Rolling stones - Come On

Everything is wrong since me and my baby parted
All day long I'm walkin' 'cause I couldn't get my car started
Laid off from my job and I can't afford to check it
I wish somebody'd come along and run into it and wreck it

Come on, since me and my baby parted
Come on, I can't get started
Come on, I can't afford to check
I wish somebody'd come along and run into it and wreck it

Everything is wrong since I've been without you
Ev'ry night I lay awake thinkin' about you
Ev'ry time the phone rings it sounds like thunder
Some stupid guy try'n' to reach another number

Come on, since I've been without you
Come on, always thinkin' about you
Come on, phone sounds like thunder
Some stupid guy try'n' to reach another number

Everything is wrong since I last saw you, baby
I really wanna see you and I don't mean maybe
I'm doin' ev'rything try'n' to make you see
That I belong to you, hon, and you belong to me

Come on, I wanna see you, baby
Come on, I don't mean maybe
Come on, I'm try'n' to make you see
That I belong to you and you belong to me

Come on, I gotta see you, baby
Come on, I don't mean maybe
Come on, I've gotta make you see
That I belong to you and you belong to me

Come on, come on, come on, come on

(Lennon/McCartney)

I wanna be your lover, baby,
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover, baby
I wanna be your man
Tell me that you love me, baby
Tell me you understand
Tell me that you love me, baby
Tell me you understand
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man

I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man

Tell me that you love me, baby
Tell me you understand
Tell me that you love me, baby
Tell me you understand

I wanna be your lover, baby
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover, baby
I wanna be your man

. . .



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

Rolling Stones- Carol

Oh, Carol
Don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance
If it takes me all night and day
Climb into my machine so we can groove on out
I know some swinging little joint where we can jump and shout
It's not too far back on the highway not so long a ride
You park the car out in the open you can walk inside
A little cutie takes your hat and you can thank her ma'am
'Cause every time you make the scene you find the joint is jammed
Oh, Carol
Don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance
If it takes me all night and day
Now, if you want to hear some music like the boys are playing
Hold tight, bang your foot don't let it carry you away
Don't let the heat overcome you when they play so loud
Won't the music intrigue you when they get a crowd
Well you can't dance I know you would you could
I got my eyes on you, baby, cause you dance so good
Oh, Carol
Don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance
If it takes me all night and day
Oh, Carol
Don't let him steal your heart away
I've got to learn to dance
If it takes me all night and day



. . .


I want you back again
I want your love again
I know you find it hard to reason with me
But this time it's diff'rent, darling you'll see

You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
You gotta tell me you're coming back to me

You said we're through before
You walked out on me before
I tried to tell you, but you didn't want to know
This time you're diff'rent and determined to go

You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
You gotta tell...

I wait as the days go by
I long for the nights to go by
I hear the knock on my door that never comes
I hear the telephone that hasn't rung

You gotta tell me you're coming back to me
You gotta tell...


. . .



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

Rolling Stones - Little Red Rooster

I am the little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day
I am the little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day

Keep everything in the farm yard upset in every way

The dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
Watch out strange cat people
Little red rooster's on the prowl

If you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
If you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
Ain't had no peace in the farm yard
Since my little red rooster's been gone




. . .


There've 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,
Trying so hard to please, but
She'll never break, nerver 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 maker her cry.
But she'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone. Oh, no, no, no, this heart of stone.
Don't keep on looking that some 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.
But you'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone. Oh, no, no, this heart of stone,
You'll never break this heart of stone.


. . .


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, you'll come running back
You'll come running back to me

Yeah, 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...

Go ahead, baby, go ahead. Go ahead and light up the town
And baby, do anything your heart desires
Remember, I'll always be around
And I know like I told you so many times before
You're gonna come back
Yeah, you're gonna come back, baby
Knockin', yeah, knockin' right on my door, yeah!

Time is on my side (Yes it is)
Time is on my side (Yes it is)
Cause I've got real the love, the kind that you need
You'll come running back...

Yeah, time, time time is on my side (Yes it is)
I said, time, time, time is on my side (Yes it is)
I said, time, time, time is on my side


. . .



