    Don't Deal With the Devil 
Well, Cuphead and his pal Mugman,
They like to roll the dice.
By chance they came 'pon devil's game,
and gosh they paid the price (paid the price!)

And now they're fighting for their lives,
on a mission fraught with dread.
and if they proceed, but don't succeed,
Weeell the devil will take their heads!
Don't Deal with the Devil

    Die House 
I'm Mister King Dice,
I'm the gamest in the land,
I never play nice,
I'm the Devil's right hand man.

I can't let you pass,
cause you ain't done everything,
bring me those contracts,
come on, bring 'em to the king.

If you haven't finished your task,
haven't worked assiduously,
no, I cannot let you pass,
don't you mess with me!

Don't mess with King Dice!
(Don't mess with King Dice!)
Don't mess with me!
(Don't mess with him!)
Don't mess with King Dice!
(Don't Mess with King Dice!)
Don't mess with me!

I'm Mister King Dice,
heed just what I say,
the Devil has his price,
and I'll make sure you pay.

I don't have time to mess 'round,
and I hope you will agree,
bring me those contracts, Pronto!
Don't you mess with me!

Don't mess with King Dice!
(Don't mess with King Dice!)
Don't mess with me!
(Don't mess with him!)
Don't mess with King Dice!
(Don't Mess with King Dice!)
Don't mess with meee yeah!
    A Quick Break 
It's nice to rest your eyes and maybe go outside,
Grab a book and get some air,
So what are you waiting for?

Why not take a quick break?
Tune the radio.
(There's) Chores to do, there's leaves to rake,
Strum the old banjo.

(You) You can practice your lindy hop,
And maybe later sing with your barber shop.

(Why) Why not take a little quick break,
And come back for (more) more?
Then come back for (more) more;
Please come back for more!
A Quick Break

    Closing Credits 
Well, Cuphead gambled with the Devil,
Thought he'd win a hefty purse.
Mugman came along to help him.
But things, they just got worse.

That's all there is! There isn't any more... or is there? Heh heh heh heh heh heh... hahahaha...

    Switch Announcement Trailer 
Well, Cuphead's on his way,
His pal Mugman in tow.
Going adventuring
to escape the Devil's grope.
You can play at your home,
but now here's something rich:
You can play while you roam,
Cuphead's coming to Switch!
