19th Nervous breakdown

You’re the kind of person you meet at certain dismal dull affairs.

Center of a crowd, talking much too loud running up and down the stairs.

Well, it seems to me that you have seen too much in too few years.

And though you’ve tried you just can’t hide your eyes are edged with tears.


 

You better stop, look around, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes,

Here it comes. Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown.

 

When you were a child you were treated kind

But you were never brought up right.

You were always spoiled with a thousand toys but still you cried all night.

Your mother who neglected you woes a million dollars tax.

And your father’s still perfecting ways of making sealing wax.

 

You better stop, look around, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes,

Here it comes. Here comes your nilne-teenth nervous breakdown.

 

Oh, who’s to blame, that girl’s just insane.


Well nothing I do don’t seem to work,

It only seems to make matters worse. Oh please.

 

You were still in school when you had that fool who really messed your mind.

And after that you turned your back on treating people kind.

On our first trip I tried so hard to rearrange your mind.

But after while I realized you were disarranging mine.

 

You better stop, look around, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes,

Here it comes. Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown.

Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown

 

 

Ain’t to proud to beg

I know you wanna leave me, but I refuse to let you go

If I have to beg, plead for sympathy

I don’t mind, ’cause it means that much to me

 

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

 

Well I heard a quiet man is half a man, with no sense of pride

If I have to cry to keep ya I don’t mind weepin’

If weepin’ gonna keep ya by my side

 

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

 

If I have to sleep on your doorstep all night and day

Just to keep you from walkin’ away

Let my friends laugh, for this I can stand

‘Cause I wanna I keep ya, yeah, yeah, I can

 

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

 

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

 

I got a love so deep in the pit of my heart

Ev’ry day it grows more and more

I’m not ashamed to come and plead with you, baby

If pleadin’ keeps you from walkin’ out the door

 

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

 

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, don’t you go

 

 

Angie

Angie Angie when will those clouds all disappear?

Angie Angie where will it lead us from here?

With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats

You can’t say we’re satisfied

But Angie Angie you can say we never tried

Angie you’re beautiful but ain’t it time we said good bye?

Angie I still love you remember all those nights we cried?

All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke

 

Let me whisper in your ear:

Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?

 

Oh, Angie don’t you weep, all your kisses still taste sweet

I hate that sadness in your eyes

But Angie, Angie, ain;t it time we said good-bye?

With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats

You can’t say we’re satisfied

But Angie, I still love you, baby

Ev’rywhere I look I see your eyes

There ain’t a women that comes close to you

Come on baby, dry your eyes

But Angie, Angie ain’t it good to be alive?

Angie, Angie, they can’t say we never tried.

 

 

As tears go by

It is the evening of the day

I sit and watch the children play

Smiling faces I can see

But not for me

I sit and watch

As tears go by

 

My riches can’t buy everything

I want to hear the children sing

All I hear is the sound

Of rain falling on the ground

I sit and watch

As tears go by

 

It is the evening of the day

I sit and watch the children play

Doing things I used to do

They think are new

I sit and watch

As tears go by

 

 

Beast of burden

I’ll never be your beast of burden

My back is broad but it’s a hurtin

All I want is for you to make love to me

 

I’ll never be your beast of burden

I’ve walked for miles, my feet are hurtin

All I want is for you to make love to me

 

Am I hard enough

Am I rough enough

Am I rich enough

I’m not too blind to see

 

I’ll never be your beast of burden

So let’s go home and draw the curtains

Music on the radio

Come on baby make sweet love to me

 

Am I hard enough

Am I rough enough

Am I rich enough

I’m not too blind to see

 

Oh little sister

Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty girls

 

You’re a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty girl

Pretty, pretty such a pretty, pretty, pretty girl

Come on baby please, please, please

I’ll tell ya

 

You can put me out on the street

Put me out with no shoes on my feet

But put me out, put me out

Put me out of misery

 

All your sickness I can suck it up

Throw it all at me I can shrug it off

There’s one thing that I don’t understand

You keep on telling me I ain’t your kind of man

 

Ain’t I rough enough

Oh ain’t I tough enough

Ain’t I rich enough

In love enough ooh ooh please

 

I’ll never be your beast of burden

I’ll never be your beast of burden

Never, never, never, never, never, never, never be

 

I’ll never be your beast of burden

I’ve walked for miles and my feet are hurtin

All I want is you to make love to me

 

I don’t need no beast of burden

I need no fussing, I need no nursing

Never, never, never, never, never, never, never be

 

 

Brown sugar

Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields

Sold in the market down in New Orleans

Scarred old slaver knows he’s doing allright

Hear him whip the women just around midnight

 

Brown sugar how come you taste so good

Brown sugar just like a young girl should- ah hum oh..

Woo!

 

Drums beating, cold English blood runs hot

Lady of the house wonderin’ where it’s gonna stop

House boy knows that he’s doing alright

You shoulda heard him just around midnight

 

Brown sugar how come you taste so good, now?

Brown sugar just like a young girl should, now – yeah!

 

Ah, get it on brown sugar, how come you taste so good, babe?

Ah, got me feelin’ now for brown sugar, just like a black girl should yeah

And all here boyfriends were sweet sixteen

You shoulda heard me just around midnight

 

Brown sugar how come you taste so good, babe?

