Satisfaction

Rolling Stones


CHORUS:

E                   A

I can't get no satisfaction

E                   A
I can't get no satisfaction

E                      B7                    E           A
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try

E                   D  A
I can't get no

E                   D  A
I can't get no

 

               E                 D     A
When I'm drivin' in my car

               E                          D     A
And that man comes on the radio

        E                             D     A
He's tellin' me more and more

                    E                  D     A
About some useless information

                   E                   D     A
Supposed to fire my imagination

            E     D     A       E
I can't get no, oh no no no

When I'm watchin' my TV

And that man comes on to tell me

           E                        D     A
How white my shirts can be

             E                                    D                A
But he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke

         E                          D     A
The same cigarrettes as me

            E     D     A       E
I can't get no, oh no no no

CHORUS

               E                        D     A
When I'm ridin' round the world

               E                        D             A
And I'm doin' this and I'm signing that

               E                          D     A
And I'm tryin' to make some girl

                      E                               D                    A
Who tells me baby better come back later next week

                  E               D               A
'Cause you see I'm on losing streak
            E     D     A       E
I can't get no, oh no no no
