From the Rolling Stones – All the Songs, The Story Behind Every Track book:
Mick Jagger adopts his best cockney accent to evoke the lives of young British working-class men: football on Monday and Tuesday, beer in the pub on Saturday morning. Saturday evening, on the other hand, is party time: the boys are all off to the disco, where they dance and hope to get a nice piece of ass. And neither do the girls think about anything other than having a good time. This is another song in the spirit of pub rock (with a nod to Dr. Feelgood and Nick Lowe?) that afforded the Rolling Stones an opportunity to teach the punks a thing or two… “Where the Boys Go” was recorded in January 1978 during the Some Girls sessions, but was ultimately left off the album. After that it was reworked many times.
