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

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"

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 (try sometimes)
You might find You get what you need
(Oh, 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
(Cherry red, my cherry red, my..)
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy (Mr. Jimmy)
And he said one word to me(what he said),
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
But if you try sometimes (if you try sometimes)
You might find
You get what you need
Oh yes!
You get what you need
(You get what you need)

You can't always get what you want (x12)
