(LyricFind)

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

When a man come on the radio

He’s telling me more and more

About some useless information

Supposed to fire my imagination

I can’t get no, oh, 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 watchin’ 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, oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey

That’s what I say

I can’t get no satisfaction

I can’t get no girl 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 ridin’ ’round the world

And I’m doin’ this and I’m signin’ that

And I’m tryin’ to make some girl, who tells me

Baby, better come back maybe next week

Can’t you see I’m on a losing streak?

I can’t get no, oh, no, no, no, 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
