Well, when you're sitting back in your rose pink Cadillacalso wrote
Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day,
I'll be in my basement room with a needle and a spoon
And another girl to take my pain away.
My riches can't buy everythingMe neither. I refuse to believe the whole "As Tears Go By" thing was anything other than the work of a criminal gang employed by Brian Epstein, who captured the Rolling Stones and held them hostage while a group of impostors worked to discredit the band's unruly bad boy image by releasing a series of pussy ballads. Fortunately, their nefarious scheme was foiled just after "Lady Jane" was released, but the damage was done – the band would not regain their street credibility until "Jumping Jack Flash" (only to lose it all again with "Angie", but that's another story).
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by
