                         harm


On Easy St last night the devil offered me a deal
He said, "Go on and take what you'd like,

    E             B       Db
and later tell me how you feel"

So I looked up all around
on this uneasy street
I'd have been happy if I had found
something simple to eat

    Ab         Db         Eb
But just as he asked me

                Ab
?Maureen walked past?
         Ab        Db          F#
I said, "Mr Devil, she is so refined."

            B(no3)+#7
He said, "I tricked you little brother.
  F#
I tricked you little brother
      Eb                      Ab    Db     F#
"That tricky little mother is mine."

  Ab     Eb     Eb/Db     Eb
I wish I was as good as I look

  Ab     F#       Db
I wish I was that good

  Db     F#     Db        F#
I wish I was as good as I look

     B       F#      Db
Wish I could be that good


It was too late for me
I'd just set eyes on my heart's ideal
I was in ecstacy
I was up and ready to steal
So I looked up all around
on this uneasy street
I kept on looking until I found
the prints of my beloved's feet
I kept up the chase
'til I looked right in her face
I said, "My darling you have angel's eyes"

She said to this little brother
You knew little brother--this is just his still mother's disguise"

Ab F# Db F#

  Bb     F#     F#/Eb     F#     Bb     Ab       Eb
I wish I was as good as I look I wish I was that good

  Eb     Ab     Eb        Ab        Db      Ab      Eb
I wish I was as good as I look wish I could be that good

[instr break based on intro pattern]

I just could not believe
someone so beautiful could not be pure
I prayed for some reprieve
I had to save her from the Devil's lure
But I guess the Devil was bound to win
on this uneasy street
I had to know what was beneath her skin
I had to face up to the Devil's heat
But I didn't have to ask
she just took off her mask
In a second it was clear to see
He said, "I tricked you little brother
"This tricky little mother...is me."
