I ain't gonna sell my soul to the devil,
Ain't gonna get down on her level,
Ain't gonna sell my soul to Lucifer,
Tell your girlfriend I ain't got no use for her,

Ahaaa, ooh

I ain't gonna sell my soul to the devil
I ain't gonna get down on her level
I ain't gonna sell my soul to Lucifer
Now tell your girlfriend I ain't got no use for her

Ahaaahaha ahaahaha,

I went and I sold my soul to Jesus
And nobody knows just what he means to us
I went and I got me some of that holy-ghost fire
Ain't nothing in this world that can take me higher

Ahaahaha ahaahaha ahaahaha haahahaahahaha

    General CommentI believe agameofhearts is right, it sounds more like "her" level


    There is something absolutely so sad about this song.
    Not in the first part but in the end lyrics
    "When I sold my soul to Jesus no body knows what he means to us,
    When I got me some of that holy-ghost fire
    Aint nothing in this world that can take me higher"

    I grew up in the same denomination and with the same beliefs as the Kings of Leon. Their church district is actually only about an hour away from where I live and back in the day we would attend the same church conferences.
    Our beliefs don't really approve of where the Kings of Leon are today, the whole secular music, sex drugs, rock and roll thing, and me being backslid myself there is something absolutely devastating about the last lines of the song. The fact that KoL WERE known drug addicts during their first two albums, and in this song saying "ain't nothing got me higher" (than that holy-ghost fire) it almost seems as if their is some latent regret for the decisions that have taken them this far. Although I'm out of church I will never be able to justify my doings, I will always feel that conviction for my sin, and knowing that I'm not where I need to be with God. It kinda seems as if they feel the same way.

    I'm really not trying to start a HUGE knock down drag our debate about religion, just giving you my interpretation of the song. Sorry if I offend anybody.

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure it's "I went and I sold my soul to Jesus,
    and no body knows just what he means to us,"

    and not "When I sold my soul to Jesus no body knows what he means to us,"

    Lyric CorrectionI could be wrong, because I'm just going by what I've heard from live shows, but... Isn't it;

    "I ain't gonna get down on HER level?"

    That'd make more sense to me if it is, it links in with

    "Tell your girlfriend I aint got no use for her"


    Anyway, I love this track, I can't wait for the new album!
