Perry Como - Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea lyrics

I don't want you,
But I hate to lose you,
You got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!

I forgive you,
'Cause I can't forget you,
You got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!

I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come a knockin' at my door
Fate seems to give my heart a twist
And I keep runnin' back for more!

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

You got me in between


The devil and the deep blue sea!

instrumental bridge

Hmm, you got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!

I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come a knockin' at my door
Fate seems to give my heart a twist
And I keep runnin' back for more!

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

You got me in between
The devil . . . and the deep blue sea! . . . and the deep blue sea!
