"You Get What You Deserve" as written by and Alex Chilton....
Try to understand what I'm going through
And don't blame me for what folks will do
For some of us it's not a good time
But you're going to get used to and you'd better resign yourself

You get what you deserve
You ought to find out what it's worth
And you've gotta have a lotta nerve

You just do what pleases you
And go on and try out every move
You're going to get place in the scene
All god's orphans get face in the dream, now

You get what you deserve
You ought to find out what it's worth
And you've gotta have a lotta nerve

Too bad, such a drag, ow
So much pain down the drain
And a lot of us ain't got many friends

Try to understand what I'm going through
And don't blame for what folks will do
For some of us it's not a good time
But you're going to get used to and you'd better resign yourself

You get what you deserve
You ought to find out what it's worth
And you've gotta have a lotta nerve

You get what you deserve

    Try to understand what I'm going through
    Don't blame me for what folks will do
    For some of us, it's not a good time
    But you're going to get used to it, you'd better resign yourself

    You get what you deserve
    You ought to find out what it is worth
    & you've gotta have a lotta nerve

    You just do what pleases you
    & go on & sign out every move
    You're gonna get place in the scene
    All God's orphans get face in the dream

    Now, you get what you deserve
    You ought to find out what it is worth
    & you've gotta have a lotta nerve

    Too bad
    Such a drag
    So much pain
    Down the drain
    A lot of us ain't got many friends

    Try to understand what I'm going through
    But don't blame me for what folks will do
    For some of us, it's not a good time
    But you're going to get used to it, you'd better resign yourself

    You get what you deserve
    You ought to find out what it is worth
    & you've gotta have a lotta nerve
    You get what you deserve
