THAT OLD DEVIL (WON'T GET ME) (Dave Barbour / Peggy Lee) Peggy Lee - 1951 Who's that whisperin' in my ear Why, you old devil, whatcha doin' here If you try to tell me that he's not my friend And I won't stick till the very end You just don't know how far my back will bend That old devil won't get me An' if I start to worry when the rent's not paid And I'm not countin' the money I've made I'll just keep goin' till I make the grade That old devil won't get me 'Cause he don't know what I know That I love him left and right And when I'm smilin' in his eyes How's he gonna pick a fight And when my cup is empty and the water goes by Well, doncha think I'm gonna bat my eye 'Cause I have water when the well runs dry That old devil won't get me (Orchestral Break) (You know things aren't what they used to be) Keep on a-talkin' (Business is pretty bad all over) Keep on a-walkin' (I don't know, some folks say that if you don't.....) Don't wanna hear you (Well, I don't know how things'll turn out) That don't fear you If my cup is empty when the water goes by Well, doncha think I'm gonna bat my eye 'Cause I have water when the well runs dry That ol' devil won't get me You old devil, hah-hah, you won't get me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2011)
