Do you have words like Jagger? You may be able to find out soon - as a batch of handwritten letters from Rolling Stones star Mick Jagger go on auction next month.

The letters were written to his former lover, Marsha Hunt. The American-born singer gave birth to his first child - and was the inspiration for the Stones' 1971 hit "Brown Sugar." Sotheby's says Hunt has turned over 10 letter letters from Jagger written in 1969.

The handwritten letters are part of a group of writings from Jagger that are expected to fetch between $111,300 and $159,000 when auctioned.
