"You Can't Always Get What You Want" lyrics

You Can't Always Get What You Want

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 a 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 a 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
Oh, yeah

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
Oh, baby
Yeah

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mister 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 Mister 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
Oh, yeah

You get what you need
Yeah
Oh, baby
Oh, yeah

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
Oh, yeah
Oh, baby

You can't always get what you want
No, no, baby
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 that
You get what you need
