You first found me in my holding pen
Stopped to take a look and stuck your finger in
I bit one off and you came back again and again, baby

Then the nice people let me out one day
And you told me how to act and what to say
But you never get what you wanted that way

'Cause baby, oh no, you never get what you want
You never get what you want
And I don't think it's my fault
You never get what you want, do you, baby?

Everything's always such a mystery
Including your sad little history
Do you still think someone should take responsibility and pay?
Oh, no no

Ever since I've known you've walked that walk
And you've broken all the records
Now you've broken all the clocks, all the clocks
And everytime it breaks my heart to hear you talkin' this way, this way

You never get what you want
You never get what you want
And I don't think it's my fault
You never get what you want, do you, baby, baby, baby, baby?

Everybody's been sad, everybody's been tragic
Whole lot of hard times, whole little bit of magic
These bitter bitter fruits and these endless hallways
Ah, they're killing us, baby
We gotta walk away, walk away, walk away, walk, oh

You never get what you want
You never never get what you want
You spend your whole time thinkin 'bout why I'm so deranged
Well honey, why don't you think about that for a change?

Oh no, you never get what you want
Oh, you never get what you want
Your whole damn life, you never get what you want
Not your whole damn life, never get what you want

And I don't think it's my fault
You never get what you want, do you, baby?
Do you, baby?
Do you, baby?
Do you, baby?
