"Gimme Shelter" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin'
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away
War, children, it's just a shot away

It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away (shot away)
It's just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away (come on now)
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
(Let?s call my sisters, let?s love my brother)
It's just a kiss away
(I love sisters, I love my brothers,
I love my mother, I love my father)
It's just a kiss away
We need a kiss today
Just a kiss away
It?s just a kiss away, hey!
