"Beats the Devil" as written by Walter Egan and James....
By Chris James and Walter Egan

Damned if I will said Adam to Eve
What made you mess with that tree
Forbidden fruit from some snake in the grass
Just ain't my cup of tea
Then Eve turned to Adam and she said with a smile
I'm gonna make you believe
There will be tears in Paradise
And they'll be all about Eve

Damned if you do and damned if you don't
It's the original sin
How come the boy keeps chasing the girl
Until she catches him
Beats the devil out of me
Beats the devil out of me

What light from yonder window breaks said Romeo to Julliet
This family feud ain't our mistake and I'll love you truly yet
Two crazy kids back in old Italy they had to alter their plans
So Romi followed Julliet all the way to the promised land

Chorus

Now when it comes down to you and me we come from a long line of lovers
Who managed to make some history right there in between the covers
If you can't always be my Queen and I ain't always a King
Keep in mind this is not our fault it's a chromosomal thing

Chorus
