"Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" as written by and Duke/kurtz Ellington....
Is there anyone around who cannot see
It's the well-known runaround you're giving me?
I suppose you'll tell me I'm all wrong.
It's a bitter pill to take,
Coming from you,
Though I've made a big mistake,
What can I do?
I don't know what makes me string along.

[Chorus]
I don't want you,
But I hate to lose you,
You've got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea.
I forgive you,
Cause I can't forget you,
You've got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea.

I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come knocking at my door
Fate seems to give my heart a twist,
And I come running back for more.

I should hate you,
But I guess I love you,
You've got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea.
