Sweet Little Devotchcka

Sweet Little Devotchcka

by Marian von Gogu

Verse 1
Her eyes are like stained glass
When I look into them
I see the divine
Her beauty is unsurpassed
How I wish there was a way to make her mine

Chorus 1
So, sweet little devotchcka
Sit there and I’ll play for you this song
I know I’m not your Mr. Right
So I guess I’ll have to be your Mr. Wrong

Verse 2
She grins like Cheshire Cat
So mesmerizing when she smiles at me
I fly to her just like a bat
In hopes of wrapping my wings ’round her lovingly
But she disappears just like a ghost
And re-appears when and where she wants
The devotchcka I long for the most

‘Tis my mind and my heart and my soul she haunts.
‘Tis my mind and my heart and my soul she taunts

Chorus 1
Chorus 2

So, sweet little devotchcka
Sit there and I’ll play for you this tune
I’m not your knight in shining armor
Just an undead jester, trying to make you swoon

Bridge

So take my sanity
Take my sentimentality
I’ve no use for either one anyway
I’d rather watch you dance
Than have a sordid romance
We can drink all night and sing all day

Verse 3
Her eyes are like stained glass
When I look into them
I see the divine

Her beauty is unsurpassed
I wish there was a way to make her mine
If any other man doth try to court you
I shall give him slow and painful death
I know that may be a bit disturbing
But this is as romantic as I get!

Chorus 1
Chorus 2
Chorus 3

Oh sweet little devotchcka
I shall play for you this melody
I’m not the man of your dreams
Just a smitten nightmarish Gypsy
