You're looking good baby, I love to see my baby smile
You're looking good baby, I love to see my baby smile
You say you love me now, but, you've got another man on the side

You're always hungry, you always want to drink
I love you so much baby, but I begin to think
Come here baby, I can see the glint in your eye
You say you love me now, but, you've got a fancyman on the side, that’s right

I love to dance with my baby, I love to while away the time
I love to dance with my baby, I love to while away the time
You've got some new steps now, but, you've got a fancyman on the side, alright

Yeah, you're looking good baby, I love to see my honey smile
You're looking good baby, I love to see my baby smile
You say you love me now, but, you've got a fancyman on the side, get out

Great blues , a fancyman blues. By that time, and after the release of undercover and DW, this kind of tunes were fresh air for us

well-executed, basic 12-bar stuff...not exactly pushing the envelope, though....

i like this tune . i for one wish that the glimmers recorded more 12-bar blues songs on there albums .for instance i think fancyman blues would have been better than that lame song that was trying to be passed off as a blues tune on abb

I remember listening to this once, but I prefer the cover of "Precious Love" from the same sessions.

true. but in both cases, you got the stones basically playing to a formula. in their glory years, when they did the blooze, they'd craft something all their own. to be fair, i would regard both Might as Well Get Juiced and Break the Spell as worthy endeavors of blooze songs that don't just follow the formula....

Who cares about the boringness of them doing this kind of tune - listen to Keith - some great guitar work going on in this tune.

has it come to this? they've so bored so many of us that we look past the bland and toward any redeeming quality?

Wow, do I love this track. Such a PERFECT sound to it ... the guitars, the harp. And what a seductive groove, Charlie right in the pocket along with Bill. Mick's vocal, channeling the great bluesmen from the past. Phenomenal lyrics. Keith and Ronnie never sounding better.

An overlooked masterpiece, if you ask me.

great song and another example of something left off that should have been on a record.

this song is another example of how great the stones really are. they can pull of the blues, country, reggae, rock, funk, dance and do it all VERY WELL. how many other bands can do his? not many ,if any.
