Devil on a string lyrics

Got him by the horns
Got him by the nose
Got him by the tail
Got him by the toes
You've got me by the hand
Let's see where it goes
It's the devil, devil on a string
It's the devil, devil on a string.

It's that sudden itch
You'll never scratch
And if you did
What would you catch?
It's the devil, devil on a string
It's the devil, devil on a string

I'm in with you, baby

Salvation pie, salvation pie
We gotta get a slice before you die

Probably giftwrapped
Tied with a bow
Got me check mate
Nowhere to go
Down on the groove
Where the devil men grow
It's the devil, devil on a string
It's the devil, devil on a string
It's the devil, devil on a string.

You make me feel so special
You make me feel so special

Death of deep
On a primrose hell
If the devil don't get me
You will.
