TUMBLING DICE

Live 15 Dec 2012 version


[Spoken intro (Mick Jagger):] You know, some of the– some of the guest we've had have come like thousands of miles, they've flown from Mosco and Los Angeles and Saskatoon, and God knows where else. But our next guest he just had to walk here. So I introduce to you New Jersey very own Bruce Springsteen!

Backing singers:Ooh ooh

Mick Jagger:People think I'm crazy always trying to waste me
Make me burn the candle right down
And baby, I can't stay
I don't need no jewels in my crown

Bruce Springsteen:Because all you women is a low down gamblers
Cheating like I don't know how
Jagger and Springsteen:And baby, I can't stay
And there's fever in the funk house now

Mick Jagger:This low down bitching got my poor feet itching
Don't you know the deuce is still wild
Jagger and Springsteen:And baby, I can't stay
Mick Jagger:You've got to roll me
Jagger and Springsteen:And call me the tumbling dice

Mick Jagger:You got it
Bruce Springsteen:Always in a hurry, never stop to worry
Don't you see the time flashing by, say!
Jagger and Springsteen:Honey, I got no money
I'm sixes and sevens and nines

Bruce Springsteen:Go!
Mick Jagger:Say now, baby, I'm the rank outsider
You can be my partner in crime
Jagger and Springsteen:Baby, I can't stay
You've got to roll me and call me the tumbling
Roll me
Mick Jagger:And call me the tumbling dice

Mick Jagger:???, I'm the lone crap shooter
Jagger and Springsteen:Playing the field every night
Baby, I can't stay
You've got to roll me and call me the tumbling dice
Mick Jagger:And call me the tumbling
Bruce Springsteen:You've got to roll me
Mick Jagger:It's what you've gotta do
