  • Who wants yesterdays papers
    Who wants yesterdays girl
    Who wants yesterdays papers
    Nobody in the world

    After this time I finally learned
    After the pain and hurt
    After all this what have I achieved
    I've realized it's time to leave

    Cause
    Who wants yesterdays papers
    Who wants yesterdays girl
    Who wants yesterdays papers
    Nobody in the world

    Living a life of constant change
    Every day means the turn of a page
    Yesterdays papers are such bad news
    Same thing applies to me and you

    Who wants yesterdays papers
    Who wants yesterdays girl
    Who wants yesterdays papers
    Nobody in the world

    Seems very hard to have just one girl
    When there's a million in the world
    All of these people just can't wait
    To fall right into their big mistake

    Who wants yesterdays papers
    Who wants yesterdays girl
    Who wants yesterdays papers
    Nobody in the world Writer/s: KEITH RICHARDS, MICK JAGGER

  • Adam from West Palm Beach, Fl"It seems very hard to have just one girl/When there's a million in the world"
    (An ever-so-slight exaggeration, perhaps?) :)
  • Ashley from Quincy, IlI'm glade mick broke up with chrissie shrimpton she is so funny looking,not that I'm happy he left her for marianne faithfull but I heard mick and chrissie fought alot.
  • Mario from Zagreb, CroatiaThis song was inspired by just broken relationship between Jagger and Chrissie Shrimpton, the girl which he lived with. She had just survived a car crash with her famous boyfriend and she already could watch Mick's first appearance in public with a singer Marianne Faithfull on a party which launched the newspapers Internatiol Times. For Jagger the women were easy replaceable. "We were very in love but we fougt the whole time", explained Shrimpton, "As the time goes by, you start thinking different about life and the other person. There was no fight. We broke up with bothside agreement." When Shrimpton attempted suicide, Jagger refused to pay for her medical expenses.
  • Simon from Brno, Czech RepublicBrian Jones played the harpsichord, marimbas and bells.