Ah, brown sugar just like a young girl should, yeah

Don’t Stop

Well you bit my lip and drew first blood

And warmed my cold, cold heart

And your wrote your name right on my back

Boy your nails were sharp

 

Don’t stop

Honey don’t stop

Don’t stop

Baby don’t stop

 

Well I love your screams of passion

In the long hot summer night

But you pepper me with poison darts

And twisted in your knife

 

Don’t stop

Honey don’t stop

Don’t stop

Baby don’t stop

 

Well the only thing I ask of you

Is to hand me back some pride

Don’t you dump me on some dusty street

And hang me out to dry

 

Ah, Don’t stop

Honey don’t stop

Baby don’t stop

Baby don’t stop

Ah Honey

 

I’m losing you

I know your heart is miles away

There’s a whisper there where once there was a storm

And all that’s left is that image that I’ll find a way

And some memories have tattered as they’ve torn

 

Don’t stop

Don’t stop

Baby don’t stop

Baby don’t stop

Honey Honey (don’t stop)

Baby don’t stop

Baby don’t stop

Come on honey don’t stop

Play on baby

Baby baby don’t stop

Ah honey don’t stop

Don’t ya stop

 

I know I got ya some picture that I filed away

Honey don’t stop

Don’t you stop

 

 

Doo

The police in New York City

They chased a boy right through the park

And in a case of mistaken identity

They put a bullet through his heart

 

Heartbreaker with your forty four

I wanna tear your world apart

You heartbreaker with your forty four

I wanna tear your world a part

 

A ten year old girl on a street corner

Sticking needles in her arm

She died in the dirt of an alleyway

Her mother said she had no chance, no chance

 

Heartbreaker, heartbreaker

She stuck the pins right in her heart

Heartbreaker, pain maker

Stole the love right out of you heart

 

Heartbreaker, heartbreaker

You stole the love right out of my heart

Heartbreaker, heartbreaker

I wanna tear your world apart

 

Doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo

 

 

Doom and Gloom

I had a dream last night

I was piloting a plane

And all the passengers were drunk and insane

I crash landed in a Louisiana swamp

Shot up a horde of zombies

But I come out on top

What’s it all about?

Guess it just reflects my mood

Sitting in the dirt

Feeling kind of hurt

 

All I hear is doom and gloom

All is darkness in my room

And through the light your face I see

Baby take a chance

Baby won’t you dance with me

 

Lost all the treasure in an overseas war

It just goes to show you don’t get what you pay for

Battle to the rich and you worry about the poor

Put my feet up on the couch

And lock all the doors

Whats that funky noise?

It’s the tightening of the screws

Sitting in the dirt

Feeling kind of hurt

 

All I hear is doom and gloom

But when those drums go boom boom boom

And through the night your face I see

Baby take a chance

Baby won’t you dance with me

Yeah

Baby won’t you dance with me

Ah yeah

 

Fracking deep for oil

But there’s nothing in the sump

There’s kids all picking

At the garbage dump

I’m running out of water

So I’d better prime the pump

I’m trying to stay sober

But I end up drunk

 

We’ll be eating dirt

Living on the side of the road

There’s some food for thought

Kind of make your head explode

Feeling kind of hurt

Yeah

 

But all I hear is doom and gloom

And all is darkness in my room

And through the night your face I see

Baby take a chance

Baby Won’t you dance with me

Yeah Sitting in the dirt

Yeah

Baby won’t you dance with me

I’m feeling kind of hurt

Baby won’t you dance with me

Yeah

Come on

Baby won’t you dance with me

I’m sitting in the dirt

Baby won’t you dance with me

 

Emotional Rescue

Is there nothing I can say

Nothing I can do

To change your mind

I’m so in love with you

You’re too deep in

You can’t get out

You’re just a poor girl in a rich man’s house

Yeah, baby, I’m crying over you

 

Don’t you know promises were never made to keep?

Just like the night, dissolve in sleep

I’ll be your savior, steadfast and true

I’ll come to your emotional rescue

I’ll come to your emotional rescue

 

Yeah, the other night, crying

Crying baby, yeah I’m crying

Yeah I’m like a child baby

I’m like a child baby

Child yeah, I’m like a child, like a child

Like a child

 

You think you’re one of a special breed

You think that you’re his pet Pekinese

I’ll be your savior, steadfast and true

I’ll come to your emotional rescue

I’ll come to your emotional rescue

 

I was dreaming last night

Last night I was dreaming

How you’d be mine, but I was crying

Like a child, yeah, I was crying

Crying like a child

You will be mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, all mine

You could be mine, could be mine

Be mine, all mine.

 

I come to you, so silent in the night

So stealthy, so animal quiet

I’ll be your savior, steadfast and true

I’ll come to your emotional rescue

I’ll come to your emotional rescue

 

Yeah, you should be mine, mine, whew

Yes, you could be mine

Tonight and every night

I will be your knight in shining armour

Coming to your emotional rescue

You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine

You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine

I will be your knight in shining armour

Riding across the desert with a fine Arab charger

 

 

Fool to cry

When I come home, baby

And I’ve been working all night long

I put my daughter on my knee

And she say, "Daddy what’s wrong?"

I put my head on her shoulder

She whisper in my ear so sweet

You know what she says?

She say, "Oo, Daddy, you’re a fool to cry

You’re a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why."

You know makes me wonder why

She say, Oo-oo oo Daddy, you’re a fool to cry

Even my friends say to me

Sometimes, and make out like I don’t understand them

You know what they say?

They say, "Oo, Daddy, you’re a fool to cry

You’re a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why"

 

I got a woman, and she live in a poor part of town

And I go see her sometimes

And we make love so fine

I put her head on my shoulder

She says, "Tell me all your troubles."

You know what she says?

She say "Oo Daddy, you’re a fool to cry

You’re a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why,"

You know makes me wonder why

She say, "Oo-oo Daddy, you’re a fool to cry."

 

Even my friends say to me

Sometimes, and make out like I don’t understand them

You know what they say?

