You Can't Always Get What You Want Lyrics
I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection,
At her feet was her foot-loose man.

You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometime,
You might find you get what you need!

And I went down to the demonstration to get my fair share of abuse,
Singing, We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't we'll blow a fifty amp fuse (sing it to me)

You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes,
Well you just might find you get what you need! (aw baby yeah, aw)

I went down to the Chelsea Drugstore, to get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda,
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy,
And he said one word to me and that was dead
I said to him,

You can't always get what you want, (no)
You can't always get what you want (tell me baby)
You can't always get what you want (no)
But if you try sometimes,
You just might find you get what you need!

You get what you need! (yeah! aw baby aw yeah)

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practised at the art of deception,
Well, I could tell by her blood-stained hands (sing it)

You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometime,
You just might find, you just might find,
You get what you need! (aw yeah, aw baby)

You can't always get what you want, baby
You can't always get what you want,
You cant always get what you want,
But if you try sometime,
You just might find, you just might find,
You get what you need!
