Between the Buttons (USA version)
Side 2, Track 3
"Who's Been Sleeping Here?" – 3:55
A much better performance by Mick on this track. The track itself is a little strange – it sounds almost like one of Bob Dylan's early, tentative experiments with a full rock band, but without any of Dylan's lyrical facility:
What you say girl, who'd you see that night.Yeah, a fairy tale-themed rock song. Outside of Otis Redding, has anyone ever been able to pull this off without sounding idiotic?
I was doing, doing something right.
The soldier, the sailor, then there's the three musketeers,
They'll now tell me now, who's been sleeping here.
(Three more songs left in this trying album. Let us pray I have the strength.)