The say, "Oo, Daddy, you’re a fool to cry

You’re a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why"

 

Vocal Ad lib:

I’m a fool, baby

I’m a fool, baby

I’m a certified fool

I want to tell ya, gotta tell ya baby

I’m a fool, baby

Certified fool, for ya, mama, come on

I’m a fool

I’m a fool

I’m a fool

 

 

Get off of my cloud

I live in an apartment on the ninety-ninth floor

of my block

And I sit at home looking out the window

Imagining the world has stopped

Then in flies a guy who’s all dressed up

like a Union Jack

And says, I’ve won five pounds if I have his

kind of detergent pack

 

I says, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Don’t hang around ’cause two’s a crowd

On my cloud, baby

 

The telephone is ringing

I say, "Hi, it’s me. Who is there on the line ?"

A voice says, "Hi, hello, how are you ?"

Well, I guess I’m doin’ fine

He says, "It’s three a.m., there’s too much noise

Don’t you people ever wanna go to bed ?

Just ’cause you feel so good, do you have

to drive me out of my head ?"

 

I says, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Don’t hang around ’cause two’s a crowd

On my cloud, baby

 

I was sick and tired, fed up with this

And decided to take a drive downtown

It was so very queit and peaceful

There was nobody, not a soul around

I laid myself out, I was so tired

And I started to dream

In the morning the parking tickets were just

like a flag stuck on my window screen

I says, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Don’t hang around ’cause two’s a crowd

"On my cloud, baby"

I says, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud

Don’t hang around ’cause two’s a crowd

Hate in the shadow, and love in your shadowy life

You take your choice at this time

The brave old world or the slide to the depths of decline

 

 

Heart Of Stone

There’s been so many girls that I’ve known,

I’ve made so many cry, and still I wonder why,

Here comes a little girl, I see her walkin’ down the street,

She’s all by herself, I try to knock her off her feet,

‘Cause you’ll never break, never break, never break, never break,

This heart of stone, oh no, no, this heart of stone darlin’.

 

What’s different about her I don’t really know,

No matter how I try, I just can’t make her cry.

 

Instrumental Break

 

‘Cause you’ll never break, never break, never break, never break,

This heart of stone, oh no, no, this heart of stone darlin’.

 

Don’t keep on lookin’ that same old way,

If you try actin’ sad, you’ll only make me glad

Better listen little girl, If you goin’ walkin’ down the street

I ain’t got no love, I ain’t the kind to meet

‘Cause you’ll never break, never break, never break, never break,

This heart of stone, oh no, no, this heart of stone darlin

 

 

Honky Tonk Women

I met a gin-soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis

She tried to take me upstairs for a ride

She had to heave me right across shoulder

‘Cause I just can’t seem to drink you off my mind

 

It’s the Honky Tonk Women

Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

 

I laid a divorc?e in New York City

I had to put up some kind of a fight

The lady then she covered me with roses

She blew my nose and then she blew my mind

 

It’s the Honky Tonk Women

Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

It’s the Honky Tonk Women

Gimme, gimme…

Alright!

 

It’s the Honky Tonk Women

Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

I Can’t Get No Satisfaction

I can’t get no satisfaction, I can’t get no satisfaction

‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can’t get no, I can’t get no

 

When I’m drivin’ in my car, and the man come on the radio

He’s tellin’ me more and more about some useless information

Supposed to fire my imagination

 

I can’t get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey

That’s what I say

I can’t get no satisfaction, I can’t get no satisfaction

‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can’t get no, I can’t get no

 

When I’m watchin’ my TV and a man comes on and tell me

How white my shirts can be

But, he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke

The same cigarettes as me

 

I can’t get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey

That’s what I say

I can’t get no satisfaction, I can’t get no satisfaction

‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

I can’t get no, I can’t get no

 

When I’m ridin’ round the world

And I’m doin’ this and I’m signin’ that

And I’m tryin’ to make some girl, who tells me

Baby, better come back maybe next week

‘Cause you see I’m on a losing streak

I can’t get no. Oh, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey

That’s what I say. I can’t get no, I can’t get no

I can’t get no satisfaction, no satisfaction

No satisfaction, no satisfaction

I don’t want you be no slave

I don’t want you work all day

I don’t want ’cause I’m sad and blue

I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

I don’t want you cook my bread

I don’t want you make my bed

I don’t want your money too

I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you

 

Well I can tell by the way that you twitch and walk

See by the way that you baby talk

Know by the way that you treat your man

I can love you, baby, till the night train

 

I don’t want you wash my clothes

I don’t want you leave the home

I don’t want ’cause I’m sad and blue

I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

It’s all over now

Well, baby used to stay out all night long

She made me cry, she done me wrong

She hurt my eyes open, that’s no lie

Tables turn and now her turn to cry

 

Because I used to love her, but it’s all over now

Because I used to love her, but it’s all over now

 

Well, she used to run around with every man in town

She spent all my money, playing her high class game

She put me out, it was a pity how I cried

Tables turn and now her turn to cry

 

Because I used to love her, but it’s all over now

Because I used to love her, but it’s all over now

 

Well, I used to walk in the morning, get my breakfast in bed

When I’d gotten worried she’d ease my aching head

But now she’s here and there, with every man in town

Still trying to take me for that same old clown

 

Because I used to love her, but it’s all over now

Because I used to love her, but it’s all over now

Because I used to love her, but it’s all over now

Because I used to love her, but it’s all over now

 

 

It’s only Rock n Roll

If I could stick my pen in my heart

I would spill it all over the stage

Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya

Would you think the boy is strange? Ain’t he strange?

If I could win ya, if I could sing ya

A love song so divine

Would it be enough for your cheating heart

If I broke down and cried? If I cried?

