Richard O'Brien - Mephistopheles Smith, Cloven Hooves Tour 2007: 6 song lyrics        3,094 views

Who's that angel born in hell
That everybody knows so well
Who makes you stammer with their infernal glamour
Who's got a name that's hard to spell
Who affects the way you feel
The patron saint of sex appeal
Who makes you clamor for the eternal slammer
Who has the legs to make you squeal
Who owns the soul of a Rock 'n' Roll riff?
Why it's very very possibly Mephistopheles Smith

Who comes in the night and gets you dreaming steaming screaming
Who loves to scare you stiff
(stiff stiff stiff stiff)
Demon of the night
Demon of delight
Must be Mephistopheles Smith

Who's everybody's fantasy
Who's everybody's man to see
Who's that slick looker, the philosophic hooker
Who always gives a damn for free
Who taught them sport in paradise
Who was the author of our vice
Who stopped us slinking and went and got us thinking
Who's sort of naughty, sort of nice
Who is the fact of an actual myth
Why it's very very possibly Mephistopheles Smith

Who comes in the night and gets you dreaming steaming screaming
Who loves to scare you stiff
(stiff stiff stiff stiff)
Demon of the night
Demon of delight
Must be Mephistopheles Smith

Demon of the night
Demon of delight
Must be Mephistopheles Smith

Demon of the night
Demon of delight
Must be Mephistopheles Smith

Well I wanna say hello to the human race.
I wanna stop awhile and put a smile on your face.
If I like what I see, then we'll head back to your place
And I'll be disgracefully yours.

I don't care about your color or your race or creed.
We'll have fun if you're a mongrel or you're pedigreed.
I only wanna thrill you and fulfill your need,
But I'll be disgracefully yours.

I'm inclined to spit and bite a bit and scratch you.
(But he finds that most don't mind behind locked doors)
So I suggest you get undressed and let me catch you.
I'll be distastefully, disgracefully all yours.

You may see yourself above me on some other plane,
But I know somehow you're thinking of me now and again.
So sell yourself to Hell and we'll let Heaven reign,
And I'll be disgracefully yours.

(He's inclined to spit and bite a bit and scratch you)
But I find that most don't mind behind locked doors.
(He suggests you get undressed and let him catch you)
I'll be distastefully, disgracefully all yours.

You may see yourself above me on some other plane,
But I know somehow you're thinking of me now and again.
So sell yourself to Hell and we'll let Heaven reign,
And I'll be disgracefully yours.

I'll be disgracefully...
Oh so distastefully...
I'll be disgracefully yours.

Let's put our hands together and let's praise ourselves
Praise ourselves
Just put your hands together and let's praise ourselves
Praise ourselves, oh yeah
Just put your hands on your head, put your hands on your knees
Put your hands on your titties and give a little squeeze
Put your hands together and praise yourself
Praise ourselves.

Praise ourselves
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Praise ourselves
Let the light shine down!
Praise ourselves
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Praise yourself!

If I should call you an angel, it's because I think you're divine
But you must make sure that you don't change at all.
Or I just might change my mind.
I've loved many a woman and left many a man
Between the Devil and the deep blue sea
But you've got something I don't understand
And it brings out the angel in me

(Oh, yes it is)
(Yes you know it's true)
(You know it's true)

For many nights and many days I've loved the thought of you
(thought of you)
Through many years, too many tears, you know I've sought for you.
(sought for you)
You gave this iron fist a velvet glove
And when we kissed, that's when I fell in love
Maybe I'm a devil, but this time I'm on the level
Yes you bring out the angel in me

(Oh, yes it is)
(Yes you know it's true)
(You know it's true)

I called it fun, like hit and run, a game of peek-a-boo.
(peek-a-boo)
I'd climb inside my Mr. Hyde and come and seek for you
(seek for you)
I've been insane with pain and jealousy
But now I'll change all that, just wait and see
Maybe I'm a demon, and maybe I'm just dreaming
But you bring out the angel in me

You bring out the angel in me

When you're hot and got that erotic feeling
There's only one dance when it's push comes to shove
It don't take long to get it when you got to get the healing
The name of the dance is the dance of love
(dance of love)
It's divine
Dance of love
It's divine

When you're hot to trot out an exotic notion
Exactly like the one I know you're thinking of
It don't take long to get it when you got to get the motion
The name of the dance is the dance of love
(dance of love)
It's divine
The dance of love
It's divine

There's no need to know me
Just come to me, show me
That I'm the light
(the light)
You're the moth
(the moth)
Together we can do the dance of love
Come to me slowly
With no sanctimony, just love
We'll do the dance of love
Ooh, it's divine
The dance of love
It's divine

When you're cool to fool with a hypnotic ache you
Relate to like the piano does to Rachmaninov
It don't take long to get it when you got it let it take you
The name of the dance is the dance of love
(dance of love)
Ooh, it's divine
The dance of love
It's divine

Everybody here
Suffers from their sanity
Thinking too much
Has it's own built in inanity
Stop egging the disease on by
Begging for a reason from above
We do the dance of love
Ooh, it's divine
The dance of love
It's divine

When you're hot and got that erotic feeling
There's only one dance when it's push comes to shove
It don't take long to get it when you got to get the healing
The name of the dance is the dance of love
(dance of love)
Ooh, it's divine
The dance of love
It's divine
The dance of love
It's divine
The dance of love
It's divine!

Some people do it for compassion
Some people do it for the fashion
Some people do it to be funny
Some people do it for the money
Some people do it for enslavement
Some people do it on the pavement
But...

We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it
No matter how the wind is blowing

We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it
We just gotta keep going

Some people do it for each other
Some people do it for their lover
Some people do it for improvement
Some people do it for the movement
Some people do it for enjoyment
Some people do it for employment
But...

We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it
No matter how the wind is blowing

We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it
We just gotta keep going

Brighton, Brighton, you've got no pretension
You're where the heart is, you're OK
Brighton, Brighton, you've got no pretension
You're the acceptable face
Of the human race
You're Brighton, Brighton, U.K.

We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it
No matter how the wind is blowing

We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it anyhow, anyhow
We're going to do it
We just gotta keep going
We just gotta keep going
We just gotta keep going

We just gotta keep going!
