The Lyrics

You have to be a major band nerd to really appreciate this one, but it's still a good time, no matter.
Sympathy For The Devil

(Mark time! Mark! Forward March!)

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a person of commands and time
I haven't been around for too long
Stole many a drill masters' soul and shine

And I was 'round in field shows
In those moments of undoubted rain
"The drum line's gotta crab walk.
Roll outta the way if you fall," said Nate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my rank
But what's puzzling you
Is the meaning of my name

I stuck around for sectionals
When I saw it was a time for a change
Taught many to roll step
Section leaders screamed in vain

I hold a mace
Remembered the right breathing place
When Mr. Leeb raged
'Cause the playing stank

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my rank, oh yeah
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the meaning of the football game, oh yeah
(woo woo, woo woo)

I watched with glee
While our directors screamed
What seemed like ten decades
About the drills they made
(woo woo, woo woo)

I shouted out,
"Who killed the grass?"
When after all
It was the low brass
(who who, who who)

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of tempo and commands
And I laid traps for trumpets
So they get back at me during concert band
(woo woo, who who)

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my rank, oh yeah
(who who)
But what's puzzling you
Is the meaning of my name, oh yeah, march it, baby
(She doesn't, play drums)

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my rank, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is the meaning of my name.
(She doesn't, play drums)

Just as every director is a student
And all the marchers ain't
As forwards is backwards
Just call me Drum Major
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint
(who who, who who)

So if you meet me
Seeking ability
Have some stability, and some time
(woo woo)
We'll go over all your well-learned marching skills
Or I'll destroy your drill maters' soul and shine, um yeah
(woo woo, woo woo)

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
(who who)
But what's puzzling you
Is the meaning of the football game, um march it, 12 counts
(woo woo, woo woo)

Woo, who
Oh yeah, march it now
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
(woo woo)

Tell me baby, what's my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name
We'll march it ten times, the whole band's to blame

Oh, who
woo, woo
Woo, who
Woo, woo
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Oh, yeah

What's my name
What's the meaning of my name
Tell me, why the football game?

Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Woo, who, who
Oh, yeah
Woo woo
Woo woo
