Please go home
Please go home

Well maybe I'm talking too fast
But I won't be the first or the last
In the sea of the thousand you cast

Come on, please go home

I don't have to ask what you do
I just have to look to get you
It means nothing to me to get through

Please go home

I don't want to be on my own
Cause I can't talk much better alone
But I don't have to ring like a phone

Won't you please go home

Please go home

In some early part of your days
You were told of the devious ways
That you thought you could get without pay

Won't you please go home

You reach a state of your mind
Where it's madness to look and to find
Your false affections so kind

Please go home

Won't you please go home



That high-pitched whine on it is Charlie's wife screaming. Few sounds on it, lots of reverb, ages mixing it.

- Mick Jagger, 1967
