Jumpin’ Jack Flash


by Jagger/Richards

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain
But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!
But it’s all right. I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash,
It’s a gas! Gas! Gas!

I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag,
I was schooled with a strap right across my back,
But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!
But it’s all right, I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash,
It’s a gas! Gas! Gas!

I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead.
I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled.
I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread.
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I was crowned with a spike right thru my head.
But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!
But it’s all right, I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash,
It’s a gas! Gas! Gas!

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas
Jumping Jack Flash

Jumpin’ Jack Flash è una delle canzoni più famose dei Rolling Stones pubblicata come singolo nel 1968. Nella lista The 500 Greatest Songs of All Times al #124 posto. Il pezzo fu visto come un ritorno della band alle loro radici blues dopo la pubblicazione dell’album Their Satanic Majesties Request; raggiunse il primo posto in classifica in UK e il terzo negli USA. La canzone venne registrata durante la sessione in studio del successivo album Beggars Banquet anche se poi il brano non fu incluso nel disco. Per la cadenza plagale utilizzata nel brano, Mick Jagger ha dichiarato di essersi ispirato ad alcune composizioni di Lou Reed, come Heroin o Venus in Furs. La canzone è tra le più popolari del gruppo, infatti viene suonata regolarmente a ogni concerto e, nonostante apparve solo come singolo, fu inclusa in molte raccolte, come Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol.2), Hot Rocks e Forty Licks.
