Look out your window, baby, there's a scene you'd like to catch
The band is playing "Dixie," a man got his hand outstretched
Could be the fuhrer, could be the local priest
You know, sometimes Satan, you know, he come as a man of peace

He got sweet gift of gab, he got harmonious tongue
He know every song of love that ever has been sung
Good intentions can be evil, both hands can be full of grease
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Well, first he's in the background, then he's in the front
Both eyes are lookin' like they're on a rabbit hunt
Nobody can see through him, no, not even the chief of police
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Well, he catch you when you're hopin' for a glimpse of the sun
Catch you when your trouble feel like they weigh a ton
He could be standin' next to you, the person that you'd notice least
I hear that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Well, he can be fascinating, he can be dull
He can ride down Niagara Falls in the barrels of your skull
I can smell somethin' cookin', I can tell there's goin' to be a feast
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

He's a great humanitarian, he's a great philanthropist
He knows just where to touch you, honey and how you like to be kissed
He'll put both his arms around you
You can feel that tender touch of the beast
You know, sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Well, the howlin' wolf will howl tonight, the king snake will crawl
Trees that've stood for a thousand years, suddenly will fall
Wanna get married? Do it now, tomorrow all activity will cease
You know, sometimes Satan come as a man of peace

Somewhere mama's weepin' for her blue-eyed boy
She's holdin' them a little white shoes and that little broken toy
And he's followin' a star
The same one them three men followed from the east
I hear, sometimes Satan come as a man of peace, oh yeah
