Loverman - 2011 - Remaster - Lyrics

There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer?)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer?)

And it is bucking and braying and pawing at the floor
(How much longer?)
And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls, oh yeah
(How much longer?)

And there's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer?)
He's weak with evil and broken by the world
(How much longer?)

And he's shouting your name and he's asking for more
(How much longer?)
Give him more, give him more
There's a devil waiting outside your door, oh yeah
(How much longer?)

Loverman, since the world began
Forever, Amen, yeah till end of time
Take off that dress, I'm coming down
I'm your loverman 'cause I am what I am what I am what I am

L is for love, baby
O is for only you that I do
And V is for loving virtually all that you are
E is for loving almost everything you do

R is for rape me and M is for murder me
And A is for answering all of my prayers
N is for knowing your loverman's going to
Be the answer to all of yours, yeah

Loverman, till the bitter end
While empires burn down forever and ever and ever and ever
Loverman, so help me, baby
So help me 'cause I am what I am what I am what I am what I am
I'll be your loverman

There's a devil crawling along your floor
(How much longer?)
There's a devil crawling along your floor
(How much longer?)

With a trembling heart, he's coming through your door

(How much longer?)
With his straining sex in his jumping paw, oh yeah
(How much longer?)

There's a devil crawling along your floor
(How much longer?)
And he's old and he's stupid and he's hungry and he's sore
And he's lame and he's blind and he's dirty and he's poor
(How much longer?)

Give him more, give him more, give him more, give him more
Give him more, give him more, give him more, give him more
(How much longer?)
There's a devil crawling along your floor, oh yeah
(How much longer?)

Loverman now, now here I stand
Forever Amen 'cause I am what I am what I am what I am
Forgive me, baby, my hands are down
And I got no choice no, I got no choice at all

I'll say it again, L is for love
And O is for O yes I do
V is for virtue so I ain't gonna hurt you
E is for even if you want me to

R is for render unto me, baby
And M is for that which is mine
And A is for any old how, darling
And N is for any old time

I'll be your loverman, I got a master plan
To take off your dress and be your man
Yeah, seize the throne, seize the mantle
Seize the crown 'cause I am what I am what I am what I am what I am
Your loverman

There's a devil lying by your side
(How much longer?)
You might think he's asleep but look at his eyes
(How much longer?)

He wants you, baby to be his bride
(How much longer?)
There's a devil lying by your side, oh yeah
(How much longer?)
