Someone's whisp'rin' in my ear, I say no, no, go away, but he don't hear, he follows me around, builds me up, tears me down, I try my best to shake him but he just hangs around. It's that It's that ole devil called love again, Gets behind me and keeps giving me that shove again, Putting rain in my eyes, tears in my dreams, And rocks in my heart, It's that sly son of a gun again, He keeps telling me that I'm the lucky one again, But I still have that rain, still have those tears And those rocks in my heart. Suppose I didn't stay, ran away, wouldn't play, That devil what a potion he would brew. He'd follow me around, build me up, tear me down, 'til I'd be so bewildered, I wouldn't know what to do, Might as well give up the fight again, I know darn well he'll convince me that he's right again, When he sings that siren song, I just gotta tag along, With that ole devil called love. He'd follow me around, build me up, tear me down, 'til I'd be so bewildered, I wouldn't know what to do, Might as well give up the fight again, I know darn well he'll convince me that he's right again, When he sings that siren song, I just gotta tag along, With that ole devil called love.
