Could You Walk On Water?

The Rolling Stones almost offended the Christian South before John Lennon did. Decca stopped them. The aftermath was Aftermath which did not contain talk of pseudo paperbacks covering Chaucer to Steinbeck.

You’re gettin’ tired babe, sittin’ there on the side
Ain’t in the right place, to try and change the tide

You sit and read, but all you do is moan
You sit and read, but all you do is moan
Ain’t no wonder, you’re sittin’ there on your own

You’re readin’ the cover of a pseudo paperback
You’re readin’ the cover of a pseudo paperback
Displays about writers, Chaucer to Steinbeck

You’re lookin’ tired babe, sittin’ there on the side
You’re lookin’ tired babe, sittin’ there on the side
It’s only yourself, you’re takin’ for a ride

You say you won’t change, but do you really care
You say you won’t change, but do you really care
You can’t do much just sittin’ there in your chair

I said, hey babe, hey where you been all night?
I said, hey babe, hey where you been all night?
Your clothes all tangled, sure ain’t talkin’ right

You’re lookin’ tired babe, sittin’ there on the side
You’re lookin’ tired babe, sittin’ there on the side
You ain’t in the right place, to try and change the tide” — Rolling Stones, “Looking Tired” (1965)