Well I told you once and I told you twice 
But ya never 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. Oh no. Oh no 

Well, I'm sorry girl but I can't stay 
Feelin' like I do today 
It's too much pain and 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. Oh no 

Well I told you once and I told you twice 
That someone will have to pay the price 
But here's a chance to change your mind 
'Cuz I'll be gone a long, long time 

Well this could be the last time 
This could be the last time 
Maybe the last time 
I don't know. Oh no. Oh no 
Well, this could be the last time

. . .


Well, you've got your diamonds and you've got your pretty clothes
And the chauffeur drives your car
You let everybody know
But don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire

Your mother she's a heiress, owns a block in Saint John's Wood
And your father'd be there with her
If he only could
But don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire

Your old man took her diamonds and tiaras by the score
Now she gets her kicks in Stepney
Not in Knightsbridge anymore
So don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire

Now you've got some diamonds and you will have some others
But you'd better watch your step, girl
Or start living with your mother
So don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire
So don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire


. . .



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 that man comes on the radio
and 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 that man comes on to tell me
how white my shirts can be.
Well he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
the same cigarrettes 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 girl with action.
'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 signing that
and I'm tryin' to make some girl
who tells me baby better come back later next week
'cause you see I'm on 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 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 say, 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 say, 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 quiet 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 say, 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 say, 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


. . .


I'm free to do what I want any old time
I'm free to do what I want any old time
So love me hold me love me hold me
I'm free any old time to get what I want

I'm free to sing my song knowing it's out of trend
I'm free to sing my song knowing it's out of trend
So love me hold me love me hold me
'Cause I'm free any old time to get what I want

So love me hold me love me hold me
I'm free any old time to get what I want

I'm free to choose who I see any old time
I'm free to bring who I choose any old time
Love me hold me love me hold me
I'm free any old time to get what I want

. . .


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

Rolling Stones - 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 knees 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 I am
This play is run my love
Your time has come my love
I've pledged my troth to Lady Jane
Oh my sweet Marie
I wait at your ease
The sands have run out
For your lady and me
Wedlock is nigh my love
Her station's right my love
Life is secure with Lady Jane


. . .



I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors 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 new born baby it just happens ev'ry day
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and it has been painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the settin' sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors 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
Hmm, hmm, hmm,...
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah!

. . .



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 day

. . .



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 
Owes a million dollars tax. 
And your father's still perfecting ways of making ceiling 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 
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown

. . .



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

. . .


You don't know what's going on, you've been gone 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
Yes, you are left out, yes, you are
I said you're left out of there without a doubt
'cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

A girl who wants to run away, discovers that she's had her day
It's no good thinking that you are still mine
You're out of touch, my baby, my poor unfaithful baby
I said baby...

You thought you were a clever girl giving up your social whirl
But you can't come back and be the first in line
You're obsolete, my baby, my poor oldfashioned baby
I said baby...

. . .


who wants yesterdays papers
who wants yesterdays girl
who wants yesterdays papers
nobody in the world

after this time I finally learned
after the pain and hurt
after all this what have I achieved
I've realized it's time to leave

cause
who wants yesterdays papers
who wants yesterdays girl
who wants yesterdays papers
nobody in the world

Living a life of constant change
every day means the turn of a page
yesterdays papers are such bad news
same thing applies to me and you

who wants yesterdays papers
who wants yesterdays girl
who wants yesterdays papers
nobody in the world

seems very hard to have just one girl
when there's a million in the world
all of these people just can't wait
to fall right into their big mistake

who wants yesterdays papers
who wants yesterdays girl
who wants yesterdays papers
nobody in the world

. . .



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 and don't let me down (don't let me down) 
We could have fun just groovin' around around and around 
Oh my, my 
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 
I'm just deciding 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 
Oh my, my, my, my, my 
Let's spend the night together 
Now I need you more than ever 
Let's spend the night together now

. . .



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 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 decline

. . .



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 

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...

