The record reached #2 on the Billboard chart and was a million seller. The B-side, "Rose, Rose, I Love You", was a hit too and reached #3.

Jezebel, Jezebel

If ever the devil was born without a pair of horns
It was you, Jezebel, it was you
If ever an angel fell, Jezebel, it was you
Jezebel, it was you

If ever a pair of eyes promised paradise
Deceiving me, grieving me, leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you

If ever the devil's plan was made to torment man
It was you, Jezebel, it was you

Could be better had I never known a lover such as you
Forsaking dreams and all for the siren call of your arms

Like a demon, love possessed me, you obsessed me constantly
What evil star is mine, that my fate's design should be Jezebel?

If ever a pair of eyes promised paradise
Deceiving me, grieving me, leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you

If ever the devil's plan was made to torment man
It was you, Jezebel, it was you, night and day, every way
Jezebel, Jezebel, Jezebel!
