"Three Beasts"

[ from the album "20 Vodka Jellies" (1996) ]

Lyrics

Three beasts are at the door for you
They offer the world and more for you
Three beasts are at the door
Three beasts are at the door

I let off the gun I trained on the sun but
The sun is still shining today
I ate all the food in the delicatessen
But never put on any weight
Here in this world where everything happens
None of it happens to me
I like to think I could outstare temptation
But I give no guarantee

Three devils, dare devils, horned devils
Summoned devils, come devils, bare devils
Be my, be my, be my, be my, be my, be my, come by, be my lover

Here in this world where everything happens
None of it happens to me
You are so puzzling, you'll still be struggling
In 2023
I let off the gun I trained on the sun but
The sun is still shining today
I know you've been hoping I was just joking
I know you've been hoping, I know you've been hoping

Three devils, dare devils, horned devils
Summoned devils, come devils, bare devils
Be my, be my, be my, be my, be my, be my, come by, be my lover

Three beasts are at the door for you
They offer the world and more for you
Three beasts are at the lift
Bearing a choice of gifts
