(jagger/richards)


Chief to scorn his friends make love to his
Re-la-tions
He beats his wife and made her life a to-tal
Wet va-ca-tion

Now did everybody pay their dues?
Now did end up with tribal blues?
All the braves and squaws and the maids
And the whores
Did, everybody pay their dues?

He's a tribal chief his name is called
Dis-order
His flesh and blood he tears it up when
Acting right is nor-mal

Now did everybody pay their dues?
Now did any of them try to refuse?
All the braves and squaws and the maids
And the whores
Did, everybody pay their dues?

See all the children roses pi-lling
What's all with us to be grown up is to be
Good at ly-ing

Now did everybody pay their dues?
Now did any of them try to refuse?
All the braves and squaws and the maids
And the whores
Did, everybody pay their dues?
