Cunning is the Devil
Parody of "Running with the Devil" by Van Halen
(2 Corinthians 2:11, 4:3-4; Genesis 3:1; Revelation 12:9, 20:2)

I lived my life like there's no good morals
Didn't follow God I laughed at Sheol
He's not extinct -- no stegosaurus
Yes, God is livin' and old Satan's real

Oooh yeah hey-uh-uhh
Cunning is the Devil
Uh huh yeah-eah
Woo hoo woo
Cunning is the Devil
He'll tell you all to doubt it

I found the sinful life ain't so simple
Ain't no snowplows -- on that road
It got so rough too rough to "four-wheel"
It's like my body Satan controlled

Ah yeah-eh-eh!
Cunning is the Devil
God said it, baby you know He ain't lyin' to you
He's only gonna tell you what's right -- uhhh yeah
Cunning is the Devil
Guess I'm scammed Yeah!

You know I -- I found the sinful life weren't so simple, no
And I slumped down from that load
I got so low so low I could kneel
I talked to God and -- gave Him control

Uhhh yeah
Come and leave the Devil
Oh, God Oh, God, I'm coming! Ahhhhh, yeah
Come and leave the Devil
Uh! Uh! I don't want more time

Heyyyyy yeah!
Come and leave the Devil
Uh yuh Uh yuhhhh yeah!
Come and leave the Devil
Wwoo! Wwwoo!
Come and leave the Devil
Uh huh, yeah! Uh huh, yeah! Uh-uh huh, yeah!
Come and leave the Devil
Ooo!

Genesis 3:1
Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had
made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any
tree in the garden'?"
