Written by John Mellencamp

I love the things that scare most folks to death
But I ain't ever satisfied
I'll stay till the end or till I'm gasping my last breath
But I ain't ever satisfied
No, I am never satisfied

I can pretty much come and go as I like
But I ain't ever satisfied
Hey, with no bottom line it's hard to know wrong from right
But I ain't ever satisfied
I'll try anything once but then do it to death
But I ain't ever satisfied
I expect the worst but I hope for the best
Oh, I ain't ever satisfied
No, I ain't ever satisfied
No, no, no, no, I am never satisfied

Can't get enough, no, of nothing

I've got seven of everything and more in the till
But I ain't ever satisfied
You think this is dangerous stuff
It ain't even a thrill
I ain't ever satisfied
Oh, I am never
No, I am never
I don't know why I ain't ever satisfied
