Evil
Mercyful Fate Lyrics


Evil

I was born on the cemetery
Under the sign of the moon
Raised from my grave by the dead
I was made a mercenary
In the legions of hell
Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane

[SOLO: HANK]

You know my only pleasure
Is to hear you cry
I'd love to hear you cry
I'd love to feel you die
And I'll be the first
To watch your funeral
And I'll be the last to leave
I'd love to hear you cry

[SOLO: HANK]

And when you're down beyond the ground
I'll dig up your body again
And make love to shame
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye

You've gotta say goodbye
'Cause I will eat your mind

[SOLO: MICHAEL & HANK & MICHAEL]

Oh lady cry, and say goodbye

At that moment in time, this and Venom was the scariest shit out there. This was total cutting edge metal, above and beyond pretty much everything else, although i will say that 1983 was an amazing year for all the new metal bands that came out and went on to define the genre. King's solo stuff had some good moments, but never captured the magic of this lineup.
