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
Stole many a man's soul to waste


 

And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment 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
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
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
(Woo woo, woo woo)

I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
(Woo woo, woo woo)

I shouted out,
Who killed the Kennedys?
When after all
It was you and me
(Who who, who who)

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
(Woo woo, who who)

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
(Who who)
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
(Who who, who who)

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
(Woo woo, who who)

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
(Who who, who who)

So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
(Woo woo)
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, mm yeah
(Woo woo, woo woo)

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, mm yeah
(Who who)
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, mm mean it, get down
(Woo woo, woo woo)

Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
(Woo woo)

Tell me baby, what's my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name
I tell you one time, you're to blame

Oh, who
Woo, woo
Woo, who
Woo, woo
Woo, who, who [x2]
Oh, yeah

What's my name
Tell me, baby, what's my name
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name

Woo, who, who [x6]
Oh, yeah
Woo woo [x2]

NOT The Rolling Stones-'Symptoms of the Devil'

 

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and no taste
I've been around, oh it seems like many years
I'm everywhere, right in your face

 

I'm on par with Jesus Christ,
and every word I spew is a lie
I'll make sure if you speak against,
I'll f**k you up, and then you'll be past tense

 

You're pleased to meet me,
I hammer home my name
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
(Woo woo, who who)

 

I stuck around like a nightmare,
I'm living off my business name

Ah, what's puzzling you
is how I stayed in the game, oh yeah
(Woo woo, woo woo)

 

Rode ignorance to the white house,
based on my business sense
You'll forgot that they went tits up,
and my distraction is Mike Pence

 

You're pleased to meet me,
I hammer home my name
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
(Woo woo, who who)

 

I watched with glee
as you morons voted for me
Wasn't serious, but that did not dissuade
Voted for me no matter what I'd say
(Woo woo, woo woo)

 

I shouted out out,
'Grab 'em by the p****y,'
and that should have ended it all,
but no, not for me
(Who who, who who)

 

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and no taste
I've said so many offensive things
and it only made me seem better, helped my case
(Woo woo, who who)

 

You're pleased to meet me,
I hammer home my name
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
(Woo woo, who who)

 

You're pleased to meet me,
I hammer home my name
But what's puzzling you
Is just the nature of my fame
(Woo woo, who who)

 

Just as so many of ya' are gullible,
I use that to my side
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
Climb on up and take ride

 

So if you meet me
have some reverence,
fall to your knees and worship me,

or I'll make you so past tense

(Woo woo)
 

Kiss my wealthy backside,
or I'll lay your soul to waste, mm yeah
(Woo woo, woo woo)

 

You're pleased to meet me,
I hammer home my name
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
(Woo woo, who who)

 

As it should be
Oh yeah, go on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
(Woo woo)

 

You're pleased to meet me,
I hammer home my name
But what is puzzling you,
is just the nature of my game
(Woo woo, who who)

Oh, who
Woo, woo
Woo, who
Woo, woo
Woo, who, who [x2]
Oh, yeah

Say my name
Tell me, baby, what's my game
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name

Woo, who, who [x6]
Oh, yeah
Woo woo [x2]
