LyricsEdit

Every now and then we all want something
Even if there's no way of gettin' it
If I stomach that that's the way it must be
Be the way around it, could I get myself around it

Get me what I want
Everything that I got
Get me what I want
'Cause I'm a big shot

Don't want to always have to be so nice
Don't want to hear you say well that's just life
I dry out when I open my mouth
I make my way around it, make my way around it

Get me what I want
Everything that I got
Get me what I want
'Cause I'm a big shot

So give me what I want
I always get what I want
Don't want to see me red
If I don't get what I want
That's not what you want

I'm not about to take no for an answer
No
If I tell you I can't I'm still gonna go
I did it all by myself
I found my way around it

Get me what I want
Everything that I got
Get me what I want
'Cause I'm a big shot
So give me what I want
I always get what I want
Don't want to see me red
If I don't get what I want
That's not what you want

It's not to lovely
It could start to get ugly
It really bugs me

Get me what I want
Everything that I got
Get me what I want
'Cause I'm a big shot
So give me what I want
I always get what I want
Don't want to see me red
If I don't get what I want
That's not what you want
