"Out Of Time" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
You don't know what's going on
You've been away for far too long
You can't come back and think you are still mine
You're out of touch, my baby
My poor discarded baby
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
You are all left out
Out of there without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

A girl who wants to run away, discovers that she's had her day
It's no good thinking that you are still mine
You're out of touch, my baby, my poor unfaithful baby
I said baby, baby, baby you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
You are all left out
Out of there without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

You thought you were a clever girl giving up your social whirl
But you can't come back and be the first in line
You're obsolete, my baby, my poor old fashioned baby
I said baby, baby, baby you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are all left out
Out of there without a doubt
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

    General CommentShe left him. Then came back and expected him to accept her back. But he has moved on. Therfore he is out of time.

    General CommentThe most underrated Stones song. I love this bombastic arrangement very much; it's amazing! This song is as good as Pait it Black, Angie, She's a Rainbow, Lady Jane, which are some of my all-time favourites.

    Lyric CorrectionI love this song!

    Slightly wrong words - the first verse is 'you're out of touch my baby, my poor old-fashioned baby' (NOT discarded), and the second first should be 'you're obsolete my baby, my poor unfaithful baby', NOT old-fashioned!
