Other Useful Rolling Stones Lyrics

There's always Sticky Fingers.

“Mick Jagger said in a song once, ‘you can’t always get what what you want. But if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need,” Pawlenty said. “For those of us who are Republicans and conservatives, we didn’t get what we wanted in the 2008 election for president but we did get something that we needed. And that is a chance to ask ‘what are the lessons from 2008 and 2006?'”

You’re the kind of person
You meet at certain dismal dull affairs.

Give me champagne when I’m thirsty
Give me a reefer when I wanna get high

When I’m drivin’ in my car
And a man comes on the radio
He’s telling me more and more
About some useless information

Oh where can I get my cock sucked?
Where can I get my ass fucked?

When you’re flying your flags
All my confidence sags,
You got me packing my bags.
I’ll stowaway at sea,
You make me mutiny,
Where you are I won’t be,
You’re gonna be the death of me.  

You let somebody do the dirty work
Find some loser, find some jerk
Find some dumb ass do it all for free

Will all your money
Buy you forgiveness
Keep you from sickness
Or keep you from cold?

You’re doing such a wonderful job
You’re a natural at working with dogs
Keeping everyone awake at night
With a touch of the prods

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul and faith

You call yourself a Christian
I think that you’re a hypocrite
You say you are a patriot
I think that you’re a crock of shit

Pawlenty Covers The Rolling Stones To Woo Young Republicans [TPM]

The sex police are out there on the streets
Make sure the pass laws are not broken
The race militia has got itchy fingers
All the way from New York back to Africa

Keep it undercover
Keep it all out of sight
Keep it undercover
Keep it all out of sight
Keep it all out of sight
Keep it all out of sight
Undercover of the night

The Rolling Stones? I like the Stones, but even I realize they’re about as relevant to youth culture as Whitesnake or New Edition.

Snort! The “young” Republicans listen to the Rolling Stones??

“Hey everybody, I jus’ heard this awesome band the yunggins like called Fleetwood Mac.”

@Original Andrew:

Heheheh. I heard about a band called “Supertramp” but they are WAYYYY to edgy for me….

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Clutch the mutherfucking pearls!!!

So you think you’re a Romeo?
Playin’ a part in a picture show.
You take the long way home.
You take the long way home.

You’re the joke of the neighborhood,
What do you care if you’re feeling good?
You took the long way home.
You took the long way home.

(violins and other stuff)

When you’re on the stage stage
It’s so unbelievable
So unforgettable
How they adore you



ADD: Not much of a Stones fan, although one of my all-time favorite songs is Gimme Shelter. Gives me the goosebumps.

ADD2: I might have choreographed a floor routine to a Supertramp song when I was 12.

Have to say the Vegas U2 crowd skewed middle age, though there were some in their 30s, a few in their 20s. It occurs to me that the current tour production is being paid for by people who are long time fans who are now in a position to pay what they ask for a ticket. For example, we sold our extra ticket to a young black woman banker from London who had just gotten her law degree who spent the summer following them across Great Britain, western Europe and the U.S.

Still, the power of their music was incredible and they have such a back catalog plus new work that makes for a surpurb, uplifting and emotional experience. It’s supposed to help us reconnect with our youth, but it’s not relevant to wot kids today like.

I didn’t know who the average U2 fan these days was, but the people who were lining up at 6 am for floor space next to the stage looked like a gallery of Wal Mart shopper of the week, not that a lot of us those of us in the stands looked any better although Vegas has its share of attractive people. Even Bono was looking like a little old man in some of the close up camera work and hes just a few days older than me.

I guess I’m realizing that there’s fewer sunsets ahead now than I’ve seen.

I guess I’m realizing that there’s fewer sunsets ahead now than I’ve seen.

Yes, and that realization has me wondering why I’m spending my dwindling days in a self-created hell. Starting tomorrow, I begin formulating the “Go West, Middle-Aged Woman Plan.” I am so out of here.