Rolling Stones - Dandelion

Prince or pauper, beggar man or thing
Play the game with ev'ry flow'r you bring
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion

One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock, four o'clock chimes
Dandelions don't care about the time
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion

Tho' you're older now its just the same
You can play this dandelion game
When you're finished with your childlike prayers
Well, you know you should wear it

Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailors lives
Rich man, poor man, beautiful, daughters wives
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion

Little girls, and boys come out to play
Bring your dandelions to blow away
Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion

. . .



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 like 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

We don't care if you only love "we"
We don't care if you only love "we"
We love you. We love you, and we hope
that you will love "we" too
We love "they". We love "they", and
we want you to love "they" too
Ah

We don't care if you hound "we" and
love is all around "we"
Love can't get our minds off
We love you, we love you

You will never win "we"
Your uniforms don't fit "we"
We forget the place we're in
'Cause we love you
We love you. Of course, we do

I love you. I love you
And I hope that you won't prove wrong
too
We love you. We do. We love you. We
do. Ah...

Sun turning 'round with graceful motion
We're setting off with soft explosion
Bound for a star with fiery oceans

It's so very lonely, you're a hundred light years from home

Freezing red deserts turn to dark
Energy here in every part

It's so very lonely, you're six hundred light years from home

It's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home
It's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home

Bell flight fourteen you now can land
Seen you on Aldebaran, safe on the green desert sand
It's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home
It's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane 
And I howled at my ma in the driving 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! 

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. 
Yeah, yeah, yeah 
I was crowned with a spike right thru my head. 
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! 

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas 
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas 
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas 
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas 
Jumping Jack Flash

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 
But 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 
'Cauce 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 no place for a street fighting man 
No 

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 no place for a street fighting man 
No

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
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around St. Petersburg
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
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
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 troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
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
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Tell me baby, what's my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name
I 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
Oh, yeah
What's me name
Tell me, baby, what's my name
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

Take me to the station
And put me on a train,
I’ve got no expectations
To pass through here again

Once I was a rich man
Now I am so poor
But never in my sweet short life
Have I felt like this before

You’re heart is like a diamond
You throw you’re pearls at swine
And as I watch you leaving me
You pack my peace of mind

Our love was like the water
The splashes on a stone
Our love is like our music
It’s here, and then it’s gone

So take me to the airport
And put me on a plane,
I’ve got no expectations
To pass through here again

Mm mm mm....

. . .


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

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

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

I was dreaming of a steel guitar engagement
When you drink my health in scented jasmine tea
You 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 it, you can feed on me
Take my arm, take my leg
Oh, baby, don't you take my head

We all need someone we can bleed on
And if you want it, you can bleed on me
We all need someone we can bleed on
And if you want it, why don't you bleed on me

Get it on, rider
Get it on, rider
Get it on, rider
You can bleed all over me

Did you hear about the Midnight Rambler?
Ev'rybody got to go
Did you heard 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's split, the time the cook'rel crows

Talkin' 'bout the Midnight Rambler,
the one you never seen before
Talkin' 'bout the midnight gambler
Did you see him jump the garden wall?
Sighin' down the wind softly
Listen and you hear him moan

Talkin' 'bout the midnight gambler
Ev'rybody got to go
Did you hear about the midnight gambler?
Well, honey, it's no rock'n'roll show

Talkin' 'bout the Midnight Rambler,
the one you never seen before
Oh, don't do that
Oh, don't do that
Oh, don't do that

Did you hear about the Midnight Rambler?
He'll leave his footprints up and down your hall
Did you hear about the Midnight Rambler?
Did you see me make my midnight call

And if you 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!

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 is 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 

Rape, murder! 
It's just a shot away 
It's just a shot away 

Rape, murder! 
It's just a shot away 
It's just a shot away 

Rape, murder! 
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

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 well you might find
You get what you need
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"
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
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
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 get what you need
You 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 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
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

Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields,
Sold in a market down in New Orleans.
Scarred old slaver know he's doin' alright.
Hear him whip the women just around midnight.
Ah Brown Sugar how come you taste so good
(A-ha) Brown Sugar, just like a young girl should

Drums beating, cold English blood runs hot,
Lady of the house wond'rin where it's gonna stop.
House boy knows that he's doin' alright.

