 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    
Stole many a mans   soul and faith
E                    D           
And I was round when jesus christ
        A                   E   
Had his moment of doubt and pain
E                   D     
Made damn sure that pilate
           A                       E       B
Washed his hands    and sealed his fate     

 B                                      E   
Pleased to meet you   hope you guess my name
           B                                   E   
But what's puzzling you    is the nature of my game

E                  D         
I stuck around st. petersburg
       A                       E     
When I saw it was a time for a change
E                       D        
Killed the czar and his ministers
    A                  E   
Anastasia  screamed in vain
  E                    D            
I rode a tank   held a generals rank
          A                        E              B
When the blitzkrieg raged  and the bodies stank    

 B                                      E            
Pleased to meet you   hope you guess my name, oh yeah
           B                                 E            
But what's puzzling you  is the nature of my game, oh yeah

E                              D               
I watched with glee while your kings and queens
           A                    E             
Fought for ten decades  for the gods they made
E                             D        
I shouted out, who killed the kennedys?
     A                 E         
When after all  it was you and me

E                  D          
Let me please introduce myself
      A                 E    
I'm a man of wealth and taste
    E                 D         
And I laid traps for troubadours
        A                             E    B
Who get killed before they reached bombay   

 B                                      E            
Pleased to meet you   hope you guess my name, oh yeah
           B                                 E            
But what's puzzling you  is the nature of my game, oh yeah
