Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
|: Light a candle, everything's all right. :|

Oh, when I was a baby child,
(Shut de do, keep out de debbil)
Good and bad, wasjust a game,
(Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night)
But many years and many trials
(Shut de do, keep out de debbil)
They proved to me that they're not the same.
(Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night)

Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
|: Light a candle, everything's all right. :|

2. Oh, Satan is an evil charmer,
(Shut de do, keep out de debbil)
He's hungry for a soul to hurt,
(Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night)
And without your holy armor,
(Shut de do, keep out de debbil)
He will eat you for dessert.
(Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night)

Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
|: Light a candle, everything's all right. :|

Say der, hey, hey, hey
Shut de do
Hey, hey, hey
Shut de do
Hey, hey, hey
You better shut it.
Say a prayer he won't be back no more.

3. My mama used to sing this song,
(Shut de do, keep out de debbil)
My papa used to sing it too,
(Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night)
Jesus called and took them home,
(Shut de do, keep out de debbil)
And so I sing this song for you.
(Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night)

Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
|: Light a candle, everything's all right. :|

(You better)
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
(You gotta)
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
|: Light a candle, everything's all right.
Light a candle, everything's all right. :|
