999
by Keith Richards, Waddy Wachtel, Steve Jordan


Makin' it, doesn't matter how many
Takin'it
Well, I can't shake it
Off of my back, damn monkey
It's either too tight
Or it's too slack

How much
That's all it is ooh
Ninety nine
How much, yahh
Now, ninety nine
You better hack it baby
Yea, my time exploded, space blew up
Need something in my dixie cup
Whoa, let me get it right
There's the best pair of lips I've kissed all
night

How much, well give it to me
I'll pay you later
Nine ninety nine
Ohh, I got a pocket calculator
Yeah, wake up, it don't make sense
Nickles and dimes
Nine ninety nine

The lion and the lamb are locked in an embrance
You won't get it till it's in your face
Ohh, I got me out of depper red
Don't panic
Ah, it's where I want to be
Yeah, oh
A useful member of society, huh!
I just need a little of that old money

Gimme ninety nine, yea
Well, I can't shake it off of my back
God damn monkey
Aw, it's too tight, or it's too slack
Yeah some things never change
Price of bullets remains the same

Here we go
Hand over fist, slap on the wrist
Umm, nine nine
That's all I'm askin'How much
How much do you want to give
Just a little bit
Nine
Yeah they operate
Look at the state of my baby
Well, it cost 20 grand, pitfull
Yeah, that's a nine
Put your money where your mouth is
Cough it up
Ohh nickels and dimes
Yeah, huh, ooh


"Words of Wonder"
by Keith Richards, Waddy Wachtel, Steve Jordan


Now listen to me baby
I keep it on so low
And I whisper to you sister
Now we're all alone
Take no notice of me baby
Like a dream
Gonna keep it quit
So I can hear you scream
Words of wonder
Are the words I wanna hear

I'm sticking to you baby
Until I arrive
I'm half dead, a quarter alive
A little bit is missing
Wonder where it's gone
Pay me no attention
I babble on and on
Words, thoese words of wonder
Are the words I wanna hear
Those words, the words of wonder
They are the words I wanna hear

Dripping from your lips
Yeah, that's the way it goes
That's the way it comes
Ya' know what I mean
Now that your talkin' to me baby
Still you say that I'm obscene
Words, words of wonder
They are the words I wanna hear
Words, those words of wonder
Are the words I wanna hear

Let me roll it over baby
Now I got to jam it up
Make you weep and moan
Go around the back baby
And make yourself known
The words, these are words of wonder
These are the words you better learn
These are words, these words of wonder
These are words, you ought to know

You been talkin' to me sweetie
You know I babble on and on
Ooh, I run away my tongue
Giving thanks and praises
Low friends in high places
I'm gonna whisper these words of wonder


"Yap Yap"
by Keith Richards, Waddy Wachtel, Steve Jordan


Well I hear you talking and I see me walking
Let me make clear
I'm outta here, oh yah
You know it makes no sense to me
No way you gonna get no fence around me
Yap Yap

You known you talk too much, mmm yeh
Yap Yap you talk too much
Even in my sleep I hear you babe
But it makes me weep when I'm awake

When I hear the whispers, babe
The echoes coming round the bluff
I get all my secrets back
It's quite a shock
Mmm yeh, Yap Yap, you know you're talking too much

Mmm it's driving me, driving me
So what's the message
Why don't you talk to me

Yeh - it gets to me
Well I hear you talking
It makes no sense to me
Yap Yap you talk too much


"Hate It When You Leave"
by Keith Richards, Waddy Wachtel, Steve Jordan


I'm on my way, it's you I turn to
How many days have I to love you
I got to say this is inside me
I've got to have someone to guide me
Hate it when you leave, hate it when you leave
Hate it when you're leaving me

You're everywhere I go
Even though you're miles away
But I see, see your face everyday
Ooh and I love, I love it
It's a hard game you play
Hate it when you leave, hate it when you leave
Hate it when you're leaving me

It's killing me
No arms around me
Living this way, so underhanded
I gotta make you stay
I gonna habit
Hate it when you leave, hate it when you leave
Hate it when you're leaving me
