You Never Get What You Want Lyrics

You first found me in my holding pen
Stopped to take a look and stuck your finger in
I bit one off and you came back again and again
Then the nice people let me out one day
And you told me how to act and
What to say
But you never get what you wanted that way

You never get what you want
You never get what you want and I don't think it's my fault
You never get what you want, do you baby?

Everything's always such a mystery
Including your sad little history
Do you still think someone should take responsibility and pay
Ever since I've know you you've walked that walk
You've broken all the records
Now you've broken all the clocks
And everytime it breaks my heart to hear you talk this way

You never get what you want
You never get what you want and I don't think it's my fault
You never get what you want, do you baby?

Everybody's been sad, everybody's been tragic
Whole lot of hard times, whole little bit of magic
These bitter bitter fruits and these endless hallways
They're killing us baby
We gotta walk away, walk away

You never get what you want
You never get what you want
You spend your whole time thinkin 'bout why I'm so deranged
Well honey, why don't you think about that for a change?
You never get what you want
You never get what you want
Your whole damn life
You never get what you want
Not your whole damn life
You never get what you want
And I don't think it's my fault
You never get what you want
Do you baby
