Exile on Main Street: Las letras de los Temas
Rocks Off (Jagger/Richards)

I hear you talking when I'm on the street,
your mouth don't move but I can hear you speak.
What's the matter with the boy?
He don't come around no more,
is he checking out for sure?
Is he gonna close the door on me?

And I'm always hearing voices on the street,
I want to shout, but I can't hardly speak.
I was making love last night
to a dancer friend of mine.
I can't seem to stay in step,
'cause she come ev'ry time that she pirouettes over me.

And I only get my rocks off while I'm dreaming,
I only get my rocks off while I'm sleeping.

I'm zipping through the days at lightning speed.
Plug in, flush out and fire the fuckin feed.
Heading for the overload,
splattered on the dusty road,
kick me like you've kicked before,
I can't even feel the pain no more.

But I only get my rocks off while I'm dreaming,
I only get my rocks off while I'm sleeping.

Feel so hypnotized, can't describe the scene.
Feel so mesmerized all that inside me.
The sunshine bores the daylights out of me.
Chasing shadows moonlight mystery.
Headed for the overload,
splattered on the dirty road,
kick me like you've kicked before,
I can't even feel the pain no more.

But I only get my rocks off while I'm dreaming,
I only get my rocks off while I'm sleeping.

Rip This Joint (Jagger/Richards)

Mama says yes, Papa says no,
make up you mind 'cause I gotta go.
I'm gonna raise hell at the Union Hall,
drive myself right over the wall.

Rip this joint, gonna save your soul,
round and round and round we go.
Roll this joint, gonna get down low,
start my starter, gonna stop the show.
Oh, yeah!

Mister President, Mister Immigration Man,
let me in, sweetie, to your fair land.
I'm Tampa bound and Memphis too,
Short Fat Fanny is on the loose.
Dig that sound on the radio,
then slip it right across into Buffalo.
Dick and Pat in ole D.C.,
well they're gonna hold some shit for me.

Ying yang, you're my thing,
oh, now, baby, won't you hear me sing.
Flip Flop, fit to drop,
come on baby, won't you let it rock?

Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah!
From San Jose down to Santa Fe,
kiss me quick, baby, won'tcha make my day.
Down to New Orleans with the Dixie Dean,
'cross to Dallas, Texas and the Butter Queen.

Rip this joint, gonna rip yours too,
some brand new steps and some weight to lose.
Gonna roll this joint, gonna get down low,
round and round and round we'll go.

Wham, Bham, Birmingham, Alabam' don't give a damn.
Little Rock fit to drop.
Ah, let it rock.

Shake Your Hips (James Moore)

I wanna tell you 'bout a dance
that's goin' around
everybody's doin' it
from the grownups down
Don't move your head
don't move your hands
don't move your lips
just shake your hips
Do the hip shake, babe
do the hip shake, babe
shake your hip, babe
shake your hip, babe

What you don't know
don't be afraid
just listen to me
and do what I say
Don't move your head
don't move your hands
don't move your lips
just shake your hips
Do the hip shake, babe
do the hip shake, babe
shake your hip, babe
shake your hip, babe
well ain't that easy

Well, I met a little girl
in a country town
she said, "What do you know
there's Slim Harpo!"
Didn't move her head
didn't move her hands
didn't move her lips
just shook her hips
Do the hip shake, babe
do the hip shake, babe
shake your hip, babe
shake your hip, babe
well ain't that easy

Casino Boogie (Jagger/Richards)

No good, can't speak, wound up, no sleep
Sky diver insider her, skip rope, stunt flyer
Wounded lover, got no time on hand
One last cycle, thrill freak Uncle Sam
Pause for bus'ness, hope you'll understand
Judge and jury walk out hand in hand
Dietrich movies, close up boogies
kissing cunt in Cannes

Grotesque music, million dollar sad
Got no tactics, got no time on hand
Left shoe shuffle, right shoe muffle
sinking in the sand
Fade out freedom, steaming heat on
Watch that hat in black
Finger twitching, got no time on hand

 

Tumbling Dice (Jagger/Richards)

People think I'm crazy, they're always tryin' to waste me
make me burn the candle right down,
but baby, baby, I don't need no jewels in my crown.
'Cause all you wimen is low down gamblers,
cheatin' like I don't know how,
but baby, baby, there's fever in the funk house now.
This low down bitchin' got my poor feet a itchin',
don't you know that duece's stay wild.

