8 Rolling Stone Lyrics Made Age Appropriate
by Paul Lander
Just by adding “Oy Vey” to a ‘Rolling Stone’ lyric, the band sounds their actual age:
I can’t get no satisfaction, oy vey.
I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis, oy vey.
You got rats on the west side, bed bugs uptown, what a mess, this town’s in tatters, oy vey.
Wild horses can’t drag us apart, oy vey.
You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometime you just might find, you get what you need, oy vey.
Some girls give me diamonds, some girls, heart attacks, some girls I give all my bread to, I don’t ever get it back, oy vey.
Love and hope and sex and dreams are still surviving on the streets, and look at me, I’m in tatters, I’m a shattered, oy vey.
You keep on telling me I ain’t your kind of man, ain’t I rough enough, ain’t I tough enough, ain’t I rich enough, in love enough, oy vey.
