(jagger/richards)Why does the sky turn grey ev’ry nightSun rise again in timeWhy do you think of the first girl you hadSome things just stick in your mindWhy does the rain fall down on the earthWhy do the clouds keep cryin’Why do you sleep curled up like a childSome things just stick in your mindWhy when the children grow up and leaveStill remember their nursery rhymesWhy must there be so much hate in their livesSome things just stick in their minds