Baby, I can't stay, you got to roll me
and call me the tumblin' dice.

Always in a hurry, you never stop to worry,
don't you see the time flashin' by.
Honey, got no money,
I'm all sixes and sevens and nines.
Say now, baby, I'm a rank outsider,
you can be my partner in crime.

But baby, I can't stay,
you got to roll me and call me the tumblin',
roll me and call me the tumblin' dice.

Oh, my, my, my, I'm the lone crap shooter,
playin' the field ev'ry night.

Baby, can't stay,
you got to roll me and call me the tumblin' ,
roll me and call me the tumblin' dice.
Got to roll me. Got to roll me.

Sweet Virginia (Jagger/Richards)

Wading through the waste stormy winter
And there's not a friend to help you through
Trying to stop the waves behind your eyeballs
Drop your reds drop your greens and blues

Thank you for your wine, California
Thank you for your sweet and bitter fruits
Yes, I've got the desert in my toenail
And hid the speed inside my shoe

But come on come on down Sweet Virginia
Come on honey child I beg of you

Come on come on down you got it in you
Got to scrape that shit right off your shoes

 

Torned And Frayed (Jagger/Richards)

Hey let him follow you down,
way underground wind and he's bound.
Bound to follow you down,
just a dead beat right off the street.
Bound to follow you down.
Well the ballrooms and smelly bordellos
and dressing rooms filled with parasites.
On stage the band has got problems,
they're a bag of nerves on first nights.
He ain't tied down to no home town,
yeah, and he thought he was wreckless.
You think he's bad, he thinks you're mad,
yeah, and the guitar player gets restless.

And his coat is torn and frayed,
it's seen much better days.
Just as long as the guitar plays
let it steal your heart away,
let it steal your heart away.

Joe's got a cough, sounds kind a rough,
yeah, and the codeine to fix it.
Doctor prescribes, drug store supplies,
who's gonna help him to kick it?

Well his coat is torn and frayed,
it`s seen much better days.
Just as long as the guitar plays
let it steal your heart away,
let it steal your heart away.

Sweet Black Angel (Jagger/Richards)

Got a sweet black angel,
got a pin up girl,
got a sweet black angel,
up upon my wall.
Well, she ain't no singer
and she ain't no star,
but she sure talk good,
and she move so fast.
But the gal in danger,
yeah, de gal in chains,
but she keep on pushin',
would ya take her place?
She countin' up de minutes,
she countin' up de days,
She's a sweet black angel, woh,
not a sweet black slave.
Ten little niggers
sittin' on de wall,
her borthers been a fallin',
fallin' one by one.
For a judges murder
in a judges court,
now de judge he gonna judge her
for all dat he's worth.
Well de gal in danger,
de gal in chains,
but she keep on pushin'
would you do the same?
She countin' up de minutes,
she countin' up de days,
she's a sweet black angel,
not a gun toting teacher,
not a Red lovin' school mom,
ain't someone gonna free her,
free de sweet black slave,
free de sweet black slave.

Loving Cup (Jagger/Richards)

I'm the man on the mountain, come on up
I'm the plowman in the valley with a face full of mud
Yes, I'm fumbling and I know my car don't start
Yes, I'm stumbling and I know I play a bad guitar

Give me little drink from your loving cup
Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk

I'm the man who walks the hillside in the sweet summer sun
I'm the man that brings you roses when you ain't got none
Well I can run and jump and fish, but I won't fight you
if you want to push and pull with me all night

Give me little drink from you loving cup
Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk

I feel so humble with you tonight,
just sitting in front of the fire
See your face dancing in the flame,
feel your mouth kissing me again,
what a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz,
what a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz
Oh, what a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz

Yes, I am nitty gritty and my shirt's all torn,
but I would love to spill the beans with you till dawn

Give me little drink from you loving cup
Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk

Happy (Jagger/Richards)

Well, I never kept a dollar past sunset
It always burned a hole in my pants
Never made a school mama happy
Never blew a second chance, oh no!

