The Devil Made Me Do It
Golden Earring Lyrics


All set, the court's in session
This judge, got no compassion
Witness, show me your right hand
I swear, nothing but the truth now

I was alright 'til she came along
I was alright, then it all went wrong

Yeah, the devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)
It was the act of a man possessed now (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Yeah, the devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Your honor, I plead innocent

D.A.'s, got a mighty strong case
Lawman, saw the whole thing
Confess, yeah, I stole that fur coat
Confess, I stole a BMW
Confess, I was only trying, to keep my baby satisfied
Bullshit, that's the truth now
Bullshit, so help me God

I was alright 'til she came along
I was alright, then it all went wrong

Yeah, the devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)
It was the act of a man possessed now (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Yeah, the devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Your honor, I am innocent (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Innocent (oh, oh, oh, oh)

See her slide out of her negligee
Her skin was hot, touch intoxicating
And if you were me, you would have done the same
So spare me the gutter, save me from the ball and chain

The devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)
It was the act of a man possessed now (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Yeah, the devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Your honor, I am innocent (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Innocent

Yeah, the devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)
It was an act of self defense now (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Yeah, the devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Your honor, it was an accident (oh, oh, oh, oh)

The devil made me do it (oh, oh, oh, oh)

Still a great song to listen to after 30 years when you get into a bar fight.

Josué Jiménez

And still does. The best of the Best.

Andrew Ottaviani

I love this video , I can't understand why this band isn't more known over here as much, in the states. The band is very good. I like a lot of this group's songs.

Matt Nelson

2:25 in the song is awesome. Very underrated band.
