Perry Como - "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" lyrics

I don't want you,
But I hate to lose you,
You got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!

I forgive you,
'Cause I can't forget you,
You got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!

I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come a knockin' at my door
Fate seems to give my heart a twist
And I keep runnin' back for more!

I should hate you,
But I guess I love you,
You got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!
< instrumental bridge >

You got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!

< instrumental bridge >

Hmm, you got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!

I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come a knockin' at my door
Fate seems to give my heart a twist
And I keep runnin' back for more!

Hmm, I should hate you,
But I guess I love you,
You got me in between
The devil and the deep blue sea!

You got me in between
The devil . . . and the deep blue sea! . . . and the deep blue sea!
