Sympathy for the Devil
The Rolling Stones Lyrics


Yow, yow
Yow
Mm-huh
Mm-uh

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 '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. 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
Oh, yeah
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
Oh, yeah

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?"
Well, after all, it was you and me
Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reach 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
A-get down, baby

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

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
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, mm, yeah

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
Mm, yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
Mean it
Get down

Woo-hoo
Ah, yeah
Get on down
Oh, yeah
Mm
Bum, ba-bum, bum, bum, ba-bum
Ba-bum, bum, bum, ba-bum
Bum, ba-bum, bum, bum, ba-bum
Bum, dum, bum, bum, ba-dum, da
Yeah
Ah, yeah

Tell me, baby, what's my name?
Tell me, honey, can you guess my name?
Tell me, baby, what's my name?
I'll tell you one time, you're to blame
Ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo
Ooh-hoo, alright
Ooh-hoo-hoo, ooh-hoo-hoo
Ooh-hoo-hoo, ah, yeah
Ooh-hoo-hoo, ooh-hoo-hoo
Ah yes, what's my name?
Tell me, baby, what's my name?
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name?

Ooh-hoo-hoo, ooh-hoo-hoo
Ooh-hoo-hoo, ooh-hoo-hoo
Ooh-hoo-hoo, ooh-hoo-hoo
Ooh-hoo-hoo, ah, yeah

비정한세상

Please allow me to introduce myself
제 소개를 하자면
I'm a man of wealth and taste
나는 부와 품격을 겸비한 신사랍니다
I've been around for a long, long year
나는 오랜 세월을 방랑했었죠
Stole many a man's soul and fate
많은 인간의 영혼과 운명을 훔치면서 말이죠
And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
난 예수가 회의와 고통의 시험에 들었던 순간에도
Had his moment of doubt and pain
곁에 있었습니다.
Made damn sure that Pilate
물론 빌라도가 회개하고 자신의 운명을
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
받아들였을 때도 말이죠

Pleased to meet you
만나서 반갑습니다
Hope you guess my name
제 이름을 한번 맞춰 보시죠
But what's puzzling you
좀 혼란스러울지도 모르겠지만
Is the nature of my game
그게 제 수수께끼의 본질이랍니다.

Stuck around St. Petersberg
상트페테르부르크에 도달했을 때
When I saw it was a time for a change
전 변혁의 시대를 보았죠
Killed the Czar and his ministers
차르와 성직자들은 죽임을 당했고
Anastasia screamed in vain
아나스타샤는 공허한 비명을 질렀죠
I rode a tank In a general's rank
전 장군의 직위에서 탱크도 몰았습니다
When the Blitzkrieg raged
전격전이 격렬해지고
And the bodies stank
시체 썩는 냄새가 코를 찔렀답니다.

I watched with glee
전 당신들의 왕과 여왕이
While your kings and queens
스스로가 만든 신을 위해 일백 년간 싸워 댔을 때도
Fought for ten decade For the God they made
비웃으며 지켜봤었습니다.
I shouted out "Who killed the Kennedys?"
난 소리질렀죠. "누가 케네디 내외를 죽였나?"
When after all It was you and me
결과를 보자면 그건 바로 당신과 저였죠
Let me please introduce myself
제 소개를 하자면
I'm a man of wealth and taste
저는 부와 품격을 겸비한 신사랍니다.
And I laid traps for troubadors
그리고 저는 봄베이로 향하는 음유시인들이
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
도착하기도 전에 죽도록 마약을 주기도 했죠

Just as every cop is a criminal
모든 경찰이 범죄자이듯이,
And all the sinners Saints
모든 죄 지은 자는 성자이듯이
As head is tail
또는 머리가 곧 꼬리가 되듯이
Just call me Lucifer
저를 루시퍼라고 부르시죠.
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint
왜냐면 전 저를 자제할 필요가 좀 있거든요
So if you meet me Have some courtesy
그러니 저를 만나게 되면 예를 갖추시길 바랍니다
Have some sympathy, and some taste
약간의 공감과 품격도 말이죠.
Use all your well learned qualities
당신이 배운 모든 자질을 동원해서 말입니다.
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah
그렇지 않으면 당신의 영혼을 텅 비워 버릴 테니

This is a prime example of those songs with lyrics that talk about really bad things but the music is so good you can’t help but dance along

@Adamas Rain your philosophy would go against every ancient teaching. Stop preaching new age bs, even buddhism states the importance of yin and yang both being the the balance of eachother light (pure good energy) dark (pure evil). Every person contains yin and yang, but the issue is most people give in to the ideology of yin while forgetting about yang which is what brings you down in life. If you want to move foward you cannot only do so with the power of yin, in the end yang is the same as yin as all energy transfers into eachother. So treat both versions of yourself with respect. Meaning sometimes if you wish to give into good nature do so, and when you are tempted with bad nature (i.e what people tend to tell you is bad. Drugs personally i only reccomend psychedelics and weed, sex, gambling, masterbation). The problem with people is they have no self control which is why most people who partake in these activities fall down at some point. If you keep the concept of yin and yang throughout your life you will reach the true after life. Agartha as buddhists described it, the ancient city in which the wise remain. I am only 18 so i shouldnt focus on it too much but oh i so hope i keep this knowledge throughout my life. Yin and yang is likely the most important concept in the whole universe. Its the only thing that will “save” you from “them”. Thats why the society is designed for use to only give into either yin or yang, otherwise you are a “hypocrite” when you dont even judge.

@Adamas Rain what you preach is blasphemy, i will be reborn into a eternal sex party if i wanna be reborn into a eternal sex party because after you die its a huge dmt trip and all that matters is your intent for the next life😎
