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 whats 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 generals rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, whats 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
Im a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But whats 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 whats 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 Im 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 Ill lay your soul to waste, um yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game,

love the song, but always half confused me as to why these particular historical references were made
You don't see the work of the devil in these?

The "Troubadours who got killed before they reached Bombay" refers to the hippies who traveled the "Hippie Trail" by road. Many on them were killed and ripped off by drug peddlers in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Those shady deals were probably the "traps."

Artistic license, they need the prose to flow. Now shut the fuck up, you're ruining the song in my head.

Found this on another site, interesting view...

I have always taken the troubador line as a reference to the Beatles. They were not as a group killed, of course, but when they became more mystical in their song writing, they lost touch to a certain extent with the commom man. This new "mystical" direction was resultant of their following of indian philosophies...aka Bombay.

Interesting about that song is that they stopped performing it live after the Hell's Angels killed a guy they thought was weilding a weapon and was about to go after Mick.

The stage they were performing on at Altamont Speedway was about 3 feet high.... the Stones had hired the Hell's Angels to do security for them. Mick was a little freaked out about the crowd getting really close to the stage throughout the show.. told them to stop pushing around so much.. then when one of the fans made a seemingly threatening gesture, the Angels went after him and killed him..

They said....."Something strange always happens when we do that song...."

When they came to Dallas in '89 they did the song, but Mick was way up on a platform about 80 feet in the air...
