The Lyrics

I saw you today in the kitchen.
You had some change in your hand.
I knew you were gonna make a snack selection.
At you feet was a vending stand.

You can't always get what you want.
You can't always get what you want.
You can't alawys get what you want.
But if you try sometimes, well you might find.
You get the snack you need.

And I went down to the main kitchen.
To get some left over food.
Singing, we're not having any vending frustration.
We're gonna keep the change that we would have used.

You can't always get what you want.
You can't always get the snack you want.
You can't always get the change you need.
But if you have a lot of dimes, well you might find.
A snack at the bottom of the machine.

I went down to the 1st floor snack store.
To get my refund filled.
I was standing in line with Mr. Leo.
And man, he didn't look very thrilled.
We decided that we would try a soda.
What's your favorite flavor? is what he said.
I handed my refund post it not over.
Yeah, and he said good luck with that.
I said to them.

You can't always get what you want.
You can't always get the change you need.
You can't always get the snack you want.
But if you try sometimes, you just might find.
You hate those vending machines.
You never get what you need- yeah, oh baby.

I saw you today in the kitchen.
On the vending glass were refund demands.
The owners were practiced at the art of deception.
Well, they avoided the refund notes as they loaded soda cans.

You can' always get what you want.
You can't always get what you want.
You can't always get what you want.
But if you bring enough coin, you might just find.
You might just find.
The snack you need.

You can't always shake the snack machine.
You can't always get the refund you want.
You can't always shake the snack machine.

But if you take all your break time, you just might find.
You just might find.
The snack you need.

I'll admit, I've had far too many a "lunch" from vending machines!
