My mom used to sing this song to me when I was a was little girl. I used to think to my self " just watch me!" umpteen years later.. I can finally say I understand what that crazy lady ment.this song always stops me dead in my tracks when ever I hear it. I appreciate life and my immediate surroundings for what it's worth.
Sometimes I'll change up the lyrics and say you can't always get what you want but when you try sometimes you just might find a smoke lots of weed. All the fun intended. so if

so mick and keith were sitting around one day, and mick says to keith, you know, you can't always get what you want, and keith says to mick, but just sometimes you get what you need. and mick says to keith, maybe we should write a song about that, and keith says to mick, that's sounds like a good idea. and it was; a good idea, I mean. so, they wrote a song about it, and called it...well, you know the rest..