I need a love to keep me happy
I need a love to keep me happy
Baby, baby keep me happy
Baby, baby keep me happy

Always took candy from strangers
Didn't wanna get me no trade
Never want to be like papa
Working for the boss ev'ry night and day

I need a love to keep me happy
I need a love to keep me happy
Baby, baby keep me happy
Baby, baby keep me happy

Never got a flash out of cocktails
When I get some flesh off the bone
Never got a lift out of lear jets
When I can fly way back home

Happy, baby won't you keep me...
Happy, baby won't you keep me...
Happy...

Turd On The Run (Jagger/Richards)

Grabbed hold of your coat tail but it come off in my hand,
I reached for your lapel but it weren't sewn on so grand
Begged, promised anything if only you would stay,
well, I lost a lot of love over you.
Fell down to my knees and I hung onto your pants,
but you just kept on runnin' while they ripped off in my hands
Diamond rings, vaseline, you give me disease,
well, I lost a lot of lover over you
I boogied in the ballroom, I boogied in the dark
Tie you hands, tie you feet, throw you to the sharks
Make you sweat, make you scream, make you wish you'd never been,
I lost a lot of love over you

Ventilator Blues (Jagger/Richards/Taylor)

When your spine is cracking and your hands, they shake,
heart is bursting and you butt's gonna break.
Your woman's cussing, you can hear her scream,
you feel like murder in the first degree.
Ain't nobody slowing down no way,
ev'rybody's stepping on their accelerator,
don't matter where you are,
ev'rybody's gonna need a ventilator.
When you're trapped and circled with no second chances,
your code of living is your gun in hand.
We can't be browed by beating, we can't be cowed by words,
messed by cheating, ain't gonna ever learn.
Ev'rybody walking 'round,
ev'rybody trying to step on their Creator.
Don't matter where you are, ev'rybody, ev'rybody gonna
need some kind of ventilator, some kind of ventilator.
What you gonna do about it, what you gonna do?
What you conna do about it, what you gonna do?
Gonna fight it, gonna fight it?

Just Want To See His Face (Jagger/Richards)

That's all right, that's all right, that's all right.
Sometimes you feel like trouble, sometimes you feel down.
Let this music relax you mind, let this music relax you mind.
Stand up and be counted, can't get a witness.
Sometimes you need somebody, if you have somebody to love.
Sometimes you ain't got nobody and you want somebody to love.
Then you don't want to walk and talk about Jesus,
you just want to see His face.
You don't want to walk and talk about Jesus,
you just want to see His face.

Let It Loose (Jagger/Richards)

Who's that woman on your arm all dressed up to do you harm?
And I'm hip to what she'll do, give her just about a month or two.
Bit off more than I can chew and I knew what it was leading to,
some things, well, I can't refuse,
one of them, one of them the bedroom blues.
She delivers right on time, I can't resist a corny line,
but take the shine right off you shoes,
carryin', carryin' the bedroom blues.
Oo...

In the bar you're getting drunk, I ain't in love, I ain't in luck.
Hide the switch and shut the light, let it all come down tonight.
Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger,
some face you'll never see no more.

Let it all come down tonight.
Keep those tears hid out of sight, let it loose, let it all come down.

All Down The Line (Jagger/Richards)

Yeah, heard the diesel drumming all down the line.
Oh, heard the wires a humming all down the line.
Yeah, hear the women sighing all down the line.
Oh, hear the children crying all down the line.

(All down the line) We'll be watching out for trouble, yeah.
(All down the line) And we'd better keep the motor running, yeah.
(All down the line) Well, you can't say yes and you can't say no,
just be right there when the whistle blows.
I need a sanctified girl with a sanctified mind to help me now.

