The Rolling Stones Tumbling Dice Lyrics

Last updated: 08/28/2012 06:19:03 PM

(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Women think I'm tasty, but they're always tryin' to waste me
And make me burn the candle right down
But baby, baby, I don't need no jewels in my crown

'Cause all you women is low down gamblers
Cheatin' like I don't know how
But baby, I go crazy, there's fever in the funk house now
This low down bitchin' got my poor feet a itchin'
You know you know the duece is still wild

Baby, I can't stay, you got to roll me
And call me the tumblin' dice

Always in a hurry, I never stop to worry
Don't see the time flashin' by
Honey, got no money
I'm all sixes and sevens and nines
Say now, baby, I'm the rank outsider
You can be my partner in crime

But baby, get it straight
You got to roll me and call me the tumblin'
Roll me and call me the tumblin' dice

Oh, my, my, my, I'm the lone craps shooter
Playin' the field ev'ry night

Baby, get it straight
You got to roll me and call me the tumblin' dice, (Call me the tumblin')
Got to roll me, Got to roll me, Got to roll me (Oh yeah)
Got to roll me. Got to roll me, Got to roll me ( Keep on rolling, Keep on rolling)

he doesn't say "i don't need no jewels in my crown". i'm not sure exactly what he DOES say...when he told linda ronstadt the words, he said "i don't need no jewels in my frown", and that is what she sings in her version. i would love to know what the real lyrics are if anyone knows!

Tumbling dice. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/8/11

One of the quintesential stones songs. It sums them up perfectly with the loose arms in the air pool bar sing-alongs. Its up there with brown sugar & gimme shelter. Brilliant. I'm going to murder this at the kareoke.

Tumbling dice is a relentless work of art, the best rolling stones work by far. Great lyrics and addictive rythm. The guitar solo is the played with absolute perfection. Mike Taylor, playing bass this time, is the best musician the stones have ever lined up, and his era with them crowns their finest work. I only wish he could have one last hurrah with them for a last farewell tour. Thank you boys for your work and for the pleasure you have given me. It was a privilege.

If.......... | Reviewer: wiiliebid | 4/23/11

If I made a new friend who had never heard of the rolling stones, this is the song I would play first for them. It represents what the Stones are all about; great rhythm, great lyrics that allude to the theme that life/love is a 'crap shoot' and that the singer is a loner........................

A Great Great Underrated Song | Reviewer: James | 3/23/11

This is definitely one of Stone's best songs. For ages the only lyrics I could understand were "Baby" "Tumbling Dice" and "Got to Roll me," and even then I liked the song. But when you follow along with the lyrics and realize what a funky well written little story he's telling, it's obvious why Mick Jagger considered a legend. I've been writing songs for a while, and they just don't come as brilliant and apparently effortless as this.

Best song... | Reviewer: Dan | 7/7/09

I believe Tumbling Dice is the greatest Rolling Stone's song. So underrated, in my opinion. It has one of the coolest vocals by Jagger, and everything just falls into place perfectly. The choruses next to Jagger's are almost angelical. Awesome song, one of the greatest of all time.
