Mephistopheles Smith: 11 song lyrics

Why should I even try
To leave the light and die
It's so warm in your embrace
I like it when I'm in your face
Ain't that to cry for
Ain't that to die for

When someone hits the spot
Then they are not forgot
Especially when someone
Shines brighter than the morning sun
Ain't that to cry for
Ain't that to die for

Some people they say that they don't want to come out
Some people they say that's what they're all about
Now the quick of us pick Icarus as a stinker of a pilot
But anyone that near the sun
Ain't no shrinking violet
Ain't that to die for

Ain't that to die for
Ain't that to cry for
Ain't that to die for

So let that love light blaze
Engage the gaze of praise
If you don't have a voice
Then baby you don't have no choice
Ain't that to cry for
Ain't that to die for

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

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

For many days and many nights I've loved the thought of you
Through many years too many tears you know I've 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
And you bring out the angel in me

I called it fun like hit and run a game of peek a boo
I'd climb inside my Mister Hyde and come and 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

Yes you do
Yes you know it's true
Oooh oooh

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!

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.

Don't call me I've got your number
but you won't see me 'til you slumber
think of us a blackbird and a dove
Oh let me be your incubus of love

If madame is feeling cautious
drift into the arms of Morpheus
and link us like the hand is to the glove
Oh let me be your Incubus of love

I'm going to come for you like a thief in the night time
(He's going to creep up to your side)
I'm going to bring relief to you at the right time
(there's no place that you can hide)
Oh let me be the one you're thinking of
Oh let me be your incubus of love

I'll be yours until Aurora
lights the morning with her aura
that rosy fingered nimbus from above
oh let me be your incubus of love

(He's going to come for you like a thief in the night time)
I'm going to creep up to your side
(He's going to bring relief to you at the right time)
there's no place that you can hide
oh let me be the one you're thinking of
oh let me be your Incubus of love
oh let me be your Incubus of love

When the load gets too heavy
And you can't take the heat
When your breath gets unsteady
And you're dead on your feet
It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you
Better look to the future
Better face the dark ships
Better shoot for what suits you
When you cash in your chips
It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you
And when you sum up the time
You've spent on presenting your reason or rhyme
Forever inventing
New dreams to come true
New things to do or not to do
It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you

It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you

No one here to convert you
No one here to pretend
But the world might desert you
And you just might need a friend
It's up to you
Which cup you brew
Then when you add up the days
You've wasted in waiting around in a haze
And never creating the captain and crew

Of the good ship, guess who?
Guess you do
It's up to you
Which cup you brew

It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you

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

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!

I'm a sucker for a heartbeat

If ever I wanted to know
The word that occurred on the street
I'd just listen to the heartbeat
To the rhythm of the heartbeat

If ever I wanted to go
and trick a victory out of defeat
I'd just listen to the heartbeat
To the rhythm of the heartbeat

Then if someone that you don't know
Should give you the big hello
Well you'll never get shaken
No you'll never get taken if you listen to the heartbeat
To the rhythm of the heartbeat
So whatever you want to do
You'd do it better if you did it as you
No don't follow your nose where the sun never goes
Instead of listening to the heart beat
To the rhythm of the heartbeat

Oh listen to my heartbeat
Oh woah woah woah take a lesson from my heartbeat
Oh no no no there's no messing with my heartbeat
Oh woah woah woah what a blessing is a heartbeat

When it gets sentimental and slow
don't fight it you might miss a treat
unless you're listening to the heart beat
the heady rhythm of the heartbeat
and then when the tempo says go
and you're yearning to turn indiscreet
Just keep listening to the heartbeat
the steady rhythm of the heartbeat

Then if somebody turns your head
And edges you onto the bed
Just forget you're refined
stop improving your mind and start listening to the heartbeat
to the rhythm of the heartbeat
No no you don't need a PhD
It's maybe easier than ABC
You don't have to be smart
You just open your heart
And keep on listening to the heartbeat
The rhythm driven by the heartbeat

Oh listen to my heartbeat
Oh woah woah woah take a lesson from my heartbeat
Oh no no there's no messing with my heartbeat
Oh woah woah woah what a blessing is a heartbeat

When you're hot and got that erotic feeling

the dance of love and it's divine

the name of the dance is the dance of love

the dance of love and it's divine

Oh everybody here suffers from their sanity
thinking too much has its own built in inanity
stop egging the disease on by begging for a reason from above
just do the dance of love
and it's divine
the dance of love and it's divine
