The Rolling Stones lyrics - Album: Between the Buttons [1967]

Let's Spend The Night Together

(Jagger/Richards)

My, My, My, My

Don't you worry 'bout what's on your mind (Oh my)

I'm in no hurry I can take my time (Oh my)

I'm going red and my tongue's getting tied (tongues's getting tied)

I'm off my head and my mouth's getting dry.

I'm high, But I try, try, try (Oh my)

Let's spend the night together

Now I need you more than ever

Let's spend the night together now

I feel so strong that I can't disguise (oh my)

Let's spend the night together

But I just can't apologize (oh no)

Let's spend the night together

Don't hang me up just to let me down (don't let me down)

We could have fun just groovin' around around and around

Let's spend the night together

Now I need you more than ever

Let's spend the night together

Let's spend the night together

Now I need you more than ever

You know I'm smiling baby

You need some guiding baby

Now I need you more than ever

Let's spend the night together

Let's spend the night together now

This doesn't happen to me ev'ryday (oh my)

Let's spend the night together

No excuses offered anyway (oh my)

Let's spend the night together

I'll satisfy your every need (every need)

And I now know you will satisfy me

Let's spend the night together

Now I need you more than ever

Let's spend the night together now

Yesterday's Papers


(Jagger/Richards)

who wants yesterdays papers

who wants yesterdays girl

who wants yesterdays papers

nobody in the world

after this time i finally learned

after the pain and hurt

after all this what have i achieved

i've realized it's time to leave

cause

who wants yesterdays papers

who wants yesterdays girl

who wants yesterdays papers

nobody in the world

Living a life of constant change

every day means the turn of a page

yesterdays papers are such bad news

same thing applies to me and you

who wants yesterdays papers

who wants yesterdays girl

who wants yesterdays papers

nobody in the world

seems very hard to have just one girl

when there's a million in the world

all of these people just can't wait

to fall right into their big mistake

who wants yesterdays papers

who wants yesterdays girl

who wants yesterdays papers

nobody in the world

Ruby Tuesday


(Jagger/Richards)

She would never say where she came from

Yesterday don't matter when it's gone

While the sun is bright

Or in the darkest night

No one knows

She comes and goes

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you?

When you smile with every new day

Still I'm gonna miss you...

Don't question why she needs to be so free

She'll tell you it's the only way to be

She just can't be chained

To a life where nothing's gained

And nothing's lost

At such a cost

There's no time to lose, I heard her say

Catch your dreams before they slip away

Dying all the time

Lose your dreams

And you will lose your mind.

Ain't life unkind?

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday

Who could hang a name on you?

When you smile with every new day

Still I'm gonna miss you...

Connection


(Jagger/Richards)

all i want to do is get back to you

Connection, I just can't make no connection.

But all I want to do is to get back to you.

Everything is going in the wrong direction.

The doctor wants to give me more injections.

Giving me shots for a thousand rare infections

And I don't know if he'll let me go

Connection, I just can't make no connection.

But all I want to do is to get back to you.

Connection, I just can't make it, connection

But all I want to do is to get back to you.

My bags they get a very close inspection.

I wonder why it is that they suspect 'em

They're dying to add me to their collection

And I don't know if they'll let me go

Connection, I just can't make no connection.

But all I want to do is to get back to you.

Connection, I just can't make no connection.

But all I want to do is to get back to you.

She Smiled Sweetly


(Jagger/Richards)

Why do my thoughts loom so large on me?

They seem to stay, for day after day

And won't disappear, I've tried every way

But she smiled sweetly

She smiled sweetly

She smiled sweetly

And says don't worry

Oh, no no no

Where does she hide it inside of her?

That keeps her peace most every day

And won't disappear, my hair's turning grey

But she smiled sweetly

She smiled sweetly

She smiled sweetly

And says don't worry

Oh, no no no

"There's nothing in why or when

There's no use trying, you're here

Begging again, and ov'r again"

That's what she said so softly

I understood for once in my life

And feeling good most all of the time

But she smiled sweetly

She smiled sweetly

She smiled sweetly

And said don't worry

Oh, no no no

Oh, no no no

Oh, no no no

Cool, Calm & Collected


(Jagger/Richards)

well she's very wealthy it's true

so in that she is one up one you

she's dressed all in red, white and blue

and she always knows more than you do

she's so affected

cool, calm, collected

she knows who to smile to today

she has just been brought up in that way

she knows all the right games to play

and she always just knows what to say

she's well respected

cool, calm, collected

she's so affected

cool, calm, collected

in public the strain's heard to bear

she exudes such a confident air

but behind she is not without care

but she sweeps it right under her hair

she's well respected

cool, calm, collected

she seems to glow brilliantly white

and her hair seems to shine in the night

with her feet unbelievably light

and her teeth ready, sharpened to bite

she's so respected

cool, calm, collected

All Sold Out


(Jagger/Richards)

