"Casino Boogie" as written by and Mick/richards Jagger....
No good, can't speak, wound up, no sleep
Skydiver inside her, sLip 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.
