Kelly Family – Don't Always Want lyrics

Nowadays people want more, more and so do I
My brother told me once
You always wnat what you don't have
But take a look at all the things you do have
So the reason why I wrote this song
Was to express what I think is wrong
I'd like to be just a little bit taller
I'd like to be just a little bit prettier
I'd like to be just a little bit stronger
But hey whatever
Don't always want what you don't have
But be grateful for what you have
Don't always want what you don't have
But be grateful for what you have
Well you can call me the consumator
'Cause I never stop
Feeding myself with all these obstacles untill I drop
I want a house, a fat cat, my own sauna and a pool
Have a yacht, my own piano and finally be cool
I'm like that kid screaming to his mama "I want that toy"
'Cause my filled room at home no longer gives me that joy
And I don't recommend myself as someone to employ
'Cause I want it all
I want the world just to leave me alone
Wanna move to New York and learn the saxophone
I wanna jam with Miles Davis and John Coltran
I've got so many wishes I think I'm going insane
But what the hell am I supposed to do
'Cause I'm trying real hard to undo all the emptiness inside me
Which is why I want so much
