ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL lyrics - The Devil Ain't Lazy

ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL
"The Devil Ain't Lazy"

The devil ain't lazy (no sirree)
The devil ain't lazy (no sirree)
He runs around with sticks and stones
Passes out his moans and groans
The devil ain't no lazy bones
He works 24 hours a day

He likes to see us fight and fuss
Makes us mean enough to cuss
And then he blames it all on us
He works 24 hours a day

He travels like a lightnin' streak
And strikes from town to town
And if he gets you when you're weak
He'll tear your playhouse down

He tells us he won't hurt a fly
Then he makes us steal and lie
Keeps us sinnin' ‘til we die
He works 24 hours a day

He gets his pitch fork out each night
He gives the folks an awful fright
I think he does it just for spite
He works 24 hours a day

He tells us how to find success
I know he'll wind up in distress
The devil is an awful mess
He works 24 hours a day

He likes to see things scorch and burn
So don't make no excuse
If he gets to you he'll turn you
Every which way but loose

When you think you're strong and brave
Smart enough to not behave
Then you've got one foot in the grave
He works 24 hours a day
