You Can't Always Get What You Want

Lyrics

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

Not bad advice for living, you may not always get what you want, but sometimes when you try, you get what you need....... oh, and still a great rock anthem too.
Sorry, great music and truth but the Stones are BRITISH!
This ought to be the American national anthem :o).

Some of the BEST ROCK
piratemurph
good song, great advise
Love the horn in the intro
Strangely satisfying! For those who care, it's NOT an American band. We have a pharmacy in neighboring Chelsea called the Chelsea Drug Store. I always laugh when I see it.

Such an un-american song ......

Uumm yeah the lyrics are obviously wrong
They tore this song up live back in the day. When are they going back out on tour? Last time I saw them was in the 90's I believe. They're probably like 80 years old by now, but I'd see them again... Classic!

You get what you need, just like this tune.
Killer killer tune. One of Rock's best.
Great f*&kn" tune.

Keith was a choir boy as a kid then they kicked him out when his voice changed. The rest is history...
This song always makes me think about the funeral scene in "Big Chill."
Classic Stones .... Spearing lyrics, funky rythyms ... showcases the genius of Jagger and Richards ..

I sing this song all the time to my 2.5 yr old daughter. :-)
This is a song that some of the younger children of today need to listen to.
they messed up on the lyrics a bit but brilliant song all the same
From the wife - I love the chorus in this song! I so believe it. The music is great too.
Wow I was just singing this song an hour ago this is a classic.
<3
CLASSIC SEEN THEM 4 TIMES AND IM ONLY 31 YEARS OLD GOOD TIMES ALWAYZ PUT ON A GOOD SHOW.... KEEP ON ROCKN STONES
A Stones classic. Always enjoyed their concerts.
I have to comment on one of my all time favorites and that after many, many successful trips around the Sun, this song is like my life. "You can't always get what you want, but you sometimes get what you need" Rock old guys from another old rocker. Peace Out!

ssoooo true....its about journey not the destination. . . t h a n k s stones for the reminder

You can't always get Al Kooper on the organ, but they seem to have gotten what they needed. ;)

Love this song but the lyrics listed have so many mistakes it's a joke.
Too true, too true, Mick and Keith.
good song to sing
a true anthem
rciscel
just might find what you need!
How come they always screw up the lyrics.
My favorite song ever.
I sing the refain of this song to my son and he hates it when I do.
Sorry but I agree with belchicola. I don't like the high pitched part. It doesn't sound good at all.
