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 a footloose man

And I said, you can't always get what you want, honey
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
Well, you might just find, you'll get what you need

I went to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with your friend Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill

We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor is cherry red
I sung my song to my friend Mr. Jimmy
And he said one word to me and that was "dead

And I said, that you can't always get what you want, honey
And you cannot always get the man that you want
And you cannot always get the man that you want
But if you try sometimes
I just might find, I just might find you get what you need

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
I could tell by her bloodstained hands

And I said, 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
Just might find, you just might find you get what you need, ah yeah

And you can't always get what you want, honey
And you can't always satisfy your need
And you can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
I just might find, I just might find you get what you need
