Ah...

Yeah, I got some tail

I hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs
I know you're no scare-eyed honey.
There'll be a feast if you just come upstairs
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

I can see that you're fifteen years old
No I don't want your I.D.
I can see that you're so far from home
But that's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, don'tcha scratch like that
Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
I Bet, bet your mama don't know you scream like that
I bet your mother don't know you can spit like that.

You look so weird and so lost from home
But you don't really miss your mother
Don't look so scared I'm not no mad-brained bear
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime
Oh, yeah
Woo!

I bet your mama don't know that you scatch like that
I bet she don't know you can bite like that.

You say you got a girlfriend, that she's wilder than you
Why don't you bring her upstairs
If she's so wild then she can join in too
It's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, don'tcha scratch like that
Oh yeah, you're a strange stray cat
I bet you mama don't know you can bite like that
I'll bet she never saw you scratch my back

Obviously some of the best Jagger lyrics ever.

On second thought, why are the lyrics so good on Beggars?
I know Jagger can come up with some great stuff, but this album is lyrically charged.
And what is the motivation for a song like Dear Doctor or Factory Girl? The lyrics are so "tongue in cheek" towards Americana they're almost humorous.
It's interesting to wonder what was motivating these guys during the recording of this record.
