I have danced with the devil,
under the pale moonlight,
We played a game of wits,
it was a hell of a fight.....

Death came and knocked on my door,
he told me to take his cold dead hand,
He had come for me two times before,
but I did not give into his demand.

I told him I was a betting man,
and to me life was like a game of craps,
That day I would not follow his plan,
I told him another day perhaps!

I laughed at him in the face,
and told him he may continue to pursue,
but then was not the time or place,
for our special rendezvous.

His face filled with such anger,
then dissappeared into the night,
Yes I have danced with the devil,
under the pale moonlight!
