You Can't Always Get What You Want

By Jagger/Richards

Choir:

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.

 

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 you just might find

You'll get what you need.

 

I went down to the demonstration,

To get my fair share of abuse

Singing "we're gonna vent our frustrations,

And if we don't we're gonna blow a 50-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 you might find

You'll 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,

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'll get what you need.

 

You'll 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 bloodstained 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'll 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'll get what you need
