Lyrics
I want it I want it
I want it I need it
I want it now
I want it I want it
I want it I need it
I want it now

I wanna holiday I wanna get away
I wanna car I wanna be a big star
I want my name written up in lights
like a flame till the midnight burning bright

I want some love some peace of mind
I'm out tonight and these things I'm gonna find
I won't be back till I got them in my bag
'cause I want 'em it's sad but I want 'em real bad

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now

A big fat car to take me far
a very large mansion with room for expansion
not small things just tall things
forgive me if I'm rude or crude it's just my attitude

I want a lover like no other could ever know
I wanna live in a world that's together so
what must I say ey what must I do
listen to myself if my dream's gonna come true

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it

I want it like b___er wants to be with the knife
I want it like a ghost wants to get a life
I want it from my head down to my tiptoe
I want it from my mind to the bottom of my very soul

I want it like a tear from an eye wants to cry
I want it like a bird wing wants to fly
I want it real bad I want it real bad
I want it real bad like something I've never had

I told you that I want it tonight I'm out to get it
I'm on the move just to prove that I ain't just said it
I'm like a thief that's in search of gold
I'm like Satan in search of another soul

I see the things that I want but can never have
I want them now gun me down if you think I'm bad
'cause I ain't falling back I'm in full attack
I've got a scheme for my dream and I know where it's at

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now yea

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now yea

I want it like b___er wants to be with the knife
I want it like a ghost wants to get a life
I want it from my head down to my tiptoe
I want it from my mind to the bottom of my very soul

I want it like a tear from an eye wants to cry
I want it like a bird wing wants to fly
I want it real bad I want it real bad
I want it real bad like something I've never had

I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now yea

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now yea

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now yea

Told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
told you that I want it but now I'm gonna get it
I want it now yea

I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now

I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now

I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now

I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
I want it I need it I want it now
