I told Mary about us, I told her about our great sin
Mary cried and forgave me, then Mary took me back again
Said if I wanted my freedom, I could be free ever more
But I don't want to be, and I don't want to see Mary cry anymore.
Oh, Devil woman, Devil woman, let go of me!
Devil woman, let me be, and leave me alone, I wanna go home.
Mary is waiting and weeping down in our shack by the sea
Even after I've hurt her, Mary's still in love with me
Devil woman, it's over, trapped no more by your charm,
'cause I don't wanna stay, I wanna get away, woman let go of my arm!
Devil Woman, you're evil, like the dark coral reef,
like the winds that bring high tides, you bring sorrow and grief*
You made me ashamed to face Mary, barely had the strength to tell
Skies are not so black, Mary took me back, Mary has broken your spell.
Running along by the seashore, running as fast as I can
Even the seagulls are happy, glad I'm coming home again
Never again will I ever cause another tear to fall
Down the beach I see what belongs to me, the one I want most of all.
Oh, Devil woman, Devil woman, don't follow me!
Devil Woman, let me be, and leave me alone, I'm going back home.
