Everybody Want What They Don't Got is an unreleased song recorded on 13 July 1986 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (on the same day as The Cross).

The sessions during July largely focused on the planned Dream Factory album, but it is unknown if this song was considered for this or any other project.

The song's lyrics appeared in the official 1994 book Neo Manifesto: Audentes Fortuna Juvat, along with various other unreleased song lyrics, but it is unknown if a companion audio release was ever planned.

During Prince: A Celebration in June 2000, computer screens at Paisley Park Studios offered names of a selection of tracks which users could vote on for inclusion on Crystal Ball Volume II, and while Everybody Want What They Don't Got was chosen by fans, the project was ultimately abandoned.
