Guns N' Roses - Sympathy For The Devil lyrics


ad
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 around 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
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

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

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
[x2]

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
Because 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

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

Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah [2x]

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

Oh, yeah

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

Oh, yeah
