WYSIWYG = what you see is what you get.

The song = The Rolling Stones, "You Can't Always Get What You Want"


They say you can't always get what you want,
but that sometimes you get what you need.

I'm not sure the song is true, but I've come to believe
that a lot of the time, you get what you see.

good one Asa, unless for the blind

Agreed. It's probably because you can see nothing else.

This is an oddly complex notion. Do you get what you want, see, or deserve? Do you get left-overs? Do you get a second chance? I suppose the key word is "sometimes."

When I was small and would make mistakes as grown ups
see things, I would sometimes be scolded with.
"See what you get?"
I guess growing up is like that.
