The evil one...

The devil is a sly old fox
If I could catch him
I'd put him in a box
Lock the box and throw away the key
For all the tricks he's played on me

I'm glad that I'm a Christian...

That's the song that first comes to mind this evening as I think about today... I went out to the cleaners and got gas during lunch and I had the radio on. That's when Joe Diffie's song came on and I started singing along, until I realized what I was actually SAYING as I sang along. No, it's not just the bad words or something. It's the whole idea of the song. I quit and shut off the radio and tried my best to put a stop to what Satan was trying to do. Read the lyrics below. After all that Dave & I have done to try to change our habits about acquiring debt, these are the last words I need......

Diablo motors had a hell of a sale, downtown yesterday,
Word got around, no money down, take years and years to pay.
When I got there the lot was bare, but the salesman said hold on.
For a little cash, I gotta two-tone Nash out behind the barn.

If the Devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine.
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band and a twelve girl chorus line.
I'd raise some loot in a three piece suit, give 'em one dance for a dime,
If the Devil Danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine.

Well he said friend it ain't the end let's see what I can do.
If you own a home, I've got a loan, tailor made for you.
Then above the racket a voice in my jacket said, "I'll tote the note."
The devil made me do it, talked me in to it, and that was all she wrote.

If the Devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine.
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band and a twelve girl chorus line.
I'd raise some loot in a three piece suit, give 'em one dance for a dime,
If the Devil Danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine.

They say debt is a bottomless pit where the devil likes to play.
I'd sell my soul to get out of this hole, but there'd be hell to pay.
If the Devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine.
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band and a twelve girl chorus line.
I'd raise some loot in a three piece suit, give 'em one dance for a dime,
If the Devil Danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine.
