From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
There are limits to friendship and love, limits clearly defined in “One More
Try.” Attempt to borrow a little money and suddenly those who claimed to
be your friends will no longer recognize you. Where one’s private life is
concerned, it’s the same story: You bring her all the things she wants, she
don’t improve, sings Jagger in the second verse. The moral of this tale can
be summed up in just a few words: Sit down, shut up, don’t dare to cry!
“One More Try” was recorded at the RCA Studios on May 12–13, 1965,
the same session as “The Spider and the Fly,” “Good Times,” “Cry to Me,”
and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Why was this song used on the versions
of Out of Our Heads destined for the United States and continental Europe
but not on the British version? It is a mystery (unless explained by the fact
that the deadline for the British pressing did not allow for inclusion)
because it is a highly successful song (although very short) and is
characteristic of the blues-rock the Stones used to play in the middle of the
