"Ride On" as written by and Thomas Derrick/foster Mc Elroy....
Way down deep dark and funky
Tie me tightly to your bed

Ride on, lady, I'm your monkey
Yes, the organ grinder's getting wet

Oh you're still filthy dragged on the sand of another mans land
Another man riding on another man's dream

If I call on our beautiful
I may issue
I don't want to miss you
I don't want to diss you
I don't want to miss you
But you're on my list, you
I put you on my list, you

Way down deep dark and funky
Tie me tightly to your bed

Ride on, lady, I'm your monkey
Yes, the organ grinder's getting wet

You're still filthy dragged on the sand of another mans land
Another man riding on another man's dream
Singing for doorways and begging for light
My lock hears the strike
It's alright
It's just I caught you playing with the light

I may issue
I don't want to miss you
Not going to miss you
I don't want to miss you
I put you on my list, you
I put you on my list, you

If I call on our beautiful
I may issue
I don't want to miss you
I come here to bliss you
I don't want to miss you
I put you on my list, you
I put you on my list, you

    General Commentthe last song that the stone roses ever recorded, not as good as the rest, but still better than 75% of stuff coming out today

    General Commentthis song is a strange one, first time i heard it i ddin't believe it was the roses, just because of the pure sexual lyrical content, but alas it is, and i agree, it's better than 75% of the stuff we get nowerdays

    General CommentI like this one a lot. Dark and ominous and funky. The main guitar riff, as heard at 0:40 is the same tune Ian used in his Can't See Me song at about 2:23 - "I know mine, mine know me, I can sail upon your sea, I can sail upon your sea so easy"
    Squire also used that same lick in the soloing on Daybreak at a few live performances but not the album version. Such as the Hiroshima concert.
