The Rolling Stones lyrics - Album: Aftermath [1966]

Paint It Black

(M. Jagger/K. 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 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!

Stupid Girl


(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I'm not talking about the kind of clothes she wears

Look at that stupid girl

I'm not talking about the way she combs her hair

Look at that stupid girl

The way she powders her nose

Her vanity shows and it shows

She's the worst thing in this world

Well, look at that stupid girl

I'm not talking about the way she digs for gold

Look at that stupid girl

Well, I'm talking about the way she grabs and holds

Look at that stupid girl

The way she talks about someone else

That she don't even know herself

She's the sickest thing in this world

Well, look at that stupid girl

Well, I'm sick and tired

And I really have my doubts

I've tried and tried

But it never really works out

Like a lady in waiting to a virgin queen

Look at that stupid girl

She bitches 'bout things that she's never seen

Look at that stupid girl

It doesn't matter if she dyes her hair

Or the color of the shoes she wears

She's the worst thing in this world

Well, look at that stupid girl

Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up

Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up

Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up

Like a lady in waiting to a virgin queen

Look at that stupid girl

She bitches 'bout things that she's never seen

Look at that stupid girl

She purrs like a pussycat

Then she turns 'round and hisses back

She's the sickest thing in this world

Look at that stupid girl

Lady Jane


(M. Jagger/K. 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 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

Under My Thumb


(M. Jagger/K. 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

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.

Doncha Bother Me


(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more."

I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more."

Well I'm looking for my face

And I got no place to go

I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more."

I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more."

Well, pick your own mind

And don't you touch mine no more

Still waiting here for a single idea

In your clothes and your hair

I wore it last year

Oh no, doncha follow me no more

I said, "Oh no, doncha copy me no more."

I said, "Oh no, doncha copy me no more."

Well, the lines around my eyes

are protected by a copyright law

Well, all the clubs and the bars

And the little red cars

Not knowing why, but trying to get high

Oh no, doncha follow me no more

Doncha follow

Doncha follow

Think


(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I'm givin' you a piece of my mind.

There no charge of any kind.

Try a very simple test.

You should just retrace your steps.

And think back, back a little bit baby.

Back, back alright.

Think, think, think back baby.

Think, think back a bit girl.

Think, think, think back baby.

Tell me who's fault was that, babe?

Tell me who's fault was that, babe?

Think about a year ago.

How we lived I'll never know.

Connin' people for a dime.

Here's another piece of my mind.

And think back, back a little bit baby.

Back, back alright.

Think, think, think back baby.

Think, think back a bit girl.

Think, think, think back baby.

Tell me who's fault was that, babe?

Tell me who's fault was that, babe?

Take a look inside yourself.

You're not really someone else.

Still, I am the same old me.

You say I lack maturity.

But think back, back a little bit baby.

Back, back, alright!

We're not children anymore.

We don't need to play with toys.

Take a look and you will find

you're gettin' old before your time.

But think back, back a little bit baby.

Back, back alright.

Think, think, think back baby.

Think, think I said back a bit girl.

Think, think, think back baby.

Tell me who's fault was that, babe?

Tell me who's fault was that, babe?

I said think.

You'd better think back a little bit.

I said think.

What about last year and the year before?

I said think.

You promised me so much.

I said think.

Doncha 'member what you said?

Flight 505


(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Well, I was happy here at home

I got everything I need.

Happy bein' on my own

Just living the life I lead.

Well, suddenly it dawned on me

That this was not my life.

So I just phoned the airline girl

And said, "Get me on flight number 505,

Get me on flight number 505."

Well, I confirmed my reservation.

Then I hopped a cab.

No idea of my destination

And feeling pretty bad.

With my suitcase in my hand.

In my head, my new life.

So then I told the airline girl

"Well, get me on flight number 505,

Get me on flight number 505."

Alright.

Well, I sat right there in my seat.

Well, feeling like a king.

With the whole world right at my feet.

"Of course I'll have a drink!"

Well, suddenly I saw

That we never ever would arrive.

He put the plane down in the sea.

The end of flight number 505.

The end of flight number 505.

Alright.

Whew, they put the plane down in the sea.

The end of flight number 505.

The end of flight number 505.

High And Dry


(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

High and dry well, I'm up here with no warning

High and dry well, I couldn't get a word in

High and dry oh, what a way to go

She left me standing here just high and dry

A minute I was up there standing by her side

The next I was down there, well, left out of the ride and

High and dry oh, what a way to go

She left me standing here just high and dry

Anythin' I wished for I only had to ask her (yep)

I think she found out it was money I was after

High and dry oh, what a weird letdown

She left me standing here just high and dry

Alright

It's lucky that I didn't have any love towards her

Next time I'll make sure that the girl'll be much poorer

High and dry oh, what a way to go

She left me standing here just high and dry

High and dry well, I'm up here with no warnin'

Yep

High and dry well, I couldn't get a word in

High and dry oh, what a way to go

She left me standin' here just high and dry

Well, she left me standin' here just high and dry

Well, she left me standin' here just high and dry

Hey!

