    premier couplet

    E                                 D

    Please allow me to introduce myself,
              A                       E

    I'm a man of wealth and taste.
     E                                D

    I've been around for a long, long year
                A                              E

    Stolen many a man's soul and faith.

    E                                                        A/C#  A

    I was 'round when Jesus Christ had His mo… ment


    of doubt and pain.
     E                                                     A/C#   A

    Made damn sure that Pilate …washed his hands

                           E        Esus    E         B

     and sealed His fate.



    refrain 1


    Pleased to meet you  

                             A           E                  A/E     E

     Hope you guess my … name.

    But what's puzzling you…

                            A       E           Esus                 E

     is the nature of my game.



    deuxième couplet

    Stuck around at Saint Petersburg
    When I saw it was a-time for a change.
    Killed the tzar and his ministers;
    Anastasia screamed in vain.
    I rode a tank held a general's rank
    When the blitzkrieg raged
    And the bodies stank.



    troisième couplet

    I watched with glee
    While your kings and queens (whoo whoo)
    Fought for ten decades (whoo whoo)
    For the gods they made. (whoo whoo)

    I shouted out, (whoo whoo)
    "Who killed the Kennedys?" (whoo whoo)
    When after all (whoo whoo)
    It was you and me. (whoo whoo)

    Let me please introduce myself (whoo whoo)
    I'm a man of wealth and taste. (whoo whoo)
    And I lay traps for troubadours (whoo whoo)
    Who get killed before they reached

    Bombay. (whoo whoo, whoo whoo)






    instrumental (sur les accords d’un couplet)






    quatrième couplet

    Just as every cop is a criminal (whoo whoo)
    And all the sinners, Saints. (whoo whoo)
    As heads is tails, (whoo whoo)
    Just call me Lucifer (whoo whoo)
    'Cause I'm in need of some restraint. (whoo whoo)

    So if you meet me, (whoo whoo)
    Have some courtesy (whoo whoo)
    Have some sympathy, (whoo whoo)

     and some taste. (whoo whoo)
    Use all your well-learned politesse (whoo whoo)
    Or I'll lay your soul to waste. (whoo whoo
