Em Abril de 2003, os Rolling Stones actuaram pela primeira vez na China, mas excluiram do seu repertório a apresentação dos temas "Brown Sugar", "Honky Tonk Women, "Beast of Burden" e "Let's spend the night together", a pedido do governo chinês. Aliás, os mesmos 4 temas proibidos foram retirados da edição chinesa de "Forty Licks" que nesse mesmo ano comemorava os 40 anos da banda.

Recorde-se também que logo no ano de lançamento de "Let's spend the night together", em 1967, este havia sido recusado nas estações de rádio dos Estados Unidos da América, pelo que o grupo acabou por fazer uma versão com as palavras Let's Spend Some Time Together.

Terá sido o medo da noite ou o medo da língua a razão da censura?



LETS SPEND THE NIGHT TOGETHER

(Jagger/Richards)

My, My, My, My
Don't you worry 'bout what's on your mind (Oh my)
I'm in no hurry I can take my time (Oh my)
I'm going red and my tongue's getting tied (tongues's getting tied)
I'm off my head and my mouth's getting dry.
I'm high, But I try, try, try (Oh my)
Let's spend the night together
Now I need you more than ever
Let's spend the night together now

I feel so strong that I can't disguise (oh my)
Let's spend the night together
But I just can't apologize (oh no)
Let's spend the night together
Don't hang me up and don't let me down (don't let me down)
We could have fun just groovin' around around and around
Oh my, my
Let's spend the night together
Now I need you more than ever
Let's spend the night together

Let's spend the night together
Now I need you more than ever

You know I'm smiling baby
You need some guiding baby
I'm just deciding baby; now-
I need you more than ever
Let's spend the night together
Let's spend the night together now

This doesn't happen to me ev'ryday (oh my)
Let's spend the night together
No excuses offered anyway (oh my)
Let's spend the night together
I'll satisfy your every need (every need)
And I now know you will satisfy me
Oh my, my, my, my, my
Let's spend the night together
Now I need you more than ever
Let's spend the night together now
