  • I had a dream last night
    That I was piloting a plane
    And all the passengers were drunk and insane
    I crash landed in a Louisiana swamp
    Shot up a horde of zombies
    But I come out on top
    What's it all about?
    Guess it just reflects my mood
    Sitting in the dirt
    Feeling kind of hurt

    When all I hear is doom and gloom
    And all is darkness in my room
    Through the light your face I see
    Baby take a chance
    Baby won't you dance with me

    Lost all that treasure in an overseas war
    It just goes to show you, don't get what you paid for
    Battle to the rich and you worry about the poor
    Put my feet up on the couch
    And lock all the doors
    What's that funky noise
    Guess that's the tightening of the screws
    Sitting in the dirt
    I'm feeling kind of hurt


    All I hear is doom and gloom
    But when those drums go boom boom boom
    And through the night your face I see
    Baby take a chance
    Baby won't you dance with me
    Yeah
    Baby won't you dance with me
    Ah yeah

    Fracking deep for oil
    But there's nothing in the sump
    There's kids all picking
    Ar the garbage dumb
    I'm running out of water
    So I better prime the pump
    I'm trying to stay sober
    But I end up drunk

    We'll be eating dirt
    Living on the side of the road
    There's some food for thought
    Kinda makes your head explode
    Feeling kind of hurt
    Yeah

    But all I hear is doom and gloom
    And all is darkness in my room
    Through the night your face I see
    Baby take your chance
    Won't you dance with me
    Yeah, come on
    Baby won't you dance with me

    I'm feeling kind of hurt
    Baby won't you dance with me
    Oh yeah
    I'm sitting in the dirt
    Baby won't you dance with me! Writer/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger
