Saturday Night With Mr. C. ~ LSP-1971
 
Between the Devil
and the Deep Blue Sea
 
I don't want you,
But I hate to lose you, 
You got me in between 
The devil and the deep blue sea! 
 
I forgive you,
'Cause I can't forget you, 
You got me in between 
The devil and the deep blue sea! 
 
I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come a knockin' at my door 
Fate seems to give my heart a twist 
And I keep runnin' back for more!
 
I should hate you,
But I guess I love you, 
You got me in between 
The devil and the deep blue sea! 
 
< instrumental bridge >
 
You got me in between 
The devil and the deep blue sea! 
 
< instrumental bridge >
 
Hmm, you got me in between 
The devil and the deep blue sea! 
 
I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come a knockin' at my door 
Fate seems to give my heart a twist 
And I keep runnin' back for more!
 
Hmm, I should hate you,
But I guess I love you, 
You got me in between 
The devil and the deep blue sea! 
 
You got me in between 
The devil . . . and the deep blue sea! 
. . . and the deep blue sea!