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it

I know it’s only rock’n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do

Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it

I said can’t you see that this old boy has been lonely?

 

If I could stick a knife in my heart

Suicide right on stage

Would it be enough for your teenage lust

Would it help to ease the pain? Ease your brain?

If I could dig down deep in my heart

Feelings would flood on the page

Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya

Would ya think the boy’s insane? He’s insane

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it

I said I know it’s only rock’n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do

Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it

I said can’t you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

 

And do ya think that you’re the only girl around?

I bet you think that you’re the only woman in town

 

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do

Oh, well, I like it, I like it. I like it

 

 

Jumpin Jack Flash

Watch it

I was born in a crossfire hurricane

And I howled at my ma in the drivin’ rain

But it’s all right now

In fact it’s a gas

But it’s all right

I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash

It’s a gas, gas, gas

 

I was raised by a toothless bearded hag

I was schooled with a strap right across my back

But it’s all right now

In fact it’s a gas

But it’s all right

I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash it’s a gas, gas, gas, gas

 

I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead

I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled

I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread

I was crowned with a spike right through my head

But it’s all right

In fact it’s a gas

But it’s all right

I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas, gas, gas

Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas

Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas

Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas

 

 

Lady Jane

My sweet lady Jane

When I see you again

Your servant am I

And will humbly remain

Just heed this plea, my love

On bended knee my love

I pledge myself to lady Jane

 

My dear lady Anne

I’ve done what I can

I must take my leave

For promised am I

The play is run, my love

Your time has come, my love

I pledge my soul to lady Jane

 

Oh, my sweet Marie

I wait at your cue

The sands have run out

For your lady and me

When love is high, my love

Wedlock is nigh, my love

Life is secure with lady Jane

 

 

Last Time

I’ve told you once and l’ve told you twice

You’d better listen to my advice

You don’t try very hard to please me

With what you know it should be easy

 

Well this could be the last time

This could be the last time

Maybe the last time

I don’t know

 

I’m sorry girl but I can’t stay

Feeling like I do to-day

Staying here is too much sorrow

Guess I’ll feel the same tomorrow

 

Well this could be the last time

This could be the last time

Maybe the last time

I don’t know

Oh no

 

Well this could be the last time

This could be the last time

Maybe the last time

I don’t know

Oh no

 

I’ve told you once and I’ve told you twice

Someone’ll have to pay the price

Here’s the chance to change your mind

I’ll be gone a long long time

 

Well this could bethe last time

This could be the last time

Maybe the last time

I don’t know

Oh no

 

 

Like a Rolling Stone

 (Bob Dylan)

 

Once upon a time you dressed so fine

You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?

People’d call, say "Beware doll, you’re bound to fall"

You thought they were all kiddin’ you

You used to laugh about

Everybody that was hangin’ out

Now you don’t seem so proud

Now you don’t talk so loud

About having to be scrounging for your next meal

 

How does it feel

How does it feel

To be without a home

Like a complete unknown

Like a rolling stone?

 

You’ve gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely

But you know you only used to get juiced in it

And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street

And now you find out you’re gonna have to get used to it

 

You said you’d never compromise

With the mystery tramp, but now you realize

He’s not selling any alibis

As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes

And ask him do you want to make a deal?

 

How does it feel

How does it feel

To be on your own

With no direction home

Like a complete unknown

Like a rolling stone?

 

You never turned around to see the frowns

on the jugglers and the cowns

When they all come down and did tricks for you

 

You never understood that it ain’t no good

You shouldn’t let other people get yourkicks for you

 

You used to ride on chrome horse with your diplomat

Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat

Ain’t it hard when you discover that

He really wasn’t where it’s at

After he took from you everything he could steal

 

How does it feel

How does it feel

To be on your own

With no direction home

Like a complete unknown

Like a rolling stone?

 

Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people

They’re drinkin’, thinkin’ that they got it made

Exchanging all kinds of precious gifts and things

But you’d better lift your diamond ring, you’d better pawn it babe

 

You used to be so amused

At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used

Go to him now, he calls you, you can’t refuse

When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose

You’re invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal

 

How does it feel

How does it feel

To be on your own

With no direction home

Like a complete unknown

Like a rolling stone?

 

 

Midnight rambler

Did you hear about the midnight rambler

Everybody got to go

Did you hear about the midnight rambler

The one that shut the kitchen door

He don’t give you a hoot of warning

Wrapped up in a black cat cloak

He don’t go in the light of the morning

He split the time the cock’rel crows

 

Talkin’ about the midnight gambler

The one you never seen before

Talkin’ about the midnight gambler

Did you see him jump the garden wall

Sighin’ down the wind so sadly

Listen and you’ll hear him moan

Well, talkin’ about the midnight gambler

Everybody got to go

 

Did you hear about the midnight rambler

Well, honey, it’s no rock ‘n’ roll show

Well, I’m talkin’ about the midnight gambler

Yeah, the one you never seen before

 

Oh don’t do that, oh don’t do that, oh don’t do that

Don’t you do that, don’t you do that (repeat)

Oh don’t do that, oh don’t do that (repeat)

 

Well you heard about the Boston…

It’s not one of those

Well, talkin’ ’bout the midnight…sh…

The one that closed the bedroom door

I’m called the hit-and-run raper in anger

The knife-sharpened tippie-toe…

Or just the shoot ’em dead, brainbell jangler

You know, the one you never seen before

 

So if you ever meet the midnight rambler

Coming down your marble hall

Well he’s pouncing like proud black panther

Well, you can say I, I told you so!

Well, don’t you listen for the midnight rambler

Play it easy, as you go

I’m gonna smash down all your plate glass windows

Put a fist, put a fist through your steel-plated door!

