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, time, don’t know how many men’s soul unsaved
I was around when Jesus Christ had his moment of doubt and fate
Made damn sure that Pilot washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name
But what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was time for a change
I killed the Czar and his ministers, Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank with general’s rank, Red revolution was threatened by dark
The victims of the communist doctrine are rising and the future looks dark

Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name
But what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game
Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name
But what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game

Just as every cop is a criminal, and all you sinners are saints
The censors just call me Lucifer, ‘cos I’m in need of some restraint
If you meet me have some sympathy, have some courtesy, have some taste
Use all your well-earned poverty, for I’ll lay your soul to waste

Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name
But what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game
Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name
But what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game
