The Spider and the Fly

Out of Our Heads (USA version)
Side 2, Track 5
"The Spider and the Fly" (Mick Jagger/Keith Richards) – 3:38

Another dreary blues filler song, with lines like

She was common, flirty, she looked about thirty.
I would have run away but I was on my own.
She told me later she's a machine operator.
She said she liked the way I held the microphone.

This may be the most boring song the Stones have recorded to date.
