I am now thinking - did they change the lyric...?

They may not have done

Calling a Stones expert please...!

I know they changed the lyrics on the Sullivan show, not sure about the London Palladium.

I've always thought Jagger's lyrics about women made him a creep.

Never even occurred to me that misogyny was defensible as some sort of "bad boy" or "rebellious" thing because treating women like crap is not exactly a bold deviation from the norm. I suppose it's "edgy" in the most contemptible way. Kicking down.

I always figured he thought it made him cool because it expressed some bluesman b.s. "my mean old lady" trope. It's still a load.
