matter if you’re rich or poor
You can come right in
If you’re ready and willing and able to move
With a bit of sin
Things get a little crazy
Another shot of rye
When the room starts spinning
You won’t need no alibi

All I know is I’ve seen this look before
And I am sure to end up praying on the bathroom floor
Even though I say I won’t do this again
I know that I’ll be standing here with the Devil’s Grin

Woke up this morning
Saw the Devil’s Grin
Looked a little bit closer
Saw it was my reflection
Oh man you’re telling me
That was no dream last night
I came and I saw and I did and I went
And I didn’t put up a fight
Things get a little crazy
A double shot of rye
When the room starts spinning
You won’t need no alibi

All I know is I’ve seen this look before
And I am sure to end up praying on the bathroom floor
Even though I say I won’t do this again
I know that I’ll be standing here with the Devil’s Grin
