Every Man Has His Wish

Recommended Posts

I could cry, I love this song.

 

 

 

You can whistle for it

 

Baby, you’ll never grow old in my eyes

With your golden grill, true love never dies

You wanna watch me while I watch TV

While you’re t-t-t-t-touchin’ me

 

We’re forever young in paradise

As long as we got the Chevrolet, I will ride

 

We’re gonna party like it’s 1949

We’re in that Chevrolet from July to July

Gonna see it all before he says goodbye

Every man deserves to see the sunrise

 

Every man gets his wish

Every man gets his wish

You told me this

Where is mine?

 

You said I’d never make it out of here alive

At the rate I was going, I’d be lucky to die

I was born so bad, not naturally right

The brightest star on Hollywood and Vine

 

We’re gonna party like we’re running out of time

Getting drunk and driving fast on cherry wine

Never do belong to anyone I find

Leaving everything I ever knew behind

 

Every man gets his wish

Every man gets his wish

You told me this

Where is mine?

 

Every man gets his wish

Every man gets his wish

Promised me this

Were you lying?

 

I learned how to make love from the movies

He found me waitressing at Ruby Tuesday’s

He said, “I wanna buy you up, plus a white milkshake.”

I said, “I’ll serve you up a special side of heartbreak.”

Special side of heartbreak.

 

I was working down in the corner café

You would drive by in the Chevrolet

Whistle at me as my hips go sway

“Lana Del Rey, how you get that way?”

How you get that way?

 

I said, he loves my heart-shaped sunglasses

He loves the heart shape my ass is

Cristal, crystal champagne glasses

 

Every man gets his wish

Every man gets his wish

You told me this

Where is mine?

 

Every man gets his wish

Every man gets his wish

Promised me this

Were you lying?

You can whistle first.

 

You can whistle for it

 

He said, “I wanna buy you a (???) milkshake.”

 

I wanna buy you a classic white milkshake

 

and I think the the other 'Where is mine' is 'Well, you lied'

 

Love this song so much although the combination of 1949+every man gets his wish+ something else? is odd

Here's my theory:

 

Okay. Back in 2009, at the same time they recorded "Heavy Hitter," Lana worked on a very rough demo of a song tentatively called "Hawaiian Tropic." However, they never finished it, and she took some ideas and lyrical themes from that unfinished track and instead used them in conjunction with her old demo "1949," and came out with THIS MASTERPIECE. It's like the happy sister song to the slow version of "Hundred Dollar Bill," and hey! Look at the RUBY TUESDAY reference. Hmmmmmm?

any info about it? year? alias? etc etc

 

It's 2009, and registered--I just forget the authors. Probably a "Lizzy" era song, even though the song obviously mentions LANA DEL REY. :P

Hearing nothing about a Hawaiian Tropic in this. Why do you assume that?

Yes.

 

and I think the the other 'Where is mine' is 'Well, you lied'

I wasn't sure if it's "Well, you lied" or "Were you lying?" Also:

 

We’re in that Chevrolet from July to July

 

I was born so bad I'd naturally [ride/write?]

 

You would drop by in a Chevrolet

 

And what the fuck kind of milkshake is that? Phonetically, it sounds like Plass-o-bite.

I hear "lying" more than "lied", good catch.

 

You helped me figure out that it's:

I was born so bad, not naturally right

High-five, evil

 

Generally I trust your judgment, but I implore you to listen to it with your speakers as loud as they'll go. I'm pretty confident it's "drive".

 

I definitely hear a "P" in the milkshake bit...We need Neal/Dale in here!

Ah, yes, you're right. On both counts.

so do you guys think the 'official' title (haha :( ) would be "Every Man Has His Wish" (like in our forum lyrics section here,) or "Every Man Gets His Wish"?

 

Although it says "gets" in the song, it's registered as "has".

Oh! I forgot to mention a big part of my theory. :P

CG wrote of them as the same song when she did her discography, and also wrote they were produced by Blockhead....and this one isn't, so it stands to reason HT is a legitimate, yet unfinished, title.

Neal needs to listen to this song, or more importantly needs to get a hand on the song, which is where..?

 

 

 

For the first and last time, u guys stawp typing Neal/Dale.. It's Neal now and mind the spelling, it's not Neil, Niall or even Neall. I just want a name that sounds beautiful coming off the tip of the tongue and which reminds me to the times I was in Glasgow of highlands, tartans, horses and bagpipes. I'm trying to erase the remnant of my FBI past, buy the rights of my song and get my filthy rich daddy a new contract at Interscope, aight. Mess with me, and my manager Men Bawson gonna hunt u down.

 

 

 


..but believe me when I say that the surveillance we live under is the highest privilege compared to how we treat the rest of the world.
