Jazz Devil (Adamson Barry)

When god appeared before me I was drowning in my pool I was 50 over 30 But looking real cool He said a life of tedious insights And an overflowing cup Just don't cut the mustard I'm afraid you can't come up I fell way down it seemed Into a bottomless pit A sign saying Hotel Hades Was the only thing a'lit Beezelbub was hanging But he wouldn't cut no slack He told me the Big Cat has spoken I'm afraid you're going back As the Jazz Devil Full and greedy I'm the Jazz Devil Libido needy I'm the Jazz Devil Flymeat in the mix Where you can call me Agent Double O 666 I cruised the streets of London With one thing on my mind Got a passport labelled fun Of the interactive kind But first I found some cats And they were howling at the moon I told them "You play the instruments And I'll play the baffoon" We broke into a sombre march Called Misery and Woe And then we upped the tempo Until the juice began to flow All a sudden this chick called Mimi Appeared right out the blue Saying "I've been searching for someone And now I know who" Jazz Devil Sick and racy I'm the Jazz Devil But very tasty I'm the Jazz Devil Flymeat in the mix Where you can call me Agent Double O 666 Me and Mimi settled down In the family kinda way Won 10 million on the lottery Without no debts to pay And in the wee small hours When there was noplace left to spend We'd open up each other So the days would never end Some jealous cats caught wind of this And armed up to the teeth They came in search of me and she With pistols underneath And they caught me going down A thing that made me just see red And as Mimi hit the no return They filled me full of lead Damn I'm dead When god appeared before me I was lying in a pool I was 50 over 30 But looking real cool He said a life of tedious insights And a tendency to crack Just don't cut the mustard Time to head on back I fell way down I knew Into a bottomless pit (Oh no here we go) A sign saying Hotel Hades Was the only thing a'lit Beezelbub was there a'hanging But he wouldn't cut no slack He told me the Big Cat has spoken Again you're going back As the Jazz Devil Every moment hail the Jazz Devil As long as days keep dawning I'm the Jazz Devil Flymeat in the mix Where you can call me Agent Double O 666
