Hear the screams from Center 42 Loud enough to bust your brains out The opposition's tongue is cut in two Keep off the streets 'cause you're in danger
One hundred thousand disparos Lost in the jails in South America Curl up baby Curl up tight Curl up baby Keep it all out of sight Undercover Keep it all out of sight Undercover of the night
The sex police are out there on the streets Make sure the past laws are not broken The race militia has got itchy fingers All the way from New York back to Africa
Curl up baby Keep it all out of sight Curl up baby Sleep with all out of sight
Curl up baby Keep it all out of sight Undercover Undercover Undercover Keep it all out of sight Undercover of the night
All the young men they've rounded up Sent to camps back in the jungle And people whisper, people double-talk At once their fathers act so humble All the young girls they have got the blues They're heading on back to Center 42
Keep it undercover Keep it out of sight Keep it undercover Keep it out of sight Undercover Keep it out of sight Undercover Keep it out of sight Undercover of the night
Down in the bars, the girls are painted blue Done up in lace, done up in rubber The john's are jerky little G.I. Joe's On R&R from Cuba and Russia The smell of sex The smell of suicide All these things I just can't keep inside
Undercover Keep it all out of sight Undercover of the night Undercover of the night Undercover of the night Undercover of the night Undercover Undercover, undercover the night

Lek from PaThis is the only Rolling Stones song I love
Danny from Your Town, IaThe video called for Keith Richards to shoot up a church, which he was reportedly thrilled about.
Susan from Toronto, CanadaThe "disparos" Mick sings about were the "disappeared" in Argentina, who were those perceived as a political threat in the 1980's and taken without warning by government men from their homes at night, never to be seen from again.
Jena from Leavenworth, KsI used to think it sounded like Mick Jagger was singing "Undercover I've been laid"
Patrick from Greenville, ScI would have to agree with "Q" Magazine on this one. This is a terrible Stones song.
Craig from Melbourne, AustraliaFantastic song! Charlie also plays tympani on this track. A tympani was left in the studio when the band went to record, and they decided to use it on this track - to great effect.
Mike from Germantown, MdQ, a British music magazine, put this in their list of Terrible songs by Great Artists. They describe it as "The Stones get funky. And that's funky in the same way geography teachers are funky."
David from Youngstown, OhThis is probably the best song on a very underrated Stones album. Sadly, it was also the last excellent record the band released.
Johnny from Los Angeles, CaThis song really rocks. I wanna see the video.
John from Millersville, MdThat he was, Josh, and played some exceptional piano. I was shocked to find out that the guy who pumped out that soulful blues music also played with the Stones and Allman brothers--it proves Leavell has decent range, just as Clapton does. Marvelous musician.
Joshua from Twin Cities, MnChuck Leavell was also one of Eric Clapton's backing musicians on his "Unplugged" live album.
Steph from Ottawa, CanadaOne of the coolest (and most action-packed) video's of early MTV. Really does the song justice - I like video's that have a story to them.
