From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
“Look What the Cat Dragged In” is the reproach used by the narrator of this
song to his girlfriend, who evidently has a strong inclination toward
independence. We are told that she likes to go out drinking, and loves to
have a good time… The spurned lover then launches into a litany of
criticisms of his partner. Her hair’s all over the place and her breath’s got a
horrible taste after she has spent the weekend partying. He is alone in the
morning reading the paper about what was happening in Syria and
Lebanon. Mick Jagger seems to be venting a great deal of bitterness here.
Unless it is simply an example of his irony: the woman out having a good
time while the man stays at home, which would perhaps be something out
of the ordinary in the world of the Stones…
