(I CAN'T GET NO) SATISFACTION

Live 20 Jan 1988 version


Mick Jagger:Whoa!

Mick Jagger:Hey!

Mick Jagger:I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
But I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

Mick Jagger:Ah, when I'm driving in my car, and the man comes on the radio
And he's telling me more and more about some useless information
Supposed to mess my imagination

Mick Jagger:I can't get no, hey
Ah, no, no, no
Hey, hey, hey
Mary Wilson:Hey, hey, hey
Mick Jagger:That's what I say

Mick Jagger:I can't get no satisfaction
Bruce Springsteen:I can't get no satisfaction
Mick Jagger:And I try
Jagger and Springsteen:And I try (and I try) and I try (and I try) and I try (and I try)
I can't get no, I can't get no

Mick Jagger:Ah, when I'm a-riding ‘round the world
And I'm a-doing this and I'm a-signing that
I'm trying to make some girl, she say,
"Baby, better come back, maybe next week"
You see, I'm on a losing streak

Mick Jagger:I can't get no
Ah, no, no, no
Whoa!
Hey, hey, hey
Mary Wilson:Hey, hey, hey
Mick Jagger:Ah, hey, hey, hey
Mary Wilson:Ah, hey, hey, hey
Mick Jagger:Hey, hey, hey
Mary Wilson:Ah, hey, hey, hey

Mick Jagger:No, I can't get no
Bruce Springsteen:I can't get no
Mick Jagger:I can't get no
Bruce Springsteen:I can't get no
Mick Jagger:I can't get no
Bruce Springsteen:I can't get no (Satisfaction)
Jagger and Springsteen:Satisfaction (Satisfaction)
No satisfaction (Satisfaction)
Mick Jagger:No satisfaction
Bruce Springsteen:No satisfaction
Mick Jagger:No satisfaction
Bruce Springsteen:No satisfaction
Mick Jagger:No satisfaction
Bruce Springsteen:No satisfaction
Mick Jagger:No satisfaction
Bruce Springsteen:No satisfaction
Mick Jagger:No, I can't no
Bruce Springsteen:I can't get no (Satisfaction)
Mick Jagger:No, I can't get no
Bruce Springsteen:Baby, I can't get no (Satisfaction)
Mick Jagger:No, I can't get no
Bruce Springsteen:I can't get no (Satisfaction)
Mick Jagger:Satisfaction
Let's do it! (Satisfaction)

Mick Jagger:No satisfaction (No satisfaction)
No satisfaction (No satisfaction)
No satisfaction (No satisfaction)
No satisfaction (No satisfaction)
Whoa!

Mick Jagger:Go!
