ceiling fixture with on-off wall switch


I have a ceiling fixture with an on-off wall switch. I would like to add an outlet but cannot figure out how to branch into the wall switch circuit. The room is finished and it would be difficult to lead a new line from the ceiling fixture and the main power line. The outlet can be controlled by the wall switch, it doesn't matter. Any suggestions?

First you have to tell us what are the wires in the switch location, then we can tell you if it can be done
