You Can't Always Get What You Want   Rolling Stones

I [C]saw her today at the re[F]ception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was a footloose man

You [C]can't always get what you [F]want.   (X 3)
But if you [D]try sometimes,  Yo[F]u might find
You get what you [C]need...   ahhhh[F]hhh, [C]yeah....[F].

I went down to the demonstration,
To get my fair share of abuse.
Singing "we're gonna vent our frustration,
And if we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse."

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.
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy,
And he said one word to me, and that was "dead,"
I said to him:

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