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

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 her 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 might 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...

 

〈You Can't Always Get What You Want〉是出自英國搖滾團體The Rolling Stones的專輯《Let It Bleed》的一首歌,由Mick Jagger和Keith Richards共同創作。這首歌是1968年11月16、17日在倫敦所錄製的。倫敦巴哈合唱團有力的開場,讓整首歌非常的喧鬧。當時的製作人Jimmy Miller擔任鼓手。雖然Jagger和Jimi Hendrix 在發行那首歌時是好朋友,不過在歌詞裡"I sang my song to Mr. Jimmy"的Jimmy是指他們的製作人兼鼓手的Jimmy Miller,在其他的歌詞裡"and he said one word to me and that was dead"中有提到dead這個字,是當時他們對很喜歡的事都用dead來表示。關於這首歌,Jagger在2003年表示:「這首歌是他在床上彈著吉他所寫的,它在錄音的時候非常困難,在他的腦中還有合唱團的出現,福音合唱團,不過在這點上從來沒有實行過,Jack Nitzsche還是別人就說,那不然就倫敦巴哈合唱團好了,那一定很好笑吧。」在回顧這首歌,Richie Unterberger 提及:「如果你買John Lennon的觀察,他說滾石合唱團很會拷貝披頭四的創意,這首歌就是滾石合唱團的〈Hey Jude〉。」Jagger在1969年說:「我喜歡披頭四的〈Hey Jude〉這首歌合唱團的部分,不會蓋過歌曲的全部,像是很特別的部分,也許在下一張專輯我會這樣做。」這首歌的三段歌詞緊緊扣住1960年代的三大主題〞愛、政治及毒品〝。每一段歌詞都表現最初的樂觀但最後幻滅,在這接下來合唱的實用主義部分。Unterberger對這首歌下了結論:「很多歌曲的歌詞反映了1960年過長的派對,當搖擺倫敦快速發生。那是本質上的解釋,但還是要指出有很多令人開心的及鼓舞的旋律及表演。特別是在這首歌的主要所要闡述的,當我們不能總是拿到我們想要的,不過我們將獲得我們所需要的。」
