"Casino Boogie" as written by and Mick/richards Jagger....
No good, can't speak, wound up, no sleep.
Sky diver insider her, skip rope, stunt flyer.
Wounded lover, got no time on hand.
One last cycle, thrill freak Uncle Sam.
Pause for bus'ness, hope you'll understand.
Judge and jury walk out hand in hand.
Dietrich movies, close up boogies,
Kissing cunt in Cannes.

Grotesque music, million dollar sad.
Got no tactics, got no time on hand.

Left shoe shuffle, right shoe muffle,
Sinking in the sand.
Fade out freedom, steaming heat on,
Watch that hat in black.
Finger twitching, got no time on hand.

    Song MeaningBeen reading online about this song...it means nothing. There is no meaning to this song. Mick and Keith have said that the song was written by using the way Bill Burroughs wrote things by writing phrases on paper and cutting them up to make new sentences. This was their result of doing that.

    General Commentah yesss exile on main st......could be the best album ever made.....i believe that the stones did not have a specific meaning for every lyric and verse and besides songs like this are more about how the thoughts you generate when you hear \"thrill freak uncle sam\" for the first time j/k

    General CommentI know the title refers to the fact that while they were in exile in the south of France they spent a lot of time in nearby casinos. As far as the lyrics go I have to agree with JoeWolf--?

    My Interpretation"Wounded Lover - Got No Time On Hand" .. it's about premature ejaculation.

    General CommentPure conjecture, but consider when the song was written, early 70's. Exile released in 1972 - after States escalate their campaign in Vietnam and begin bombing Cambodia. So partially I think its a "middle finger" to America/LBJ/Richard Nixon/etc. But supposedly its all random words chosen out of a hat patched together. I also think part of it is a slam on Bob Dylan. Could be also a bit about speedballs and/or withdrawal, and above all else, boredom.
