And ‘though you didn’t know it,

whilst young and naive,

you danced with the devil,

on that snowy winter’s eve.


You may ask how I know this,

as we danced ‘round the hall,

for whilst he lay sleeping,

‘twas I stole his soul.


As it all becomes clearer,

‘twas I that was naive,

as you danced with the devil,

on that cold February’s eve.
