Lyrics

Sha-la-la

Evil Guy with your gouging horn
Were you this evil when you were born?
Sha-la-la

He's got no idea of love
He wants to soil the virgin's glove
Sha-la-la

He sniffs the beauty of the rose
Just like cocaine into his nose
Sha-la-la

He just wants power over you
And when he's had it, then he's through

Evil guy, if you were me,
What kind of person would I be?
Sha-la-la

Embedded deep in someone else
I never could forget myself
Sha-la-la
