PLEASED TO MEET YOU….

“You can’t be serious. Why would he tell you you can’t eat from the best tree of them all? He’s afraid you will be smarter than him.”

“What is wrong with this guy, building a big boat? Is he crazy? There has never been a flood before. He is a total nutcase.”

“You are a mighty people. You don’t need God giving you orders. You should build a tower up to heaven. You can do it!”

“You need to be careful. You don’t want to anger the gods. You should sacrifice your oldest kid to gain their favor.”

“You know, all the problems are because of those Jews. You should lock them all up in camps. Actually, kill them . They are the only thing keeping you from becoming the most powerful leader on earth.”

“ You should make the government more powerful, religious people are holding you back, believing in a god. You should make the government GOD.”

“Who says men can’t marry men, or women marry women. You love who you love, what’s the difference?”

“You are not ready to be a mom. Don’t you see how that will destroy your life? You haven’t really lived yet. You should get an abortion. It’s only a clump of cells.”

“You don’t need no paper from the city hall, keeping you tied and true. Love will keep you together.”

“You can make more on welfare than you make on that crummy job you have.”

“You don’t have to get married. Just go ahead and live together. If it doesn’t work out, you are free to leave.”

“You should have the right to choose what you do with your own body.”

“This virus is really, really deadly. You have to protect the people. You should shut everything down, tell people to remain in their houses to stop the spread. Churches. Those are really a bad place for spreading germs. Be sure to shut them down, right away.”

“Do you see what the police are doing. You need to let them know you won’t put up with that anymore. Riot, protest, cause some damage to get their attention.”

“If you tell that enough times, they will come to believe it is true.”

“You can’t compromise. You must resist everything they try. Otherwise, they will gain all the power.”

“If they are trying to argue against you, just shut them down. Get louder than they are. Don’t let them speak to the young people.”

“Don’t compromise. Your reelection is the most important thing. Just tell them what they want to hear. you can back off of it later.”

“You just need to change the subject, change the focus, when they start to question you.”

“There is no God! Churches just want your money, they just want to control you.”

“You will be happy if you just do what you want.”

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 to waste
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. 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 general’s rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, 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 troubadours
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, mm yeah
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, mm yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, mm yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, mm mean it, get down
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Tell me baby, what’s my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what’s my name
I tell you one time, you’re to blame
Oh, right
What’s my name
Tell me, baby, what’s my name
Tell me, sweetie, what’s my name