Why put this sadness inside of me

why be so matter-of-fact

why put this one bit of hope in me

you sold me out and that's that

I hope that you're having fun with me

there's not much left to attack

i hope that you're nearly done with me

you sold me out and that's that

all sold out i'd never seen

a mind so tangled, a girl so strangled

all sold out well i felt so green

it was just like that

i was put down flat

i was sold out just like that

oh baby

all sold out i'd never seen

a mind so tangled, a girl so strangled

all sold out well i felt so green

it was just like that

i was put down flat

i was sold out just like that

i missed the point of you doing it

your mind has just jumped the track

i took a bit different view of it

you sold me out and that's that

hey hey, that's that

My Obsession


(Jagger/Richards)

my obsession

your possessions

every piece that i can get

my obsessions are

your possessions

my mouth is soaking wet

i think i blew it now, confession

can't dodge it, it's simple logic

Youd be better off with me and you'll know it

when you lost it, lonely (?)

my obsession are

your possesion

are you smiling on my way

my obsession are

your possession

one that you should give away

give it to me now i've no objection

i don't mind if it's unkind

and it's not my property

but i want it just to be mine, exclusively

oooh baby, ooh baby

oooh baby, oooh baby

oooh baby, oooh baby

oooh baby, oooh baby

aaahhhh

You need teaching you're a girl

there are things in this world

that need teaching with discretion, my profession

my obsessions are

your possessions

are you used to the idea

my obsessions are

your possessions

do you feel at home right here

you should relax it's my impression

didn't see you were so young

i could almost be your son

please turn in my direction, no objection

Who's Been Sleeping Here


(Jagger/Richards)

what you say girl, you see what is wrong

you, must be joking, you was led alone

but the butler the baker, the laughing cavalier

will tell me now, who's been sleeping here

i want to know

tell me baby, who's been sleeping here

what you say girl, who'd you see that night

i was doing, doing something right

oh the soldier, the sailor then there's the three muskateers

yes, they'll now tell me now, who's been sleeping here

did i ever tell you i want to know

hey baby, who's been sleeping here

don't you look like, like a goldilocks

there must be somewhere, somewhere you can stop

yes there's the noseless old newsboy the old british brigadier

but you'll tell me now, who's been sleeping here

who's been eating, eating off my plate

who will tell me, who'll investigate

there's the seargeants the soldiers the cruel old grenadiers

but they'll tell me, now, who's been sleeping here

cause i want to know who's been sleeping right here

was it your mummy, your daddy, who's been sleeping here

was it your auntie, your uncle, who's been sleeping here

was it your boyfriend, your girlfriend, who's been sleeping here

Complicated


(Jagger/Richards)

she looks so simple in her way

does the same thing everyday

but she's dedicated

to having her own way

she's very complicated

yeah

women seem to fill her mind

and many men in so short time

but she's underrated

she treats me oh so kind

she's very complicated

yeah

we talk together and discuss

what is really best for us

she's sophisticated

my head's fit to bust

cause she's so complicated

she knows just how to please her man

Softer than a baby lamb

but she's educated

doesn't give a damn

she's very complicated

she looks so simple in her way

does the same thing everyday

but she's dedicated

to having her own way

she's very complicated

Miss Amanda Jones


(Jagger/Richards)

down and down she goes

aw, Amanda Jones

i said down and down and down and down

she'd look really lovely at home

til somebody gonna come up and ask her

to live happily ever after, Miss amanda jones

on and on she goes

little miss amanda jones

i said on and on and on and on

just watch her as she grow

don't wanna say it very obviously

but she's losing her nobility, miss amanda jones

hey girl don't you realize

the money invested in you

hey girl you just got to find

someone who'll really pull your family through

up and up she goes

hone amanda jones

i said up and up and up and up

she looks quite delightfully stoned

she's the darling of the discotheque crowd

of her lineage she's rightfully proud, miss amanda

jones

hey girl with your nonsense nose

all pointing right down at the floor

hey girl your suspender shows

and the girl behind you looks a bit unsure

round and round she goes

the world of amanda jones

i said round and round and round and round

the balls and the dinners and show

the little girl she just wanders about

til it's time for her coming out, miss amanda jones

round and round and round

round and round and round....

Something Happened To Me Yesterday


(Jagger/Richards)

something happened to me yesterday

something i can't speak of right away

something happened to me

something oh so groovy

something happened to me yesterday

he don't know if it's right or wrong

maybe he should tell someone

he's not sure just what it was

or if it's against the law

something

something very strange i hear you say

you're talking in a most peculiar way

but something really threw me

something oh so groovy

something happend to me yesterday

(yesterday)

he don't know just where it's gone

he don't really care at all

no one's sure just what it was

or the meaning and the cause

something

(take your partners)

he don't know if it's right or wrong

maybe he should tell someone

he's not sure just what it was

or if it's against the law

something

someone says there's something more to pay

for sins that you committed yesterday

it's really rather drippy

but something oh so trippy

something happened to me yesterday

he don't know just where it's gone

he don't really care at all

no one's sure just what it was

or the meaning and the cause

something

someone's singing loud across the bay

sittin on a mat about to pray

isn't half as looney

as something oh so groovy

something happened to me yesterday

he don't know if it's right or wrong

maybe he should tell someone

he's not sure just what it was

or if it's against the law

something

(spoken)

well thank you very much and now I think it's time for us

all to go. so from all of us to all of you not forgetting

the boys in the band and our producer, Reg Thorpe,

We'd like to say "God Bless". So, if you're out tonight,

don't forget, if you're on your bike, wear white. amen.
