Feeling so tired, can't understand it
Just had a fortnight's sleep
I'm feeling so tired, I'm so distracted
Ain't touched a thing all week

I'm feeling drunk, juiced up and sloppy
Ain't touched a drink all night
I'm feeling hungry, can't see the reason
Just ate a horse meat pie

Yeah when you call my name
I salivate like a Pavlov dog
Yeah when you lay me out
My heart is beating louder than a big bass drum, alright

Yeah, you got to mix it child
You got to fix it must be love
It's a bitch
You got to mix it child
You got to fix it but love
It's a bitch, alright

Sometimes I'm sexy, move like a stud
Kicking the stall all night
Sometimes I'm so shy, got to be worked on
Don't have no bark or bite, alright

Yeah when you call my name
I salivate like a Pavlov dog
Yeah when you lay me out
My heart is bumpin' louder than a big bass drum, alright

I said hey, yeah I feel alright now
Got to be a
Hey, I feel alright now
Hey hey hey
Hey hey yeah

"Godlike" Stones  tune  from the hot steamy summer of 71....
So good these imperfections 
Love the lyrics and hearing Mick wail.  Keith's guitar riffs are making my speakers melt.

Reading the youtube comments I liked this one —->

Opening bass line of Get Ready.
Just like "It's the Same Old Song" (Four Tops) and "Under My Thumb".
Still, I love the Stones and what they did with other people's ideas — I'm glad they did what they did, we would be infinitely poorer without it.

"Good composers borrow, great composers steal." — Stravinsky

One of my top ten back when I was a mere pup in LA. Loved the zipper. Very anti-establishment.

Just another reason why CDs have no soul.

I like whistling this riff whenever I hear bitchiness going on.  A wink and a nod to those in the know.


What, what is that strange sound?  It reminds me of something. 

It is the Foo Fighters? Arcade Fire? Kid Rock? Bruno Marz? 
 
That's ROCK AND ROLL. 
this is the definition of timeless wicked-ass Rockin Roll    10+

My favourite Stones album.  The UK version has 1971 on the label.  Just noticed, or forgotten! having owned the album for only 42 years! that there is an Andy Warhol photograph inside/part of the album cover with a stamp saying (Andy Warhol, this photograph may not be ....etc) or is the whole thing designed by Andy?  Decided to answer my own question - From Wiki -"....... they formed their own record company, Rolling Stones Records. Sticky Fingers (UK number 1; US 1), released in March 1971, the band's first album on their own label, featured an elaborate cover design by Andy Warhol.

The album was the first to feature the logo of Rolling Stones Records, which effectively became the band’s logo. It consisted of a pair of lips with a lapping tongue. Critic Sean Egan has said of the logo, "Without using the Stones' name, it instantly conjures them, or at least Jagger, as well as a certain lasciviousness that is the Stones' own... It quickly and deservedly became the most famous logo in the history of popular music.""



 
The tongue illustration became a de facto logo over time, but I think the designer/illustrator was never really paid for it--at least not much. I read that he let too much time elapse before pursuing it in court. Seems like it wouldn't kill the Stones to throw the guy a bone. Not like they can't afford it.
all right!

You can't deny the excellent guitar interplay between Mick Taylor and Keef on this one!! {#Jump}
One of my favorites - this is the Stones at the top of their game.

Ugh, I really dislike 95% of the Stones' music.

 
Glad i'm not the only one . To me they are dull, repetitive, tuneless and moronic. How few RSlyrics get stolen or quoted , how many of their tunes to you find yourself whistling ?nada.
I think this is the first time I've really listened to this. It's killer.

Now we be rockin'.
 
Hey I  feel alright now - thanks
Reminds me...I need to do the New Year's dance mix.
Boring!
Wonder when the next tune will start me up.
Were truer words ever spoken?

*sigh*
Rock 'n Roll !!
Rather simple, but...STONES!
And STONES are good, aren't they, bitches?

Start with the 5 in a row perfect releases from 1968 to 1971.
Beggars Banquet, Let it Bleed, Get Yer Ya Ya's Out (Live), Sticky Fingers & Exile on Main Street.
 All the Stones you really need, although there have been some great moments before and since.
I still listen to Black & Blue, and Tattoo You once in a while. The great thing about this album is the diversity. I know it sounds crazy, but it's not really a rock album, per se. Outside of Brown Sugar, there's not much rock on it, just an amazing compilation of great songs of all different styles (blues, country, R & B, etc.). I think that's why the album has remained popular for 40 years.

This is great advice.

I didn't own too many of their albums over the years.
So I was only familiar with maybe half of their tunes.
This song has reminded my that I need to delve deeper into their catalogue.

Nope; UN means Get Ready, by The Temptations.  Cool song, and the first part of the riff is the same. Not sure which one came first.

Edit:  Actually by Smoky Robinson, but The Temptations do the version I'm used to...

All decency dictates that "Bitch School" immediately follow this song!

So wait a second... the other day, I saw a new song by a band called "Hot B**** Arsenal" as well as a comment by Bill that the censorship was there to preserve RP's safe-for-work status. I totally understand that, but why is there a difference between censoring that version of the word, and not this one on this song? Not in favor of all-censored or all-uncensored, just honestly curious.

The only explanation I can think of, is this is a classic bitch and the bitch in that band's name has yet to gain that status

Sticky Fingers is one of the most amazing albums EVER. What a powerful record!
