this is a rare Stones song that treats women as equals. This isn’t about a specific woman, most stones songs are usually inspired by one or many of Keith or Mick’s muses.
Keith is given writing credit on this song but many of the lyrics were improvised in the studio. While the band played, Jagger came in with different lines to fit the music.
Ron Wood says “That’s one that just came very naturally in the studio. I slipped into my part and Keith had his going. It may have appeared as though it was planned. We can pick it up today and it will just naturally slip into the groove again with the guitars weaving in a special way. It’s quite amazing really. Ever since Keith and I first started to trade licks, it was a very natural thing that, for some unknown reason, if he’s playing up high, I’m down low and the other way around. We cross over very naturally. We call it an ancient form of weaving– which we still are impressed by it to this day. Unexplainable, wonderful things happen with the guitar weaving. There’s no plan.”
This was during the time when Keith was just coming back into the fold after slipping deep into his drug addiction, after he had been charged with heroin possession in Toronto. Keith had wacked out of his mind for the better part of a year while been facing serious jail. After Keith had been let off with probation and the promise of a concert for the blind. Keith sobered up and went back to his band but the whole time Keith was gone Mick had been running the band in a more monetarily incentivized way.
When Keith finally returned to the band and the studio in proper form Keith had this song as kind of an homage to Mick for having to carry the band while Keith was strung out on heroin: “All your sickness I can suck it up, throw it all at me, I can shrug it off.”
The definition of the title is an animal that labors for the benefit of man, like an ox or a pack mule.

Why it’s perfectly normal to want to kill your boss:
Criminal psychologist reveals fantasizing about murder is a ‘common phenomenon’
Criminal psychologist says thoughts of killing are an entirely human reaction
Dr Julia Shaw says generally more than half of people fantasized about murder
Some psychologists even say that a killing fantasy helps us to function better
In fact, it’s perfectly normal to imagine killing someone – and more than half of us have done it.
Dr Shaw told the Cheltenham Science Festival: ‘Murder fantasies are an empathy exercise.
‘You think things through, you imagine what the consequences would be like, you imagine what it might be like to actually go through with it… and guess what your decision generally is? – ‘I don’t want to do that, because those are not the consequences I would like. ‘As human beings we’ve evolved intelligence, this ability to plan and to predict what outcomes might emerge from our behavior, and that’s a critical piece of humanity.’
While many of us daydream about killing others, only about 1 per cent of the population are believed to be psychopaths – and only a tiny minority of psychopaths will actually go on to be violent or kill someone.
Great Moments in Canadian Politics
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his government will ban single-use plastics — which could include bags, straws and cutlery — in Canada in 2021 at the earliest.
“We need to cover all of Canada with this decision and that’s why the federal government is moving forward on a science-based approach to establishing which harmful single-use plastics we will be eliminating as of 2021,”
then he was asked “What do you and your family do to cut back on plastics?”
