You Can't Always Get What You Want Lyrics - The Rolling Stones

Review The Song (5)



(M. Jagger/K. 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 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 well you might find
You get what you need

I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
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
sponsored links
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
You get what you need

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

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

You get what you need--yeah, oh baby

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 blood-stained 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 well you just might find
You just might find
You 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 just might find
You just might find
You get what you need

Still applies today | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/31/13

I'm listening to this song, I just had to admit to myself that this person I'd been trying to get to go out with me, won't. But as far as her being there as a friend, she's exactly what I needed to stay above ground during a very dark time in my life.

Best Stones song ever | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/7/12

Just saw a video clip of the Stones performing this live in concert as part of "Let's Spend the Night Together" on the BBCA channel. I always enjoy this song no matter how often I hear it. The message is profound and universal. And the captivating piano riff is somehow exactly appropriate. There has never been anything else like "You Can't Always Get What You Want" on the rock scene, ever.

Sixties | Reviewer: Jack | 11/2/08

Definitely a fitting ballad to tell the tale of the end of the 60's era of love, drugs, and politics. The Stones painted the 60's as an over-the-top party that was fading away and dying out and that, although no one wanted the 60's to end, the era needed to die out and change. Beautiful.

Great Song! | Reviewer: Lena | 3/19/08

This song is really so amazing, and so true... you don't always get what you want, but we almost always get what we need. The tune is awesome, too, both inspirational and almost sad at the same time... so great!
