You Can't Always Get What You Want
Words & Music:
Mick Jagger & Keith Richards
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. [repeat 3x]
Dm F C F
But if you try sometimes, well you 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
If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse!"
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:
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.
