All I want to do is to get back to you

Connection, I just can't make no connection
But all I want to do is to get back to you

Everything is going in the wrong direction
The doctor wants to give me more injections
Giving me shots for a thousand rare infections
And I don't know if he'll let me go

Connection, I just can't make no connection
And all I want to do is to get back to you

Connection, I just can't make it - connection
All I want to do is to get back to you

My bags they get a very close inspection
I wonder why it is that they suspect them
They're dying to add me to their collection
And I don't know if they'll let me go

Connection, I just can't make no connection
And all I want to do is to get back to you

Connection, I just can't make no connection
And all I want to do is to get back to you

Connection, I just can't make no connection
And all I want to do is to get back to you

That's me beating the bass drums with my hands.

Oh yes, there IS another one (on Between The Buttons) that's good called Connection, which is more or less Keith on his own. Yeah, that's a good one...

- Mick Jagger, 1974


Connection is really nice.
