Street Fighting Man




from the 2010 Del Lowell & the SMITHTONES EP CD, Fortuna
(3:18) music and lyrics written by Jagger/Richards
originally recorded by The Rolling Stones - Beggars Banquet (1968)



Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy

But what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town there's just no place for a street fighting man ... No

Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution
But where I live the game to play is compromise solution

But what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town there's no place for a street fighting man ... No

Hey! Said my name is called disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail at all his servants

But what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town there's no place for a street fighting man ... No


1968 The Rolling Stones
