Casino Boogie

Album: Exile on Main St. (1972)
  • No good, can't speak, wound up, no sleep
    Skydiver inside her, sLip rope, stunt flyer
    Wounded lover, got no time on hand
    One last cycle, thrill freak Uncle Sam
    Pause for bus'ness, hope you'll understand
    Judge and jury walk out hand in hand
    Dietrich movies, close up boogies
    Kissing cunt in Cannes

    Grotesque music, million dollar sad
    Got no tactics, got no time on hand

    Left shoe shuffle, right shoe muffle
    Sinking in the sand
    Fade out freedom, steaming heat on
    Watch that hat in black
    Finger twitching, got no time on hand Writer/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger

  • Steve from Phoenix, AzYeah kind of like
    Lennon's I'm a walrus, which had
    nothing to do with the symbol of death
    or Paul dying.

    It was him throwing words at paper.
    What ever rhymed and was in his head
    at the time.

    Sitting on a cornflake -waiting for the Van
    to come.
    What?
  • Peter Griffin from Quahog, RiIt sounds like "Kissing cotton cans" instead of what it really is.
  • Jacob from San Diego, Cajagger uses the word c-nt. that;s a no-no in todays popular music.
  • Dan from Uk, EnglandIt is widely beleived that the lyrics to this song were composed using William Burroughs "Cut-up", technique.
