- A rare set of Mick Jagger handwritten Rolling Stones lyrics
- Written for a previously unknown, unpublished song
- Believed to date from a significant period, circa 1965
A small sheet of lined paper, featuring handwritten lyrics by Mick Jagger on both sides. Jagger has written the lyrics in blue ballpoint ink.
Sheet measures 5 x 8 inches, and remains in excellent condition.
This unsigned set of lyrics is believed to date from 1965, during the earliest days of Jagger's career as a songwriter.
In September 1965 Jagger and Keith Richards wrote the original Stones song 'Sittin' on a Fence' during a tour of Ireland.
And notably, the song features the line:
“But there is one thing I could never understand,
Some of the sick things that a girl does to a man”.
The present manuscript features the almost identical line:
“I said my little girl, you wouldn't understand,
Some of the sick things a girl does to a man”.
It's highly unlikely that Jagger would later reuse an identical line from a song the Stones had already recorded.
Which directly points to him writing these lyrics before he wrote Sittin' on a Fence, prior to September 1965.
As such, this manuscript is a significant piece of Rolling Stones history, written by Jagger during arguably the most important period of his songwriting career.
In 1965 The Rolling Stones had their first original #1 hit, and made the transition from a blues cover band to a pop band famous around the world.
Jagger and Keith Richards went on to become one of pop music's greatest songwriting partnerships.
A superb piece of rock and roll history.
