It's a cover of a James Bond theme (from On Her Majesty's Secret Service, 1969), originally sung by Louis Armstrong and written by John Barry and Hal David. - Lotuscandy

I add this as a comment, because it wasn't published as a reply:

To be precise, what was a sample from an obscure orchestral version of The Last Time (by Andrew Oldham Orchestra) became, with the help of very good lawyers, a goldmine for the Stones. After he had to sell his rights as lyricist for a thousand dollars (it was that or they had to take it out of the shops), Richard Ashcroft commented "This is the best song Jagger and Richards have written in 20 years".

I really appreciate your lists and your knowledge Metal_Treasure, plus you made me discover really nice stuff, but here I think that the word "ripoff" is a bit much, for what is the most lucrative sample in history. - Lotuscandy

Unfortunately this is a ripoff song and a lawsuit credited it back to The Rolling Stones. - Metal_Treasure
