A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

You make a grown man cry
Spread out the oil, the gasoline
I walk smooth, ride in a mean, mean machine
Start it up

It’s the honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

Released in 1968 on the album Child of the Moon (B-Side)

I was crowned with a spike right thru my head
But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas
But it’s all right, I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash

#9 I Can’t Get No (Satisfaction)
Released in 1965 on the album Out of Our Heads

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

That’s what I say, I can’t get no, I can’t get no
I can’t get no satisfaction, no satisfaction

You know I can’t let you
Slide through my hands
Wild horses
Couldn’t drag me away
