"She Was Hot" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
New York was cold and damp
TV is just a blank
Looks like another dead end Sunday

What about an early night
Monday never feels so bright
Ooh the sheets feel cold and lonely

Who wants to brave the pouring rain
For a glass of French champagne?
Well grab a cab, grab a cap and baby, come right by

And she was hot, as she kissed my mouth
She was hot, as I wiped her brow
She was hot, she pinned me to the ground
She was quick, she knew her way around
She was hot, as she tore my clothes
She was hot, she had no place to go
She was hot, on a cold and rainy night

Detroit was smoky grey
Nothing like the good old days
Well I got a fever that I'm fighting

I don't need your company
Leave me in my misery
I can take the rebound just like lightning

And she was hot, in a 50's dress
She was hot, her lips were flashing red
I was lost, in her burning flesh
I was hot, I was dripping sweat
She was hot, in the Detroit snow
She was hot, she had no place to go
She was hot, on a cold and rainy night

And she was hot, and I had the blues
She was hot, honey, where were you?
If you were in my shoes
You would be excused

She was hot, you could never wait
She was hot, never hesitate
She was hot, on a cold and rainy night

I think I'm going off the rails
Riding down the pleasure trails
I was taking passion where you find it

Honey when you're young and fresh
And you need the touch of flesh
Go take the treasure where you find it

And she was hot, in the melted snow
She was hot, in the molten glow
She was hot, she got it in the blood
She was hot, like the dam that bursts
She was strong, she was strong and true
She was black, and her eyes were blue
She was lost, and she took a chance
At just a brief romance

Down the avenue into the lost bayou
Into the tall bamboo, back to the human zoo
I wish you all the best, I hope we meet again
In a cold Chicago night

She was hot
She was hot
She was hot hot hot
She was hot hot hot
She was hot hot hot
She was hot hot hot
She was hot hot hot
She was hot hot hot
She was hot hot hot
She was hot hot hot

    General CommentThis was my fave off of Undercover, love the chuck berry style guitar, chord progressions (esp how the last verse throws in an extra few measures). The vocal stylings are kinda cool too (again, last verse when vocals are doubled over, one vocal is almost spoken, while at the same time the other is more typical jagger yellin). I thought it was good for its time, and is still fun to listen to now and then.

    Remember the mtv video?? Watch the video on you tube, at the very end you will hear an early stones classic 'off the hook' being played in the background. I didn't tune into this back in '83, maybe you didn't either??

    General CommentI was 13 when I got the Undercover album for christmas. Not a bad album really, and this song grabbed my attention straight away. The guitar style (chuck berry) was the hook for me, and I did enjoy the lyrics (what 13 y.o. wouldnt). However, I could never quite figure out what the lyrics were in the last verse. it sounded like some fancy french to me.. figured he was quoting some famous foreign poetry, or trying to sneak in some adult themed lyric under the guise of another language.

    But looking at the real lyrics to the last verse now, I am pleasantly surprised with the imagery:

    Down the avenue
    Into the lost bayou
    Into the tall bamboo
    Into the human zoo
    I wish you all the best
    I hope we meet again
    In a cold Chicago night

    Very appropriate wrap-up of a song dripping with animalistic primal behavior.

    General CommentPretty sure the bit after "Think I'm goin off the rails, riding down the pleasure trails" is "Always take your passion where you find it". I was 16 when I bought this album, listened to over and over and over and over and over and over ;-)
