From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs 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.
