Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You look like an angel (look like an angel)
Walk like an angel (walk like an angel)
Talk like an angel
But I got wise

You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
Devil in disguise

You fooled me with your kisses
You cheated and you schemed
Heaven knows how you lied to me
You're not the way you seemed

You look like an angel (look like an angel)
Walk like an angel (walk like an angel)
Talk like an angel
But I got wise

You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
Devil in disguise, mhm

I thought that I was in heaven
But I was sure surprised
Heaven help me, I didn't see
The devil in your eyes

You look like an angel (look like an angel)
Walk like an angel (walk like an angel)
Talk like an angel
But I got wise

You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
Devil in disguise

You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are

Mhm (oh yes you are)
Devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
Devil in disguise
Oh yes you are




Devil in disguise
Oh yes you are

Overall Meaning

The song "Devil in Disguise" by Elvis Presley is about a woman who appears to be an angel but turns out to be the devil in disguise. The lyrics describe how the woman looks like an angel, walks like an angel, and talks like an angel, but the singer has figured out that she is not what she seems. He has been fooled by her kisses and schemes, and he realizes that she has lied to him. He thought he was in heaven but it turns out he was wrong. In the end, he warns others to beware of the devil in disguise.


The song can be interpreted in many ways, but most likely, it is about a woman who deceives the singer into thinking that she is something she is not. She is charming and beautiful, and she knows how to manipulate people. Her actions and words seem harmless, but the singer can see through her facade and knows that she is not trustworthy. The song is a warning to others to be careful of charming and manipulative people who may not have their best interests at heart.

Lyrics:
You look like an angel,
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel,
But I got wise —
You’re the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are,
The devil in disguise
Mmm

You fool me with your kisses,
You cheated and you schemed
Hell knows how you lied to me,
You’re not the way you seem

You look like an angel,
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel,
But I got wise —
You’re the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are,
The devil in disguise
Mmm

I thought that I was in Heaven,
But I was sure surprised,
Heaven, help me, I didn’t see
The devil in your eyes

You look like an angel,
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel,
But I got wise —
You’re the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are,
The devil in disguise

You’re the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are,
The devil in disguise
Oh yes you are,
The devil in disguise
Oh yes you are,
The devil in disguise
Oh yes you are,
The devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
