Track Name: Ned Riseley, Ensemble - Opening (The Devil)
The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there
But Doctor Faustus dear, yes I am here

The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there
But Doctor Faustus dear, yes I am here

What do I care, there is no here or there
What am I?
I am Doctor Faustus
Doctor Faustus
Who knows everything, can do
everything
and you say it was through you,
but not at all

The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there
The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there

I know everything,can do everything and you say it was through you, but not at all

And if I had taken my time
I would have known how to make white electric light and daylight and nightlight
And what did I do?

I saw you
miserable devil
I saw you
and I was deceived
And I believed miserable devil, I thought I needed you
And you wanted my soul
What the hell did you want my soul for
How do I know that I have a soul to sell?
How do you know, Mister Devil?
Oh, Mister Devil
How can you tell?

The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there
I, I who know everything, I keep on having so much light, that light is not bright, and what after all is the use of light?

You can see just as well without it
You can go around just as well without it
You can get up and go to bed just as well without it

And I wanted to make it,
and the devil take it
You do not even want it
and I sold my soul to make it

And I wanted to make it,
and the devil take it
You do not even want it
and I sold my soul to make it

And I wanted to make it,
and the devil take it
You do not even want it
and I sold my soul to make it

The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there
Devil what the, Devil
Devil what the, Devil
Devil what the, Devil
Devil what the, Devil

And I
wanted to make it
And the
Devil take it
You
do not even want it and I sold my soul to make it

And I wanted to make it
And the devil take it
You do not even want it
And I sold my soul to make it
And I wanted to make it
And the devil take it
You do not even want it
and I sold my soul to make it

The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there
The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there
The devil what the devil what do I care if the devil is there
