Music Video Lesson - The Rolling Stones 'Ruby Tuesday'

Average: 4 (7 votes)

By now you all know I have an obsession with songs that tell stories.

I also have a small obsession with The Rolling Stones and this is one of my favourite songs.

One of the reasons I love it so much is because the choreographer Christopher Bruce created this dance to it and I learnt the dance for an exam.

Listen to the song and see if you can complete the gaps with the correct words. Then tell us what you think of the song and the dance.

Ruby Tuesday Lyrics

She would never say where she came from
_1_ don't matter if it's gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the _2_ night
No one knows
She comes and goes

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still Im gonna miss you...

Don't question why she needs to be so _3_
She’ll tell you it's the only way to be
She just can't be chained
To a life where nothings _4_
And nothings lost
At such a _5_

There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
_6_ all the time
Lose your _7_
And you will lose your _8_
Ain't life unkind?

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still Im gonna miss you...
