"Evil" as written by Kim Bendix Petersen and Hank Shermann....
Evil

I was born on the cemetery
Under the sign of the moon
Raised from my grave by the dead
I was made a mercenary
In the legions of hell
Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane

[SOLO: HANK]

You know my only pleasure
Is to hear you cry
I'd love to hear you cry
I'd love to feel you die
And I'll be the first
To watch your funeral
And I'll be the last to leave
I'd love to hear you cry

[SOLO: HANK]

And when you're down beyond the ground
I'll dig up your body again
And make love to shame
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye

You've gotta say goodbye
'Cause I will eat your mind

[SOLO: MICHAEL & HANK & MICHAEL]

    General CommentNO COMMENT? Jesus christ this song is outstanding. My guess is that it's about necromancers going to a graveyard and summoning good 'ol King Diamond. He thens starts his immortal killing rampage.

    General CommentThis is the first Mercyful Fate song I ever heard. Metal Shop, 1983...

    I was like, "Man that's bad ass music! But Geez, what's with the vocals? But, Man! That's some bad ass music!!!" And yeah, eventually, I bought the album, and the rest is history. I saw MF in Dallas in 1984 in support of the DBtO album, with Motorhead headlining, and Exciter were the openers... What a show! King D pointed right at me and said something unintelligible in the mic...

    There are some problems with the lyrics above...

    General CommentI agree with Aniland, why aren't there any comments? This is a great introduction to any person listening to King for the first time, as it was to me when I first heard it. Already gave me what's expected to hear.
