LyricsEdit

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 



I 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 

(woo woo, woo woo) 



I watched with glee 

While your kings and queens 

Fought for ten decades 

For the gods they made 

(woo woo, woo woo) 



I shouted out, 

"Who killed the Kennedys?" 

When after all 

It was you and me 

(who who, who who) 



Let me please introduce myself 

I'm a man of wealth and taste 

And I laid traps for troubadours 

Who get killed before they reached Bombay 

(woo woo, who who) 



Pleased to meet you 

Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah 

(who who)

But what's puzzling you 

Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby 

(who who, who who) 



Pleased to meet you 

Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah 

But what's confusing you 

Is just the nature of my game 

(woo woo, who who) 



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 

(who who, who who) 



So if you meet me 

Have some courtesy 

Have some sympathy, have some taste 

(woo woo)

Use all your well-learned politesse 

Or I'll lay your soul to waste, mmm yeah 

(woo woo, woo woo) 



Pleased to meet you 

Hope you guessed my name, mmm yeah 

(who who)

But what's puzzling you 

Is the nature of my game, mmm mean it, get down 

(woo woo, woo woo) 



Woo, who 

Oh yeah, get on down 

Oh yeah 

Oh yeah! 

(woo woo) 



Tell me baby, what's my name 

Tell me honey, can ya guess my name 

Tell me baby, what's my name 

I tell you one time, you're to blame 



Oh, who 

woo, woo 

Woo, who 

Woo, woo 

Woo, who, who 

Woo, who, who 

Oh, yeah 



What's my name 

Tell me, baby, what's my name 

Tell me, sweetie, what's my name 



Woo, who, who 

Woo, who, who 

Woo, who, who 

Woo, who, who 

Woo, who, who 

Woo, who, who 

Oh, yeah 

Woo woo 

Woo woo
