Lyrics
Please allow me to introduce myself:
Im a man of wealth and taste.
I've been around for a long, long year,
stole many a mans soul and faith.
And I was round when Jesus Christ,
had his moment of doubt and pain,
made d*** sure that pilate washed
his hands and sealed his fate.
Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my name,
but whats puzzling you
is the nature of my game.

I stuck around St. Petersburg,
when I saw it was a time for a change.
I killed the czar and his ministers.
Anastasia screamed in vain.
I rode a tank,
held a generals rank,
when the blitzkrieg raged
and the bodies stank.
Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my name,
but whats puzzling you
is the nature of my game.

<Instrumental>

Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my name,
but whats puzzling you
is the nature of my game.

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.
If you meet me, have some sympathy,
have some courtesy 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 whats puzzling you
is the nature of my game.

Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my name,
but whats puzzling you
is the nature of my game.
