It could've been any boy
It could've been any girl
I'm glad it was me
I'm glad it was you
Met a girl from Austin, Dallas
Met a girl I won't soon forget her
Sat down to write her a letter
I wrote this song instead

These idle hands
They do the Devil's work
These idle hands
They do a whole lot worse
These idle hands
They do the Devil's work
These idle hands
They do a whole lot worse
A whole lot worse

I bet you got a boy
Back in Austin, baby
But I'm not askin'
But I'm not askin'
Oh
Oh

These idle hands
They do the Devil's work
These idle hands
They do a whole lot worse
These idle hands
They do the Devil's work
These idle hands
They do a whole lot worse
A whole lot worse

Met a girl from Austin, Dallas
Met a girl from Austin, Dallas
Met a girl I won't soon forget

It could've been any boy
It could've been any girl
I'm glad it was me
I'm glad it was you

These idle hands
They do the Devil's work
These idle hands
They do a whole lot worse
These idle hands
They do the Devil's work
These idle hands
They do a whole lot worse
