The Rolling Stones Claudine Lyrics

Last updated: 03/11/2013 04:21:37 PM

(Jagger/Richards)

Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail (again)
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine

Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail (again)
She only does it at weekends
Claudine
Oh, Claudine

Now only Spider knows for sure
But he ain't talkin' about it any more
Is he, Claudine?

There's blood in the chalet
And blood in the snow
(She)Washed her hands of the whole damn show
The best thing you could do, Claudine

Shot him once right through the head
Shot him twice right through the chest
The judge says (ruled) it was an accident
Claudine
Accidents will happen
(In the best homes)

And Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine

(Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine) [additional chorus]

I'll tell you something
Now Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine

Tell you one more
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Huh Claudine?

Oh Claudine...

Oooo ...
What about the children, baby?
Poor, poor children

Now I threaten my wife with a gun
I always leave the safety on
I recommend it
Claudine

Now she pistol whipped me once or twice
But she never tried to take my life
(What do you think about that)
Claudine

The prettiest girl I ever seen
I saw you on the movie screen
Hope you don't try to make a sacrifice of me
Claudine
(Don't get trigger happy with me)
Don't wave a gun at me
(Claudine)

I said Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine

I said Claudine's back in jail again
Claudine's back in jail again
She only does it at weekends
Claudine

Keith, will you put that weapon down?

Oh Claudine

Oh Claudine

Until lately, one of the great Hidden Stones Classics | Reviewer: Lou | 3/7/13

Written by Mick about the infamous shooting of skiing star Spier Sabich's shooting 'in self defense', by French movie star/model/Andy Williams ex, Claudine Longet. It was recored at the Emotion Rescue sessions, and slated to be on the album until legal concerns kept it officially 'under wraps' for years - even though it was a staple of just about every bootleg collection from the era.

It was finally given a well deserved release as part of the the Some Girls Bonus disc. Another example of how The Stones would have made a very fine country group, if given the chance. This almost defines the term, 'barrel-house rocker, with rollicking guitar, an unrelenting beat by Bill and Charlie, and sardonic Jagger lyrics.
