What I Need

What I Need

© 2008 Bryce Black

 

There’s a voice in the back of my head that I hear
Every moment that I am awake
It’s whispering softly but oh so clear
That I’ve got the right to all I can take

[Chorus:
What I need (x 4)
It’s a constant refrain running round in my brain
What I need (x 3)]

I think what I need is a roll in the hay
with the next lovely lady I see
but I ain’t got a clue, no my voice doesn’t say
why she should want
to roll with me

What I need is to win the megabucks pot
At the lottery, sweepstakes or bingo
Would wealth make me happy
Well, probably not
But at least then my pockets would jingle

[Chorus]

I need chocolate
not an awful lot
Just a pound or two a day
And a glass of wine would be mighty fine
Just to wash the blood sugar blues away

[Chorus]

What I need is a friend who’ll be true to the end
and who’ll be there each time that I call
but who won’t hassle me
I need some privacy
I mean, after all!

They say that you can’t always get what you want
but if you try you might get what you need
but I can’t get no satisfaction
while whispered desires continue to breed
What I need, what I need
ah, don’t give me no sermons ’bout greed
but I do get annoyed
when I can’t fill the void
with what I need (x 3)
