At her feet was her footloose man

Where the f**k did these stupid chain letters come from? They are ridiculous. Pandora should block those shitheads who write them. And i like this song.
@monte201967 if you are being serious, don't freak out, everyone knows those stupid chain messages are fake.
They used drink a soda for a upset stomach, older days cure!! Mikeydee64

However, if you don't post this, you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this, don't stop.This is so scary. Post this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done, press f6 and your lovers name will come up on the screen .This is so scary, because it works.

Hey young kids. U CANT ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT
Stones rock been doing it for years 60s--2014. Follow me for follow and good R Roll.old and new.

On the lyrics page
They forgot to repeat the first and second stanzas! They're sung by a children's choir and then Mick Jagger
If Mr. Jimmy was ill, why did he go for a soda?

You can't always get what you want, but you get what you need. Too true, live by these words. ;)
This friday you will be kissed by the love of your life if you post this on five other songs in 143 mins or you will die in two days
Last song I listened to with my brother... This stuff is timeless

You cant always get what you want...so stop asking me to follow you you
Always reminds me of The Big Chill.
Why can't Pandora ever get lyrics right?
cough cough, (#richbitch)
These guys still have it after all these years. Saw them in Chicago a while back . It was worth every penny.
Rolling Stones! Gosh I love juuuuu :')
I never thought Mick Jagger had a very good singing voice but what made this song happen for me was the choir of British kids singing. From what I understand those kids never got any royalties from this song. What a shame on the music industry...
O god!I LUST FOR ENGLISH HORESO:-)
