Horse

i met the devil at your party last night
he seemed an upfront kind of guy
‘cept i couldn’t see his face properly
cos it was dark & i was rushing
i said this man you’ve just denied
feels cold out here, let’s go inside

he got the borrowed body from that body renting crowd
he got the three black cats who never touch the ground
standing in the doorway in a sheepskin coat
with the perfect chuckle, he turns to go
a line a day, wallpaper peeling
daddy long legs on the ceiling

i met the brother i haven’t seen for years
sometimes the dumbest people got the best ideas
sign a pair of cheques to a pair of flies
to drive a pair nails into my eyes
now i got four legs, that’s better than two
temptation’s taste, horses’ hooves
