  • Fling you out into orbit
    No one's gonna hear you shout
    The fool ain't gonna follow
    He don't even sleaze about

    Now you're sad sad sad
    Sad sad sad
    Sad sad sad
    But you're gonna be fine

    The elephant's in the bedroom
    Throwing all his weight about
    And I'm locked in the bathroom
    Your screams are gonna drown me out

    Now you're sad sad sad
    Sad sad sad
    Sad sad sad
    But you're gonna be fine
    Oh yeah

    I got a cold chill
    I get a cool thrill
    Are you ready for the gilded cage
    Are you ready for the tears of rage
    Come on baby, don't let them drown you out
    Oh yeah

    Sad sad sad
    Bad bad bad
    Sad sad sad
    But you're gonna be fine

    Now you're sad sad sad
    Sad sad sad
    Sad sad sad
    But you're gonna be fine

    You're gonna be fine
    You're gonna be fine

    You're gonna be fine fine fine
    You're gonna be fine fine fine
    Fine fine fine
    Fine fine fine
    Oh yeah
    Oh yeah
    Oh yeah
    Oh yeah
    Gonna be fine fine fine
    Fine fine fine
    Fine fine fine Writer/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger

  • Brisselchick from Bristol UkMy favourite stones song.. and now I’ll be humming it for the next week!
  • Alastair from Stranraer, United Kingdom"The elephants in the bedroom throwing all it's weight about" - great line!
  • Craig from Melbourne, Australia"elephants in the bedroom".

    Go Mick!
  • Ethan from Portland, Ori'm one of the few Stones fans that actually digs this one; check out Flashpoint for a rollicking live version.
  • Greg from Victoria, CanadaA sad,sad,sad excuse for a song and I love the stones.
  • J L from Sevilla, SpainIn a interview given to Guitar Player magazine, Keith Richards revealed that the intro guitar, the first notes to be heard in the record, in fact, were played by Mick Jagger, even though the sound is pure vintage Richards (Open-G tuning). "He's learned a lot, he has a good teacher". One may guess that in the previous years Jagger had toured as a solo artist promoting his 2 solo records, with great guitarists backing him (Jeff Beck, for a start), and he played guitar on those tours.
  • Johnny from Los Angeles, CaThank god for so many rolling stones songfacts. It's funny that a song with this title is so upbeat.
