PostHeaderIcon Jenn: Song Lyric Saturday

The other ballerina asked me what my all-time favorite song is. Without missing a beat I replied You Can't Always Get What You Want by the Rolling Stones.  Released in 1969 on the Let It Bleed album, I have been listening to this song virtually all of my life.  When it comes on the radio I can't help but crank it up.  Give it a listen today - it puts life in perspective...after all you can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes you just might get what you  need...


I saw her today at a reception

A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man


No, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
And if you try sometime you find
You get what you need




Oh yeah, hey hey hey, oh...


And 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"
Sing it to me now...


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


Oh baby, yeah, yeah!

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, no!
You can't always get what you want (tell ya baby)
You can't always get what you want (no)
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need
Oh yes! Woo!


You get what you need--yeah, oh baby!


Oh yeah!

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 you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need

You can't always get what you want (no, no baby)
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, ah yes