It's Not Easy


(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

It's not easy

It's not easy living on your own

It's not easy

It's not easy living on your own

And it's hard (it's not easy)

And it's hard (it's not easy)

And it's a pretty hard thing (it's not easy)

It's not easy living on your own

All of the things that you used to do

If they're done now, well they're done by you

It seems a big failing in a man

To take his girl for granted if he can

And it's hard thing (it's not easy)

And it's hard (it's not easy)

And it's a pretty hard thing (it's not easy)

It's not easy livin' on your own

There's no place where you can call home

Got me running like a cat in a thunderstorm

Just a big bed and a telephone

Like the last remnants of a stately home

And it's a pretty hard thing (it's not easy)

And it's hard (it's not easy)

Well, it's a pretty hard thing (it's not easy)

It's not easy livin' on your own

And it's hard (it's not easy)

And it's hard (it's not easy)

And it's a pretty hard thing (it's not easy)

It's not easy living on your own

Sit here thinking with your head of fire

Go think the same thing and never tire

Imaginin' the glow of her long clean hair

As she goes to sit on her own high chair

And it's hard thing (it's not easy)

Well, it's a pretty hard thing (it's not easy)

Well, it's hard babe (it's not easy)

It's not easy livin' on your own

It's not easy (a pretty tough thing)

It's not easy (well, life pretty rough)

It's not easy (it's a hard time baby)

It's not easy (it's a hard time baby)

It's not easy (it's a pretty hard life)

I Am Waiting


(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I am waiting, I am waiting (oh yeah, oh yeah)

I am waiting, I am waiting (oh yeah, oh yeah)

Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere

Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere

You can't hold out, you can't hold out

Oh yeah, oh yeah

You can't hold out, you can't hold out

Oh yeah, oh yeah

Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere

Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere

See it come along and

don't know where it's from

Oh, yes you will find out

Well, it happens all the time

It's censored from our minds

You'll find out

Slow or fast, slow or fast

Oh yeah, oh yeah

End at last, end at last

Oh yeah, oh yeah

Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere

Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere

Stand up coming years

and escalation fears

Oh, yes we will find out

Well, like a withered stone

Fears will pierce your bones

You'll find out

Oh we're waiting, oh we're waiting

Oh yeah, oh yeah

Oh we're waiting, oh we're waiting

Oh yeah, oh yeah

Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere

Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere

Oh we're waiting, oh we're waiting

Oh we're waiting, oh were waiting...

Going Home


(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Spendin' too much time away

I can't stand another day

Maybe you think I've seen the world

But I'd rather see my girl

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home

I'm goin' home, bome, bome, bome-bome-bome,

Home, bome, bome, bome, back home

Yes, I am

All those letters ev'ry day

Maybe alright in their way

But I'd love to see your face

When I get home in their place

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home

I'm goin' home, bome, bome, bome-bome-bome,

Home, bome, bome, bome, back home

Yes, I am

Alright

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home

I'm goin' home, bome, bome, bome-bome-bome,

Home, bome, bome, bome, back home

Yes, I will

When you're three thousand miles away

I just never sleep the same

If I packed my things right now

I could be home in seven hours

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home

I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home

I'm goin' home, bome, bome, bome-bome-bome,

Home, bome, bome, bome, back home

Yes, I will

Yes, I will

See my baby, see my baby

I wanna see my girl

I just can't wait, I just can't wait

I just can't wait, I just can't wait

I just can't wait, I just can't wait

I just can't wait, I just can't wait

I just can't wait

I'll see my baby

She'll make me feel alright

Gotta see my baby

She'll make me feel so good

She'll make me feel allright

Yes she does

In the middle of the night

So good ti ti tight

Feel allright, come on baby

I'm gonna get home babe

I feel allright

I'm lookin' for my baby

I'm gonna go in the early morning

I'm gonna catch that plane

Now it won't be long, I say

Listen to me

Long time since I've seen my baby

Yes it is

It's such a long long time

Yes it is, I feel allright

I'm gonna see my baby, one more time

I get home, I gotta get home

I wanna see my darling

I wanna make sweet sweet love

In the middle of the night

Early in the morning

In the midnight hour

She'll make me feel so good

She'll make me feel allright

When she touch my hands

And that's all I gotta say

Cause I'm gonna pack my bags

I wanna see you baby

See your face

Your pretty little smile

Your pretty clothes

Hear you talk

Come on

I'm comin' home

I'll see my baby

I'm goin' home

To see your face

Makin' love to you baby

Yes it makes me feel so good

Inside

Touch me one more time

Come on little girl

You may look sweet

But I know you ain't

I know you ain't
