Words Of Wonder Lyrics

by Keith Richards

Now listen to me, baby
I keep it on so low
And I whisper to you, sister
Now we're all alone

Take no notice of me, baby
Like a dream gonna keep it quit
So I can hear you scream
Words of wonder
Are the words I wanna hear

I'm sticking to you, baby, until I arrive
I'm half dead, a quarter alive
A little bit is missing
Wonder where it's gone
Pay me no attention, I babble on and on

Words, these words of wonder
Are the words I wanna hear
Those words, the words of wonder
They are the words I wanna hear

Dripping from your lips
Yeah, that's the way it goes
That's the way it comes
Ya' know what I mean
Now that your talkin' to me, baby
Still you say that I'm obscene

Words, words of wonder
They are the words I wanna hear
Words, those words of wonder
Are the words I wanna hear

Let me roll it over, baby
Now I got to jam it up
Make you weep and moan
Go around the back, baby
And make yourself known

The words, these are words of wonder
These are the words you better learn
These are words, these words of wonder
These are words, you ought to know

You been talkin' to me, sweetie
You know I babble on and on
Ooh, I run away my tongue
Giving thanks and praises

Low friends in high places
I'm gonna whisper these words of wonder
