Mick Jagger - Gotta Get A Grip Lyrics

Gotta get a grip
Beat it with a stick
Gotta get a grip
She goin' for the hit
THe world is upside down
Everybody lunatics and clowns
No one speaks the truth
And madhouse runs the town
Well you gotta get a grip
Beat it with a stick
You gotta get a grip

Everybody's stuffing their pockets
Everybody's on the take
The news is all fake
Let 'em eat chicken and let 'em eat steak
Let 'em eat shit, let 'em eat cake
You gotta get a grip
You gotta get a grip
You gotta keep it zipped
And shoot 'em from the hip
Yeah, yeah, you gotta get a grip
Beat it with a stick

I tried diversion and I tried coercion
Mediation and medication
LA culture and aquapuncture
Overeating and sex in meetings
Induced insanity, Christianity
Long walks and fast drives
And wild clubs and low dives
I pushed and I strived
But I can't get you, can't get you
Can't get you out of my mind
Gotta get a grip

Oh you, oh you
Oh you, beat it with a stick
Immigrants are pouring in
Refugees under your skin
Keep 'em under, keep 'em out
Intellectual, shut your mouth
Beat 'em with a stick
Oh you
Gotta get a grip
Gotta get a grip
Chaos crisis instability, ISIS
Lies and scandals, wars and vandals
Metadata scams and policy shams
Put 'em in a slammer
Gotta get a grip
Gotta get a grip
Come on

    La introducción es muy similar a la introducción de Learning to fly de Pink Floyd 🤔🤔

  20. kontent provyder

    First things the stones do when staying in a new city is build an 8 foot tall fence around their rental property to keep out fans and paparazzi. Anti-wall lyrics quite amusing.

  21. Mark Burns

    he still sounds like mick which is great but everything else is terrible.. either way this sounds like i song written in a day by some hipster producer and then Mick just came in and sang the lyrics

  29. ShadowKitteh

    didnt know this song existed, but now i did, i therefore associate this with the son from hotline miami 2.

  69. Verónica L. Lian Maseras

    Jagger, with his mate Elton et al, singing about Politics?
    They tell us NOTHING of what they should know,
    Mick the wanker!

  70. Jacob Gamble

    How does this not even have 1M views yet

  71. Tina Marie Stinnett

    Mick sings about immigration and ISIS in this video. Apparently no one heard that but me. I hope our youth does get a grip 'cause that's what has happened to Englandistan.. "beat'em with a stick".. hm.. who does that anyway?



  73. Gonzalo Arvietti

    video is so 90's
    love it!!!

  74. Jutta Güttler

    The youg generation( with their "trance music") has to have this thoughts and talk about it!!!!!

    He is a person with a very good IQ!!!!

  75. Vector Wanted

    The son's theme


    May god bless his soul. Hope he has grips in heaven.

    terence francis

    What on earth makes you want to believe there is some invisible celestial dictator in the sky?

  76. Grzegorz Sadowski

    but what is this video about? any ideas?

  77. martin wanko

    Best after 2:45 min. Why is is not a new Stones Number? It's cool - but Mick, I'm waiting very Long of the Tour-Shirts I have orderd in your store.

  78. mister_

    Take it easy on those pills, Boss.


    Local man went on a rampage, killing the new masked killers and russian mobsters just to obtain grips.

    Cher Baker

    Hm I don't get it! Mick telling the raw, bare truth , automatically makes him " takin too many pills!" Maybe he can see "reality" now &. he doesn't care if you like it or not! Maybe take a closer look @ yourself and you will see others differently! Peace and love to all of you ❣️.


    @Cher Baker its a reference to the game hotline miami 2, where a protagonist, "the son" takes one to many experimental pills and goes on murder spree, halfway through he exclaims that he has "gotta get a grip"

    David W. Smiecinski

    @Cher Baker Bruh. We're just referencing the final level in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, where the player controls a Russian mob boss who has overdosed on some unspecified pill conveniently at the same time as a group known as "the fans" is raiding his complex. One of his trippiest lines is when a giant version of his head appears and screams, "GOTTA GET A GRIIIIIIIIIIP" before sucking him in. We have no quarrel for this singer/song writer

  79. Bill Stoneking

    Yep... pretty much it .

    Fantastic video, I love it ! Anybody know what kind of lenses did they use?

  90. Thora Friganza

    They were wonderful and exciting last week on their little Europe tour, particularly Mick was amazing and here too his voice is great and I've been waiting for new music from some of them but still I just can't quite warm up to these two song, perhaps Mick released them because Keith hated them lol, Blue and Lonesome atleast was great even if covers.

  91. hans van de mortel

    This is no place for muslims. Muslims are not allowed to enjoy or play music. The backward religion of pagan rituals and to sponge on our civilization is the only religion in the world which forbids to drink beer or wine or any other kind of alcohol pleasure.

  92. Michael Kuntze

    Ye, done it again!!!
