You Don't Know What You've Got
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Lyrics


I was caught so unaware
When you made other plans
Promises you swore to keep
Where more than you could stand

You don't know what you've got
You don't know what you've got
You don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
I can't stand to hear your name
'Cause you were so unkind
And though you think you made out well
Someday you will find

You don't know what you've got
You don't know what you've got
You don't know what you've got
Till it's gone

Shame on you, I gave you love
I gave you love so true
But you ran away
So you just don't know what cha' blew

Yeah, yeah
You don't know what you've got
Oh baby
You don't know what you've got

I thought I knew you
You don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
You don't know what you've got

You don't know what you've got
You don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
I was weak when you were there

And I felt so protected
But I'll make sure that you regret
The one that you rejected
You don't know what you've got

You don't know what you've got
You don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
Oh baby

You really blew it
Oh baby
I thought you knew me
Oh baby

Oh baby

I bought the 45 record (remember those!?) to Joan Jett's "I Love Rock N' Roll" and side B was this song. That was in the early '80s and it was the first time I heard the song, and 35+ years later...I've NEVER forgotten this song and still love it

Jeff Evans

That is not the same version on the B-side of I Love Rock n Roll.

This is FANTASTIC!!!  Thanks for Sharing.  During this period I had dreams about this angel and nearly 37 years later I am still dreaming about her.

The first time I saw Joan Jett was in 1980 when she and the Blackhearts opened for Iggy Pop. Her first solo album was on sale in the club, still on her own Blackheart label. Still have it in my collection. She'll always be one of the best rockers of the era.
