Stop up an' see me some time!
Lucifer!

By the mansion by the hillside
Red sportscar comes drivin' down the road
And pulls up into the driveway
And the story does unfold

She's standin' by the rhododendrons
Where the roses are in bloom
Looking out at the Atlantic ocean
In her head she hums this tune

Thank God the dark nights are gone
This high summer's got me down
Yet I wait 'till the end of August
Get off this merri-go-round

And they shut him out of paradise
Called him Lucifer and frowned
He was proud of what God made him
Even before the angels shot him down to the ground

He's light out of the darkness
And he wears a starry crown
If ya see him, nothin's shakin'
This high summer's got him lowdown
Lowdown

Horns!

High summer's got him lonesome
Even when he makes the rounds
Makes the rounds
Ain't no two ways about it
High summer's got him lowdown
Lowdown

Checked into the tiny village by the lakeside
Settled down to start anew
Far away from the politicans
And the many chosen few

Far away from the jealousy factor!
Ev'rything that was tearin' him apart
Far away from the organ grinder
Ev'ryone that played that part

And the dark nights are gone again
This high summer's got me down
Have to wait 'till the end of August
Get off this merri-go-round

And they shoved him out of paradise
Called him 'Lucifer' and frowned
He was proud of what God made him
Even before the angels shot him to the ground

He's a light out of the darkness
An' he wears a starry crown
If ya see him nothin's shakin'
High summer's got him lowdown
Lowdown

(Instrumental & harmonica)

Well, summer on the rebound
Hey, summer's got him lowdown
Yeah, summer on the rebound
Oh, summer's got him lowdown
Lowdown.
