You can't always get it when you really want it

C5
Just because there's space in your life it's a waste
                                                   ( Bb F)
To spend your time why don't you wait for the call

                Ebadd9   Bbmaj7/Eb  Ebadd9(ii)    Ebadd9 (Bbmaj7/Eb)
(Just gotta get used to it)  We all get it in the end

(Just gotta get used to it) We go down and we come up again
(Just gotta get used to it) You irritate me my friend
 Ebadd9     Bbmaj7/Eb  Ebadd9                      F       
(This is no social     crisis)  This is you having fun

Getting burned by the sun
Ebadd9Bb F  Ebadd9 Bb
(This is true)

This is no social crisis
             G              C5         C5
Just another tricky day for you

You can't always get higher just because you aspire
You could expire even knowing.
Don't push the hands just hang on to the band
And you can dance while your knowledge is growing

(It could happen anytime) You can't expect to never cry
(Patience is priceless) Not when you try to fly so high
(Just stay on that line) Rock and roll will never die
(This is no social crisis) This is you having fun

[repeat chorus]


[bridge]
Bb/C
Another tricky day
Bbm/C
Another gently nagging pain
Csus4
What the papers say
              C                       C7
Just seems to bring down heavier rain
Abmaj7 
The world seems in a spiral
Csus2
Life seems such a worthless title
Gsus4                     G
But break out and start a fire you all
     Gsus4 G  Gsus4 G  Gsus4 G
It's all here on   the vinyl

[repeat chorus]
(No crisis)
Just you having fun
(There's no crisis) 
Getting burned by the sun
(You got no crisis, this is true)
This is no social crisis
Just another tricky day for you

[Repeat first verse]

(Just gotta get used to it) Gotta get used to waiting
(Just gotta get used to it) You know how the ice is
(Just gotta get used to it) It's thin where you're skating
(This is no social crisis)  This is you having fun

[repeat chorus]
(No crisis)
Getting burned by the sun
(This is true)
This is no social crisis
Just another tricky day for you, fella
