The Lyrics

Hispanics fear the Chupacabra... New Jersey folks fear the " New Jersey Devil!" Not a cryptozoological animal, but a myth started in the 1700s!
(thousands of sightings, believe not a one)

In the Pine Barrens,
From the pit of hell,
A winged goat, claws and forked tail
Is known there very well
Deborah Leeds to blame?
13th child cursed, tale spun around
Killed the midwife, out chimney flew in flames

It's the New Jersey Devil
The New Jersey Devil


Maybe an argument with Franklin (Franklin)*
Battle of Almanacs and all
Another Leeds had deceived us
Wyvern crest said it all, oh hell
Perhaps we'll never know
No evidence was found (found)
But in the 1900s, the stories did grow...

It's the New Jersey Devil
The New Jersey Devil [x2]

The New Jersey Devil
Oh no!!!

It's the New Jersey Devil
The New Jersey Devil [x2]

It's the New Jersey Devil
Mythical creature
The New Jersey Devil
More than mere hoax
It's the New Jersey Devil

Oh no!
It's the New Jersey Devil
* Benjamin Franklin
