  • I was a butcher cutting up meat
    My hands were bloody, I'm dying on my feet
    I was a surgeon 'till I start to shake
    I was a-falling 'till you put on the brakes

    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now

    I was a pitcher down in a slump
    I was a fighter taken for a sucker punch
    Feeling bad, guess I lost my spring
    I was the boxer who can't get in the ring

    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey, there ain't no stopping me
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking, alright

    I was a hooker losing her looks
    I was a writer can't write another book
    I was all dried up dying to get wet
    I was a tycoon drowning in debt, I said

    I said ah, hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey, there ain't no stopping me
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now
    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey, you got me rocking now

    That's all, really
    Come on, come on

    Don't stop
    Don't stop
    Don't
    Don't stop
    Oh
    Keep it going now
    Come on
    Yeah, ay Writer/s: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards

  • Ashley from Quincy, IlI don't see why people hate this song.one day I was in class and my teacher had his ipod on and this song came on I was going to have a cow because he's a beatles fan. I thought I was the only one in my school that liked them cause I'm only in junior high and you know the music today.
  • Patrick from Greenville, Sca lot of stones fans seem to hate this. I think because it was made in '94 instead of '74. I think it's one of Keith's all-time great riffs.
  • Ethan from Portland, Orthough i must admit, many rolling stones fans hate this song . . .
  • Sam from Shanghai, ChinaGreat guitar solo
  • Ethan from Portland, Orthis never fails to get me rocking
