Did you know?

Richards sad that he and Jagger wrote the lyrics while staying at Richards' country house,
where they were awoken one morning by the sound of gardener Jack Dyer walking past the window.
When Jagger asked what the noise was, Richards responded: "Oh, that's Jack – that's jumpin' Jack."
The rest of the song evolved from there...
