Can a Woman Out Sing Mick Jagger?

Can a Woman Out Sing Mick Jagger?

Yes, if that woman is Linda Ronstadt. It’s audacious to take on any Rolling Stone song but Linda’s band did it. She even plays with the lyrics to make them her own.

She could also sing quite softly and very well.

Ronstadt achieved great popularity in the 1970s, enough to leave the rock and roll genre that made her famous to branch out into Latin music and other styles.

As Willie Nelson once said, “There are two kinds of men in this world. Those with a crush on Linda Ronstadt and those who never heard of her.”

Women think I’m tasty, but they’re always tryin’ to waste me
Make me burn the candle right down
But, baby, baby, don’t need no jewels in my crown
‘Cause all you women is low down gamblers
Cheatin’ like I don’t know how

Baby, got no flavor, fever in the funk house now
This low down bitchin’ got my poor feet a itchin’
Don’t you know you know the duece is still wild
Baby, I can’t stay, you got to roll me
And call me the tumblin’ dice

Always in a hurry, I never stop to worry
Don’t you see the time flashin’ by
Honey, got no money
I’m all sixes and sevens and nines
Say now baby, I’m the rank outsider
You can be my partner in crime
Baby, I can’t stay

You got to roll me and call me the tumblin’
Roll me and call me the tumblin’ dice
Now baby
Oh my, my, my, I’m the lone crap shooter
Playin’ the field ev’ry night
Baby, I can’t stay

You got to roll me and call me the tumblin’ dice (Call me the tumblin’)
Got to roll me (ya yes), got to roll me, got to roll me (Oh yeah)
Got to roll me
Got to roll me (yeah)
Got to roll me (Keep on rolling)
Got to roll me (Keep on rolling)
Got to roll me (Keep on rolling)
Got to roll me
Call me the tumblin’ dice, yeah
Got to roll me
Got to roll me
Baby sweet as sugar (Got to roll me)
Yeah, my, my, my yeah (Got to roll me)
Now now now now (Got to roll me)
I went down baby, oh
Got to roll me (hit me)
Baby I’m down

Songwriters: Keith Richards / Mick Jagger
