Gimme Shelter
- Jagger/Richards

Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today.
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away.

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away.
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away.

Ooh, see the fire sweepin'
Our very street today.
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way.

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away.
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away.

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today.
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away.

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away.back to top
Love In Vain
- Trad arr. Jagger/Richards

Well I followed her to the station
With a suitcase in my hand
Yeah, I followed her to the station
With a suitcase in my hand
Lord, its hard to tell hard to tell
When all your love's in vain

When the train come in the station
I looked her in the eye
Yeah the train it come in the station
And I looked her in the eye
Whoa, I felt so sad so lonesome
That I could not help but cry

When the train left the station
It had two lights on behind
Yeah, the train it left the station I said
It had two lights on behind
ohhh, the blue light was my baby
and the red light was my mind

I'm gonna tell ya, all my love's
all my love's in vainback to top
Country Honk
- Jagger/Richards

Sittin' in a bar tippling a jar in Jackson
And on the street the summer sun it shines
There's many a bar-room queen
I've had in Jackson
But I just can't seem to drink you off my mind
It's those Honky-Tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues

I laid a divorcee in New York City
I had to put up some kind of a fight
The Lady she all dressed me up in roses
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind
It's those Honky-Tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues

It's those Honky-Tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues
It's those Honky-Tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues
It's those Honky-Tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk bluesback to top
Live With Me
- Jagger/Ruchards

I got nasty habits, I take tea at three
Yes and the meat I eat for dinner
Must be hung up for a week
My best friend he shoots water rats,
And feeds them to his geese
Doncha think there's a place for you
In between the sheets?

Come now, honey,
we can build a place for three
Come on now honey,
doncha wanna live with me?

There's a score of hair-brained children
They're all locked in the nursery
They got earphone heads they got dirty necks
They're so 20th century
Well they cue up for the bathroom
'round about 7:35
Doncha think we need a womans touch to make it come alive??

You'd look good pram pushing,
down the high street
Come on now honey,
doncha wanna live with me?

Oh, the servants they're so helpful, dear
The cook she is a whore
Yes, The butler has a place for her
behind the pantry door
The maid, she's French, She's got no sense
She's from the Crazy Horse
When she strips, the chauffeur flips
The footman's eyes be crossed

Oh, don'cha think there's a place for us,
right across the street
Don'cha think there's a place for you,
in between the sheetsback to top
Let It Bleed
- Jagger/Richards

Well, we all need someone we can lean on
And if you want it, you can lean on me
Yeah, we all need someone we can lean on
And if you want it, you can lean on me

She said my breasts, they will always be open
Baby, you can rest your weary head right on me
And there will always be a space in my parking lot
When you need a little coke and sympathy

Yeah, we all need someone we can dream on
And if you want to, you can dream on me
Yeah, We all need someone we can cream on
And if you want to, you can cream on me

I was dreaming of a steel guitar engagement
When you drank my health in scented Jasmine Tea
And then she knifed me in my dirty filthy basement
With that jaded, faded, junky nurse (Oh what pleasant company)

We all need someone we can feed on
And if you want to, you can feed on me
Take my arms, take my legs, oh baby don't you take my head
We all need someone we can feed on
And if you want to, you can feed on me
We all need someone we can feed on
And if you want to, you can feed on me
Bleed alright, bleed alright, bleed alright, you can bleed all over
me
Bleed alright, bleed alright, you can be my rider, you can cum all
over me
Bleed alright, bleed alright, bleed alright, you can bleed all over
me
Bleed alright, bleed alright, you can be my rider, you can cum all
over meback to top
Midnight Rambler
- Jagger/Richards

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 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 cockrel 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 sad
Listen and you'll hear him moan
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've never seen before

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
Well, go easy with your cold fandango
I'll stick my knife right down your throat, baby
And it hurts!back to top
You Got The Silver
- Jagger/Richards

Hey babe, what's in your eyes?
I saw them flashing like airplane lights
You fill my cup, babe, that's for sure
I must come back for a little more.

You got my heart you got my soul
You got the silver you got the gold
You got the diamonds from the mines

Well that's all right it'll buy some time.

Tell me, honey, what will I do
When I'm hungry and thirsty too
Feeling fooling (and that's for sure)
Just waiting here at your kitchen door?
Hey baby, what's in your eyes
Is that the diamonds from the mines
What's that laughing in your smile?
I don't care, no, I don't care

Hey babe, you got my soul
You got the silver you got the gold
A flash of love just made me blind

I don't care, no, that's no big surprise.back to top
Monkey Man
- Jagger/Richards

I'm a fleabit peanut monkey
All my friends are junkies
That's not really true
I'm a cold Italian pizza
I could use a lemon squeezer
Whould you do?

I've been biten
I've been tossed around by every she-rat in this town
Have you, Babe?

Well, I'm just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey woman too

I was bitten by a boar
I was gouged and I was gored
But I pulled on through
I am a sack of broken eggs
I always have an unmade bed
Don't you?

Well, I hope we're not too messianic
Or a trifle too satanic
We love to play the blues

And I'm just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey woman tooback to top
You Can't Always Get What You Want
- Jagger/Richards

[ 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 a footloose man. ]

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 a 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 just might find
You'll get what you need.

I went down to the demonstration,
To get my fair share of abuse.
Singing "we're gonna vent our frustrations,
And if we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse."

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'll get what you need.

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,
And he said one word to me, and that was "dead,"
I said to him,

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'll get what you need.

You'll get what you need--yeah, oh baby.

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 bloodstained 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'll get what you need.

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'll get what you need.back to top
