Warren Brothers What We Can't Have
It?s a small crowd here again tonight
I?m playing these old songs I write
Nobody?s listening
But a rich guy in the corner booth

And I think I?d like to be just like him
To get off work before two a.m.
Order what I like and dress real smooth

And then the rich guy he comes up to me
Picks up the tip jar and drops a twenty
And says, ?That last song it really hit home?

He said, ?If I could have just one thing
I would play guitar and sing
And then I?d never really feel alone?

And I thought to myself
We all want what we can?t have
It?s enough to drive you mad
Make you happy, make you sad
Ain?t it crazy, we all want what we can?t have

Businessman sits at the bar
Lights up the end of a cigar
And says, ?Bartender, pour me one more Crown?

He says, ?I should be getting home tonight
I?ve got two kids and a wife
But you know me, I?d like to stick around?

And Bartender says
?If I were you, I?d get out of here
I?m tired of selling wine and beer
I?d sure love something nine to five"

"No wife no kids no place to be
You sure you want to be like me
It feels like I have been here all my life?

We all want what we can?t have
It?s enough to drive you mad
Make you happy, make you sad
Ain?t it crazy, we all want what we can?t have

Thank God for this old guitar
I wrote a song for a country star
Made enough money
To leave this little stage

But I come back here
Every now and then
I love this new guy sitting in
He?s probably half my age

We all want what we can?t have
It?s enough to drive you mad
Make you happy, make you sad
Ain?t it crazy, we all want what we can?t have

It?s enough to drive you mad
Make you happy, make you sad
Ain?t it crazy, we all want what we can?t have

Baby ain?t it crazy, we all want what we can?t have
Baby ain?t it crazy, baby ain?t it crazy
Ooh, na, na, na, na, na
We all want what we can?t have
We all want what we can?t have
