One, two, one, two, three...

There's a new guy in town, he's been dragging around
He's the figure of youth
And his eyes are so blue and they're looking at you
So tell me the truth

Well, well, he's got stories to tell
He bites off more than he chews
Well, well, is he ringing your bell?
My heart is breaking in two

And his skin is so fair and it shines like his hair
As he stands so aloof
With an indolent air and an insolent stare
That just shutters the truth

Well, well, is he ringing your bell?
My heart is breaking in two
Well, well, he'll be rotting in hell
For playing the devil with you

Is it already too late?
No point shutting the gate
Have you already swallowed the bait?
And you're gone

As he knocks you down cold, as you lose all control
To this slip of a youth
I see fire in his eyes, I see ice in his smile
And I'm learning the truth

Well, well, he's got stories to tell
Of love that is long overdue
Well, well, who is under his spell
Is paying the devil his due
