Music : The Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil




Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long long year
Stolen many man's soul and faith
I was around when Jesus Christ
Had His moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Ponce Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game


Stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the Tzar and his ministers,
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank held a gen'rals rank
When the blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name. Oh yeah
Ah what's puzzling you is the nature of my game. Oh yeah

I watched the glee while your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades for the Gods they made
I shouted out Who killed the Kennedy's ?
When after all it was you and me

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I lay traps for troubadors
Who get killed before they reach Bombay
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name. Oh yeah
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game. Oh yeah
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners, Saints
As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer
'cause I'm in need of some restraint
So if you meet me, have some courtesy
Have some sympathy and some taste
Use all your well learned politesse
Or I'll lay your soul to waste
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game
