Some come for the music and some for romance
You gotta be with the boy that brought you to the dance
Then across the room there comes a casual glance
And you be making some dime even half the chance

Now some like to look and some like to touch
All the things that they can't have way too much
Some like to get real close to the flame
Once you knew the heat, you know they're never the same

And why do we want
What we know we can't have
And why don't we want
What's in the palm of our hands
Why we always looking
At what's just out of our grasp
And why do we want
What we know we can't have

Well, Susie was out driving her new corvette
She hadn't made that second payment yet
She rear ended a semi but not by choice
She was a rubbernecking a new Rolls Royce

Now why do we want
What we know we can't have
And why don't we want
What's in the palm of our hands
Why we always looking
At what's just out of our grasp
And why do we want
What we know we can't have

Yeah, why do we want
What we know we can't have
And why don't we want
What's in the palm of our hands
Why we always looking
At what's just out of our grasp
And why do we want
What we know we can't have
Tell me 'hat
