Iím not the devil because I know Iím defeated
He is the ruler but heíll soon be unseated
He gives me sin so I would choose the dark side
Tells me Iím worthless so Iíll never make stride

He is the master of wicked device
How to be so evil and come over nice
I will not worship false idols at his will
He makes me forget that Iím doing it still

Iím not the devil I could not get that tan
Although I am in the sun as much as I can
He prepares a place I can bathe in the fire
For all to see theyíd think it was my desire

I fight the devil from this gravity well
He draws me farther down reaching to hell
To take this all lightly I just canít afford
Heavy on my heart weighs Jesus my Lord

Iím not the devil though his work will inspire
Make boys lawyers and girls bodies for hire
He is the savior for all losing their fight
I feel a little tug taking me into the night


-Please to meet you hope you guess my name
Whatís confusing you is the nature of my game
Sympathy for the Devil
Rolling Stones
