It is the Rolling Stones\u2019 most frequently played song during concerts, and serves as a crowd pleaser every time. This song signaled the band\u2019s return to their blues style of music, and gained great momentum for the group. Covers of the song have been performed by various famous artists like Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner. Do you know where the inspiration for this song came from? Well, Jumping Jack came from the name Jack Dyer. And who is Jack Dyer, exactly? Well, he is actually Keith Richard\u2019s gardener. When Mick Jagger heard footsteps by his window, he asked Richards who it was. And he said, \u201c Oh, that\u2019s Jack. That\u2019s Jumping Jack.\u201d And the rest, is history. Lyrics for 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' I was born in a cross-fire hurricane And I howled at my ma in the driving rain But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas But it's all right. I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash It's a gas! Gas! Gas I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag I was schooled with a strap right across my back But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash It's a gas! Gas! Gas I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead Fell down to my feet and I saw they bled I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread Yeah, yeah, yeah I was crowned with a spike right thru my head But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash It's a gas! Gas! Gas Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas Jumpin' Jack Flash, its a gas Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas Jumping Jack Flash They rock it again here in 1998 If you have a second, check out this longer set RELATED: The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
