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

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction

When I'm cruisin' in my car
And the man comes on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more
About some useless information

Supposed to fire my imagination
And I can 't get no satisfaction
Oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, baby, tell me what I say

Oh, well, when I'm watching my TV
And this man comes on and tells me
What drink would be good for me
But he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke

The same cigars as me
And I can't get no satisfaction
No, no, no, hey, hey, hey, hey
Tell me what I say

When I'm ridin' 'round the world
And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that
And I'm tryin' to meet some girl
Who tells me, baby, baby, come back, maybe next week

Can't you see I'm on a losing streak
I can't get no satisfaction
Oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
Baby, tell me what I say

Come here, baby
What do ya mean
You don't know what will satisfy me
Yes, you do

I've been all around the world
Looking for some girl
And I can't get no satisfaction
And I've got to have some satisfaction
