Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones

Formed in 1962, the Rolling Stones are a rock band from London. Countering the pop rock of the early sixties they pioneered the gritty and heaver-driven sound that came to define hard rock. The first line-up consisted of Mick Jagger (vocals0, Brian Jones (multi-instrumentalist, Keith Richards (guitar), Charlie Watts (drummer) and Bill Wyman (bass). Brian Jones led the band, putting it together, naming it and diving the sound and look of the band. In 1963 Andrew Oldman became their manager and encouraged them to write their own songs. Jagger and Richards the primary creative force behind the Rolling Stones. Alienated Jones developed a drug addiction and left the band in 1969 shortly before his death. He was replaced by Mick Taylor who left in 1974 and Ronnie Wood joined the band. Following the departure of Bill Wyman in 1993 the band has continued with a four-piece core with Daryll Jones playing bass on tours and on most studio recordings.

Lyrics by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger

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 drivin’ in my car, and the man come on the radio
He’s tellin’ 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
