(I CAN'T GET NO) SATISFACTION

Original The Rolling Stones version


I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm driving in my car, and the man comes on the radio
He's telling me more and more about some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination

I can't get no
Ah, no, no, no
Hey, hey, hey
That's what I say

I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm watching my TV and a man comes on and tells me
How white my shirts can be
But he can't be a man, 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarettes as me

I can't get no
Ah, no, no, no
Ah, hey, hey, hey
That's what I say

I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no good reaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm riding 'round the world
And I'm a-doing this and I'm signing that
And I'm trying to make some girl, who tells me
“Baby, better come back, maybe next week
'Cause, you see, I'm on a losing streak”

I can't get no
Ah, no, no, no
Ah, hey, hey, hey
That's what I say

I can't get no, I can't get no
I can't get no satisfaction, no satisfaction
No satisfaction, no satisfaction
I can't get no...