 

Did you hear about the midnight rambler

He’ll leave his footprints up and down your hall

And did you hear about the midnight gambler

And did you see me make my midnight call

 

And if you ever catch the midnight rambler

I’ll steal your mistress from under your nose

I’ll go easy with your cold fanged anger

I’ll stick my knife right down your throat, baby

And it hurts!

 

 

Miss You

I’ve been holding out so long

I’ve been sleeping all alone

Lord I miss you

I’ve been hanging on the phone

I’ve been sleeping all alone

I want to kiss you

 

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh

 

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh oooh

 

Well, I’ve been haunted in my sleep

You’ve been staring in my dreams

Lord I miss you

I’ve been waiting in the hall

Been waiting on your call

When the phone rings

It’s just some friends of mine that say

"Hey, what’s the matter man?

We’re gonna come around at twelve

With some Puerto Rican girls that are just dyin’ to meet you

We’re gonna bring a case of wine

Hey, let’s go mess and fool around

You know, like we used to"

 

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

 

Oh, everybody waits so long

Oh, baby why you wait so long

Won’t you come on! Come on!

 

I’ve been walking Central Park

Singing after dark

People think I’m crazy

I’ve been stumbling on my feet

Shuffling through the street

Asking people, "What’s the matter with you boy?"

 

Sometimes I want to say to myself

Sometimes I say

 

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh

 

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

I won’t miss you child

 

I guess I’m lying to myself

It’s just you and no one else

Lord, I won’t miss you child

You’ve been blotting out my mind

Fooling on my time

No, I won’t miss you, baby, yeah

 

Lord, I miss you child

 

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

 

Lord, I miss you child

 

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

 

Lord, I miss you child

 

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

 

 

Mixed Emotions

Button your lip baby

Button your coat

Let’s go out dancing

Go for the throat

Let’s bury the hatchet

Wipe out the past

Mae love together

Stay on the path

 

You’re not the only one

With mixed emotions

You’re not the only ship

Adrift on this ocean

 

This coming and going

Is driving me nuts

This to-ing and fro-ing

Is hurting my guts

So get off the fence

It’s creasing your butt

LIfe is a party

Let’s get out and strut

 

You’re not the only one

That’s feeling lonesome

You’re not the only one

With mixed emotions

 

You’re not the only one

You’re not the only one

You’re not the only one

You’re not the only one

 

Let’s grab the world

By the scruff of the neck

And drink it down deeply

Let’s love it to death

So button your lip

And button your coat

Let’s go out dancing

Let’s rock ‘n’ roll

 

You’re not the only one

With mixed emotions

You’re not the only ship

Adrift on this ocean

You’re not the only one

That’s feeling lonesome

You’re not the only one

With mixed emotions

 

 

Mothers Little Helper

What a drag it is getting old.

 

"Kids are different today,"

I hear ev’ry mother say

Mother needs something today to calm her down

And though she’s not really ill

There’s a little yellow pill

She goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day.

 

"Things are different today,"

I hear ev’ry mother say

Cooking fresh food for a husband’s just a drag

So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak

And goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And two help her on her way, get her through her busy day.

 

Doctor, please, some more of these

Outside the door, she took four more

What a drag it is getting old.

 

"Men just aren’t the same today,"

I hear ev’ry mother say

They just don’t appreciate that you get tired

They’re so hard to satisfy. You can tranquilise your mind

So go running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And four help you through the night, help to minimise your plight.

 

Doctor,plese, some more of these

Outside the door, she took four more

What a drag it is getting old.

 

Life’s just much too hard today,"

I hear ev’ry mother say

The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore

And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose

No more running to the shelter of a mother’s little helper

They just helped you on your way through your busy dying day

 

 

Not fade away

I’m gonna tell you how it’s gonna be

You’re gonna give your love to me

I’m gonna love you night and day

Well love is love and not fade away

Well love is love and not fade away

 

My love bigger than a Cadillac

I try to show it and you’re drivin’ me back

Your love for me has got to be real

For you to know just how I feel

Love is real and not fade away

Well love is real and not fade away

 

I’m gonna tell you how it’s gonna be

You’re gonna give your love to me

Love to last more than one day

Well love is love and not fade away

Well love is love and not fade away

Well love is love and not fade away

Love, love is love and not fade away

Not fade away

Not fade away

 

Paint It Black

I see a red door and I want it painted black

No colours anymore, I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes

I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

 

I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black

With flowers and my love, both never to come back

I see people turn their heads and quickly look away

Like a newborn baby it just happens ev’ryday

 

I look inside myself and see my heart is black

I see my red door and I must have it painted black

Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts

It’s not easy facing up when your whole world is black

 

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue

I could not forsee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the setting sun

My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

 

I see a red door and I want it painted black

No colours anymore I want them to turn back

I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes

I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

 

I wanna see your face painted black, black as night, black as coal

Don’t wanna see the sun, flying high in the sky

I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black, yea

 

 

Rock and a hard place

The fields of Eden

Are full of trash

And if we beg and we borrow and steal

We’ll never get it back

People are hungry

They crowd around

And the city gets bigger as the country comes begging to town

 

Stuck between a rock

And a hard place

Between a rock and a hard place

 

This talk of freedom

And human rights

Meaans bullying and private wars and chucking all the dust into our eyes

And peasant people

Poorer than dirt

Who are caught in the crossfire with nothing to lose but their shirts

 

Stuck between a rock

And a hard place

Between a rock and a hard place

You’d better stop put on a kind face

Between a rock and a hard place

 

We’re in the same boat

On the same sea

And we’re sailing south

On the same breeze

Guiding dream churches

With silver spires

And our rogue children

Are playing loaded dice

 

Between a rock and a hard place

You’d better stop

 

Give me truth now

Don’t want no sham

I’d be hung drawn and quartered for a sheep just as well as a lamb

 

Stuck between a rock

And a hard place

Between a rock and a hard place

You’d better stop put on a kind face

Can’t you see what you’ve done to me

 

 

Route 66

Well if you ever plan to motor west

Just take my way that’s the highway that’s the best

Get your kicks on Route 66

 

Well it winds from Chicago to L.A.

