Sympathy for Mr. Kicks
Somewhere around 1960, Oscar Brown Jr. recorded Mr. Kicks.
Permit me to introduce myself
The name is Mr. Kicks
I dwell in the dark dominion
Way down by the River Styx
A more familiar song was released by
the Rolling Stones in 1968.
The first verse is
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 fate
