There's a devil waiting outside your door 
(How much longer?) 
There's a devil waiting outside your door 
And he's bucking and braying and pawing at the floor 
And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls, oh yeah 
There's a devil waiting outside your door 
He's weak with evil and broken by the world 
He's shouting your name and he's asking for more, give him more, give him more 
There's a devil waiting outside your door, oh yeah 

Loverman! Since the world began 
Forever, amen till end of time 
Take off that dress I'm coming down, I'm your loverman 
'Cause I am what I am, what I am, what I am 

L is for love, baby 
O is for only you that I do 
V is for loving virtually all that you are 
E is for loving almost everything that you do 
R is for rape me and
M is for murder me and
A is for answering all of my prayers 
N is for knowing your loverman's going to 
Be the answer to all of yours 

Loverman! Till the bitter end 
While empires burn down forever and ever 
And ever and ever amen, I'm your loverman 
So help me, baby so help me 
'Cause I am what I am, what I am what I am, what I am 

I'll be your loverman! 

There's a devil crawling along your floor 
There's a devil crawling along your floor 
With a trembling heart, he's come through the door 
With his strain and sex and his jumping paw, oh yeah 
There's a devil crawling along your floor 
And he's old and he's stupid and 
He's hungry and he's sore 
And he's lame and he's blind 
And he's dirty and he's poor 
Give him more, give him more,  give him more, give him more, give him more, give him more
There's a devil crawling along your floor, oh yeah
 
Loverman! Now here I stand, forever amen 
'Cause I am what I am, what I am, what I am, what I am
Forgive me baby, my hands are tied 
And I got no choice, no I got no choice at all 

I'll say it again 
L is for love and
O is for o yes I do 
V is for virtue, so I ain't gonna hurt you 
E is for even if you want me to 
R is for render unto me, baby 
M is for that which is mine and
A is for any old how, darling and
N is for any old time 

I'll be your loverman! I got a master plan 
To take off your dress and be your man 
Seize the throne, seize the mantle 
Seize the crown 'cause I am what I am, what I am, what I am, what I am 
Your loverman! 

There's a devil lying by your side 
You might think he's asleep 
But look at his eyes 
He wants you, baby, to be his bride 
There's a devil lying by your side, oh yeah
 
Oh he's a loverman! 
Oh he's a loverman!
Can you comphrend
'Cause I am what I am, what I am, what I am, what I am, what I am, what I am, what I am
'Cause he's a loverman!
A real loverman!
A real loverman!
