Traveling Wilburys — The Devil's Been Busy lyrics

While you're strolling down the fairway
Showing no remorse
Glowing from the poisons
They've sprayed on your golf course
While you're busy sinking birdies
And keeping your scorecard
The devil's been busy in your back yard.

Steaming down the highway
With your trips of toxic waste
Where you gonna hide it
Maybe outer space?
You don't know what you're doing
Or what you have to guard
The devil's been busy in your back yard.

Sometimes you think you're crazy
But you know you're only mad
Sometimes you're better off not knowing
How much you've been had.

You see your second cousin
Wasted in a fight
You say he had it coming
You couldn't do it right
You're in a western movie, playing the little part
The devil's been busy in your back yard

The devil's been busy now
The devil's been busy now

Sometimes they say you're wicked
But you know that can't be bad
Sometimes you're better off not knowing
It'll only make you sad.

They're coming down Piccadilly
Tripping after dosh
Arresting Sticky Willy
Clubbering him with their cosh
They just might not have noticed, they've been beating him so hard

The devil's been busy in your back yard
Yeah the devil's been busy now
The devil's been busy in your back yard
Whoa, whoa, whoa busy now
The devil's been busy in your back yard.
Yeah the devil's been busy now
