Wrapped Around Your Finger Lyrics

You consider me the young apprentice
Caught between the Scylla and Charybdis
Hypnotized by you if I should linger
Staring at the ring around your finger

I have only come here seeking knowledge
Things they would not teach me of in college
I can see that destiny you sold
Turned into a shining band of gold

I'll be wrapped around your finger
I'll be wrapped around your finger

Mephistopheles is not your name
I know what you're up to just the same
I will listen hard to your 'tuition
You will see it come to it's fruition

I'll be wrapped around your finger
I'll be wrapped around your finger

Devil and the deep blue sea behind me
Vanish in the air you'll never find me
I will turn your flesh to alabaster
Then you'll find your servant is your master

Oh, you'll be wrapped around my finger
You'll be wrapped around my finger
You'll be wrapped around my finger
Ohhh

it talks about the power of the religious leadership who use their power to tide us to their beliefs and their sistems, the ring means power who wear it. but Jesus say the servants will be the master

About a man involved with a self-serving woman who has secured her future by marrying a wealthy man whom she does not love. She takes this naive man as her lover, and he opines that she will one daybfind herself consumed by her feelings for him, as he is overwhelmed by her sexual power over him.

You Americans are an odd lot, always wedging sex and Jesus into unrelated topics. You should read more too. The imagery in the song comes from Homer and Goethe, and it is far from a love song.

J. R. R. Tolkien .The lord of the rings. Everybody is controlled by the infinite power only one may carry and that power is wrapped around the finger of only one. The Ring that rules over all kings.

It's about a man getting married to a manipulative woman, who left him little choice but to do it. He hopes to become as good at being manipulative and deceptive as her so he will control her.

The song is about deception. In how you can give someone everything they want. They think they're getting over on you, but in reality you are making them dependant on you for everything they need.

I thought it was about a con artist teaching someone how to con others threw marriage. The young apprentice. Hypnotized by you if I should linger because this person charms the victims into marriage.

It's about a married woman toying with another man that she knows wants her. The destiny she sold was to get married to someone else - she chose that; but, she realized she still wants the other man.

Why does this love song sound to me like an affair with a married teacher? These guys had other songs about teacher-student affairs(Don't Stand So Close To Me).
