The Rolling Stones lyrics - Album: Their Satanic Majestic's Request [1967]

Sing This All Together

(Jagger/Richards)

Why don't we sing this song all together

open our heads let the pictures come

and if we close all our eyes together

then we will see where we all come from

pictures of us through the steamy haze

picture of us painted in our place

Why don't we sing this song all together

open our heads let the pictures come

and if we close all our eyes together

then we will see where we all come from

Why don't we sing this song all together

open our heads let the pictures come

and if we close all our eyes together

then we will see where we all come from

pictures of us beating on our drum

never stopping til the rain has come

Why don't we sing this song all together

open our heads let the pictures come

and if we close all our eyes together

then we will see where we all come from

Citadel


(Jagger/Richards)

Men are armed shout who goes there

we have journeyed far from here

armed with bibles make us swear

candy and taffy, hope we both are well

please come see me in the citadel

flags are flying, dollar bills

round the heights of concrete hills

you can see the pinnacles

candy and taffy, hope we both are well

please come see me in the citadel

in the streets are many walls

hear the peasants come and crawl

you can hear their lovers call

candy and taffy, hope we both are well

please come see me in the citadel

screaming people fly so fast

In their shiny metal cars

throug the woods of steel and glass

candy and taffy, hope we both are well

please come see me in the citadel

In Another Land


(Wyman)

In another land where the breeze and the

trees and flowers were blue

I stood and held your hand.

And the grass grew high and the feathers floated by

I stood and held your hand.

And nobody else's hand will ever do

Nobody else will do

Then I awoke

Was this some kind of joke?

Much to my surprise

I opened my eyes.

We walked across the sand and the sea and

the sky and the castles were blue.

I stood and held your hand.

And the spray flew high and the feathers floated by

I stood and held your hand.

And nobody else's hand will ever do

Nobody else will do

Then I awoke

Was this some kind of joke?

Much to my surprise

When I opened my eyes.

We heard the trumpets blow and the sky

turned red when I accidently said

That I didn't know how I came to be here

not fast asleep in bed.

I stood and held your hand.

And nobody else's hand will ever do

Nobody else's hand

Then I awoke

Was this some kind of joke?

I opened my eyes.

Much to my surprise.

2,000 Man


(Jagger/Richards)

Well, my name is a number

a piece of plastic film

And I'm growin' funny flowers

In my little window sill

Dont you know I'm a 2,000 man

And my kids, they just don't understand me at all

well my wife still respects me

I really misused her

I am having an affair

With the Random computer

don't you know I'm a 2,000 man

And my kids, they just don't understand me at all

Oh daddy, proud of your planet

Oh mummy, proud of your sun

Oh daddy, proud of your planet

Oh mummy. proud of your sun

Oh daddy, your brain's still flashin'

Like it did when you were young

Or do you come down crashin'

Seeing all the things you'd done

All was a big put on

Oh daddy, proud of your planet

Oh mummy. proud of your sun

Oh daddy, proud of your planet

Oh mummy. proud of your sun

Oh daddy, proud of your planet

Oh mummy. proud of your sun

Oh daddy, proud of your planet

Oh mummy. proud of your sun

And you know who's the 2000 man

and your kids they just won't understand you at all

Sing This All Together (See What Happens)


(Jagger/Richards)

Why don't we sing this song all together

open our minds let the pictures come

and if we close all our eyes together

then we will see where we all come from

Pictures of us in the circling sun

pictures of the show that we're all one

She's A Rainbow


(Jagger/Richards)

She comes in colors ev'rywhere;

She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

She comes in colors ev'rywhere;

She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

Have you seen her dressed in blue?

See the sky in front of you

And her face is lik a sail

Speck of white so fair and pale

Have you seen a lady fairer?

She comes in colors ev'rywhere;

She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

Have you seen her all in gold?

Like a queen in days of old

She shoots her colors all around

Like a sunset going down

Have you seen a lady fairer?

She comes in colors ev'rywhere;

She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

The Lantern


(Jagger/Richards)

We, on our present life,

Knew that the stars were right.

That if you are the first to go,

You'll leave a sign to let me know,

Tell me so.

Please, carry the Lantern lights.

You crossed the sea of night,

Free from the spell of fright

Your cloak it is a spirit shroud.

You'll wake me in my sleeping hours,

Like a cloud.

So, please, carry the Lantern high.

Me, in my sorry plight,

You waiting ev'ry night.

My face it turns a deathly pale,

You're talking to me, through your veil,

I hear you wail.

So, please carry the Lantern light.

The servants sleep,

The door's are barred.

You hear the stopping of my heart-we never part.

So, please carry the Lantern high.

Gomper


(Jagger, Richards)

By the lake with lilly flowers

wallow away the evening hours

to and fro she's gently gliding

on the glassy lake she's riding

she swims to the side

the sun sees her dried

the birds hover high

I'd stifle a cry

the birds hover high

she moans with a sigh

2000 Light Years From Home


(Jagger/Richards)

Sun turnin' '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

Freezing red deserts turn to dark

Energy here in every part

It's so very lonely, you're six hundred light years from home

It's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home

It's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home

Bell flight fourteen you now can land

Seen you on Aldebaran, safe on the green desert sand

It's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home

It's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home

On With The Show


(Jagger/Richards)

Good evening one and all we're all so glad to see you here

we'll play your favorite songs while you're all so happy atmosphere

we'll start with over river, then maybe stormy weather, too

i'm sure you know just what to do

on with the show good health to you

please pour another glass it time to watch the cabaret

your wife will never know that you're not really working late

your hostess here is Wendy, you'll find her very friendly, too

and we don't care just what you do

on with the show good health to you

Petina(?), start the show at 2 o'clock

Oh if by chance you find that you can't make it anymore

we'll put you in a cab and get you safely to the door

but we've got all the answers, and we've got lovely dancers, too

there's nothing else you have to do

on with the show good health to you

you're all such lovely people dancing, eating round the floor

but if you have to fight, please take your trouble out the door

for now I say with sorrow, until this time tomorrow

we'll bid you all a find adieu

on with the show good health to you
