lyrics

Just What I Always Wanted
By John Grooters and Dwight Beal

Gotta new shirt, can’t wear it, it’s too long, cuz I’m too short
Gotta new tie, don’t like it, kind of makes me look like a dork
Gotta squirt gun, I love it, real fun it’s already broke
Gotta skateboard, can’t ride it, but I have to smile and say that it’s…

Chorus
Just what I always wanted (just what I always wanted)

Gotta girlfriend, I couldn’t keep her, she said that I wasn’t man enough
Gotta real cool leather jacket, but kind of hard to make me look tough
Gotta Barney, I want to shoot him, big purple guy with a really dumb song
Got an attitude this Christmas, it’s really great stuff, don’t get me wrong it’s

Chorus

I got pajamas, they’re cozy, but right away they gotta rip in the butt
I got golf clubs, but I’m lazy, I can’t chip, and I can’t putt
Gotta new horse, I’ll ride him, one problem, I have no barn
Got underwear, I need em, too bad my grandmother knit them out of yarn, but they’re

Chorus

What did I get that ain’t gonna rot? What did I get that I still got?
Big roller coaster spin me around; brings me up, and then lets me down
Everything I got will eventually bust; nothing down here deserves my trust
I got big wants, I got big needs, somebody got to set me free
Big roller coaster spin me around; brings me up and then lets me down
I need peace, I need love, I need help from God above
Come Lord Jesus give me rest, you’re my Rock, you’re the best
Teach me Lord, to be content, ‘cause the gift of Life that’s heaven sent is…

Chorus
Just what I always wanted (Just what I always wanted, Lord you are…)
Just what I always wanted (what I want, what I need, you’re what I want, you’re what I need, you’re…)
Just what I always wanted
