"You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)" is a single from Joe Jackson's 1984 album Body and Soul. In addition to the 7” single, it was also released as a 12” single, remixed by John "Jellybean" Benitez.

The track features a slap bass performance from Jackson's longtime bassist Graham Maby. Maby recalled, "For 'You Can't Get What You Want,' on Body and Soul, Joe wanted me to slap. It was certainly not one of my strengths, but I think the track came out fine, and it was fun to play live."

Glide Magazine ranked the song as Jackson's third best song. Mike DeGagne of AllMusic called the song "explosive."