More than 2000 miles all the way

Get your kicks on Route 66

 

Well goes from St. Louie down to Missouri

Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty

You’ll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico

Flagstaff, Arizonadon’t forget Winona

Kingman, Barstow, San Bernadino

 

Would you get hip to this kindly tip

And go take that Californiatrip

Get your kicks on Route 66

Ruby Tuesday

She would never say where she came from

Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone

While the sun is bright

Or in the darkest night

No one knows, she comes and goes

 

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you?

When you change with every new day

Still I’m gonna miss you

 

Don’t question why she needs to be so free

She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be

She just can’t be chained

To a life where nothing’s gained

And nothing’s lost, at such a cost

 

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you?

When you change with every new day

Still I’m gonna miss you

 

"There’s no time to lose", I heard her say

Catch your dreams before they slip away

Dying all the time

Lose your dreams and you will lose your mind

Ain’t life unkind?

 

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you?

When you change with every new day

Still I’m gonna miss you

 

 

Shattered

Shattered, shattered

Love and hope and sex and dreams

Are still surviving on the street

Look at me — I’m in tatters!

I’m a shattered

Shattered

 

Friends are so alarming

And my lover’s never charming

Life’s just a cocktail party – on the street

Big Apple

People dressed in plastic bags

Directing traffic –

Some kind of fashion

Shattered

 

Laughter, joy, and loneliness and sex and sex and sex and sex

Look at me – I’m in tatters I ‘m a shattered

Shattered

 

All this chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter ’bout

Shmatta, shmatta, shmatta — I can’t give it away on 7th Avenue

This town’s been wearing tatters (shattered, shattered)

Work and work for love and sex

Ain’t you hungry for success, success, success, success

Does it matter? (Shattered) Does it matter?

I’m shattered. Shattered.

 

Ahhh, look at me – I’m a shattered

I’m a shattered

Look at me- I’m a shattered, yeah

 

Pride and joy and greed and sex

That’s what makes our town the best

Pride and joy and dirty dreams and still surviving on the street

and look at me – i’m in tatters, yeah

I’ve been battered, what does it matter

does it matter, uh-huh

does it matter, uh-huh, I’m a shattered

 

Don’t you know the crime rate is going up, up, up, up, up,

To live in this town you must be tough, tough, tough, tough, tough!

You got rats on the west side

bed bugs uptown

What a mess this town’s in tatters I’ve been shattered

My brain’s been battered – splattered – all over Manhattan

 

Uh-huh, This town’s full of money grabbers

Go ahead-Bite the Big Apple, don’t mind the maggots, huh

Shadoobie, My brain’s been battered

My friends they come around they

Flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter

Pile it up, pile it high on the platter

 

 

She’s a rainbow

She comes in colors ev’rywhere;

She combs her hair

She’s like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

 

She comes in colors ev’rywhere;

She combs her hair

She’s like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

 

Have you seen her dressed in blue?

See the sky in front of you

And her face is lik a sail

Speck of white so fair and pale

Have you seen a lady fairer?

 

She comes in colors ev’rywhere;

She combs her hair

She’s like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

 

Have you seen her all in gold?

Like a queen in days of old

She shoots her colors all around

Like a sunset going down

Have you seen a lady fairer?

 

She comes in colors ev’rywhere;

She combs her hair

She’s like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

 

She’s like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

 

 

She’s so cold

I’m so hot for her, I’m so hot for her

I’m so hot for her and she’s so cold

I’m so hot for her, I’m on fire for her

I’m so hot for her and she’s so cold

 

I’m the burning bush, I’m the burning fire

I’m the bleeding volcano

I’m so hot for her, I’m so hot for her

I’m so hot for her and she’s so cold

 

Yeah, I tried re-wiring her, tried re-firing her

I think her engine is permanently stalled

She’s so cold she’s so cold

She’s so cold cold cold

Like a tombstone

She’s so cold, she’s so cold

she’s so cold cold cold like an ice cream cone

She’s so cold she’s so cold

I dare not touch her my hand just froze

 

Yeah, I’m so hot for hot for her, I’m so hot for her

I’m so hot for her and even so

Put your hand on the heat, put your hand on the heat

Aw C’mon baby, let’s go

 

She’s so cold, she’s so cold, cold, she’s so c-c-c-old

But she’s beautiful, though

 

Yeah, she’s so cold

 

She’s so cold, she’s so cold

She was born in an arctic zone

She’s so cold she’s so cold, cold, cold

I dare not touch her my hand just froze

 

She’s so cold, she’s so goddamn cold she’s so

Cold cold cold she’s so cold

 

Who would believe you were a beauty indeed

When the days get shorter and the nights get long

Lie awake when the rain comes

Nobody will know, when you’re old

When you’re old, nobody will know

that you was a beauty, a sweet sweet beauty

A sweet sweet beauty, but stone stone cold

 

You’re so cold, you’re so cold, cold, cold

You’re so cold, you’re so cold

 

I’m so hot for you, i’m so hot for you

I’m so hot for you and you’re so cold

 

I’m the burning bush, I’m the burning fire

I’m the bleeding volcano

 

 

