The Rolling Stones
[A hand-drawn cartoon panel about the Rolling Stones called "Between the Buttons" transcribed as follows:]
"(to understand this little rhyme/ you first must tap your foot in time. /then the buttons come much nearer/ and the Stones you see more clearer)
1: (a mob chanting "we want the Stones!" 3x) 'Between the Buttons' started as a laugh/ but pretty soon turned into a farce.
2: (four people talking: "In all my years in showbusiness," "Are they for real?..." "all head and no bread," "wait till I tell my wife...." ) 'Between the Buttons' between the fibres/ we know a lot have called us liars.
3: (two people talking) "say is that a boy or a girl?...") 'Between the Buttons' behind the dirt/ you know at times you've often hurt.
4: (Rolling Stones headliner above a sign that reads 'Sold Out.' A business man grins and says "you know they ain't so bad after all") 'Between the Buttons' at last did fit/ and so to prove it here they sit.
5: (a speaker blares "have you seen your mother baby." One guy says "well I like it" and the other, looking perplexed, scratches his head saying "well I don't know")
'Between the Buttons' on the ledge/ do seem at times to go over the edge.
6: (a two-faced man first says "they ain't and never will be... what do they think they're up to now..." then exclaims "Hi Mick! love your latest..." )
But, before you hand us the cup/ count your buttons before doing them up"
"This is the back of our new LP... what do we say... Just listen."
