"Ain't Too Proud To Beg" as written by Edward Holland and Norman J. Whitfield....
I know you wanna leave me,
But I refuse to let you go,
If I have to beg, plead for your sympathy,
I don't mind 'cause you mean that much to me.

Ain't too proud to beg and you know it,
Please don't leave me girl,
Don't you go,
Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby,
Please don't leave me, girl,
Don't you go.

Now I've heard a cryin' man
Is half a man with no sense of pride,
But if I have to cry to keep you,
I don't mind weepin' if it'll keep you by my side.

Ain't too proud to beg and you know it,
Please don't leave me girl,
Don't you go,
Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby,
Please don't leave me, girl,
Don't you go.

If I have to sleep on your doorstep all night and day
Just to keep you from walking away,
Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand,
'cause I wanna keep you any way I can.

Ain't too proud to beg and you know it,
Please don't leave me girl,
Don't you go,
Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby,
Please don't leave me, girl,
Don't you go.

Now I've got a love so deep in the pit of my heart,
And each day it grows more and more,
I'm not ashamed to call and plead to you, baby,
If pleading keeps you from walking out that door.

Ain't too proud to beg and you know it,
Please don't leave me girl,
Don't you go,
Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby,
Please don't leave me, girl,
Don't you go.

    General CommentSome songs shouldn't be covered by some bands. This is a great old Temptations song and the Rolling Stones ruined it in my opinion.

    General CommentI thought they did a decent job. It's not in my top 10 Stones songs--or even top 100, but it's not bad.

    General CommentNo, it's not bad at all.
    Kind of weird and sloppy, but it gets the point of 'no pride' across.

    General CommentI have to agree with Jp. Some songs should be covered, such as "The Man Who Sold The World", "All Along The Watchtower", and "Ain't Too Proud To Beg". When the Rolling Stones cover anything, it = win.