Yeah, all the people singing all down the line.
Mmmm, watch the men all working, working, yeah. (All down the line)

(All down the line) We're gonna open up the throttle yeah.
(All down the line) We're gonna bust another bottle, yeah.
(All down the line)

I need a shot of salvation, baby, once in a while.
Hear the whistle blowing, hear it for a thousand miles.

(All down the line) We're gonna open up the throttle, yeah.
All down the line, We're gonna bust another bottle, yeah.
Well you can't say yes, and you can't say no,
just be right there when the whistle blows.
I need a sanctified mind to help me out right now.

Be my little baby for a while.
Won't you be my little baby for a while?

Stop Breaking Down (Robert Johnson)

Ev'ry time I'm walking all down the street
some pretty mama start breaking down on me.
Stop breaking down, baby, please, stop breaking down.
Stuff is gonna bust you brains out, baby,
gonna make you lose your mind.

You Saturday night women, now, you just ape and clown,
you don't do nothing but tear my reputation down.
Stop breaking down, mama, please, stop breaking down.
Stuff is gonna bust you brains out, baby,
yeah, it's gonna make you lose your mind.

I love my baby ninety nine degrees,
but that mama got a pistol, laid it down on me.
Stop breaking down, baby, please, stop breaking down.
Stuff is gonna bust you brains out, baby,
yeah, gonna make you lose your mind.

Ev'ry time I'm walking all down the street
some pretty woman start breaking down on me.
Stop breaking down, mama, please, stop breaking down.
Stuff is gonna bust your brains out, baby,
gonna make you lose your mind.

Shine A Light (Jagger/Richards)

Saw you stretched out in room ten-o-nine
With a smile on your face
And a tear right in your eye
Couldn't see to get a line on you
My sweet honey love
Berber jew'lry jangling down the street
Make you shut your eyes at ev'ry woman that you meet
Could not seem to get high on you
My sweet honey love

May the good Lord shine a light on you
Make every song your favorite tune
May the good Lord shine a light on you
Warm like the evening sun

Well, you're drunk in the alley, baby
With your clothes all torn
And your late night friends
Leave you in the cold grey dawn
Just seemed too many flies on you
I just can't brush them off

Angels beating all their wings in time
With smiles on their faces
And a gleam right in their eyes
Thought I heard one sigh for you
Come on up, come on up, now
Come on up, now

May the good Lord shine a light on you
Make every song you sing your favourite tune
May the good Lord shine a light on you
Warm like the evening sun

Soul Survivor (Jagger/Richards)

When the waters is rough,
the sailing is tough,
I'll get drowned in your love
You've got a cut throat crew,
I'm gonna sink under you,
I got the bell bottom blues,
it's gonna be the death of me
It's the graveyard watch,
running right on the rocks,
I've taken all of the knocks
You ain't giving me no quarter
I'd rather drink sea water,
I wish I'd never had brought you,
it's gonna be the death of me

Soul survivor, soul survivor
Soul survivor, soul survivor
Soul survivor, soul survivor
Soul survivor, soul survivor,
gonna be the death of me,
it's gonna be the death of me

When you're flying your flags
all my confidence sags,
you got me packing my bags
I'll stowaway at sea,
you make me mutiny,
where you are I won't be,
you're gonna be the death of me |

Plundered My Soul 
(Jagger/Richards)

Can you believe it,
I've won no medals
In this love game.
I've been resting on my laurels,
I'm a bad loser,
I'm a yard off my pace.

I smell rubber
And I soon discover
That you're gone for good.
My indiscretions
Made a bad impression,
Guess I was misunderstood.

I thought you needed my lovin',
But it's my heart that you stole.
I thought you wanted my money,
But you plundered my soul.
(Plundered my soul)

I started askin' around,
But your friends'
Pretty lips were sealed.
I wrote a letter
Full of trite confessions
About wounds that heal.

I heard some gossip,
You'd become an alcoholic,
You were dryin' out.
So I phoned every clinic
In the Yellow Pages,
Not a trace I found.

I thought you needed my lovin',
But it's my heart that you stole.
I thought you wanted my money,
But you plundered my soul.
(Plundered my soul)

I hate quittin',
But I'm close to admittin'
I'm a sorry case.
But on quiet reflection,
My sad rejection's
Not a total disgrace.

