​Can't Always Get What You Want

This song is by Hanson.

I saw her today at the reception
Glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would make 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 get what you need.
You get what you need

Well I went down to the demonstration
Just to get my fair share of abuse
Singing 'were gonna vent our frustration
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 just might find
You'll get what you need.
You'll get what you need

Well I went to the Chelsea drugstore
Just to get your prescription filled
I was in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, man did he look ill
We decided that we should get a cola
My favorite flavor cherry red
I sang my song to Mr.Jimmy
And he said one word to me and that was 'dead'
And 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.

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practice in the arts of deception
You can tell it by the blood stains on her 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 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 might find
You'll get what you need.
You'll get what you need.
