Lyrics

The devil ain't lazy (No siree)
The devil ain't lazy (No siree)

He roams around with sticks and stones
Passing out his moans and groans
The devil ain't no lazy bones, he works 24 hours a day

The devil ain't lazy (No siree)
The devil ain't lazy (No siree)

Likes to see us fight and fuss
Makes us mean enough to cuss
Then he blames it all on us, he works 24 hours a day

He travles like a lightning streak and he strikes from town to town
Then he gets you when you're weak and tares your playhouse down

The devil ain't lazy (No siree)
The devil ain't lazy (No siree)

Tells us he won't hurt a fly, then he makes us steal and lie
Keeps us sinning untill we die, he works 24 hours a day

The devil ain't lazy (No siree)
The devil ain't lazy (No siree)

Get's his pitchfork out each night, gives the folks an awfull fright
I know he does it just for spite, he works 24 hours a day

The devil ain't lazy (No siree)
The devil ain't lazy (No siree)

Tells us how to find success, then now you wind up in distress, I'll tell ya why, the devil is an awfull mess
He works 24 hours a day

He like to see things scorch and burn, and don't make no excuse
If he catches you he'll turn you anyway but loose

Nah, The devil ain't lazy (No siree)
Hey! The devil ain't lazy (No siree)

So if you think you're strong and brave, smart enough to not behave
You got one foot in the grave, he works 24 hours a day
24 hours a day
Yes he does! He works 24 hours a day
He works 24 hours a day
