"Miss You" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
I've been holdin' out so long
I've been sleepin' all alone
Lord, I miss you
I've been hanging on the phone
I've been sleeping all alone
I want to kiss you sometime

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Well, I've been haunted in my sleep
You've been starrin' in my dreams
Lord, I miss you, child
I've been waitin' in the hall
Been waitin' on your call
Your phone rings
It's just some friends of mine that say
"Hey, what's the matter, man?
We're gonna come around at twelve
With some Puerto Rican girls that's just dyin' to meet you
We're gonna bring a case of wine
Hey, let's go mess and fool around
You know, like we used to"

Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah

Oh everybody waits so long
Oh baby, why you wait so long?
Won't you come on, come on

I've been walking Central Park
Singin' after dark
People think I'm crazy
Stumbling on my feet
Shuffling through the street
Asking people, "What's the matter with you, boy?"
Sometimes I want to say to, to myself
Sometimes I say

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
I won't miss you, child

I guess I'm lying to myself
It's just you and no one else
Lord, I won't miss you, child
You've just been blottin' out my mind
Foolin' on my time
No, I won't miss you, baby, yeah
Lord, I miss you child

Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah
Lord, I miss you, child
Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah
Lord, I miss you, child
Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah aah
Aah aah aah aah

    General CommentThis song is about Mick Jagger getting out of a long relationship and a friend of his trying to help him get over her by taking him back out on the "scene," so to speak. Over the course of the song he goes from truly missing her to trying to tell himself that he's glad she's gone.

    General CommentWhat a great comeback from the dead they made with this album. I never liked disco but the Stones did it better than any disco act could ever have hoped to.

    General CommentI think he's totally conflicted, not just having lost a love and mourning it, but wanting it back emotioanally, and not wanting it back logically, hence the "I won't miss you baby" and then the "Lord I miss you child".

    I've never thought there was anything disco about this song, except perhaps the time period it came out in. I was a tween and I never would have classified this as disco.

    My InterpretationBy far one of the most complete Rolling Stone songs in their portfolio. Great beat, sexy bounce, brilliant instrumental and arrangement, engaging story line about a man who cant be with his true love,
