Lil’ Devil

Category: My Failed Music Career | No comments

The third of the Dizzyland Tapes. A trio of 16-track demos we put together at a friend’s studio so that we had material together for club owners, & potential managers. We were hoping to snag a record deal. Little did we know it was early 1991, and by the end of the year, our career would be over thanks to a band called Nirvana.

This was about my roommate Christine. She was a stripper at a club on Boston’s North Shore. A beautiful girl, who knew how to tease like no other. Meanwhile, she was the sweetest, nicest girl. Nobody would’ve ever known. But she certainly inspired us to write a song about how girls tease and never follow through. I think Chris was flattered that we used her…so to speak.

No…we never slept with her. I think we wanted to though.

Little Devil, I see that look in yer eye…
Makes me think, you’re an angel-in-disguise
Things that you do, when you swing your hips
That innocent smile, doesn’t quite fit…anymore

Oooh…when I see the way that you walk
Yes…an’ I hear those words that you talk

You strut your stuff. Cos’ you know that you’re just havin’ fun
Playin’ it tough. Cos’ you know that the damage is done

Little Devil, I’d like to take you home
But, it looks like I’m goin’ home all alone
All night long, I thought you’d wanna please
But, now I know deep inside that, you’re gonna tease me

Oooh…I didn’t get a chance to catch your name
Oh…I guess it doesn’t matter. Cos’ you’re all the same

You strut your stuff. Cos’ you know that you’re just havin’ fun
Play it tough. Cos’ you know that the damage is done
It’s all a game to you, you think you can win
Well, if that’s the case, this shot you take on the chin
…on the chin

(solo)

You strut your stuff. Cos’ you know that you’re just havin’ fun
Play it tough. Cos’ you know that the damage is done
It’s all a game to you, you think you can win
Well, if that’s the case, this shot you take on the chin…On the chin. On the chin.

Cos’ I’m not like the other guys
I can see you with my own two eyes
No surprises at all
Oh! Oh! Oh!

Go, Little Devil!
