Sympathy For The Devil – Guns N’ Roses

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. Petersberg
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
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?”
When 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 troubadors
Who get killed before they reached Bombay

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s confusing you
Is just the nature of my game

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, um yeah

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um baby, get down

Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!

Tell me baby, what’s my name
Tell me honey, baby guess my name
Tell me baby, what’s my name
I tell you one time, you’re to blame

Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

What’s my name
Tell me, baby, what’s my name
Tell me, sweetie, what’s my name

Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

Don’t Cry – Guns N’ Roses

Talk to me softly
There’s something in your eyes
Don’t hang your head in sorrow
And please don’t cry
I know how you feel inside I’ve
I’ve been there before
Somethin’s changin’ inside you
And don’t you know

Don’t you cry tonight
I still love you baby
Don’t you cry tonight
Don’t you cry tonight
There’s a heaven above you baby
And don’t you cry tonight

Give me a whisper
And give me a sigh
Give me a kiss before you
tell me goodbye
Don’t you take it so hard now
And please don’t take it so bad
I’ll still be thinkin’ of you
And the times we had…baby

And don’t you cry tonight
Don’t you cry tonight
Don’t you cry tonight
There’s a heaven above you baby
And don’t you cry tonight

And please remember that I never lied
And please remember
how I felt inside now honey
You gotta make it your own way
But you’ll be alright now sugar
You’ll feel better tomorrow
Come the morning light now baby

And don’t you cry tonight
An don’t you cry tonight
An don’t you cry tonight
There’s a heaven above you baby
And don’t you cry
Don’t you ever cry
Don’t you cry tonight
Baby maybe someday
Don’t you cry
Don’t you ever cry
Don’t you cry
Tonight

Out Ta Get Me – Guns N’ Roses

Been hidin’ out
And layin’ low
It’s nothin’ new ta me
Well you can always find
a place to go
If you can keep your sanity
They break down the doors
And they rape my rights but
They won’t touch me
They scream and yell
And fight all night
You can’t tell me
I lose my head
I close my eyes
They won’t touch me
‘Cause I got somethin’
I been buildin’ up inside
For so fuckin’ long

[CHORUS:]

They’re out ta get me
They won’t catch me
I’m innocent
They won’t break me

Sometimes it’s easy to forget where you’re goin’
Sometimes it’s harder to leave
And everytime you think you know just what you’re doin’
That’s when your troubles exceed
They push me in a corner
Just to get me to fight but
They won’t touch me
They preach and yell
And fight all night
You can’t tell me
I lose my head
I close my eyes
They won’t touch me
‘Cause I got somethin’
I been buildin’ up inside
I’m already gone

[Chorus]

Some people got a chip on their shoulder
An some would say it was me
But I didn’t buy that fifth of whisky
That you gave me
So I’d be quick to disagree

[Chorus]

They’re out to get me
They won’t catch me
I’m innocent
So you can
Suck me
Take that one to heart

Locomotive – Guns N’ Roses

Gonna find a way to cure this loneliness
Yeah I’ll find a way to cure the pain
If I said that you’re my friend
And our love would never end
How long before I had your trust again
I opened up the doors when it was cold outside
Hopin’ that you’d find your own way in
But how can I protect you
Or try not to neglect you
When you won’t take the love I have to give
I bought me an illusion
An I put it on the wall
I let it fill my head with dreams
And I had to have them all
But oh the taste is never so sweet
As what you’d believe it is-
Well I guess it never is
It’s these prejudiced illusions
That pump the blood
To the heart of the biz

You know I never thought
That it could take so long
You know I never knew how to be strong
Yeah, I let you shape me
But I feel as though you raped me
‘Cause you climbed inside my world
And in my songs
So now I’ve closed the door
To keep the cold outside
Seems somehow I’ve found the will to live
But how can I forget you
Or try not to reject you
When we both know it takes time to forgive

Sweetness is a virtue
And you lost your virtue long ago
You know I’d like to hurt you
But my conscience always tells me no
You could sell your body on the street
To anyone whom you might meet
Who’d love to try and get inside
And bust your innocence open wide

‘Cause my baby’s got a locomotive
My baby’s gone off the track
My baby’s got a locomotive
Got ta peel the bitch off my back
I know it looks like I’m insane
Take a closer look I’m not to blame
No

Gonna have some fun with my frustration
Gonna watch the big screen in my head
I’d rather take a detour
‘Cause this road ain’t gettin’ clearer
Your train of thought has cut me off again
Better tame that boy ’cause he’s a wild one
Better tame that boy for he’s a man
Sweetheart don’t make me laugh
You’s gettin’ too big for your pants
And I’s think maybe you should
Cut out while you can
You can use you illusion-
Let it take you where it may
We live and learn
And then sometimes it’s best to walk away
Me I’m just here hangin’ on
It’s my only place to stay at least
For now anyway
I’ve worked too hard for my illusions
Just to throw them all away

I’m taking time for quiet consolation
In passing by this love that’s passed away
I know it’s never easy-
So why should you believe me
When I’ve always got so many things to say
Calling off the dogs a simple choice is made
‘Cause playful hearts
Can sometimes be enraged
You know I tried to wake you-
I mean how long could it take you
To open up your eyes and turn the page

Kindness is a treasure-
And it’s one towards me you’ve seldom shown
So I’ll say it for good measure
To all the ones like you I’ve known
Ya know I’d like to shave your head
And all my friends could
paint it red
‘Cause love to me’s a two way street
An all I really want is peace

But my baby’s got a locomotive
My baby’s gone off the track
My baby’s got a locomotive
Got ta peel the bitch off my back
I know it looks like I’m insane
Take a closer look I’m not to blame
No

Affection is a blessing
Can you find it in your sordid heart
I tried to keep this thing
ta-gether
But the tremor tore my pad apart
Yeah I know it’s hard to face
When all we’ve worked for’s gone to waste
But you’re such a stupid woman
And I’m such a stupid man
But love like time’s got its own plans

‘Cause my baby’s got a locomotive
My baby’s gone off the track
My baby’s got a locomotive
Got ta peel the bitch off my back
I know it looks like I’m insane
Take a closer look I’m not to blame
Yeah
If love is blind I guess
I’ll buy myself a cane

LOVE’S SO STRANGE
