Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Light a candle, everything's all right.

Oh, when I was a baby child,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil
Good and bad, was just a game,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night
But many years and many trials
Shut de do, keep out de debbil
They proved to me that they're not the same.
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night.

Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Light a candle, everything's all right.

Oh, Satan is an evil charmer,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil
He's hungry for a soul to hurt,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night
And without your holy armor,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil
He will eat you for dessert.
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night.

Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Light a candle, everything's all right.

My mama used to sing this song,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil
My papa used to sing it too,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night
Jesus called and took them home,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil
And so I sing this song for you.
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night.

Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night,
Shut de do, keep out de debbil,
Light a candle, everything's all right.

You better
Shut de do, keep out de debbil
You gotta
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night
Shut de do, keep de debbil in the night
Light a candle, everything's all right.
Light a candle, everything's all right.
