"Lady Evil" as written by and Terence Butler Ronnie James Dio....
There's a place just south of Witches' Valley
Where they say the wind won't blow
And they only speak in whispers of her name

There's a lady they say who feeds the darkness
It eats right from her hand
With a crying shout she'll search you out
And freeze you where you stand

Lady evil, evil
She's a magical, mystical woman
Lady evil, evil in my mind
She's queen of the night
All right

In a place just south of Witches' Valley
Where they say the rain won't fall
Thunder cracks the sky, it makes you bleed, yeah
There's a lady they say who needs the darkness
She can't face the light
With an awful shout, she'll find you out
And have you for the night

Lady Evil, evil
She's a magical, mystical woman
Lady Evil, evil on my mind
She's queen of the night

So if you ever get to Witches' Valley
Don't dream or close your eyes
And never trust your shadow in the dark
'Cause there's a lady I know who takes your vision
And it turns all around
The things you see are what to be, lost and never found

Lady evil, evil
She's a magical, mystical woman
Lady evil, evil on my mind
She's queen of the night
Gonna do it right ?
She's the queen of sin
Look out, she'll pull you in
Lady wonder

    General CommentThis song's sweet, Dio is the king of keeping similar lyrics and structure in a song's verses with subtle alterations that keep them interesting. It's hard to explain but it's a really cool effect.

    General CommentI remember listening repeatedly while on my vacation in Mexico and the lyrical theme kind of gave the idea that it could about the dangers of buying sex while in an underdeveloped country, but that's just me.

    General CommentI think this song is a warning from a male perspective about sexual immorality in our culture. Many people think Black Sabbath is a satanic band but if you really examine their lyrics you'll find that they're mostly warnings against satanic evil.

    My InterpretationI think some of it is actually about Wendy Dio, his wife now widow, but I have heard conflicting opinions on that.
