LOVERMAN - that's who I am



There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer?)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer?)
It is bucking and braying and pawing at the floor
(How much longer?)
And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls
(How much longer?)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer?)
He's weak with evil and broken by the world
(How much longer?)
He's shouting your name and he's asking for more
(How much longer?)
(give him more, give him more)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer?)

Loverman! Since the world began
Forever, Amen, Till end of time
Take off that dress
I'm coming down
I'm your loverman
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

L is for LOVE, baby
O is for ONLY you that I do
V is for loving VIRTUALLY all that you are
E is for loving almost EVERYTHING that you do
R is for RAPE me
M is for MURDER me
A is for ANSWERING all of my prayers
N is for KNOWING your loverman's going to
be the answer to all of yours

Loverman! Till the bitter end
While empires burn down
Forever and ever and ever and ever
Loverman! So help me, baby, So help me
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
I'll be your loverman...

There's a devil crawling along your floor
(how much longer?)
There's a devil crawling along your floor
(how much longer?)
With a trembling heart, he's coming through your door
(how much longer?)
With his straining sex in his jumping paw
(how much longer?)
There's a devil crawling along your floor
(how much longer?)
And he's old and he's stupid and
he's hungry and he's sore
And he's lame and he's blind
and he's dirty and he's poor
Give him more, give him more, give him more...
Give him more, give him more, give him more...
There's a devil crawling along your floor
(how much longer?)

Loverman! Here I stand
Forever, Amen
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
Forgive me, baby
My hands are bound
And I got no choice
No, I got no choice at all

I'll say it again
L is for LOVE, baby
O is for O yes I do
V is for VIRTUE, so I ain't gonna hurt you
E is for EVEN if you want me to
R is for RENDER unto me, baby
M is for that which is MINE
A is for ANY old how, darling
N is for ANY old time

I'm your loverman!
I got a masterplan to take off your dress
And be your man
Seize the throne, Seize the mantle, Seize the crown
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
I'm your loverman!

There's a devil lying by your side
(how much longer?)
You might think he's asleep
but look at his eyes
(how much longer?)
He wants you, baby, to be his bride
(how much longer?)
There's a devil lying by your side
(how much longer?)

Loverman! Loverman!
