The Rolling Stones Beast Of Burden Lyrics

Last updated: 05/30/2011 11:00:00 AM

(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I'll never be your beast of burden
My back is broad but it's a hurting
All I want is for you to make love to me
I'll never be your beast of burden
I've walked for miles my feet are hurting
All I want is for you to make love to me

Am I hard enough
Am I rough enough
Am I rich enough
I'm not too blind to see

I'll never be your beast of burden
So let's go home and draw the curtains
Music on the radio
Come on baby make sweet love to me

Am I hard enough
Am I rough enough
Am I rich enough
I'm not too blind to see

Oh little sister
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, girl
You're a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty girl
Pretty, pretty
Such a pretty, pretty, pretty girl
Come on baby please, please, please

I'll tell ya
You can put me out
On the street
Put me out
With no shoes on my feet
But, put me out, put me out
Put me out of misery

Yeah, all your sickness
I can suck it up
Throw it all at me
I can shrug it off
There's one thing baby
That I don't understand
You keep on telling me
I ain't your kind of man

Ain't I rough enough, ooh baby
Ain't I tough enough
Ain't I rich enough, in love enough
Ooh! Ooh! Please

I'll never be your beast of burden
I'll never be your beast of burden
Never, never, never, never, never, never, never be


I don't need no beast of burden
I need no fussing
I need no nursing
Never, never, never, never, never, never, never be

I've been a beast of burden | Reviewer: Flesticle P. Blummis | 5/30/11

This song has expressed my total life being the "designated schlepper" carrying the water for my wife, kids, family. When I play it (every day at precisely 8:07AM as any Stones fan would understand) I dance naked through my home holding a hot water bottle, antique dental appliance and a copy of Modern Floor Tiling aloft. My family, knowing this is about to transpire, have already left for the BART train.
