Devil's Advocate
(Written by Ray Harris ©2012 SOCAN)

I'll ask the questions nobody else will,
I'll argue the point until you're fit to kill,
Nobody ever wants to taste that bitter pill - but I will,
What I see is what you get,
I'm the devil's advocate.

I'll say the morning sky is black when it's blue,
I'll express opinions and then I'll turn the screws,
I take perverted pleasure in doing what I do - Oh yes I do,
What I see is what you get,
I'm the devil's advocate.
BRIDGE: Speak of the devil and he shall appear,

He only exists in the sum of all your fears,

Somebody always has, to take the poison view,

This time I guess it's me, next time it might be you....





Show me a wound and I'll rub in the salt,

I'll call you some names you ain't never heard called,

I'll shift the blame even though it's all my fault - please pass the salt,

What I see is what you get,

I'm the devil's advocate.

solo (like a verse)

Repeat BRIDGE



This conversation's over, you be the judge,

Call this one a stalemate, I don't hold a grudge,

Tongue in cheek, all in fun, wink and a nudge - who's buyin' lunch?

What I see is what you get,

I'm the devil's advocate.

What I see is what you get,

I'm the devil's advocate.
