Rolling Stones You Can't Always Get What You Want Lyrics



You Can't Always Get What You Want Lyrics

Rolling Stones

  • Well, I saw her today at the reception
  • A glass of wine in her hand
  • I knew she would go meet her connection
  • At her feet was her footloose man
  • No, you can't always get what you want
  • No, you can't always get what you want
  • No, you can't always get what you want
  • But if you try sometime, you just might find
  • You get what you need
  • And I went down to the demonstration
  • To get my fair shares of abuse
  • Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
  • And if we don't, we don't blow a 50-amp fuse", yeah
  • And no, you can't always get what you want
  • No, you can't always get what you want
  • Well, no, you can't always get what you want
  • But if you try sometimes you just might find
  • You get what you need, baby
  • And I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
  • To get your prescriptions filled
  • I was standin' in line with Mr. Jimmy
  • And man, did he look pretty ill
  • We decided to have a soda
  • "Whatcha favorite flavor?", "Cherry red"
  • And I sung my song to my friend Jimmy
  • And he said one word back to me, that was "Dead"
  • I said
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • But if you try sometimes, you just might find
  • You get what you need
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • You can't always get what you want
  • You can't always get what you want
  • You can't always get what you want
  • And I saw her today at the reception
  • In her glass was a bleeding man
  • And she was practised that the art of deception
  • I could tell by her blood-stained hands
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • Oh, you can't always get what you want
  • But if you try sometimes you just might find
  • You get what you need
