The Rolling Stones – You Can't Always Get What You Want Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

[Intro: London Bach Choir]
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'll find
You get what you need

[Verse 1]

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
[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
Well, you might find
You get what you need
[Verse 2]


And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're going to vent our frustration
If we don't, we're going to 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
Well, you just might find
You get what you need

[Verse 3]

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


Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"
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
Well, you just might find
You get what you need

[Verse 4]


You get what you need, yeah, oh baby
I saw her today at the reception

In her glass was a bleeding manShe was practiced at the art of deception Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands

[Outro]


You can't always get what you want, yeah
You can't always get what you want, ooh yeah
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, ah yeah
Ah yeah
Wooh!
Ah you can't always get what you want (no no)
You can't always get what you want (you can't no no)
You can't always get what you want
...mmm but if you try sometimes, you just might find
You just might find you get what you need
Ah yeah!
Ah yeah! Yeah
