I saw what you did that's untold
Glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would make her connection
At her feet was a full loose man
Chorus:
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'll get what you need.
You'll get what you need
Well I went down to the demonstration
Just to get my best share of abuse
Singing 'were gonna bounce our frustration
And if we don't, we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse'
Chorus:
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'll get what you need.
You'll get what you need
Well I went to the Chelsea drugstore
Just to get your prescribtion filled
I was in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, man did he look ill
We decided that we should get a cola
My favorite flavor cherry red
I sang my song to Mr. Jimmy
And he said one word to me and that was 'dead'
And I said to him
Chorus:
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'll get what you need.
You'll get what you need.
I saw what you did in Reception
In a glass was a bleeding man
She was practice in the arts of deception
You can tell by the blood stains on her hands
Chorus:
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 might find
You'll get what you need.
Chorus:
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 might find
You'll get what you need.
You'll get what you need
