New York was cold and damp, TV is just a blank
Looks like another dead end Sunday
What about an early night? Monday never feels so bright
Ooh the sheets feel cold and lonely

Who wants to brave the pouring rain for a glass of French champagne?
Well, grab a cab, grab a cab and, baby, come right by

And she was hot as she kissed my mouth
She was hot as I wiped her brow
She was hot, she pinned me to the ground
She was quick, she knew her way around

She was hot and she tore my clothes
She was hot, she had no place to go
She was hot on a cold and rainy night

Detroit was smoky gray, nothing like the good old days
I've got a fever that I'm fighting
I don't need your company, leave me in my misery
I can take the rebound just like lightning

And she was hot in a '50s dress
She was hot, her lips were flashing red
I was lost in her burning flesh
I was hot, I was dripped in sweat

She was hot in the Detroit snow
She was hot, she had no place to go
She was hot on a cold and rainy night

Whoo!


And she was hot and I had the blues
She was hot - honey, where were you?
If you were in my shoes
You would be excused

She was hot, you can never wait
She was hot, never hesitate
She was hot on a cold and rainy night

Think I'm going off the rails, riding down the pleasure trail
Always take the passion where you find it
Honey when you're young or fresh and you need the touch of flesh
Go take the treasure where you find it

And she was hot in the melted snow
She was hot in the molten glow
She was hot, she got it in the blood
She was hot like a dam that's burst

She was strong, she was strong and true
She was black and her eyes were blue
She was lost and she took a chance
She's just a brief romance

Down the avenue, into the lost bayou
Into the tall bamboo, back to the human zoo
I wish you all the best, I hope we meet again
In a cold Chicago night
 
She was hot, she was hot
She was hot, hot, hot, she was hot, hot, hot
She was hot, hot, hot, she was hot, hot, hot
She was hot, hot, hot, she was hot, hot, hot

She was hot, hot, hot, she was hot, hot, hot...

She Was Hot, that's not particularly strange. That's a love-on-the-road type of song. I quite like that one.

- Mick Jagger, 1983


She Was Hot is a bit of a on-the-road song. You know, Detroit was smoky grey, nothing like the good old days or something. It's a bit of a road song, which I hate - road songs - normally. But, I mean, that's your experience so you draw on it.

- Mick Jagger, 1984
