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
Don't Lie To Me
(Jagger/Richards)

Well let's talk it over baby before we start
I heard about the way you do your part
Don't lie to me don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad I'll get evil as a man can be

Well all kinds of people that I just can't stand
That's a Iying woman and a cheating man
Don't lie to me don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad I'll get evil as a man can be
yeah

Well I will love you baby and it ain't no lie
For every winter till the well runs dry
Don't lie to me don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad I'm as shook up as a man can be

Well let's talk it over baby before we start
I heard about the way you used to do your part
Don't lie to me don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad I'm as shook up as a man

well well
Well let's talk it over babe before we start
I heard about the way you used to do your part
Don't lie to me don't you lie to me
cuz it make me mad I'll get evil as a man can beback to top
Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind
(Jagger/Richards)

Why does the sky turn grey ev'ry night
Sun rise again in time
Why do you think of the first girl you had
Some things just stick in your mind

Why does the rain fall down on the earth
Why do the clouds keep cryin'
Why do you sleep curled up like a child
Some things just stick in your mind

Why when the children grow up and leave
Still remember their nursery rhymes
Why must there be so much hate in their lives
Some things just stick in their mindsback to top
Each And Every Day Of The Year
(Jagger/Richards)

Do I miss her kiss at night time
Arms around me till the light time
Yes I do,yes I do, yes I do, yes I do
Each and ev'ry day of the year

I still see her on the corner
Do I park and still wait for her
Yes I do, yes I do, yes I do, yes I do
Each and ev'ry day of the year

Never get around any more
Don't know what my friends are for
No fun sitting all alone
When I cry cry cry on my own

Each and ev'ry day of the year
Now that she has gone for ever
Do I wonder what my life's for
Yes I do, yes I do, yes I do, yes I do
Each and ev'ry day of the yearback to top
Heart Of Stone
(Jagger/Richards)

There have been so many girls that I've known
I've made so many cry and still I wonder why
Here comes the little girl;
I see her walking down the street
She's all by herself
I try and knock her off her feet
But she'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone. Oh, no, no this heart of stone

What's different about her?
I don't really know
No matter how I try
I just can't make her cry
But she'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone. Oh, no, no this heart of stone

Don't keep on looking that same old way
If you try acting sad, you'll only make me glad
Better listen little girl
You go on walking 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
This heart of stone,darlin'. No, no this heart of stone
You'll never break it, darlin'. You won't break
This heart of stone. Oh, no, no, no.
You better go, you better go home...back to top
I'd Much Rather Be With The Boys
(Jagger/Richards)

Here i am
all alone and all dressed up to kill
cause I'd much rather be with the boys
than be with you

here i am
with the gang, i don't care where you are
cause i'd much rather be with the boys
than be with you

i hold up my head up high when i walk down the street
now i'm a man i'm standing on my own two feet
don't try to call me cause now i know the score
and now i know that i don't need you anymore

don't put me on
it's over now, it's no good looking back
cause i'd much rather be with the boys

who's fooling who
it's over now and you've had all your headache from me
cause i'd much rather be with the boys
yes i'd much rather be with teh boys
yes i'd much rather be with the boys
and the boys and the boys they would
much rather be with the boys than with girls like you

girls like you...back to top
(Walkin' Through The) Sleepy City
(Jagger/Richards)

Walkin'thru' the sleepy city
in the dark it looks so pretty
Till I got to the one cafe
That stays open night and day

just a lookin' at the sleepy city
in the night it looks so pretty
no one sees the city lights
they just care about the warmth inside

no one listens to what people say
i just sit and hear the radio play
just then this girl walked in my way
and she was as pretty as my sleepy city

will you walk through the sleepy city
in the night it looks so pretty
tired of walkin on my own
it looks better when you're not alone

will you walk through the sleepy city
in the night it looks so pretty
i'm tired of walkin on my own
it looks better when you're not alone

mm mm mm mm mm mm
la la la la la la

will you walk through the sleepy city
in the night, well it looks so pretty
i'm tired of walkin on my own
it looks better when you're not alone

c'mon walk through that sleepy city
i said in the night it looks so pretty
i'm tired of walkin that park on my own
it looks better when you're not aloneback to top
We're Wastin' Time
(Jagger/Richards)