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 her 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 divorcee 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. 

(Yeah!) It's the honky tonk women. 
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. 

(Yeah!) It's the honky tonk women. 
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

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 decided to show me the same 
No sweeping exits 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 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

Rolling stones - Come On

Everything is wrong since me and my baby parted
All day long I'm walkin' 'cause I couldn't get my car started
Laid off from my job and I can't afford to check it
I wish somebody'd come along and run into it and wreck it

Come on, since me and my baby parted
Come on, I can't get started
Come on, I can't afford to check
I wish somebody'd come along and run into it and wreck it

Everything is wrong since I've been without you
Ev'ry night I lay awake thinkin' about you
Ev'ry time the phone rings it sounds like thunder
Some stupid guy try'n' to reach another number

Come on, since I've been without you
Come on, always thinkin' about you
Come on, phone sounds like thunder
Some stupid guy try'n' to reach another number

Everything is wrong since I last saw you, baby
I really wanna see you and I don't mean maybe
I'm doin' ev'rything try'n' to make you see
That I belong to you, hon, and you belong to me

Come on, I wanna see you, baby
Come on, I don't mean maybe
Come on, I'm try'n' to make you see
That I belong to you and you belong to me

Come on, I gotta see you, baby
Come on, I don't mean maybe
Come on, I've gotta make you see
That I belong to you and you belong to me

Come on, come on, come on, come on

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

Rolling Stones- Carol

Oh, Carol
Don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance
If it takes me all night and day
Climb into my machine so we can groove on out
I know some swinging little joint where we can jump and shout
It's not too far back on the highway not so long a ride
You park the car out in the open you can walk inside
A little cutie takes your hat and you can thank her ma'am
'Cause every time you make the scene you find the joint is jammed
Oh, Carol
Don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance
If it takes me all night and day
Now, if you want to hear some music like the boys are playing
Hold tight, bang your foot don't let it carry you away
Don't let the heat overcome you when they play so loud
Won't the music intrigue you when they get a crowd
Well you can't dance I know you would you could
I got my eyes on you, baby, cause you dance so good
Oh, Carol
Don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance
If it takes me all night and day
Oh, Carol
Don't let him steal your heart away
I've got to learn to dance
If it takes me all night and day



. . .



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

Rolling Stones - Little Red Rooster

I am the little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day
I am the little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day

Keep everything in the farm yard upset in every way

The dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
Watch out strange cat people
Little red rooster's on the prowl

If you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
If you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
Ain't had no peace in the farm yard
Since my little red rooster's been gone




. . .


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, you'll come running back
You'll come running back to me

Yeah, 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...

Go ahead, baby, go ahead. Go ahead and light up the town
And baby, do anything your heart desires
Remember, I'll always be around
And I know like I told you so many times before
You're gonna come back
Yeah, you're gonna come back, baby
Knockin', yeah, knockin' right on my door, yeah!

Time is on my side (Yes it is)
Time is on my side (Yes it is)
Cause I've got real the love, the kind that you need
You'll come running back...

Yeah, time, time time is on my side (Yes it is)
I said, time, time, time is on my side (Yes it is)
I said, time, time, time is on my side

Well I told you once and I told you twice 
But ya never 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. Oh no. Oh no 

Well, I'm sorry girl but I can't stay 
Feelin' like I do today 
It's too much pain and 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. Oh no 

Well I told you once and I told you twice 
That someone will have to pay the price 
But here's a chance to change your mind 
'Cuz I'll be gone a long, long time 

Well this could be the last time 
This could be the last time 
Maybe the last time 
I don't know. Oh no. Oh no 
Well, this could be the last time

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 that man comes on the radio
and 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 that man comes on to tell me
how white my shirts can be.
Well he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
the same cigarrettes 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 girl with action.
'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 signing that
and I'm tryin' to make some girl
who tells me baby better come back later next week
'cause you see I'm on 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 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 say, 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 say, 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 quiet 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 say, 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 say, 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

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 
Owes a million dollars tax. 
And your father's still perfecting ways of making ceiling 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 
Here comes your nine-teenth nervous breakdown

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


. . .



