There she goes
Little black dress on
Standing with the other girls
Wearing velvet and pearls looking so fine, so fine.
All the times that she tried to catch my eye
Now I hear that she's crushing on another guy
Why do we always want what we can't have?

I never really wanted, never really wanted that girl
I never really wanted, wanted her in my world
I never really wanted that girl, oh but now I do, yeah.

Never noticed how
A woman's eyes can dance
But from the outside in looks like they're dancin' for him
Leaves me wondering, wondering
Why is it now I see her in a different light
If I could turn back time I would tonight
Why do we always want what we can't have

I never really wanted, never really wanted that girl
I never really wanted, wanted her in my world
I never really wanted that girl, oh but now I do, oh yeah.

You better get that girl while the gettin's good
There's list of fools who wish they could
Why do we always want what we can't have?

Oh, I never really wanted, never really wanted that girl
I never really wanted, wanted her in my world
I never really wanted that girl, oh but now I do, oh yeah.

I never really wanted, never really wanted that girl
I never really wanted, wanted her in my world
I never really wanted that girl, oh but now I do...
