Sympathy For The Devil Lyrics

9. 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
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 time for a change
Killed the Tzar 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
What's puzzling you is the nature of my game

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?" 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
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
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game
