THE DEVIL'S MARBLES

I gathered my marbles
and got set for a game
I threw my lot
I played the devil's game

He shot out all but one
all I had was lost
and I was left with nothing
but to count the cost

He shouted victory
In the end it was I
who had tricked the beast
Everything lost in the try

But he fumes, perplexed
and stares in wonder
I gave my golden marble
to you
and tore his plans assunder
