Don't Always Want (The Kelly Family)

Nowadays people want more, more and so do I My brother told me once You always wnat what you don't have But take a look at all the things you do have So the reason why I wrote this song Was to express what I think is wrong I'd like to be just a little bit taller I'd like to be just a little bit prettier I'd like to be just a little bit stronger But hey whatever Don't always want what you don't have But be grateful for what you have Don't always want what you don't have But be grateful for what you have Well you can call me the consumator 'Cause I never stop Feeding myself with all these obstacles untill I drop I want a house, a fat cat, my own sauna and a pool Have a yacht, my own piano and finally be cool I'm like that kid screaming to his mama "I want that toy" 'Cause my filled room at home no longer gives me that joy And I don't recommend myself as someone to employ 'Cause I want it all I want the world just to leave me alone Wanna move to New York and learn the saxophone I wanna jam with Miles Davis and John Coltran I've got so many wishes I think I'm going insane But what the hell am I supposed to do 'Cause I'm trying real hard to undo all the emptiness inside me Which is why I want so much Don't always want what you don't have But be grateful for what you have Don't always want what you don't have But be grateful for what you have Well you can call me the consumator 'Cause I never stop
