Rip This Joint

Lyrics: Jagger, Richards
Music: Jagger, Richards

Sung by Alex Koford with Phil Lesh & the Terrapin Family Band at a Jazz Fest celebration in 2019.

Mama says yes, Papa says no
Make up your mind 'cause I gotta go
We're gonna raise hell at the Union Hall
Drive myself right over the wall
Rip this joint, gonna save your soul
Round and round and round we go
Roll this joint, gonna get down low
Start my starter, gonna stop the show

Mister President, Mister Immigration Man
Let me in, sweetie to your fair land
I'm Tampa bound and Memphis too
Short Fat Fanny is on the loose
Dig that sound on the radio
Then slip it right across into Buffalo
Dick and Pat in old DC
Well they're gonna hold some shit for me

Ying yang, you're my thing
Oh, now, baby, won't you hear me sing
Flip flop, fit to drop
Come on baby, won't you let it rock

From San Jose down to Santa Fe
Kiss me quick, baby, won'tcha make my day
New Orleans with the Dixie Dean
To Dallas, Texas with the Butter Queen
Rip this joint, gonna rip yours too
Some brand new steps and some weight to lose
Gonna roll this joint, gonna get down low
Round and round and round we'll go
Wham, bam, Birmingham, Alabam' don't give a damn
Little Rock and I'm fit to top
Oh, let it rock
