212 - (You Can't Always Get) What You Want

Sun in June, rain in July,
God only knows the reason why,
that girl's here in June, away in July,
I don't get her love though I try.

You can't always get what you want,
you try to reach a target but you don't,
go along your way, if at the back or front,
you can't always get what you want.

I went out in the evening, was feelin' fine,
I had a date with that girl this time,
was sittin' around all alone,
'couldn't even reach her on the cellphone.

I had a look at that car some days ago,
I stood starin' at it 15 minutes or so,
then I even took it for a trial run,
a look at the price stopped my fun.
