You first found me in my holding pen, stopped to take a look and stuck your
Finger in
I bit one off and you came back again & again,
Then the nice people let me out one day and you told me how to act and what to
Say
But you never get what you wanted that way did you baby?
You never get what you want
You never get what you want and i don't think it's my fault
You never get what you want, do you baby?
Everything's always such a mystery, including your sad little history
Do you still think someone should take responsibility and pay
Ever since I've know you you've walked, that walk you've broken all the
Records now you've broken all the clocks
And everytime it breaks my heart to hear you talk this way
You never get what you want
You never get what you want and i don't think it's my fault
You never get what you want, do you baby?
Everybody's been sad, everybody's been tragic
Whole lot of hard times, whole little bit of magic
These bitter bitter fruits and these endless hallways they're killing us baby
We gotta walk away, walk away
You never get what you want
You never get what you want
You spend your whole time thinkin 'bout why i'm so deranged
Well honey, why don't you think about that for a change?
You never get what you want, you never get what you want
Your whole damn life, you never get what you want
Not your whole damn life you never get what you want
And i don't think it's my fault, you never get what you want
Do you baby?