Sittin’ on a Fence

Since I was young I’ve been very hard to please

And I don’t know wrong from right

But there is one thing I could never understand

Some of the sick things that a girl does to a man, so

 

I’m just sittin’ on a fence

You can say i got no sense

Trying to make up my mind

Really is too horrifying

So I’m sittin’ on a fence

 

All of my friends at school grew up and settled down

And they mortgaged up their lives

One things not said too much, but I think it’s true

They just get married cause there’s nothing else to do, so

 

I’m just sittin’ on a fence

You can say i got no sense

Trying to make up my mind

Really is too horrifying

So I’m sittin’ on a fence

 

I’m still sittin’ on a fence

You can say I got no sense

Trying to make up my mind

Really is too horrifying

So I’m sittin’ on a fence

 

The day can come when you get old and sick and tired of life

You just never realize

Maybe the choice you made wasn’t really right

But you go out and you don’t come back at night, so

 

I’m just sittin’ on a fence

You can say i got no sense

Trying to make up my mind

Really is too horrifying

So I’m sittin’ on a fence

 

Start me up

If you start me up

If you start me up I’ll never stop

If you start me up

If you start me up I’ll never stop

I’ve been running hot

You got me ticking gonna blow my top

If you start me up

If you start me up I’ll never stop

 

You make a grown man cry

Spread out the oil, the gasoline

I walk smooth, ride in a mean, mean machine

Start it up

 

If you start it up

Kick on the starter give it all you got, you got, you got

I can’t compete with the riders in the other heats

If you rough it up

If you like it you can slide it up, slide it up

 

Don’t make a grown man cry

My eyes dilate, my lips go green

My hands are greasy

She’s a mean, mean machine

Start it up

 

If start me up

Give it all you got

You got to never, never, never stop

Never, never

Slide it up

 

You make a grown man cry

Ride like the wind at double speed

I’ll take you places that you’ve never, never seen

Start it up

Love the day when we will never stop, never stop

Never stop, never stop

Tough me up

Never stop, never stop, never stop

 

You, you, you make a grown man cry

You, you make a dead man cum

You, you make a dead man cum

 

 

Street Fighting Man

Ev’rywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy

‘Cause summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy

Well then what can a poor boy do

Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band

‘Cause in sleepy London town

There’s just no place for a street fighting man

No!

 

Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution

‘Cause where I live the game to play is compromise solution

Well then what can a poor boy do

Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band

‘Cause in sleepy London town

There’s just no place for a street fighting man

No!

Get down

 

Hey! Said my name is called disturbance

I’ll shout and scream, I’ll kill the king, I’ll rail at all his servants

Well, what can a poor boy do

Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band

‘Cause in sleepy London town

There’s just no place for a street fighting man

No

Get down

 

 

Sympathy For The Devil

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 faith

And I was ’round when Jesus Christ, Had his moment of doubt and pain

Made damn sure that Pilate, Washed his hands and sealed his fate

 

CHORUS:       Pleased to meet you Hope you guess my name

But what’s puzzling you Is the nature of my game

 

I stuck around St. Petersberg, When I saw it was a time for a change

Killed the Czar and his ministers, Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank, Held a general’s rank, When the Blitzkrieg raged, And the bodies stank

 

CHORUS

 

I watched with glee, While your kings and queens

Fought for ten decades, For the Gods they made

I shouted out, "Who killed the Kennedys?"

When after all, It was you and me

Let me please introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste

And I laid traps for troubadors, Who get killed before they reached Bombay

 

CHORUS

 

Just as every cop is a criminal, And all the sinners Saints

As heads is tails, Just call me Lucifer, ‘Cause I’m in need of some restraint

So if you meet me, Have some courtesy, Have some sympathy, and some taste

Use all your well-learned politesse, Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, um yeah

 

CHORUS

 

Woo, who, Oh yeah, get on down, Oh yeah, Oh yeah!

Tell me baby, what’s my name

Tell me honey, baby guess my name

Tell me baby, what’s my name

Tell you one time, you’re to blame

Ooo, who, Ooo, who, Ooo, who, Ooo, who, who, Ooo, who, who, Ooo, who, who, Ooo, who, who

What’s my name

Tell me, baby, what’s my name

Tell me, sweetie, what’s my name

Ooo, who, who Ooo, who, Ooo, who, Ooo, who, Ooo, who, who, Ooo, who, who, Ooo, who, who

 

 

Time is on my side

Time is on my side, yes it is

Time is on my side, yes it is

 

Now you always say

That you want to be free

But you’ll come running back (said you would baby)

You’ll come running back (I said so many times before)

You’ll come running back to me

 

Oh, time is on my side, yes it is

Time is on my side, yes it is

 

You’re searching for good times

But just wait and see

You’ll come running back (I won’t have to worry no more)

You’ll come running back (spend the rest of my life with you, baby)

You’ll come running back to me

 

Go ahead, go ahead and light up the town

And baby, do everything your heart desires

Remember, I’ll always be around

And I know, I know

Like I told you so many times before

You’re gonna come back, baby

‘Cause I know

You’re gonna come back knocking

Yeah, knocking right on my door

Yes, yes!

