The Rolling Stones Luxury Lyrics

Last updated: 07/13/2014 08:57:29 PM

(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I want a real fine car, fly Miami too
All the rum, I want to drink it, all the whiskey too
My woman need a new dress, my daughter got to go to school
I'm working so hard, I'm working for the company
I'm working so hard to keep you in the luxury

You can't call me lazy on a seven day a week
Make a million for the Texans, twenty dollar me
Yes, I want a gold ring, riding in a limousine
I'm working so hard, I'm working for the company
I'm working so hard to keep you in the luxury

Now listen, I'm a proud man, not a beggar walking on the street
I'm working so hard, to keep you from the poverty
I'm working so hard to keep you in the luxury, oh yeah
I'm working so hard, I'm working so hard
Harder, harder, working, working, working

I think it's such a strange thing, giving me concern
Half the world it got nothing the other half got money to burn
My woman need a new dress, my daughter got to go to school
I'm working so hard, I'm working for the company, oh, yeah
I'm working so hard, oh, yeah

Working on a Sunday in refinery
Make a million for the Texans, twenty dollar me
All the rum, I want to drink it, I got responsibility
I'm working so hard to keep you from the poverty, oh, yeah
I'm working so hard, I'm working for the company, oh, yeah
I'm working so hard, oh, yeah
Harder, harder, working, working...

Beyond Brilliant! Stones At Their Best | Reviewer: Frank @ Bowtie | 7/13/14

This is one of those legendary tracks that gives creedence to the nickname "The World's Greatest Rock And Roll Band"....as the boys hammer off a masterpiece fusing reggae and rock......and those lyrics? WOW! An ESSENTIAL Stones' cut that everyone needs to hear, recorded towards the end of the period when they really REALLY were "The Shit"....

Brilliant Song | Reviewer: Mike | 8/10/07

This song has always flipped my wig so to speak. Killer riff, souful singing, great story, addictive chorus. I'm black, 43 y.o. and can relate to 'workin so hard' and appreciate the Stones for acknowledging Black reality and creativity. When the Stones are on, they can't be beat and they're 'on' on this one (lots of others by the way).
