The Lyrics

The Devil went down to Scotland
He was lookin' for a soul to steal
He was in a bind, He was way behind
And he was willin' to make a deal
When he came upon this old man
Blowin on his bagpipes and playin it hot
And the Devil jumped up on a Scotish rock
And said "Man, lemme tell ya what"
I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a bagpipe player too
And if you care to take a dare I'll make a bet with you
Now you play pretty good bagpipes man
But give the Devil his due
I'll bet a manskirt of gold against your soul
'Cause I think I'm better than you"

The man said "My name's Angus,and it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet and you're gonna regret it,
'Cause I'm the best there's ever been"

Angus loosen up your mouth
And play your bagpipes hard
Cause the Devil is now in Scotland
And he's gonna deal the cards
And if you win you'll get this shiny manskirt made of gold
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul...

The devil took out his pipes
And he said I'll start this show
And fire flew from his fingertips
As he got ready to go
And he blew his mouth into the pipes
And it made an evil hiss
And then a band of demons joined in
And it sounded somethin' like this

(bapipes instrumental)

When the Devil finisned, Angus said
"You're pretty good laddie
But sit down there on that rock right there
And give a chance to me

He played bagpipes songs you've never heard
Some were so good they didn't need words
He made the devil feel so low
But he sure made it one good show

The Devil bowed his head
Because he knew that he'd been whooped
And he layed that golden manskirt on the ground at Angus' foot
Angus said "Devil, just c'mon back if you ever wanna lose again
'Cause I told you once you lad of a gun
That the best there's ever been

He played bagpipes songs you've never heard
Some were so good they didn't need words
He made the devil feel so low
But he sure made it one good show

Too close to the original, lad.

Yeah, it keeps an unfortunate amount of lines from the original, but it's still a nice spin on the song. I vote 444.

Sheer Brilliant is all I want to say. Would like to hear it sung properly my singing doesn't do it justice.
