Richards didn’t steal the mic from Mick Jagger very often — maybe once per album — but on some of his tracks it’s hard to imagine anybody else, even Mick, doing a better job.
This simple blues track fits in quite well against the album’s more ambitious songs (‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want,’ ‘Midnight Rambler,’ ‘Monkey Man’ and ‘Gimme Shelter’).
Hey babe, what’s in your eyes?
I saw them flashing like airplane lights
You fill my cup, babe, that’s for sure
I must come back for a little more
You got my heart you got my soul
You got the silver you got the gold
You got the diamonds from the mine
Well that’s all right, it’ll buy some time
Tell me, honey, what will I do
When I’m hungry and thirsty too
Feeling foolish, and that’s for sure
Just waiting here at your kitchen door?
Hey baby, what’s in your eyes?
Is that the diamonds from the mine?
What’s that laughing in your smile?
I don’t care, no, I don’t care
Oh babe, you got my soul
You got the silver, you got the gold
It’s just your love, just leave me blind
I don’t care, no, that’s no big surprise
