When I was in college, we were told that we could 'have it all' - a successful career, a family, all the trappings of an educated but hard working life. Especially the women, raised in a post-feminist society where our mothers worked hard to break the previous molds for women in the workplace, a struggle that is far from over. 15 years later, they sent a survey asking what was the most surprising development over the years since graduating, and to a one, the idea in this song was what people said.

with quotes from the Rolling Stones, Jimmy Cliff and Paul McCartney

You can have it all, but not at the same time
You can live a life of rock and roll but you better save your dimes
Cause we’re all gonna grow old, you can’t see it at the time
Years go by, and one day you find
You can have it all, but not all at the same time

You can’t always get what you want
You can get it if you really want it
If you want it here it is come and get it,
But you better hurry cause its going, fast.
