Aangenaam, hopelijk weet u mijn naam al

De laatste ronde van de Roel Janssenlijst van LP’s van 1968, we zijn toe aan


  • Beggars Banquet – Rolling Stones
  • The Soft Machine – The Soft Machine
  • S.F. Sorrow – The Pretty Things

Niet gedateerd:
Trippin’thru’ a midnight blues – Cuby & the Blizzards

Street fighting man moest zo nodig op de LP maar representatiever is deze track, later op single uitgebracht.

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. 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


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 reach Bombay


Oh yeah, get down heavy!
(Instrumentaal intermezzo)


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

(Refrein / Outro)
