Traditional
  1. The de'il cam' fiddlin' through the toon,
    And he's danced away wi' the exiseman,
    And ilka wife cries "Auld Mahoon",
    And I wish ye luck wi' your prize man.
    The de'il's awa’ , the de'il's awa', the de'il's awa' wi' th'exiseman,
    He's danced awa', he's danced awa', he’s danced awa' wi’ th'exiseman.
  2. We'll mak’ oor maut and we'll brew oor drink
    We'll sing and dance and rejoice man,
    And many braw thanks tae meikle black de'il
    That danced awa' wi' the exiseman.
    The de'il's awa’ , the de'il's awa', the de'il's awa' wi' th'exiseman,
    He's danced awa', he's danced awa', he’s danced awa' wi’ th'exiseman.
  3. There's threesome reels, and there's fowersome reels
    And there's hornpipes and Strathspeys man,
    But aye the best dance ever cam' tae the land
    Was the de'il's awa' wi' th'exiseman.
    The de'il's awa’ , the de'il's awa', the de'il's awa' wi' th'exiseman,
    He's danced awa', he's danced awa', he’s danced awa' wi’ th'exiseman.
