YOU NEVER GET WHAT YOU WANT
Patty Griffin


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

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


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

Ever since I've know you you've walked that walk

You've broken all the records

Now you've broken all the clocks

And everytime it breaks my heart to hear you talk 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?


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

They're killing us baby

We gotta walk away, walk away


You never get what you want

You 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?

You never get what you want

You never get what you want

Your whole damn life

You never get what you want

Not your whole damn life

You never get what you want

And I don't think it's my fault

You never get what you want

Do you baby
