Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea
Ted Koehler (w), Harold Arlen (m)
Rhythmania, 1932
VERSE
Is there anyone around who can not see It's the well-known run-a-round you're giving me, I suppose you'll tell me I'm all wrong, It's a bitter pill to take, coming from you, Tho' I've made a big mistake, what can I do? I don't know what makes me string along.
CHORUS
I don't want you, but I'd hate to lose you, You've got me in between the devil and the deep blue sea, I forgive you 'cause I can't forget you, You've got me in between the devil and the deep blue sea, I ought to cross you off my list, But when you come knowcking at my door, Fate seems to give my heart a twist, And I come running back for more, I should hate you, but I guess I love you, You've got me in between the devil and the deep blue sea.