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

Rolling Stones - 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 knees 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 I am
This play is run my love
Your time has come my love
I've pledged my troth to Lady Jane
Oh my sweet Marie
I wait at your ease
The sands have run out
For your lady and me
Wedlock is nigh my love
Her station's right my love
Life is secure with Lady Jane


. . .


You don't know what's going on, you've been gone 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
Yes, you are left out, yes, you are
I said you're left out of there without a doubt
'cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

A girl who wants to run away, discovers that she's had her day
It's no good thinking that you are still mine
You're out of touch, my baby, my poor unfaithful baby
I said baby...

You thought you were a clever girl giving up your social whirl
But you can't come back and be the first in line
You're obsolete, my baby, my poor oldfashioned baby
I said baby...

. . .



I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors 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 new born baby it just happens ev'ry day
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and it has been painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the settin' sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors 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
Hmm, hmm, hmm,...
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah!

. . .



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 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 decline

. . .



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 and don't let me down (don't let me down) 
We could have fun just groovin' around around and around 
Oh my, my 
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 
I'm just deciding 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 
Oh my, my, my, my, my 
Let's spend the night together 
Now I need you more than ever 
Let's spend the night together now

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 

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... 

. . .


who wants yesterdays papers
who wants yesterdays girl
who wants yesterdays papers
nobody in the world

after this time I finally learned
after the pain and hurt
after all this what have I achieved
I've realized it's time to leave

cause
who wants yesterdays papers
who wants yesterdays girl
who wants yesterdays papers
nobody in the world

Living a life of constant change
every day means the turn of a page
yesterdays papers are such bad news
same thing applies to me and you

who wants yesterdays papers
who wants yesterdays girl
who wants yesterdays papers
nobody in the world

seems very hard to have just one girl
when there's a million in the world
all of these people just can't wait
to fall right into their big mistake

who wants yesterdays papers
who wants yesterdays girl
who wants yesterdays papers
nobody in the world

We don't care if you only love "we"
We don't care if you only love "we"
We love you. We love you, and we hope
that you will love "we" too
We love "they". We love "they", and
we want you to love "they" too
Ah

We don't care if you hound "we" and
love is all around "we"
Love can't get our minds off
We love you, we love you

You will never win "we"
Your uniforms don't fit "we"
We forget the place we're in
'Cause we love you
We love you. Of course, we do

I love you. I love you
And I hope that you won't prove wrong
too
We love you. We do. We love you. We
do. Ah...

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 like 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

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane 
And I howled at my ma in the driving 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! 

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. 
Yeah, yeah, yeah 
I was crowned with a spike right thru my head. 
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! 

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas 
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas 
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas 
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas 
Jumping Jack Flash

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 her 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 divorcee 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. 

(Yeah!) It's the honky tonk women. 
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. 

(Yeah!) It's the honky tonk women. 
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

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
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around St. Petersburg
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
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
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 troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
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
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Tell me baby, what's my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name
I 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
Oh, yeah
What's me name
Tell me, baby, what's my name
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

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 
But 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 
'Cauce 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 no place for a street fighting man 
No 

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 no place for a street fighting man 
No

Did you hear about the Midnight Rambler?
Ev'rybody got to go
Did you heard 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's split, the time the cook'rel crows

Talkin' 'bout the Midnight Rambler,
the one you never seen before
Talkin' 'bout the midnight gambler
Did you see him jump the garden wall?
Sighin' down the wind softly
Listen and you hear him moan

Talkin' 'bout the midnight gambler
Ev'rybody got to go
Did you hear about the midnight gambler?
Well, honey, it's no rock'n'roll show

Talkin' 'bout the Midnight Rambler,
the one you never seen before
Oh, don't do that
Oh, don't do that
Oh, don't do that

Did you hear about the Midnight Rambler?
He'll leave his footprints up and down your hall
Did you hear about the Midnight Rambler?
Did you see me make my midnight call

And if you 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!


. . .



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 is 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 

Rape, murder! 
It's just a shot away 
It's just a shot away 

Rape, murder! 
It's just a shot away 
It's just a shot away 

Rape, murder! 
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
