"Some Girls" as written by and Mick/richards Jagger....
Some girls give me money
Some girls buy me clothes
Some girls give me jewelry
That I never thought I'd own

Some girls give me diamonds
Some girls, heart attacks
Some girls I give all my bread to
I don't ever want it back

Some girls give me jewelry
Others buy me clothes
Some girls give me children
I never asked them for

So give me all your money
Give me all your gold
I'll buy you a house at Zuma beach
I'll give you half of what I own

Some girls take my money
Some girls take my clothes
Some girls get the shirt off my back
And leave me with a lethal dose

Yeah French girls they want Cartier
Italian girls want cars
American girls want everything in the world
You can possibly imagine

English girls they're so prissy
I can't stand them on the telephone
Sometimes I take the receiver off the hook
I don't want them to ever call at all

White girls they're pretty funny
Sometimes they drive me mad
Black girls just wanna get f***ed all night
I just don't have that much jam

Chinese girls are so gentle
They're really such a tease
You never know quite what they're cookin'
Inside those silky sleeves

So give me all your money
Give me all your gold
I'll buy you a house at Zuma beach
I'll give you half of what I own

Some girls they're so pure
Some girls so corrupt
Some girls give me children
I only made love to her once

Give me half your money
Give me half your car
Give me half of everything
I'll make you world's biggest star

So gimme all your money
Give me all your gold
Let's go back to Zuma beach
I'll give you half of everything I own

    My Opinion"Some Girls" is the collaboration of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (more about Keith, of course...the genius of the Rolling Stones) resulting in the rudest, most overtly chauvinistic album ever to expose the nasty aspects of women (and in themselves, indirectly) in an album that offends and taunts like no other album before its time. Especially notable about this album is how the guitar licks were so skillfully crafted as to sharply and accurately underscore the themes and the attitudes of the songs, start to finish, on the masterful and powerful "Some Girls" album. Keith Richards (and Ronnie Wood - who adds the superb pedal steel guitar licks throughout the album) created such memorable and right on perfect lead guitar licks to accompany the lead vocals that they are more like backing vocals than they are guitar solos and riffs. The deep-throated, adulterous guitar work on "Shattered" is so critical to the delivery of the song that the song sounds empty and naked without it. (Make that a word of warning to cover bands who want to perform Shattered at their gigs. That guitar part had better be perfect!) Never has there been such a perfect marriage of guitar licks and effects to the vocals and lyrics and persona (if you will) of songs on a rock and roll album. Whether you choose to be offended, or you don't, you have to acknowledge the beautiful weave of raunchy, biting lyrics and bawdy vocals to the supporting lead guitar work and recognize that "Some Girls" is, perhaps, the most notable overall work of blues based, gutter borne rock and roll music in the catalog of the Rolling Stones. A true aficionado of rock and roll cannot deny the efforts of Keith and Mick (and the whole band) in creating a powerful and VERY listenable blend of lyrics, vocals and instrumentals to result in one of the finest blues-influenced albums of the rock and roll era!

    General CommentMe too. Jesse Jackson doesnt like this song but I do. And I dont like Jesse Jackson. There's an odd love/hate triangle there.

    General CommentDoes anybody remember when the NAACP and various preachers were trying to have ths song taken off the album due to the "black girls" line? Funny thing is when you asked any Black woman about it at the time they loved the lyrics. It was their favorite part of the song. It was the black men who complained.

    General CommentCould this song get radio play today? Remember what happened to Reverend/football player Reggie White when he made similar comments about ethnic groups?! The Stones, god bless them, have a license to say whatever whenever. I have free speech envy!

    General CommentIt's just funny......and interesting Mick's call on the different type of woman.....and really who would know better.

    The Black Girls line is unnessary obviously, but it sums up the attitude of the Some Girls sessions..........F You!
