Ev'rywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in The street, boy But what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band Cause in sleepy London town There's just no place for a street fighting man No. Hey! Think the time is right for a palace revolution But where I live the game to play is compromise solution Well, then what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band Cause in sleepy London town There's no place for a street fighting man No. Hey! . Take me to the station And put me on a train I've got no expectations To pass through here again Once I was a rich man Now I am so poor. But never in my sweet short life Have I felt like this before You heart is like a diamond You throw your pearls at swine And as I watch you leaving me You pack my peace of mind.
In fact, "Street Fighting Man" reached on the Cash Box Top 100, a more reliable indicator of actual sales than the Billboard Hot 100. Today, copies of the record are common and easily purchased on the Internet. The picture sleeve, however, is another story: apparently it was never released commercially. But Decca of Denmark designed a picture sleeve (Decca F-22825) using the same photo that appeared on the "No Expectations" side of the American sleeve (London 45-909). This is also a rather rare item and sells for hundreds of dollars in collectable condition.

The early 60s blues scene was a purists’ movement, but their second album demonstrates how eclectic and boundary-blurring the early Stones were, boldly defining a space of their own somewhere between blues, rock’n’roll and soul, amping up the pace and the attitude of each to thrilling effect. 10. Blue & Lonesome (2016). Street Fighting Man and Sympathy For the Devil seem buoyed by the turbulence of the era while Brian Jones provides his own epitaph with No Expectations’ desolate slide guitar. 2. Exile on Main Street (1972). Does Sticky Fingers or its murky, sprawling successor represent the Stones’ zenith? It’s a photo finish: Sticky Fingers has more focus, Exile more breadth and a more primal, physical thrill, Jagger’s voice fighting for space amid the rush of sound.
