  • Better the devil you know
    Better the devil you know (whoa oh oh)
    Better the devil you know
    Better the devil you know
    (Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

    Say you won't leave me no more
    I'll take you back again
    No more excuses, no no
    'Cause I've heard them all before
    A hundred times or more

    I'll forgive and forget
    If you say you'll never go
    'Cause it's true what they say
    It's better the devil you know
    (Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

    Our love wasn't perfect I know
    I think I know the score
    If you say you love me, oh boy
    I can't ask for more
    I'll come if you should call

    I'll forgive and forget
    If you say you'll never go
    'Cause it's true what they say
    It's better the devil you know

    I'll be here every day
    Waiting for your love to show
    Yes, it's true what they say
    It's better the devil you know
    (Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

    I'll take you back
    I'll take you back again
    I'll take you back
    I'll take you back again

    Say you won't leave me no more
    I'll take you back again
    No more excuses, no no
    'Cause I've heard them all before
    A hundred times or more

    I'll forgive and forget
    If you say you'll never go
    'Cause it's true what they say
    It's better the devil you know

    I'll be here every day
    Waiting for your love to show
    Yes, it's true what they say
    It's better the devil you know

    I'll forgive and forget
    If you say you'll never go
    'Cause it's true what they sayWriter/s: Mike Stock, Matt Aitken, Peter Waterman

  • Norma from Leeds, United KingdomIs the devil you know better than the one you don't? This worries me because young people might be drawn into devil worship, eating chickens' heads, playing cards and all sorts. A scary song with a hideous and frightening message.
  • Sarah from Stockton On Tees, --I know the whole drama behind the Kylie-splitting-up-with-Jason story! They [Kylie and Hutchens] were takin a big risk! It makes me wonder how Jason felt, after bein reunited wit Kylie, 4 her itv show!
  • Eric from Lakeland, FlThere is an very interesting analysis of Kylie Minogue's "Better the Devil You Know" in a lecture by Nick Cave (of the Bad Seeds) released under the name of The Secret Life of the Love Song. The lecture is fascinating for many other reasons as well.