 

Well, time is on my side, yes it is

Time is on my side, yes it is

 

‘Cause I got the real love

The kind that you need

You’ll come running back (said you would, baby)

You’ll come running back (I always said you would)

You’ll come running back, to me

Yes time, time, time is on my side, yes it is

Time, time, time is on my side, yes it is

Oh, time, time, time is on my side, yes it is

I said, time, time, time is on my side, yes it is

Oh, time, time, time is on my side

Yeah, time, time, time is on my side

 

 

Undercover of the night

Hear the screams of Center 42

Loud enough to bust your brains out

The opposition’s tongue is cut in two

Keep off the street ’cause you’re in danger

 

One hundred thousand disparus

Lost in the jails in South America

Cuddle up baby

Cuddle up tight

Cuddle up baby

Keep it all out of sight

Undercover

Keep it all out of sight

Undercover of the night

 

The sex police are out there on the streets

Make sure the pass laws are not broken

The race militia has got itchy fingers

All the way from New York back to Africa

 

Cuddle up baby

Keep it all out of sight

Cuddle up baby

Sleep with all out of sight

Cuddle up baby

Keep it all out of sight

Undercover

Undercover

Undercover

Keep it all out of sight

Undercover of the night

 

All the young men they’ve been rounded up

And sent to camps back in the jungle

And people whisper people double-talk

And once proud fathers act so humble

All the young girls they have got the blues

They’re heading on back to Center 42

 

Keep it undercover

Keep it all out of sight

Keep it undercover

Keep it all out of sight

Undercover

Keep it all out of sight

Undercover

Keep it all out of sight

Undercover of the night

 

Down in the bars the girls are painted blue

Done up in lace, done up in rubber

The John’s are jerky little G.I. Joe’s

On R&R from Cuba and Russia

The smell of sex, the smell of suicide

All these things I can’t keep inside

 

Undercover

Keep it all out of sight

Undercover of the night

 

Undercover of the night

Undercover of the night

 

Undercover

Undercover

Undercover of the night

 

 

Under my thumb

Under my thumb

The girl who once had me down

Under my thumb

The girl who once pushed me around

 

It’s down to me

The difference in the clothes she wears

Down to me, the change has come,

She’s under my thumb

 

Ain’t it the truth babe?

 

Under my thumb

The squirmin’ dog who’s just had her day

Under my thumb

A girl who has just changed her ways

 

It’s down to me, yes it is

The way she does just what she’s told

Down to me, the change has come

She’s under my thumb

Ah, ah, say it’s alright

 

Under my thumb

A siamese cat of a girl

Under my thumb

She’s the sweetest, hmmm, pet in the world

 

It’s down to me

The way she talks when she’s spoken to

Down to me, the change has come,

She’s under my thumb

Ah, take it easy babe

Yeah

 

It’s down to me, oh yeah

The way she talks when she’s spoken to

Down to me, the change has come,

She’s under my thumb

Yeah, it feels alright

 

Under my thumb

Her eyes are just kept to herself

Under my thumb, well I

I can still look at someone else

 

It’s down to me, oh that’s what I said

The way she talks when she’s spoken to

Down to me, the change has come,

She’s under my thumb

Say, it’s alright.

 

Say it’s all…

Say it’s all…

 

Take it easy babe

Take it easy babe

Feels alright

Take it, take it easy babe.

 

 

Waiting on a friend

Watching girls go passing by

It ain’t the latest thing

I’m just standing in a doorway

I’m just trying to make some sense

Out of these girls passing by

The tales they tell of men

I’m not waiting on a lady

I’m just waiting on a friend

Mmmm a smile relieves a heart that grieves

Remember what I said

I’m not waiting on a lady

I’m just waiting on a friend

 

I’m just waiting on a friend

Just waiting on a friend

I’m just waiting on a friend

I’m just waiting on a friend

Just waiting on a friend

 

Don’t need a whore

don’t need no booze

Don’t need a virgin priest

But I need someone I can cry to

I need someone to protect

Oooh making love and breaking hearts

It is a game for youth

But I’m not waiting on a lady

I’m just waiting on a firend

 

I’m just waiting on a friend

Just waiting on a friend

I’m just waiting on a friend

I’m just waiting on a friend

Just waiting on a friend

 

 

Wild Horses

Childhood living is easy to do

The things you wanted I bought them for you

Graceless lady you know who I am

You know I can’t let you slide through my hands

 

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away

Wild, wild horses couldn’t drag me away

 

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain

Now you’ve decided to show me the same

No sweeping exit or offstage lines

Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away

Wild, wild horses couldn’t drag me away

I know I’ve dreamed you a sin and a lie

I have my freedom but I don’t have much time

Faith has been broken tears must be cried

Let’s do some living after we die

 

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away

Wild, wild horses we’ll ride them some day

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away

Wild, wild horses we’ll ride them some day

 

 

You can’t always get what you want

Choir:

I saw her today at a reception

A glass of wine in her hand

I knew she would meet her connection

At her feet was her footloose man

 

No, you can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

And if you try sometime you find

You get what you need

 

I saw her today at the reception

A glass of wine in her hand

I knew she was gonna meet her connection

At her feet was her footloose man

 

You can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

But if you try sometimes you might find

You get what you need

 

Oh yeah, hey hey hey, oh….

 

And I went down to the demonstration

To get my fair share of abuse

Singing, "We’re gonna vent our frustration

If we don’t we’re gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"

Sing it to me now…

 

You can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

But if you try sometimes well you just might find

You get what you need

Oh baby, yeah, yeah!

 

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore

To get your prescription filled

I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy

And man, did he look pretty ill

We decided that we would have a soda

My favorite flavor, cherry red

I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy

Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"

I said to him

 

You can’t always get what you want, no!

You can’t always get what you want (tell ya baby)

You can’t always get what you want (no)

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You get what you need

Oh yes! Woo!

 

You get what you need–yeah, oh baby!

Oh yeah!

 

I saw her today at the reception

In her glass was a bleeding man

She was practiced at the art of deception

Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands

 

You can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You just might find

You get what you need

 

You can’t always get what you want (no, no baby)

You can’t always get what you want

You can’t always get what you want

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You just might find

You get what you need, ah yes…
