lyrics

I was walking home one day and what did I see but a brand new jacket just hanging from a tree. So I plucked it down and I pulled it on and the birds in the tree started singing this song

They said "That's the Devil's jacket, It's the Devil's jacket. Be careful what you wish for when you wear that coat because in return he's gonna steal your soul."

Now when the gals look at me they fall at my feet and when I'm walking by the stalls they give me something to eat. They say the best things in life are always for free, now everything's the best when it's for me.

Because I got the Devil's jacket, got the Devil's jacket. Be careful what you wish for when you wear that coat because in return he's gonna steal your soul.

I thought I'd scored, thought I had it all but never have I felt so poor. Now I can't feel no pleasure 'cause I can't feel no pain, I just hear the Devil laugh as he's calling my name.

He says "You got the Devil's jacket, got the Devil's jacket. Be careful what you wish for when you wear my coat because in return I'm gonna steal your soul."

So if you're walking one day and what do you see but a brand new jacket just hanging from a tree take a tip from me and walk on by because that's the Devil's jacket and it ain't no lie.

"It's the Devil's jacket, It's the Devil's jacket. Be careful what you wish for when you wear that coat because in return he's gonna steal your soul."
