"The Devil Ain't Lazy" lyrics

The Devil Ain't Lazy

(With The blind boys of Alabama)

The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
He runs around with sticks and stones
And passes out his moans and groans
The devil ain't no lazy bones
He works twenty-four hours a day

The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
He likes to see us fight and fuss
Makes us mean enough to cuss
And then he blames it all on us
He works twenty-four hours a day

He travels like a lightning streak
And strikes from town to town
And if he gets you when you're weak
He'll tear your playhouse down

The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
He tells us he won't hurt a fly
Then he makes us steal and lie
Keeps us sinning till we die
He works twenty-four hours a day

The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
He gets his pitch fork out each night
To give the folks an awful fright
I think he does it just for spite
He works twenty-four hours a day

The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
He tells us how to find success
I know he'll wind up in distress
The devil is an awful mess
He works twenty-four hours a day

He likes to see things scorch and burn
So don't make no excuse
And if he gets to you he'll turn you
Every which way but loose

The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
The devil ain't lazy
No sirree
So when you think you're strong and brave
Smart enough to not behave
Then you've got one foot in the grave
He works twenty-four hours a day
Twenty-four hours a day
