Loverman - deutsche Übersetzung

Loverman

There’s a devil waiting outside your door
There’s a devil waiting outside your door
It is bucking and braying and pawing at the floor
And he’s howling with pain and crawling up the walls
There’s a devil waiting outside your door
He’s weak with evil and broken by the world
He’s shouting your name and he’s asking for more
There’s a devil waiting outside your door

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

Loverman! Till the bitter end
While empires burn down
Forever and ever and ever and ever
Amen
I’m your 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
(How much longer)
he’s hungry and he’s sore
(How much longer)
And he’s lame and he’s blind
and he’s dirty and he’s poor
(How much longer)
Give him more
(How much longer)
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 tied
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’ll be 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
You might think he’s asleep
but look at his eyes
He wants you, baby, to be his bride
There’s a devil lying by your side

Loverman! Loverman!
