You don't always win when you bet,

You don't always stink when you sweat,

You don't always sin when you swing with the bin men,

You don't always get what you get.

 

You don't always rent when you let,

You don't always freak when you fret,

You don't always grin when you think of that thing then,

You don't always get what you get.
