I can't get no satisfaction
Cause I tried and I tried
And I tried and I tried

I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm driving in my car
And a 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
No, no, no
Hey, hey, hey
That's what I say

When I'm watching my TV
And a man comes on that 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 satisfaction
I can't get no girly action...

When I'm riding around the world
And I'm 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"

No satisfaction...
