THAT OLE DEVIL CALLED LOVE written by Doris Fischer and Allan Roberts, 1944. After Billie Holiday.


it's that ole devil called love again
gets behind me and keeps giving me that shove again
putting rain in my eyes
tears in my dreams
and rocks in my heart

it's that sly old son-of-a-gun again
he keeps telling me that I'm the lucky one again
but I still have that rain
still have these tears
and these rocks in my heart

suppose I didn't stay?
ran away?
wouldn't play?
the devil what a potion he would brew
he'd follow me around
lift me up
and tear me down
'til I'd be so bewildered
I wouldn't know what to do

might as well give up the fight again
I know damn well he'll convince me he's right again
when he sings that siren song
I got to sing along
with that ole devil called love
with that ole devil called love
