Lyrics:

There’s a devil in my dining room,
And he’s sippin' on a glass of whisky,
A devil in my dining room
And I don't think he’ll ever leave me.

Well there’s hoof prints on the floor,
Looks like he’s back for more.
Cause he’s come around once or twice
With his snake-oil sage advice.
But this time he’s offering
A new flavor of poison,
Yeah he’s crowned himself the king
Of my neurosis.

There’s a devil in my dining room,
And he’s sippin' on a glass of whiskey.
There’s a devil in my dining room,
And I don’t think he’ll ever leave me.
There's a devil in my dining room,
And he's smokin' like a goddamn chimney.
There's a devil in my dining room,
And I know that he'll never leave me.

Well he whispers in my ears
And he feeds to me my fears:
“They’re gonna lay it all to waste,
Defile, befoul, debase.”

So I cut out his forked tongue,
But it grew back twice as long.
Now he’s laughing in my face
With his red eyes ablaze.

There's a devil in my dining room,
And he's smokin' like a goddamn chimney,
There’s a devil in my dining room,
And I don’t think he’ll ever leave me.
There’s a devil in my dining room,
And he’s singin' hallelujah, glory hallelujah.
There's a devil in my dining room,
And I know that he'll never leave me.
