"That Ole Devil Called Love" lyrics - TONY BENNETT

"That Ole Devil Called Love"

Someone's whisperin' in my ear
I say, "No, no, go away."
But he don't hear
He follows me around
Builds me up, tears me down
Try my best to shake him
But he just hangs around

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 sun-of-a-gun again
He keeps telling me that I'm the lucky one again
But I still have that rain
I still have those tears
And those rocks in my heart

Suppose I didn't stay and ran away
Wouldn't play
That devil-what a potion he would brew
He'd follow me around
Build me up, tear me down
I'd be so bewildered
I wouldn't know what to do

Might as well give up that fight again
I know darn well he'll convince me
That he's right again
When he sings that siren song
I just gotta tag along
With that ole devil called love
