Ruby Tuesday
(Jagger/Richards)

She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don't matter when 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 smile 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

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 smile with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you...back to top
Have You Seen Your Mother Baby, Standing In The Shadow
(Jagger/Richards)

Have you seen your mother, baby, standing in the shadow?
Have you had another, baby, standing in the shadow?
I'm glad I opened your eyes
The have-nots would have tried to freeze you in ice

Have you seen your brother, baby, standing in the shadow?
Have you had another baby, standing in the shadow?
I was just passing the time
I'm all alone, won't you give all your sympathy to mine?

Tell me a story about how you adore me
Live in the shadow, see through the shadow,
Live through the shadow, tear at the shadow
Hate in the shadow, and love in your shadowy life

Have you seen your lover, baby, standing in the shadow?
Has he had another baby, standing in the shadow?
Baby, where have you been all your life?
Talking about all the people who should try anything twice

Have you seen your mother, baby, standing in the shadow?
Have you had another baby, standing in the shadow?
You take your choice at this time
The brave old world or the slide to the depths of declineback to top
Let's Spend The Night Together
(Jagger/Richards)

My, My, My, My
Don't you worry 'bout what's on your mind (Oh my)
I'm in no hurry I can take my time (Oh my)
I'm going red and my tongue's getting tied (tongues's getting tied)
I'm off my head and my mouth's getting dry.
I'm high, But I try, try, try (Oh my)
Let's spend the night together
Now I need you more than ever
Let's spend the night together now

I feel so strong that I can't disguise (oh my)
Let's spend the night together
But I just can't apologize (oh no)
Let's spend the night together
Don't hang me up just to let me down (don't let me down)
We could have fun just groovin' around around and around
Let's spend the night together
Now I need you more than ever
Let's spend the night together

Let's spend the night together
Now I need you more than ever
You know I'm smiling baby
You need some guiding baby
Now I need you more than ever
Let's spend the night together
Let's spend the night together now

This doesn't happen to me ev'ryday (oh my)
Let's spend the night together
No excuses offered anyway (oh my)
Let's spend the night together
I'll satisfy your every need (every need)
And I now know you will satisfy me
Let's spend the night together
Now I need you more than ever
Let's spend the night together nowback to top
Lady Jane
(Jagger/Richards)

My sweeet 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 Janeback to top
Out Of Time
(Jagger/Richards)

You don't know what's going on
You've been away for far too long
You can't come back and think you are still mine
You're out of touch, my baby
My poor discarded baby
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
You are all left out
Out of there without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

You thought you were a clever girl
Giving up your social whirl
But you can't come back and be the first in line, on no
You're obsolete my baby
My poor old-fashioned baby
I said baby, baby, baby you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are left out
Out of there without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of timeback to top
My Girl
(Robinson/White)

I got sunshine, on a cloudy day.
When it's cold outside, I got the month of May.

I guess, you'll say,
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl) my girl
Talkin' 'bout my girl.

I go so much honey, the bees envy me.
I've got a sweeter song, baby, than the birds in the trees.

I guess, you'll say,
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl) my girl
Talkin' 'bout my girl.

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh.
Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Hey, hey, hey, hey. (oooh)

I don't need no money, or count my pay.
I've got all the riches, baby, one man can take.

I guess, you'll say,
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl) my girl
Talkin' 'bout my girl.

I got sunshine, on a cloudy day.
I even got the month of May.
(My girl) My girl. I'm talkin' 'bout my girl.back to top
Backstreet Girl
(Jagger/Richard)

I don't want you to be high
I don't want you to be down
Don't want to tell you no lie
just want you to be around

please come right up to my ears
you will be able to hear what I say

don't want you out in my world
just you be my backstreet girl

please don't be part of my life
please keep yourself to yourself
please don't you bother my wife
that way you won't get no help

don't try to ride on my horse
you're rather common and coarse anyway

don't want you out in my world
just you be my backstreet girl

please don't you call me at home
please don't come knocking at night
please never ring on the phone
your manners are never quite right

please take the favors I grant
curtsy and look nonchalant, just for me

don't want you part of my world
just you be my backstreet girlback to top
Please Go Home
(Jagger/Richards)

Please go home
Please go home

well maybe I'm talkin to fast
but I won't be the first or the last
in the sea of the thousand you cast
c'mon please go home

i don't have to ask what you do
i just have to look to get you
means nothing to me to get through
please go home

i don't want to be on my own
cause I can't talk much better alone
but I don't have to ring like a phone
won't you please go home

please go home
in some early part of your days
you were told of the devious ways
that you thought you could get without pay
won't you please go home

you reach a state of your mind
where it's madness to look and to find
your false affections so kind
please go home
won't you please go homeback to top
Mother's Little Helper
(Jagger/Richards)

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 tranquilize your mind
So go running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And four help you through the night, help to minimize your plight

Doctor please, 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 pusuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way, through your busy dying dayback to top
Take It Or Leave It
(Jagger/Richards)

You can turn off and on more times
than a flashin' neon sign.
When you want you're bad
but you can be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don't tell your friend
just what you're gonna do now
You take it or leave it, it's just my life

There've been times when you tried
makin' eyes at all my so called friends
Then you go, now you're back
but you can be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don't tell your friend
just what you're gonna do now
You take it or leave it, it's just my life

Oh, la-la-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-la-la-la-la
Oh, la-la-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-la-la
Oh, la-la-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-la-la-la-la
Oh, la-la-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-la-la

I'm sick and tired of the smile that you give
when you don't come home at night
You said you'd call, that's a lie
but you could be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don't tell your friend
just what you're gonna do now
You take it or leave it, it's just my life

Oh, la-la-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-la-la-la-la
Oh, la-la-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-la-la
Oh, la-la-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-la-la-la-la
Oh, la-la-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-la-la

Ride On, Baby
(Jagger/Richards)

a smile on your face
but not in your eyes
you're looking through me
you don't feel it inside

get out and ride on, baby, ride on, baby
ride on, baby, ride on, baby
i could pick your face out in an FBI file
you may look pretty but I can't say the same for your mind
ah ah ah

you walk up to me
and try to look shy
the red round your eyes
says that you ain't a child

get out and ride on, baby, ride on, baby
ride on, baby, ride on, baby
well i've seen your face in a trashy magazine
you know where you're going but I don't like the places you've been
ah ah ah

get out and ride on, baby, ride on, baby
ride on, baby, ride on, baby
i can pick your face out from the front or behind
you may look pretty but I can't say the same for your mind
ah ah ah

laugh it a bit
give it a try
if i'm not impressed
you can still cry

get out and ride on, baby, ride on, baby
ride on, baby, ride on, baby
by the time your thirty gonna look sixty-five
you won't look pretty and your friends will have kissed you goodbye

ride on, baby
ride on, baby...back to top
Sittin' On A Fence
(Jagger/Richards)

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 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

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
