ROLLING STONE's song lyics 1964-66

 

COME ON
Berry

Everything is wrong since me and my baby parted
All day long I'm walking '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
I can't get started
I can't afford to check it, I wish somebody'd come along and run into it and wreck it
Everything is wrong since I've been without you
Every night I lay awake thinking about you
Every time the phone rings, it sounds like thunder
Some stupid guy trying to reach another number
Come on
Since I've been without you
I always think about you
Phone sounds like thunder, some stupid guy trying to reach another number
Everything is wrong since I last saw you, baby
I really want to see you and I don't mean maybe
I'm doing everything trying to make you see
That I belong to you, honey, you belong to me
Come on
I want to see you baby
I don't mean maybe
I'm trying to make you see that I belong to you and you belong to me
Come on
I've got to see you, baby
I don't mean maybe
I've got to make you see that I belong to you and you belong to me
Come on

NOT FADE AWAY

Holly

I wanna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
I'm gonna love you night and day
Love is love and not fade away
Well love is love and not fade away
And my love is bigger than a Cadillac
I'll try to show it if you drive me back

Your love for me has got to be real
Before you'd have noticed how I feel
Love real not fade away
Well love real not fade away
Yeah

I wanna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
Love that lasts 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
Well love is love and not fade away
Not fade away
Not fade away



I JUST WANT TO MAKE LOVE TO YOU
Willie Dixon

I don't want you to be no slave
I don't want you to work all day
I don't want you to be true
I just want to make love to you

I don't want you to wash my clothes
I don't want you to keep my home
I don't want your money too
I just want to make love to you

Well I can see by the way that you switch and walk
And I can tell by the way that you baby talk
And I know by the way that you treat your man
I wanna love you baby, it's a cryin' shame

I don't want you to bake my bread
I don't want you to make my bed
I don't want you cause I'm sad and blue
I just want to make love to you

ROUTE 66
Bobby Troup

Well if you ever plan to motor west
Just take my way that's the highway that's the best
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than 2000 miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well goes from St. Louie down to Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty
You'll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernadino

Would you get hip to this kindly tip
And go take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well goes from St. Louie down to Missouri
Oklahoma city looks oh so pretty
You'll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernadino

Would you get hip to this kindly tip
And go take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66

CAROL
C Berry

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

IT'S ALL OVER NOW

Bobby Womack

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
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 wake 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

Yeah
Oooh

Jagger, Richards

(Instrumental)



AROUND AND AROUND

Chuck Berry

  said the joint was rocking
Goin' round and round
Yeah, reeling and a rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down

Well it sounds so sweet
I had to take me chance
Rose out of my seat
I just had to dance
Started moving my feet
Whoa to clapping my hands

I said the joint was a rocking
Goin' round and round
Yeah, reeling and a rocking
What a crazy sound
And th ey never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down

 

 

Yeah at twelve o'clock
Yeah the place was packed
Front doors was locked
Yeah the place was packed
And when the police knocked
Those doors flew backBut they kept on rocking
Goin' round and round
Yeah, reeling and a rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down

And they go on rocking
Goin' round and round
Yeah, reeling and a rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down

Well the joint stayed a rocking
Goin' round and round
Yeah, reeling and a rocking
What a crazy sound
And they never stopped rocking
'Til the moon went down  

LITTLE RED ROOSTER
Willie Dixon

I am the little red rooster, too lazy to crow today
I am the little red rooster, too lazy to crow today
Keep everything in the farmyard
Upset in ev'ry way

The dogs begin to barkin', hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to barkin', 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 no peace in the farmyard
Since my little red rooster's been gone

 

 


OFF THE HOOK

Jagger, Richards

Sittin' in my bedroom late last night
Got into bed and turned out the light
Decided to call my baby on the telephone
All I got was an engaged tone
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook

Talkin' so long she upset my mind
Why is she talkin' such a long time?
Maybe she's sleeping, maybe she's ill
Phone's disconnected, unpaid bill
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook

Don't wanna see her, afraid of what I'd find
Tired of letting her upset me all the time
Back into bed started reading my books
Take my phone right off of the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook
It's off the hook

It's off the hook
(repeat and fade)

 

TIME IS ON MY SIDE
Jagger, Richards

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've come running back
Said you will baby
You've come running back
Done that so many times before
You've come running back to me

Oh, 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
I won't have to worry no more
You'll come running back
Spend the rest of my life with you, baby
You'll come running back to me

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

Well, time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is

'Cause I got the real love
The kind that you need
You'll come running back
Said you would, baby
You'll come running back
I don't always said you would
You'll come running back
I won't have to worry no more



 


Yes time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
Time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
Oh, time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
I said, time, time, time is on my side, yes it is
Oh, time, time, time is on my side
Yeah, time, time, time is on my side


THE LAST TIME
Jagger, Richards

I've told you once and I've told you twice
You'd better 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

I'm sorry girl but I can't stay
Feeling like I do today
There's 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

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

I've told you once and I've told you twice
Someone'll have to pay the price
Here's a chance to change your mind
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

SATISFACTION
Jagger, Richards


I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction 
'Cause 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 the man come on the radio
He's tellin me more and more about some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I can't get no. 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 and try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm watching my TV and a man comes on and tells me
How white my shirts can be
But he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke the same cigarettes 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 reaction
'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 signin' that
And I'm tryin' to make some girl, who tells me
Baby, better come back maybe next week
'Cause you see I'm on a 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, no satisfaction
No satisfaction, no satisfaction


 

I'M FREE
Jagger, Richards

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 though it gets out of time
I'm free to sing my song though it gets out of time
So love me, hold me, love me, hold me
And I'm free any old time to get what I want

Love me, hold me, love me, hold me
But I'm free any old time to get what I want

I'm free to choose what I please any old time
I'm free to choose what I please any old time
So hold me, love me, love me, hold me

I'm free any old time to get what I want, yes I am

 

 


GET OFF MY CLOUD
Jagger, Richards

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 comes a man all dressed up like a Union Jack
And says I've won five pounds if I have his kind of detergent pack.

I says: 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 it on the line?"
A voice says "Hi, hello, how are you?"
Well, I guess I'm going fine.
He says "It's three A.M., there's too much noise,
Don't you people ever go to bed? Just 'cause you feel so good,
Do you have to drive me out of my head?"

I says: 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 down town.
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
wind-screen.

I says: 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.
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud.
Dont' hang around 'cause two's a crowd.

 

19TH NERVOUS BREAKDOWN
Jagger, Richards

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 woes 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.


LADY JANE

Jagger, Richards

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 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 Jane


UNDER MY THUMB

Jagger, Richards

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



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

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 day

 

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, oh 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 time

I said,  baby, baby, you're out of time

 

PAINT IT BLACK
Jagger, Richards
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 wanted 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

Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm,....

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!
