C.O.D.

Album: For Those About To Rock (1981)
  • Call of a dog, cry of a bitch
    Cream of a dream is the cause of the itch
    Call of the doctor, cash on demand
    If you get enough rope, might even hang

    [Chorus]
    C.O.D. - care of the devil
    C.O.D. - the devil in me
    C.O.D. - care of the devil
    Care of the devil in me

    The curse of love is the cause of the pain
    The crime of the day is when you do it again
    Call of the doctor, cash on demand
    If you give them a finger, they'll take off your hand

    [Chorus]

    (Down to the devil with me)

    Call of the dove, cry of a bitch
    The sign of the sinner, the size of his itch

    [Chorus]

    I'm paying, paying, I'm paying C.O.D.
    Care of the devil, care of the devil in me
    It's the curse of love Writer/s: ANGUS MCKINNON YOUNG, BRIAN JOHNSON, MALCOLM MITCHELL YOUNG
