"Devil Woman" as written by and Terry/hodgson Britten....
I've had nothing but bad luck
Since the day I saw the cat at my door
So I came into you sweet lady
Answering your mystical call
Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future,the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
And I knew it was a spell she cast

She's just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She's gonna get you
She's just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She's gonna get you from behind

Give me the ring on your finger
Let me see the lines on your hand
I can see me a tall dark stranger
Giving you what you hadn't planned
I drank the potion she offered me
I found myself on the floor
Then I looked into those big green eyes
And I wondered what I'd come there for

She's just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She's gonna get you
She's just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She's gonna get you from behind

If you're out on a moonlit night
Be careful of them neighborhood strays
Of a lady with long black hair
Tryin' to win you with nymphetamine ways
Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future,the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
You'd better get out of there fast

She's just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She's gonna get you
She's just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She's gonna get you

    General CommentThis song is so surreal! Who would've thought that Cradle would cover a song by Cliff Richard! I love the way they loop his voice into the chorus. Really wierd!
    Anyway, this cover is soooo amazing. My parents are Cliff Richard fans, and so I couldn't resist blasting this at them!!! They were not amused!!!

    This song is pretty self explanitory, so there is no need for an interperatation!!! Beauty, Satanism, Brilliant!

    General CommentIt's not Satanism, you weird-o! Hahahaha. All those old songs were never about real Satanism or witchcraft like the songs of today are and when they do mention the devil or witches or whatever, it means they were mystical and dark. This song leads me to imagine that the "devil woman" is a gypsy fortune-teller lady with a black cat as a pet. She isn't Satan or anything like that. She's just some strange spooky lady he meets and who puts a spell on him to seduce him. I love this song. My boyfriend and I downloaded it on a random Cradle of Filth sprea and I liked it. It's really awesome. I've never heard the original.

    General CommentDevilslittle.... have you ever actually heard a Cliff Richard song. They are riddled with referances to the devil. He is a devaut christian who loves rock & roll.
    Many of his songs are about Lucifer, Why Should The Devil Have all The Good Music, and his version of The Lords Prayer ( The Millenium Prayer )
    Of course this song is about a Satanist. It may be about a Gypsey fortune teller, but he sees those people as satanic. And as you said, you've never heard the original.

    General CommentI love this song,especially the verses!Ι agree,it's about a gypsy fortune-teller who seduces him using witchcraft.He is her victim,he cannot resist her evil "mystical call" and her charm.I have to admit,though,that I haven't heard the original yet.
