Promo for the 1978 reissue of "Satisfaction"

"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" is a song, originally written and recorded by The Rolling Stones in 1965, later covered by The Residents for their 1976 single "Satisfaction".

History Edit

Early rough instrumental versions of the same song can be heard on the group's first two known demo tapes, The Ballad of Stuffed Trigger and Rusty Coathangers for the Doctor, from 1970.

"Satisfaction" was performed at The Residents' first official live performance in 1976, and was also the penultimate song in the set list of the group's debut performance tour The Mole Show in 1983, segueing into the closing number, "Happy Home".

Lyrics (1976 version) Edit

I can't get no
I can't get no
Satisfaction
When I'm at the football game
And the jack falls down and fumbles
And his skull goes back
And he breaks his neck
I just laugh and crack my knuckles
I can't get no
I can't get no
Satisfaction
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
That's what I say
When I'm at the picture show
And I can't get no popcorn
And I grab a knife
And I stab at it
And I beat on Dinah Shore
And you think I'm all messed up
Well I think you're all messed up
And I grab a gun and I blow the gun...
When I'm goin' to my job
And I'm riding on the bus
And I grit my teeth
And I clench my fist
And I rip up this whole bus
Satisfaction
Satisfaction
Satisfaction
Satisfaction
Satisfaction
Satisfaction
Satisfaction
Satisfaction
Satisfaction