But I do miss your quick repartee
And the smile
That lights up your face.
You'll be a hard act to follow,
A bitter pill to swallow,
You'll be tough, you'll be tough to replace.

I thought you wanted my lovin',
But it's my heart that you stole.
You were a trick up my sleeve,
My ace in the hole.
I thought you wanted my money,
But you plundered my soul.

Oh, plundered my soul
Oh yeah (plundered my soul)
You plundered my soul
Yeah, yeah (plundered my soul)
Oh, yes, yes, yes you, baby
(Plundered my soul)

Good Time Women
(Jagger/Richards)

Oh, you got me waiting on a big-boat line, yes,
it's down a bumpy road,
I said now, now honey, you don't need money,
and you know you got it easy at home.

Yeah we're gonna get down to boat line,
We're gonna steamboat and a rail alright,
I said now, now honey, get down honey,
good time women don't keep you waiting around.

Yeah we gonna land in New York City with whiskey and mighty fine,
Now, I brought downers and a bouquet and a bottle of dry, white wine,
Yes you got me dizzy, yes you got me fizzy and you know you
gonna die with your wine,
Baby, baby, red light woman, they don't leave you.

Yeah! Aaaaaaaaaaahha

Yeah you got me waiting on a big boat-line.
Yeah you're gonna feel alright, I said baby, honey,
you know it's gonna be alright.

Yeah you got me dizzy, and you got me fizzy,
Iím gonna dance, yes up your wine,
I said baby baby.

The red light women, like to party,
The red light women, sure like to party,
The red light woman, please don't party all night,
Alright, you got me crying now, ah you got me crying.
Yeah!
Ah you got me crying
Yes, they like your party all night
Yes, they like your party all night, ahhh
Yes, they like your party all night, oh honey
Yes, they like your party all night, oh baby
Night night night night night night
Ay ay ay ay ay

So Divine (Aladdin Story)
(Jagger/Richards)

You think you've got me in your chains
Control me with your devious pain

You think your love is so divine
You pour it out like it was heaven-scented wine
You think your love is all I crave
Well I've got better things to do than be your slave

When you first asked me, I heard those violins
You quickly pulled the pin, you had no hesitation

There is a rose that bears your name
The bloom's short-lived, it's such a shame

You think your love is so divine
You think I'll drink it like it's heaven-scented wine
You think your love is all I crave
You say I'll worship you till I'm in my grave

So when love passed the ball, you play winner takes it all
Act like it's a carnival, some mad configuration
Iím like a two-way street, you live to lie and cheat
I'm voting with my feet, who needs this aggravation

I'm headed for the door, never see you anymore
I'll be on some distant shore, way out of circulation
No tears will pass my eye, no memory will make me cry
So long, adios, goodbye, I'm off your reservation

Ah yeah!

You think your love is so divine
Think you're the saviour of mankind
You say your love is like love potion number nine

You say your love is all I crave, and I'm the dog that's had its day
So sad to rain on your parade
But I've got better things to do than be your slave

Dancing In The Light
(Jagger/Richards)

I'm sitting in the darkness, you're dancing in the light
You really hit the big time, I really took a dive
I'm running in the rain, you're dancing in the light
I'm waiting for the train, that never will arrive

You left me twisting in the wind, dangling in the night
You'll be Mr. Christian and I'll be Captain Bligh
Look at you with your face all shining, got some new work and some realigning
Now that your nose got some redefining, you look like a million bucks

I got a sinking feeling, you and your wheeling dealing
I'm going to hit the ceiling, bang the ground with a bump

My whole world is crashing, I took a violent thrashing
Something to thrown the trash in, I'm in the garbage dump

What'd I ever do? You treat me so bad
You're living in a penthouse, my flat is dark and damp
Yeah, what's the matter, baby? We used to be so tight
I'm living in the gloom, while you're dancing in the light

Yeah, I got that sinking feeling, whose potatoes are you peeling?
Can't you hear my poor heart squealing? I'm in the garbage dump

Yeah, ah what' s happening?
Yeah

You're lying in the sunshine, I'm hanging in a cloud
You're basking in the spotlight, I'm lost in the crowds, yes

What am I gonna do about you?
What am I gonna do?
What am I gonna do about you?
What am I gonna do?

