Loverman
There's a devil waitin' outside your door
"(How much longer?)"
There's a devil waitin' outside your door
"(How much longer?)"
And he's buckin' and brayin' and pawin' at the floor
"(How much longer?)"
And he's howlin' with pain and crawlin' up the walls
"(How much longer?)"

There's a devil waitin' outside your door
"(How much longer?)"
And he's weak with evil and broken by the world
"(How much longer?)"
And he's shoutin' your name and askin' for more
"(How much longer?)"
There's a devil waitin' outside your door
"(How much longer?)"

There's a devil crawlin' along your floor
"(How much longer?)"
There's a devil crawlin' along your floor
"(How much longer?)"
With a tremblin' heart, he's comin' through your door
"(How much longer?)"
With his strainin' sex in his jumpin' paw
"(How much longer?)"

There's a devil crawlin' along your floor
"(How much longer?)"
And he's old, and he's stupid, and he's hungry, and he's sore
And he's blind, and he's lame, and he's dirty, and he's poor
Give me more, give me more, give me more, give me more, give me more
"(How much longer?)"
There's a devil crawlin' along your floor
