Rolling Stones – Dance Little Sister

If this doesn’t get you going on a Sunday morning nothing will. Dance Little Sister was the B side to “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” released in 1974. Thank goodness for B sides like this.

This is a great album track by the Stones. Keith Richard’s rhythm guitar just drives you in the ground…it is relentless. Dance Little Sister was on the It’s Only Rock and Roll Album and it’s an album that to me…wasn’t up to the previous five albums standards. One reason could be that Jimmy Miller was not the producer. I do like the album though…it has the great title track and some other good songs…including this one.

The album peaked at #1 in the Billboard Album Chart, #5 in Canada, and #2 in the UK in 1974,

Tracks like this make the Stones the Stones. Turn it up to 11 and have a great Sunday.

Dance Little Sister

On Thursday night she looked a fright
Her pricky hair all curled, oh what a sight
Dance, dance, little sister, dance

On Friday night, she all decked out
Her high heel shoes, her dress so tight
Dance, dance little sister, dance

On Saturday night she bass-a-dee
She stepping high on Frederick’s Street
Dance, dance, little sister, dance

I said, “Dance, dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance”
I said, “Dance, dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance”

It make me hot, I wet with sweat
It burn like hell, I’ve four hours left
Dance, dance little sister, dance

Get next to me, drive me close
Don’t mammaguay, I lose control
Dance, dance with fire, dance

I said, “Dance, dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance”
I said, “Dance, dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance”

Ah, jump out of Africa
With a step that looks so bold
Ah, when you’re kickin’ high
It make my blood run cold

I said, “Dance, dance little sister, dance
Dance little sisters, dance
Dance little sister, dance”
I said, “Dance, dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance”

I said, “Dance, dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance
Dance little sister, dance”

On Saturday night we don’t go home
We bacchanal, ain’t no dawn
Dance, little sister, dance

I said, “Dance, dance little sister
Dance little sister
Dance little sister, dance”
I said, “Dance, dance little sister
Dance little sister
Dance little sister, dance”

    1. We played this in the 90s…this one never lets up. One of the first songs I learned with G tuning.
