Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want

about

So maybe on the surface this song (especially its title) could seem materialistic, "Please let me get what I want" could be seen to mean "please let me get all the gifts and stuff that I desire." I feel like you can also see it in another light, maybe "What I want" is what John Lennon wants in his song "Happy Christmas", namely an end to war. Maybe this is an infinitely less cheesy version of Wham's "Last Christmas", a lament for the heartbreak of Christmases past and the hope for a brighter future.

Either way, it's an awesome song with multiple possible meanings and I hope you enjoy it.

lyrics

Good times for a change
See the life I've had could make a good man turn bad

So please, please, please let me, let me, let me
Get what I want this time

Haven't had a dream in a long time
See the luck I've had could make a good man bad

So for once in my life let me get what I want
Lord knows it would be the first time
Lord knows it would be the first time

So please, please, please let me, let me, let me
Get what I want Lord knows it would be the first time
Lord knows it would be the first time
Lord knows it would be the first time
