Stuff that I want
Mick says ďYou canít always get what you wantĒ,
And of course I know that itís true.
But sometimes I do find I get what I need Ė
What I need is to laugh with you.
I donít have a track and a really fast car
To drive like a maniac
I donít have a pool (complete with pool boy),
And I donít have a hot tub out back.
I donít have a transporter, tardis or jet
To visit my friends far away.
I canít do magic or cool ninja tricks
And I donít always know what to say.
The Stones say ďYou canít always get what you wantĒ,
Itís hard to accept that itís true.
But I treasure the moments I get what I need Ė
What I need is to talk with you.
I donít have a cottage thatís perched on a cliff
With music of waves on the rocks.
I donít have the body for fabulous clothes
And I donít even have stripey socks.
I donít have the power to make people kind
And I canít eat nachos each day.
There arenít enough hours to live all my dreams
And I canít make summertime stay.
You tell me ďYou canít always get what you wantĒ,
And it hurts; but I know that itís true.
But Iíll always keep trying to get what I need Ė
What I need is to share with you.
