Mama told me "boy you best behave"
Cause Santa keeps a list of all his faves
And if you don't shape up
You ain't getting squat
But the devil on my shoulders getting hot
Hotter than ever
Cool out of sight
If I'm gonna do wrong
I'm gonna do it right

So he took me for a ride in his Cadillac
Stolen from a kleptomaniac
At a horse race track
I said "Sir, its Christmas Eve I should be home in bed
Instead he said
"You merry gentlemen always bet on red"
The duke of deception
Malice and spite
If I'm gonna do wrong
I'm gonna do it right

When you're done
You're really done
Will you look back and say; "hey that was fun?"
When all he ever wanted was a b.b. gun
Santa Claus heaven become

When you're done
You're really done
Will you look back and say; "hey that was fun?"

So he took me for a ride in his big ol' sleigh
We flew around the world in just one day
And Johnny Mathis sang
I said "so what you got for me in that sled"
Instead he said "Boy you've been bettin' on a darker shade of red"

Hotter than ever
Cool out of sight
Duke of deception
Malice and spite
Johnny is singin'
In heaven tonight
If you gotta do wrong
You better do it right
