Lyrics:
"The devil smiles and laughs at me,
Says you'll be back, just wait and see,
You know I've heard this all before,

And I say,
You can keep your high life in the hills,
Your cocaine lies and whiskey thrills,
I don't need you anymore,

This is not for me, no,
This is not for me, no,
This life is not for me, no,
This is not for me, no,
Oh oh oh"
