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


I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

No, 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 find
You get what you need

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 footloose 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 sometimes, well, 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're gonna blow a fifty-amp fuse"

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

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
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"
I said to him

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 you just might find
You get what you need

You get what you need, yeah, oh baby

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

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 you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need

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 you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need, oh yeah

And I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
And I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man
Now you can't always get what you want, alright
Now you can't (always get what you want)
That's right
Now you can't (always get what you want)
And if you try sometime, oh you just might find
You get what you need, oh yeah
And I went down to the demonstration, yeah
To get my fair share, get my fair shares of abuse
Singing, "We're gon' vent our frustration
And if we don't, we're gon' blow, we're gon' blow a fifty-amp fuse"
Yeah, you all know what I'm singing now
Come on y'all, I'll tell you all 'bout it now but
You can't always get what you want, yeah
Now you can't always get what you want, yeah
Now you can't always get what you want
And if you try sometime, yeah you just might find, yeah
You get what you need
Baby
True love
And I went down to the Chelsea Drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
Yeah man, did he look pretty ill
Yeah, we decided to have a soda
What's your favourite flavour? Cherry red
And I sung my song, sung my song to my friend Jimmy
And he said one word back to me, back to me, and that was, "Dead"
I said, come on
Now 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 if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need
Baby
True love, yeah
Alright
Oh yeah
Yeah, 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 if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need
Yeah

Oh yes (oh yes)
Oh yes (oh yes)
Oh yes (oh yes)
Ah, ah, ah (ah ah, ah)
Oh, oh, oh (oh, oh, oh)

True story- a reporter, vexed, once asked a female fan "what is it about this guy?" She replied, "He's so ugly, he's appealing."
