Sympathy for the devil Lyrics

Sympathy for the devil by Natalie Merchant  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Sympathy for the devil Yow! Yow! Yow! 
Umph, ca, umph, umph 

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 fate 

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 

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 
In a general's rank 
When the Blitzkrieg raged 
And the bodies stank 

Pleased to meet you 
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah 
What's puzzling you 
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah 

I watched the gleam [Who, Who] 
While you kings and queens 
Fought for ten decades 
For the Goth 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 laid tracks for troubadors 
Who get killed before they reached Bombay 

Pleased to meet you 
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah 
But what's puzzling you 
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby 

Ma, oo 
Oooa 

Pleased to meet you 
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah 
But what's confusing you 
Is just the nature of my game 

Just as every cop is a criminal 
And all the sinners Saints 
As I end this tale 
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 qualities 
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah 

Pleased to meet you 
Hope you guess my name, um yeah 
But what's puzzling you 
Is the nature of my game, um baby, get down 

Woo, who 
Oh yeah, get on down 
Oh yeah 
Oh yeah! 

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, your to blame 

Ooo, who 
Ooo, who 
Ooo, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Oh, yeah 

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

Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Ooo, who, who 
Oh, yeah
