"After You Get What You Want, You Don't Want It" as written by and Irving Berlin....
After you get what you want, you don't want it.
If I gave you the moon you'd grow tired of it soon
You're like a baby. You want what you want when you want it.
But after you are presented with what you want you're discontented.
You're always wishing and wanting for something
When you get what you want you don't want what you get
And though I sit upon your knee you'll grow tired of me
'Cuz after you get what you want you don't want what you wanted at all.

Changeable, you got a changeable nature
always, always changing your mind
there's a longing in your eye hard to satisfy
and here's the reason why...

'Cuz after you get what you want you don't want it
if I gave you the moon you'd grow tired of it soon
You're like a baby, you want what you want when you want it
but after you are presented with what you want you're discontented
You're always wishing and wanting for something
When you get what you want you don't want what you get
and though I sit upon your knee you'll grow tired of me
'Cuz after you get what you want you don't want what you wanted at all

Baby I don't mean to make you blue but you need a talking to
'Cuz after you get what you want you don't want what you wanted at all.
I know you.
