Live With Me

Lyrics: Jagger, Richard
Music: Jagger, Richard

A Rolling Stones song sung by Luther Dickinson with Phil Lesh & Friends in November 2013 as part of their (and American Jubilee's) cover of the album "Let It Bleed".

I got nasty habits, I take tea at three
Yes, and the meat I eat for dinner
Must be hung up for a week
My best friend, he shoots water rats
And feeds them to his geese
Don't you think there's a place for you
In between the sheets

Come on now, honey
We can build a home for three
Come on now, honey
Don't you want to live with me

And there's a score of hare-brained children
They're all locked in the nursery
They got earphone heads they got dirty necks
They're so 20th century
Well they queue up for the bathroom
'Round about 7:35
Don't you think we need a woman's touch to make it come alive

You'd look good pram pushing
Down the high street
Come on now, honey
Don't you want to live with me

Whoa, the servants they're so helpful, dear
The cook she is a whore
Yes, the butler has a place for her
Behind the pantry door
The maid, she's French, she's got no sense
She's from the Crazy Horse
And when she strips, the chauffeur flips
The footman's eyes get crossed

Don't you think there's a place for us
Right across the street
Don't you think there's a place for you
In between the sheets
