Songtekst

Jezebel
Jezebel

If ever the devil was born
Without a pair of horns
It was you, Jezebel, it was you

If ever the devil's plan
Was made to torment man
It was you, Jezebel, it was you

If ever a pair of eyes
Promised paradise
Deceiving me, grieving me, leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you

If ever the devil's plan
Was made to torment man
It was you, Jezebel, it was you

Would be better that I'd never known a lover such as you
Forsaking dreams and I, just for the silent call of your own

Jezebel

If ever a pair of eyes
Promised paradise
Deceiving me, grieving me, leaving me blue
Jezebel, Jezebel, Jezebel
