"Emotional Rescue" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
Is there nothing I can say, nothing I can do to change your mind?
I'm so in love with you, you're too deep in, you can't get out
You're just a poor girl in a rich man's house
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Yeah, baby, I'm crying over you

Don't you know promises were never meant to keep?
Just like the night, they dissolve off in sleep
I'll be your savior, steadfast and true
I'll come to your emotional rescue
I'll come to your emotional rescue
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Yeah, the other night, cryin', cryin' baby yeah I'm cryin
Yeah I'm cryin, I'm your child baby, child,
Yeah I'm a child, I'm a child, I'm a child

You think you're one of a special breed
You think that you're his pet Pekinese
I'll be your savior, steadfast and true
I'll come to your emotional rescue
I'll come to your emotional rescue
Ooh ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Yeah, I was dreamin' last night baby
Last night I was dreamin' that you'd be mine
But I was cryin' like a child
Yeah I was cryin', cryin' like a child
Could be mine, mine, mine, mine, mine all mine
You could be mine, could be mine, could be mine all mine

I come to you, so silent in the night
So stealthy, so animal quiet
I'll be your savior, steadfast and true
I'll come to your emotional rescue
I'll come to your emotional rescue
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Yeah, you should be mine, mine, ooh!

Mmm yes, you could be mine, tonight and every night
I will be your knight in shining armor
Coming to your emotional rescue
You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine
You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine

I will be your knight in shining armor
Riding across the desert on a fine Arab charger

    General CommentYeah, this is the Stones in their disco phase. What's it about? He wants to steal the woman from a man - she needs to be "emotionally rescued." He wants to prove to her that he is emotionally good enough for her. Contrasting bravado lyrics with falsetto singing and a disco beat.

    General CommentEmotional Rescue delivers not a bad sound on this recording, quality delivery of high calibur lyrics and sensitive ears. It maintains ur sanity, and you can dance to it, or schwing!

    General CommentI just like the shift in his voice from the start to the finish. Very few can pull that off.
