If The Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets)

Diablo motors had a hell of a sale, downtown yesterday
Word got around, no money down, take years and years to pay
When I got there the lot was bare, but the salesman said, "Hold on"
For a little cash, I gotta two-tone Nash out behind the barn

If the Devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band and a twelve girl chorus line
I'd raise some loot in a three piece suit, give 'em one dance for a dime
If the Devil Danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine

Well, he said, "Friend it ain't the end, let's see what I can do
If you own a home, I've got a loan tailor made for you"
Then above the racket a voice in my jacket said, "I'll tote the note"
The Devil made me do it, talked me in to it and that was all she wrote

If the Devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band and a twelve girl chorus line
I'd raise some loot in a three piece suit, give 'em one dance for a dime
If the Devil Danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine

They say debt is a bottomless pit where the Devil likes to play
I'd sell my soul to get out of this hole, but there'd be hell to pay

If the Devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band and a twelve girl chorus line
I'd raise some loot in a three piece suit, give 'em one dance for a dime
If the Devil Danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine
