Is there nothing I can say, nothing I can do
To change your mind, I'm so in love with you
You're too deep in, you can't get out, you're just a poor girl in a rich man's house
Yeah, baby, I'm crying over you
Don't you know promises were never made to keep
Just like the night, they dissolve up in sleep, I'll be your savior, steadfast and true
I'll come to your emotional rescue, I'll come to your emotional rescue

Yeah, the other night, crying, crying, baby, yeah I'm crying
Yeah, I'm like a child, baby, I'm like a child, baby
Child, yeah, I'm like a child, like a child, like a child, babe
You think you're one of a special breed, you think that you're his pet Pekinese
I'll be your savior, steadfast and true
I'll come to your emotional rescue, I'll come to your emotional rescue

Yeah, I was dreaming last night, last night, I was dreaming
How you'd be mine, but I was crying, like a child, yeah, I was crying
Crying like a child, you could be mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, all mine
You could be mine, could be mine, could be mine, all mine
I come to you so silent in the night, so stealthy, so animal quiet
I'll be your savior, steadfast and true
I'll come to your emotional rescue, I'll come to your emotional rescue
Yeah, you should be mine, mine, ooh
Yes, you could be mine, tonight and every night
I will be your knight in shining armour, coming to your emotional rescue
You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine
You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine
I will be your knight in shining armour
Riding across the desert with a fine Arab charger

Produced by The Glimmer Twins

I used to think this song was weird and tasteless, but I've grown to like it. Jagger's vocal performance is pretty cool in many ways. He's always great when singing falsetto.

The song (and the whole record) are special to me because they were released right before I had to o my service in the army. I took a cassette with me and so it became my own special kind of emotional rescue.

such a pity they never played it live - seems unlikely now.

Brilliant, brilliant song. I used to think it was a poor man's Miss You, but it's not that at all. Brilliant mix of disco and dub.

I agree and believe that most Stones fans whether at the pool, in a car, or just meandering have at one time or another recited following verses in a deep voice " You will be mine You will be mine all mine...

ER is a great album and especially fit the times. It was fun college and summer music!

Where can we hear Keith's guitar? I hear some of Ronnie's in the ending, but haven't spotted Keith's yet...

love the album but the title song is one of those stones songs i cant really give a final statement about. sometimes i love it and sometimes it drives me mad. still think that the falseto was not the best idea for this song...but unlike lots of people, i do like the "shining armor-part"! ;-)

Excellent song............it's ot R&R, but has a lot of attitude.
First time i heard it i was very young, and i did'nt know RS's music. They played it in a skate disco in Dublin, and i was very surprised because i thought that RS's music was a kind of hard rock. This is a very nice dance song, cojonuda

Great memories with this one. One of their strangest songs, quirky, almost psychedelic disc. I remember though just getting into them with Some Girls, Exile, then Love You Live, and thinking I had to defend ER to my friends... but man smoking a big fattie and hearing ER blasting out of the car radio... love it!

Love it, especially the knight in shining armour bit, one of the great Stones classics, no doubt.

I loved it a lot when it 1st came out...They played it all the time in the clubs and bars and helped me pick up a lot of girls..I really didn't like to fast dance but i liked and could dance to this song..With the help of a few beer's...ha.
My friends used to kid me that it was "disco"....But i didn't care..I still think its one of the best songs the Stones ever did..
It's not your same old rock song. Very cool.

I thought it was quite charming back then, but when I hear it today I think it sounds a bit silly. Not easy to put a decent guitar riff on that one...

One of the worst songs the Stones ever did, terrible falsetto singing like the Bee Gees, a helter skelter of rhythm, boring melody, it's an emotional burnout!

Very controversial when it came out, but it has aged remarkably well. Good bass groove. Unusual in that there are almost no guitars.

makes one seriously wonder why it hasn't made the grade into the setlist in recent years, eh?

One of their best singles, has such a great recorded sound to it. I always loved the placement of this on the album right after Down in the Hole....

Not every song or every music must be guitar based; music is not a never ending guitar riff; even Stone's music is much reacher than that, this song shows how eclectic they can be.
Excellent song, very cojonuda

Hard to imagine Keith wanting to play this one live...just my conjecture. I think it would really work though.

why wouldn't he want to "play" it? he gets to pose galore and in this instance, at least, nobody notices the difference...

Since I am known as one of the biggest Ronnie-bashers here I thought it fair to say that I think his bass part on this track is very inventive. Stellar.

Ronnie Wood is cojonudo

I wonder why they didn't release a 12" of this. There's an extended version, which goes on for a minute longer. It's a slightly different mix with a longer instrumental outro - more keyboards. sax, bass and a few guitar licks, plus Jagger sighing and uh-huhing away. Bliss. Can't remember which bootleg it's on - maybe Static In The Attic.

Jagger wrote the song in Haiti. He was staying at the Hotel Oloffson with Jerry Hall during Carnival. The room he stayed in has been renamed in his honour.

It has guitar on it. It's just very low in the mix. Check out the alternate, extended mix (6.53 as opposed to the official 5.39) on Static On The Attic (I think).

Ronnie Wood's bass playing makes this song
