all Mick Jagger lyrics



Wired All Night
You go squeeze in your dress, and go strap on your boots
I'm gonna sharpen my nails and primp up real cute
I'm gonna smoke up a storm and step into the night
I'm getting ready to burn, I'm getting ready to fly

I said a, hey, are you shooting to kill
Hey, would I tell you a lie
We'll be slamming tequilas, popping hydrogen
And lose the coils and the kinks that are wrecking my life

Give me a drink, don't be talking so much, you're a pain in the butt
How can I think when you puke up your guts, I'll be juiced on this stuff

We'll be wired all night
We hit the high life
We'll be wired all night
We hit the high life
Watch me now

You blew a jelly-face Joe, Pedro the pimp
I'm as hard as a brick, hope I never go limp
Is the earthquake shaking, is there gonna be war
Tell the National Guard to mind the grocery store

I said, hey, and I don't give a hoot
Hey, I need some earthly delights
I'll be drowning my sorrows, banging my box
'Til the sirens start singing and I'm ready to fly

Give me a drink, don't be talking so much, you're a pain in the butt
How can I think when you puke up your guts, I'll be juiced on this stuff

We'll be wired all night
We hit the high life
We'll be wired all night
We hit the high life

Give me a drink, don't be talking so much, you're a pain
in the butt
How can I think when you puke up your guts, I'll be juiced
on this stuff
I'll be kicked in the nuts

We'll be wired all night
We hit the high life
We'll be wired all night
We hit the high lifeback to top
Sweet Thing
In the beginning, when life was simple
We were at each other night and day
You were so sensual and so inventive
We said we'd stick together come what may

In the beginning, you were so brutal
You turned the heat on in the afternoon
Get so excited, get so addicted
You had me eating from your golden spoon

Now I don't wanna spoil the party
I know it goes against the grain
As the plane touched down I got movies of you
Running through my fevered brain

I really love my sweet thing, I can't give her up
I really love my sweet thing, I can't give her up
I really love my sweet thing, I can't give her up

In the beginning, when we were winning
I was your ever-present love-sick fool
You turned the heat off and left me standing
Freezing by your swimming pool

I can't give it up
I can't give it up
I can't give it up
I can't give it up

Now I don't wanna spoil the party
I know it goes against the grain
As the plane touched down, and the midnight moon
Can't just walk away

Really love my sweet thing, wanna' lick it up
Really love my sweet thing, wanna' lick it up
Really love my sweet thing, can't give it up
Really love my sweet thing, can't give it upback to top
Out of Focus
I saw a glittering moon
I saw a beautiful morning
Shining on the hill
And I grabbed the cat by the tail
The future with my finger nails
But now I live in fear

It's all out of focus
It's all, baby, so unclear
It's all out of focus
It's all, baby, so unreal

I saw towering spires, I heard beautiful chimes, I heard them peal
I saw visions of grace, I saw heavenly place, then it disappeared

Maybe I lied a little bit too much
Maybe I cried a little bit too much
I saw the future just shatter in glass

It's all out of focus
It's all, baby, so unclear
It's all out of focus
And nothing is revealed

I was walking on clouds, yeah and talking so proud,
but I did not hear
Voices singing so loud, said you're tumbling down,
to the streets of tears

It's all out of focus
It's all, baby, so unclear
It's all out of focus
It's all, baby, so unreal

Sometime I lied a little bit too hard
Sometime I cried a little bit too hard
I saw the future just vanish like glass

It's all out of focus
It's all, baby, so unclear
It's all out of focus
And nothing is revealedback to top
Don't Tear Me Up
Life is rich, but it's way too short
You make a lot of money, but you just want more
I don't need the pain right here in my heart
But I hate every minute when we're so far apart

It was love in a minute, it was love in a flash
It brings me no pleasure, just a stab in the back
It brings me no comfort, it brings me no peace
A weight on my shoulder, it's a fatal disease

So don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your picture again
And don't poison my blood
I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

Gonna finish it quick, gonna finish it clean
Don't wanna be bitter. I don't wanna be mean
I feel like we're driving down a dead-end street
I've come so far I wanna crash the car
I wanna land right on my feet

