Def Leppard - You Can't Always Get What You Want

DEF LEPPARD


You Can't Always Get What You Want Lyrics

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
As 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
Well, you just 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 Mister Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, was cherry red
I sung my song to Mister Jimmy
And he said one word to me, and that was "dead"

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
No no, you can't always get what you want
Oh, you can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
You just might find
You'll get what you need

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
Oh, yes I could

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
Yeah, you just might find
You'll get what you need
Oh sugar, you'll get what you need, yeah yeah yeah
You'll get what you need, yeah yeah yeah
You'll get what you need, yeah yeah yeah

I have sang this song to my daughters from the time they were young. Constantly asking for material things, I told them "You can't always get what u want, but if try sometimes, yeah, you might find, you get what you need." Meaning that there are other things in Life that "YOU NEED" to get by. Be Thankful for a roof over your head, food, God, and life in general every day as it can be taken away in a moment notice unexpectedly. Life is a privilege, not a guarantee.....
