Does this sound like your religion?

"I took myself down to the Tally Ho Tavern,

To buy me a bottle of beer.

And I sat me down by a tender young maiden,

Who's eyes were as dark as her hair.

And as I was searching from bottle to bottle,

For something un-foolish to say.

That silver tongued devil just slipped from the shadows,

And smilingly stole her away.

I said: "Hey, little girl, don't you know he's the devil.

"He's everything that I ain't.

"Hiding intentions of evil,

"Under the smile of a saint.

"All he's good for is getting in trouble,

"And shiftin' his share of the blame.

"And some people swear he's my double:

"And some even say we're the same.

"But the silver-tongued devil's got nothing to lose,

"I'll only live 'til I die.

"We take our own chances and pay our own dues,

"The silver tongued devil and I."

Like all the fair maidens who've laid down beside him,

She knew in her heart that he'd lied.

Nothin' that I could have said could have saved her,

No matter how hard that she tried.

'Cos she
