Sympathy for the Devil Songtext

Please, allow me to introduce myself
I′m a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man′s soul and fate

I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moments of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the Czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank, held a General′s rank
When the Blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank


Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Oh, 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 Kennedys?"
Well, after all, it was you and me

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached 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
Rock it down, baby

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 politics
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, mmm yeah

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, mmm yeah
But what′s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, made it
Get down

Woo-hoo
Oh, yeah
Please, don't do that
Oh, yeah

Hey
Aw, yeah
