Lyrically peaking: Let It bleed

Gimme Shelter

Oh, a storm is threatening

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


Rape, murder!

It’s just a shot away

Let It Bleed

She said, “My breasts, they will always be open

Baby, you can rest your weary head right on me

And there will always be a space in my parking lot

When you need a little coke and sympathy”


Yeah, we all need someone we can cream on

And if you want to, well you can cream on me


Bleed it alright, bleed it alright, you can be my rider

You can cum all over me

Live With Me

My best friend, he shoots water rats

And feeds them to his geese

Don’cha think there’s a place for you

In between the sheets?


The servants they’re so helpful, dear

The cook she is a whore

Yes, the butler has a place for her

Behind the pantry door

Midnight Rambler

I’m gonna smash down all your plate glass windows

Put a fist, put a fist through your steel-plated door


If you ever catch the midnight rambler

I’ll steal your mistress from under your nose

I’ll go easy with your cold fanged anger

I’ll stick my knife right down your throat, baby

And it hurts!

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

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


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

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You get what you need
