THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST

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
