Its a small crowd here again tonight
Im playing these old songs I write
Nobodys listening
But a rich guy in the corner booth

And I think Id like to be just like him
To get off work before two a.m.
Order what I like and dress real smooth

And then the rich guy he comes up to me
Picks up the tip jar and drops a twenty
And says, That last song it really hit home

He said, If I could have just one thing
I would play guitar and sing
And then Id never really feel alone

And I thought to myself
We all want what we cant have
Its enough to drive you mad
Make you happy, make you sad
Aint it crazy, we all want what we cant have

Businessman sits at the bar
Lights up the end of a cigar
And says, Bartender, pour me one more Crown

He says, I should be getting home tonight
Ive got two kids and a wife
But you know me, Id like to stick around

And Bartender says
If I were you, Id get out of here
Im tired of selling wine and beer
Id sure love something nine to five"

"No wife no kids no place to be
You sure you want to be like me
It feels like I have been here all my life

We all want what we cant have
Its enough to drive you mad
Make you happy, make you sad
Aint it crazy, we all want what we cant have

Thank God for this old guitar
I wrote a song for a country star
Made enough money
To leave this little stage

But I come back here
Every now and then
I love this new guy sitting in
Hes probably half my age

We all want what we cant have
Its enough to drive you mad
Make you happy, make you sad
Aint it crazy, we all want what we cant have

Its enough to drive you mad
Make you happy, make you sad
Aint it crazy, we all want what we cant have

Baby aint it crazy, we all want what we cant have
Baby aint it crazy, baby aint it crazy
Ooh, na, na, na, na, na
We all want what we cant have
We all want what we cant have
