Sympathy for the devil

Song Author Mick Jagger Lyrics by: Keith Richards Performer: The Rolling Stones Submitted by: Anonymous
[E]Please allow me to intro[D]duce myself,
I'm a [A]man of wealth and [E]taste
[E]I've been around for [D]long, long years
I've [A]stolen many a man's soul and [E]faith
[E]I was around when [D]Jesus Christ
had his [A]moments of doubt and [E]pain
[E]I made damn sure that [D]Pilate
washed his [A]hands and sealed his [E]fate

[B]Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my [E]name,
but what's [B]puzzling you,
is the nature of my [E]game

[E]I stuck around St. [D]Petersburg
when I [A]saw it was time for a [E]change
[E]I killed the Czar and his [D]ministers,
Ana[A]stasia screamed in [E]vain
[E]I rode a tank, held a [D]gen'ral's rank,
when the [A]blitzkrieg raged and the [E]bodies stank

[B]Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my [E]name,
but what's [B]puzzling you,
is the nature of my [E]game

[E]I watched with glee while your [D]kings and queens,
fought for [A]ten decades for the [E]gods they made
[E]I shouted out "Who killed the [D]Kennedys?",
when after [A]all it was you and [E]me  
[E]So let me please intro[D]duce myself,
I am a [A]man of wealth and [E]taste
[E]And I lay traps for [D]troubadours,
who get [A]killed before they [E]reach Bombay

[B]Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my [E]name,
but what's [B]puzzling you,
is the nature of my [E]game

[E]Just as every cop is [D]criminal,
and all the [A]sinners, [E]Saints
[E]As heads is tails, just call me [D]Lucifer,
'cause I'm in [A]need of some rest[E]raint
[E]So if you meet me, have some [D]courtesy,
have some [A]sympathy and some [E]taste
[E]Use all your well-learned poli[D]tesse,
or I'll [A]lay your soul to [E]waste

[B]Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my [E]name,
but what's [B]puzzling you,
is the nature of my [E]game

Please allow me to introduce myself,
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for long, long years
I've stolen many a man's soul and faith
I was around when Jesus Christ
had his moments of doubt and pain
I 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 time for a change
I killed the Czar and his ministers,
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank, held a gen'ral'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
So let me please introduce myself,
I am a man of wealth and taste
And I lay traps for troubadours,
who get killed before they reach Bombay

Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my name,
but what's puzzling you,
is the nature of my game

Just as every cop is 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

Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my name,
but what's puzzling you,
is the nature of my game
