The Lyrics

A salute to those that brave long lines to exchange presents they didn't want-for various reasons.
Choir:
Saw the store clerk today at the exchange line.
A bottle of Prozac in her hand
She greeted the crowd with a bad disposition
As she told everyone about her plans:
"You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want"
But after Christmas time, you might find
What nobody needs.

Minister:
Saw the store clerk today at the exchange line.
A bottle of Prozac in her hand
She greeted the crowd with a bad disposition
As she told everyone about her plans:
"You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want"
But after Christmas time, you might find
What nobody needs."

There were loud teens with bad complexions
To give me some of their abuse
And ask the older clerks for some directions
I said, "This sweater could only fit a moose."
They said, "You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want"
But after Christmas time, you might find
What nobody needs.

I went down to the Walgreen's drugstore
The only store that opened Christmas Day.
I tried to buy a Kodak but they sold out.
I looked for some chips from Frito-Lay.
I needed some 7-Up for fruit punch
My favorite flavor, Island Red
And I went to the line to make my purchase
And the cashier said three words, they were, "Where's the bread?'
And she said to me, "You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want."
But after Christmas time, you might find
What nobody needs.
What nobody needs--yeah, oh baby.

(Piano solo, followed by choir singing "Aaaaah")

Well I saw Santa today at the exchange line.
He looked like a dying man
Didn't get what I asked, so I called him 'bastard'.
He choked me with his giant hands
And yelled, ""You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want."
But after Christmas time, you might find
What nobody needs.
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But after Christmas time, you might find
What nobody needs.

(Choir sings "Aaaah", then fade out.)
