Sympathy for the Devil
(The Rolling Stones)

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 faith
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. Petersberg -- 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


I watched with 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
Please allow me to introduce myself --I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadors -- Who get killed before they reached Bombay 


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, um yeah


Woo, who..
Tell me baby, what's my name...Tell me honey, baby guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name... I tell you one time, you're to blame
What's my name...
Tell me, baby, what's my name... Tell me, sweetie, what's my name