I don't have a clue without you
What am I gonna do?
I'm in a dark place, baby
I've got to, I've got to wear a grim face, baby

You've got me with the heartaches, yeah
Get me out of the dark place
What am I gonna do without you? What am I gonna do?

If I was your new boyfriend, I would have stage fright
While you're riding in a limo, I'm wheeling my bike, yeah

What am I gonna do without you?
What am I gonna do?
What am I gonna do without you?
What am I gonna do?

Oh yeah, Oh yeah
Dancing in the light, Oh!
Yeah, oh yeah!....

I'm Not Signifying
(Jagger/Richards)

When I'm looking out my window baby
And I'm standing by my door
Have you ever had the feeling baby
That you've been here before

When you're riding motorcycle baby
In your graveyard world
Have you ever had the feeling baby
That you've been here before

Honey I've been lying
Honey I've been jiving
Honey I've been signifying
Whoa, whoa, whoa

When you're lyring on the ceiling baby
And I'm gazing on your floor
Have you ever had the feeling baby
That you've been here before

Honey I've been lying
Honey I've been jiving
And I ain't signifying
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa

 

Following The River
(Jagger/Richards)

There's something I should tell you
Why don't you sit there in that chair
You're looking good today
I love the way your comb's tucked in your hair

My cards are on the table, but the drinks have all run out
There's been some other lads in this room with me, we're really quite a crowd
It's hard to break it gently, but I really thought it through
I don't think there's much future left, for me and you, me and you

I've been following the river, til it joins hands with the sea.
I've been thinking of you so bad
Cause you always saw the best in me

You'll probably forget me, and I'll fade back in the bar
Just a face disappearing without trace, I'll be lost, I'll be lost

One day I'll hear some laughter in a out-of-town cafe
I'll be reaching for your number - I'll be calling out your name, calling out your name

I've been following that river, gonna join hands with the sea
I've been thinking of ya all the time
Cause you always brought the best in me
I'll be following the river - oh my! Till it spills out in the sea

When I first think about ya, oh dear
Cause you always brought the best in me (always brought the best in me)
I'll be following the river (yeah!)
Gonna join hands with the sea

Ah, if I can't have ya, I'll be dreaming all about ya
Cause you always brought the best in me
I'll be following the river, gonna join hands with the sea

I'll be thinking about ya, cause you always brought the best in me

Pass The Wine (Sophia Loren)
(Jagger/Richards)

Walking down the street with a sad face
Always complaining about the rat race
Nobody said that life was free and easy

Your job it sucks, itís on the line
Your wife act mean, your kids all crying
I need something thatís guaranteed to please me

But listen, Iíll tell you

Iím glad to be alive and kicking
Iím glad to hear my heartís still ticking
So pass me the wine, baby, and letís make some love

Sometimes things donít work out the way you want
I donít know if Iím gonna laugh or cry

Your friends will never call you back
Youíre feeling such a sad sack
Like some snack thatís gone all cold and greasy, yes

The car you drive a rusty wreck
Itís always you that pays the check
Who said life was warm and peachy?

But listen, yeah, Iíll tell you
Iím glad to be alive and kicking
My blood is up, my pulse is quickening
Pass the wine bowl but letís make some love

Sometimes things donít work out the way you want
I wonder why, I wonder why - ah yeah
Sometimes mistakes come back to haunt you, babe
And I donít know whether to laugh or cry, yeah

Yeah, come on
Got to be alive and kicking
Glad to be alive and kicking
Glad to have a pot to piss in
Glad to be alive and kicking

You got to be alive and kicking
Got to be... come on...come on....

Got to be alive and kicking
Got to be alive and kicking
Glad to see the plot is thickening
Pass the wine, letís make some love
Letís make some love
Letís make some love
Letís make some love