I said don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your picture again
I said don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

But I dream of you constantly, you'll be my angel of light
And in the dark rooms of sleeplessness
You'll be my lover each night

Life is a bitch, it's way too short
Unlike a politician it just can't be bought
Think about the tenderness, and think about the craziness
And if you ever wanna hate me come and
Stick a knife right in my chest

I said don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your picture again
I said don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

I said don't tear me up
I said don't tear me up
I said don't poison my blood
I don't ever wanna see your picture againback to top
Put Me in the Trash
Yeah you put me in the trash
yeah you gave me up for lost
Now I see that you're doing alright
Take a look at me and count the cost
Baby can't you see I'm short on greens
I am your long lost man, you don't recognize me

I used to load you up with cash
I used to dress you like a dream
All the fancy food, you always wolfed it down
Yeah but you never made a scene
Baby can't you see, I'm no fantasy
I am your long lost man, you don't recognize me

Standing around in the rain, with my hands froze
Looking around for small change in your window
Out in the cold once again, write out a cheque for old flames
Pity for old time sake, I'll make your heart glow

Yeah, I'm your long lost man, don't you recognize me
Gimme some money baby, I'm broke
Why don't you, why don't you dig right down in your purse
And gimme some dough
Yeah don't you remember me baby
Don't you remember all those Jean Paul Gaultier dresses
I bought you and all those tickets to the opera

What about that bright red ferrari I bought you now
And all those, and all those shoes
Yeah I know it's the recession baby, but give me some money
Yeah come on now be generous
Oh yeah alrightback to top
Use Me
My friends feel their appointed duty
They keep trying to tell me all you want to do is use me
Uh huh but my answer about all that use me stuff

I want to spread the news that if it feels this good getting used
You can keep on using me
Until you use me up
Until you use me up

My brother sit me right down and he talked to me
He told me that I ought to not let you just walk on me
Well I'm sure that he meant well, yeah but when
Our talk was through

I said brother if you only knew you'd wish you were in my shoes
You could keep on using me
Until you use me up
Until you use me up

Sometimes it's true you really do abuse me
Oh you get me in a crowd of high class people
And you act real nasty to me
I said, oh baby, baby, baby, when you love me
I can't get enough

I want to spread the news that if it feels this good getting used
You can keep on using me
Until you use me up
Until you use me upback to top
Evening Gown
People say that I'm high class
But I'm low down all the while
People think That I'm crazy
When I flash that California smile

But I can still paint the town
All the colour of your evening gown
While I'm waiting for your blonde hair
To turn grey

People say I'm a drinker
But I'm sober half the time
People say I'm a loser
But I get lucky on the side

Yeah but I can still paint the town
All the colour of your evening gown
While I'm waiting for your blonde hair
To turn grey

All my life I waited for
Someone who would show where the bliss is
All my life I waited for
Someone who would take me past the kissing

People say I'm a loner
I like to get lost in the crowds
People call me a dresser
I wear my sports clothes way too loud

Yeah but I can still paint the town
I can shake it and turn it upside down
While I'm waiting for your blonde hair
While I'm waiting for your blonde hair
While I'm waiting for your blonde hair
To turn greyback to top
Mother of a Man
See looka here, wanna see my gun
It's an Uzi and it packs a lot of punch
It sure is loud, I got it fixed
You wanna feel, you wanna touch this little bitch

I wanna testify, it's a crazy world out there
I wanna tell ya now, it's a brutal world out there

I'm just a mother of a man
I've got the stopper in my hand
Judge and jury help me please
Ain't gonna get down on my knees
Oh no, god help me now

You know my wife, she don't feel safe
Since we had a lot of trouble near our place
These kids are poor, I know it's hard
But why'd they have to do it in their own backyard

I wanna testify, it's a crazy world out there
I don't know what to tell you, it's a barbaric world out there

I'm just a mother of a man
I wanna take the witness stand
Judge and jury help me please
The sirens sound, the streets all bleed
I'm just a mother of a man
Just a mother of a man
Oh yeah, God help me now

