  • I got my feelers out
    Pleasure I can give you pain
    I'm the demon of misfortune
    Let me tell you that bad luck is my game
    Fires burning make you cold
    You can touch but you can't hold
    It's an even split
    Between zip and the number on your ticket
    Nothing to brag about dragging in the dirt
    I'm a nasty piece of work

    Down get down on your knees
    Running gonna bring you down
    I'm the demon of disorder
    You know I'm gonna drive you into the ground
    As you're stepping through the door
    My shadow crawls across your floor
    Your dream of love
    It's not enough it's gonna come to nothing
    You ain't seen nothing it's gonna get worse
    I'm nasty nasty

    It's an even split
    Between zip and the number on your ticket
    Your dream of love
    It's not enough it's gonna come to nothing
    Nothing to brag about dragging in the dirt
    You ain't seen nothing it's gonna get worse
    I'm a nasty piece of work Writer/s: IAN GILLAN, JON LORD, RITCHIE BLACKMORE, ROGER DAVID GLOVER
