[Alice]
Don't know why I'm down here
Must be something I said
Or some small imperfection
In my soul or in my head
Don't know why I'm down here
Don't deserve to roast or bake
I'm fighting off slanderous allegations
Why don't you give the kid a break?

[Alice]
Don't think maybe we could talk this over
You're a reasonable man
Could we discuss my grave situation
I'm a miserable man
And I'm in the frying pan
Give the kid a break (continues over dialog)

Devil: Give me one good reason why I should
Alice: All right, all right, so I made a few mistakes but listen.. But for heaven's sake
Devil: Watch your language, Kid.
Alice: OK, OK, don't get hot

[Devil]
Don't question my judgement
He only reaped what he sowed
He cast his pearls before swine
And that's good enough for me

[Devil]
I don't want to talk it over
Even tho' I'm a reasonable man
Sonny, from over here looks like you're in no position to bargain
You're a convicted man
You're right in the frying pan

Give the kid a break (continues over dialog

Alice: Yeah, Please give me a break
Devil: Nah, I don't think so, man
Alice: Come on, you know I got what it takes. Can't you give me a break?
Devil: Sure thing kid, when hell freezes over
Choir: Ok, don't give the kid a break
Alice: Hey you guys, I thought you were on my side
Choir: No. Give the kid a break
Alice: Yeah, well thanks a lot, pals
Alice: Listen boss, maybe we can make a little deal. Is there anything I can say, some kind of fine I can pay? Anything?

[Alice:
Don't know why I'm down here
Must be something I said (I'm sorry)
Or some small imperfection
In my soul or in my head
It might be some sort of imperfection
It might be a defection or a, a clear case of misdirection yeah
It must be a small imperfection
In my soul or in my head
Give the kid a break
