BEST LYRICS

Here is my favorite lyrics from the Stones. There's just so many great songs, some songs like Honky Tonk Woman, Sympathy For The Devil, Rip This Joint and Far Away Eyes, to name a few, have so many great verses tied into one another that it can be hard to pick what verse you love best. If you are looking for the complete lyrics to any Stones song go here.  
 


 

From.......... Happy

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset, it always burned a hole in my pants.

From............ Sympathy for the Devil 

I watched in glee as your Kings and Queens fought for ten decades for the gods they made

I rode a tank, held a general's rank when the blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank! (woo, woo, who, who!)
 

From.......... Honky Tonk Woman

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.
 

From.......... Before They Make Me Run

Only a crowd can make you feel so alone and it really hit home

Gonna find my way to heaven, 'cause I did my time in hell.

From.......... Rocks Off

I was making love last night to a dancer friend of mine. I can't seem to stay in step, 'cause she come every time that she pirouettes over me.
 
The sunshine bores the daylights out of me.
      
Your mouth don't move but I can hear you speak.

From................... Tumbling Dice

Women think I'm tasty, but they're always tryin' to waste me and make me burn the candle right down

From........... Let it Bleed

There will always be a space in my parking lot when you need a little coke and sympathy

From ................Midnight Rambler

I'm gonna smash down all your plate glass windows, put a fist, put a fist through your steel-plated door
 
I'll stick my knife right down your throat Baby, and it hurts!


From............. No Expectations

You throw your pearls at swine

From................... Street Fighting Man

I'll shout & scream, I'll kill the king and rail at all his servants!
 

 From.............. Ruby Tuesday

Catch your dreams before they slip away
  
Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you will lose your mind, ain't life unkind.

From................. Mothers Little Helper

So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak

Doctor please, some more of these, outside the door, she took four more

From.................... 19th Nervous Breakdown

Your the kind of person you meet at certain dismal, dull affairs, center of the crowd, talking much to loud, running up & down the stairs

From............ Start Me Up

You make a dead man cum

From ................Brown Sugar

Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields, sold in a market down in New Orleans, scarred old slaver knows he's doing alright, hear him whip the women just around midnight
 

From...............Far Away Eyes

I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield, listening to gospel music on the colored radio station, and the preacher said, "You know you always have the Lord by your side", and I was so pleased to be informed of this that I ran twenty red lights in his honor.
Thank you Jesus, thank you lord

From............... Shattered

People dressed in plastic bags, directing traffic, some kind of fashion
                                        
You got rats on the west side, bed bugs uptown, what a mess, this town's in tatters

From .....................Fingerprint File

There's some little jerk in the FBI,  A keepin' papers on me six feet high

From............ Emotional Rescue

I will be your knight in shining armour, riding across the desert with a fine Arab charger
 

From..............Rip this Joint

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.

From............... Flip the Switch

Lethal injection is a luxury, I wanna give it to the whole jury

From............. Jumping Jack Flash

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane, and I howled at my ma in the driving rain
                     
I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag
                      
It's a gas, gas, gas!

From ..................Dead Flowers

Well when you're sitting back in your rose pink Cadillac, making bets on Kentucky Derby Day, I'll be in my basement room with a needle and a spoon, and another girl to take my pain away

From............ Starfucker

Yeah, I heard about your Polaroid's, now that's what I call obscene
Your tricks with fruit was kind a cute, I bet it keeps your pussy clean

Ali McGraw got mad with you for givin' head to Steve McQueen

Yeah,  I'll make bets that you gonna get John Wayne before he dies

From............Monkey Man

I'm a fleabit peanut monkey, all my friends are junkies, that's not really true


I was bitten by a boar, I was gouged and I was gored, but I pulled on through

From..............2000 Light Years From Home

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
