Sympathy for the Devil: New Verses

While listening to a local musician play “Sympathy for the Devil” recently, it occured to me that the time had come to add some new verses… so here you go:

The golden calf is all grown up
I’m the bull that rules your souls
I make you rampage over Creation
For the silliest of goals
I’ve set up frauds
In the name of God
And you follow them – now don’t you find that odd?
Pleased to meet you…

I set up shop in Washington
Got one in Tel Aviv
I relish Gaza’s sufferings
Made a hell that they can’t leave
Made a deal with a chump
By the name of Trump
On God’s own Church we’ll take a dump
Pleased to meet you…

Devil Don’t Care

(a song by Blind Peanut Nicholson)

the devil don’t care who’s talkin bout who
as long as there’s gossip going on
the devil don’t care who’s talkin bout who
and we play right along
in the church or in the bar
a little bitty lie can run real far
the devil don’t care who’s talkin bout who
as long as there’s gossip going on

the devil don’t care who’s fightin who
as long as there’s fightin going on
the devil don’t care who’s fightin who
and we play right along
devil don’t care about left or right
he only likes to start a good fight
the devil don’t care who’s fightin who
as long as there’s fightin going on

the devil don’t care who’s hatin who
as long as there’s hatin going on
the devil don’t care who’s hatin who
and we play right along
devil don’t care who’s good or bad
just loves to get everybody really mad
the devil don’t care who’s hatin who
as long as there’s hatin going on

the devil don’t care who’s shootin who
as long as there’s shootin goin on
the devil don’t care who’s shootin who
and we play right along
could be the crooks, could be the cops
just as long as the shootin never stops
the devil don’t care who’s shootin who
as long as there’s shootin goin on

the devil don’t care who’s killin who
as long as there’s killin going on
the devil don’t care who’s killin who
and we play right along
white or black or blue or red
long as he gets to collect the dead
the devil don’t care who’s killin who
as long as there’s killin going on
no, the devil don’t care who’s killin who
as long as there’s killin going on