I wanna testify, it's a crazy, crazy, crazy world out there
I wanna tell ya now that it's a barbaric world out there

I'm just a mother of a man
I wanna take the witness stand

Think about the sacrifices that I made for you
Think about the hard times that you put me through
Think about the good things that I done for you
Think about the bad things that I tried not to do

Wandering Spirit
When all the twelve Apostles try to ring me on the phone
Take a message but I won't return their call
For I have no eyes to see him and I thought I lost my way
And I know I've lost the keys to your door

And I climbed the highest mountain and I looked down on the sea
And I saw a ship a-sail to the shore
I took a passage to the East and I journeyed to the West
I made love from Battambang to Baltimore

I said, oh, am I running in a race
I said, oh, am I getting anyplace
I said, oh, can I make it

I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit, yes I am a restless soul
I'm a wandering spirit, there's no place that I can call my own

I was a glutton at the banquet and I spilt the finest wine
Trod the pyramids and ruins of Angkor
I kissed the Mona Lisa and I breakfasted with kings
And I touched the nerves of nature in the raw

I said, oh, am I running in a race
I said, oh, take that smile right off your face
I said, oh, I can't make it

I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit, no escape, no parole
I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit, there's no place that
I can call my home

I said, oh, am I running in a race
I said, oh, take that smile right off your face
I said, oh, I can't make it

I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit, looking for a place to go

I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit
I'm a wandering spirit, no escape, no parole
I'm a wandering spirit, I'm a lost and lonely soulback to top
Hang on to Me Tonight
Like a picture you came into my life
Like a picture the colours fade away
Love is fragile, you hide it from the light
It lasts forever and always stays the same

Like a movie, you swept into my life
And like a movie, the stars just fade away

Hang on to me tonight
Stay close to me all day
Hang on to me tonight
Stay close to me all day

Ah, honey, while there's youth upon your face
Ah, honey, are you tiring of the race
My cards are on the table
You can get up and walk away
Or stay

Like a movie, you swept into my life
And like a movie, the stars just fade away
All the characters are mouthing out their lines
And the love scenes are shot in shades of grey

Hang on to me tonight
Stay close to me all day
Hang on to me tonight
Stay close to me all day

Ah, baby, while there's youth upon your face
Ah, baby, don't you lose that natural grace
My cards are on the table
You can get up and walk away
Or stay

Hang on to me tonight
Stay close to me all day
Hang on to me tonight
Stay close to me all dayback to top
Angel in My Heart
Play upon your heart strings to me
I will sing a strange melody
Dance with me a magic ballet
Stay with me 'til night turns to day
Let me in your dreams

Angel in my heart
Angel in my heart

By a pool of darkening dreams
Love is slowly twisting downstream
Underneath the tortuos trees
Out into the sad, silent seas
Lock me in your arms

Angel in my heart
Angel in my heart

How can I feel, how can I feel love when you're gone
How much sin, how much can true forgiving cost
I'm in your skin, I want to win back what I've lost

How can I feel, how can I feel love when you're gone
I'm in your skin, I want to win back what I've lost

I can feel the salt on my skin
I can hear the birds on the wing
I can smell the wood on the fire
I can see the smoke of desire
Let me in your dreams

Angel in my heart
Angel in my heartback to top
Handsome Molly
I wish I was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'll set myself on a steamship
And I'll sail the ocean round

While sailing around the ocean
While sailing around the sea
I dream of Handsome Molly
Wherever she might be

Her hair's as black as raven
Her eyes as black as coal
Her teeth are like lilies
That in the morning glow

Oh, don't you remember, Molly
You gave me your right hand
You said that if you married
Well I would be your man

And now you've gone and left me
Go on with who you please
My poor heart is aching here
Lying at your ease

And I go down to the river
When everyone's asleep
I dream of handsome Molly
And sit right down and weep

I wish I was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'll set myself on a steamship
And I'll sail the ocean round

While sailing around the ocean
While sailing around the sea
I'd dream of Handsome Molly
Wherever she might beback to top
