Citadel Lyrics - The Rolling Stones

Review The Song (4)



Men are armed shout who goes there
We have journeyed far from here
On the Bible make us swear

Candy and Taffy, hope we both are well
Please come see me in the citadel

Flags are flying, dollar bills
Round the heights of concrete hills
You can see the pinnacles

Candy and Taffy, hope we both are well
Please come see me in the citadel

In the streets are many walls
Hear the peasants come and crawl
You can hear their numbers called

Candy and Taffy, hope we both are well
Please come see me in the citadel

Screaming people fly so fast
sponsored links
In their shiny metal cars
Through the woods of steel and glass

Candy and Taffy, hope we both are well
Please come see me in the citadel

The theme of this song is about alienation in modern/future cities.

The first line is "Men AT ARMS (like standing guard, get it?)

The last line of the second verse is
"you can see the pinafores" (French for flags) --- listen and you will hear it clearly!

Candy and Taffy | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/26/11

My "Candy" is doing well based on a recent report; believe that the same is true of "Taffy" (at least I hope so. Love them both to death!) That song brings back only the best memories...great era, and, yes, the only really good song on the album. One of the few times i stray from hendrix was towards this song...otherwise, all jazz and world music for me. but keith and mick hit one out of the park with citadel~

Truly Psychedelic | Reviewer: ßìk.. | 5/22/10

A great song from their only psychedelic album 'Their Satanic Majesties Request'.The album didn't have much to offer except this.Almost all great psychedelic songs were released by artists in the year 1967,both in the UK & US

Questioning | Reviewer: Mike | 1/5/08

Your version of the song says:hope we both are well.(improper) Why not hope you(Candy & Taffy)both are well? Are you sure? Just wondering: Was that song based off Warhol superstar Candy Darling?