We're wastin time
inside my mind
The thought her won't go away come every day
We're just wasting time

We're wasting time
My clothes are fine
Still fresh and clean
Her sweet perfume in our old room
We're just wasting time

With that face that I've seen
Maybe thinks the same as me
Well nothing that we're learning
While the hands keep turning

Oh girl! Oh girl! Can't you see

The thought of him won't go away come every day
We're just wasting time

Oh girl! Oh girl! Can't you see

We're just wasting time

Family
(Jagger/Richards)

Here's father, his heart screwed on
Yes, here he's got it I'm sure
'Cause he lost his life in an accident
Found his heart in the man next door
What exactly's gonna happen
When they do transplant the brain (?)
Will my borrowed brain still compute the same
Or will my daughter stop her sleeping out

Here comes the girl, she's got her head screwed on
But it ain't screwed on right
Her ambition is to be a prostitute
But the breaks just weren't right
What exactly's gonna happen, tell me
When her father finds out
That his virgin daughter has bordello dreams
And that he's the one she wants to try out
yeah

There's ma, she's living dangerously
It's a cinch she'll try it anything twice
She thinks she can run right to the whirlpool's edge
And stop herself just in time
What exactly's gonna happen
When she finally fizzles out
The lovers will just be sucked into
To see what the colours of death are all about

Here's the son, has his legs a-screwed on
Yeah, they're screwed on pretty tight
But his brain is loose and it ain't no use
He's already lost the fight
What exactly's gonna happen
When he's finally realized
That he can't play his guitar like E.G. Jim
Or write St. Augustine if he tried

That's what happens
When a family finds out
That they've been in orbit now for a thousand years
And need a thousand more to climb outback to top
Memo From Turner
(Jagger/Richards)

Didn't I see you down in San Antone on a hot and dusty night?
We were eating eggs in Sammy's when the black man there drew his knife.
Aw, you drowned that Jew in Rampton as he washed his sleeveless shirt,
You know, that Spanish-speaking gentlemen, the one we all called "Kurt."

Come now, gentleman, I know there's some mistake.
How forgetful I'm becoming, now you fixed your bus'ness straight.

I remember you in Hemlock Road in nineteen fifty-six.
You're a faggy little leather boy with a smaller piece of stick.
You're a lashing, smashing hunk of man;
Your sweat shines sweet and strong.
Your organs working perfectly, but there's a part that's not screwed on.

Weren't you at the Coke convention back on nineteen sixty-five
You're the misbred, grey executive I've seen heavily advertised.
You're the great, gray man whose daughter licks policemen's buttons clean.
You're the man who squats behind the man who works the soft machine.

Come now, gentleman, your love is all I crave.
You'll still be in the circus when I'm laughing, laughing on my grave.

When the old men do the fighting and the young men all look on.
And the young girls eat their mothers meat from tubes of plasticon.
Be wary of these my gentle friends of all the skins you breed.
They have a tasty habit - they eat the hands that bleed.

So remember who you say you are and keep your noses clean.
Boys will be boys and play with toys so be strong with your beast.
Oh Rosie dear, doncha think it's queer, so stop me if you please.
The baby is dead, my lady said, "You gentlemen, why you all work for me?"back to top
I'm Going Down
(Jagger/Richards)

Hey babe, what's wrong with you, girl
the good lord bring your front dean
I have come around ringing your front door bell
Though our love fall down in dark clouds
though i saw a man

Alright

Here we go down now
here we go down
There's nothing for me but the powers that be
I know I, I know I, I know I,
that you're down
oh you're going down
