Devo - Satisfaction Lyrics




I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get me no satisfaction
And I try and I try and I try t-t-t-t-try try
I can't no, I can't get me no

When I'm riding in my car
And a man comes on the radio
He's tellin' 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

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get me no girl reaction
And I try and I try and I try t-t-t-t-try try
I can't no, I can't get me no

When I'm watchin' my TV
And a man comes on to tell me
How white my shirts could me
But he can't be a man 'cause he does not smoke
The same cigarettes as me

I can't get no
No-no, no
Hey, hey, hey
That's what I say

And when I'm flying 'round the world
And I'm doin' this and I'm tryin' do that
And I'm trying to make some girl
Who tells me babybabybabybabybabybabybabybabybabybaby....
Better come back later next week
Can't you see I'm on a losing streak

I can't get no
No-no, no
Hey, hey, hey
That's what I say

I can't get no (satisfaction)
I can't get me no (satisfaction)

    WOW YOU GUYS TOOK SOMEONE ELSES SONG TRANSFORMED IT CREATIVELY INTO A UNIQUE VERSION OF WHAT THE ORIGINAL CREATORS HAD PUT OUT THERE AND DIDN'T GET IT TAKEN DOWN IMMEDIATELY AFTER POSTING!?! THAT'S INSANE! BUT WHEN I DO IT AND CREATE SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT EVEN CHANGE THE LYRICS SO IT WASNT EVEN A "COVER" BUT RATHER A PARODY (WHICH IS WITHIN FAIR USE) WITH YOUR WORK WITHOUT INTENT TO PROFIT AND WITHOUT INFRINGEMENT YOU RAILROAD ME LIKE IM THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE!?! MAKES SENSE TO ME! THE NEXT TIME YOU TAKE A SHIT I HOPE SOMEONE SUES YOU FOR TAKING THEIR FOOD AND TRANSFORMING IT INTO SHIT AND TRYING TO PASS IT OFF AS YOUR OWN. #DOWNWITHDEVO

  19. boboala1

    I tried doing the flip like the guy at :56, but just passed gas and crapped my pants! Oh, and broke thoracic 2, 3 & 4...and my ass! (It's still cracked!) Also, I sure hope that was Mark's REAL girlfriend whose 'fun bag' he was groping at 1:09! They should get married first before touching body parts...don't need the stigma of living in sin, now do we!? Otherwise, this is one of the neatest most original arrangments/renditions of a classic rock song they is!!

  20. espen thoresen

    love it

  21. eno

    This song sucks but the video is the greatest thing ever

    Gëfägnïs Sïngäfëg

    Fucking genius!!!! The best band in the galaxy.

  25. Todd Leonard

    Brilliant

  26. David Rohrer

    Went to see Animal House in the theatre back in 1978 and this song came on in the coming attractions. Not sure what movie it was for but I was 14 and thought Animal House was the best movie ever and this song and weird video kinda freaked me out!

  27. Pandy's Oubliette

    I knew Devo, but had never seen this video before. Weird Al's Dare to be Stupid makes a lot more sense now :D

  28. mrsleep0000

    0:44 Mark Motherbaughs dad!

  29. Pat Downs

    Sheerest brilliance. That's what I say.

  30. Silvio César

    Esses doidos tem umas que até é gostosinhas

    Silvio César

    Esse doidos tem umas músicas que até são gostosinhas

  31. Silvio César

    Alken peidou kkkkkkkk

  32. Spencer Baldwin

    Great cover version, Devo so unique as a band, just as original as Talking Heads and the B52's absolutely awesome.... Has anybody watched The Cardiacs? Look up Tarred and Feathered... Mayhem😀

  33. Jonathan White

    I saw them live in Santa Rosa, California, THEN, in a small theatre. Best show, ever, and I saw countless shows in those days. They were a great live band.

  34. Sky Surfer

    Cool Funky Cover!👍😄

  35. P.J. Snow

    Let's see Mick do that!

  36. punpun

    Strap me up and whip me good, cuz this right here is a fucking CERTIFIED BANGER.

  37. Ricky Valentine

    Because DEVO Are The TRUE Pioneers Of Rock and Roll Music Videos.
    DEVO is Ahead of Their Time ,!

  39. diogenes's dog

    at this moment , the rhythm/beat are just right for me . not too fast , not too slow.

  40. diogenes's dog

    this cover better than rolling stones original

  41. Elaine Clements Finn

    That baby with the toaster...my sides hurt !

  42. Francis LECLAIRE

    La meilleure reprise des rolling stones. Francis 93

  43. Holocene Times

    Boojie boy is okay. It was just a short sharp shock.

  44. Mark Vineyard

    Outstanding job. But this is actually my 2nd favorite DEVO cover. The 1st is "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini"! Sheer insanity...

  45. irishguy13

    NoNoNoNoNoNoNoNOno.

  46. Max Gibson

    The ultimate cover

  47. Ed Leonardi

    Devo/Talking Heads/B 52s = Soundtrack of my life.

  48. Allfreeandhappy79

    was this the first one made?

  49. Jacq J

    No one is going to talk about that toothpick of a guitar?

  50. cum no more

    all u guys out there . if you start having problems peeing and abdominal cramps so bad you can't sleep , do not let a butcher, i mean urologist talk you into a TURP surgery . after that you ain't going to have any of a certain kind of satisfaction , that is sex, whatsoever . tell him you want the meds and the intermittent catheters . (its not the kind thats in your pecker permanently , only used a couple times a day to get the excess urine out of you )

  51. RED BALL73

    Awesome Bass guitar

  52. inertia27

    greatest cover version of all time

  53. shortylickens69

    for some reason I imagine listening to this on my Pip Boy whilst manouvering the ruins of post-apocalypse Manhattan, a mutant poodle at my side and pack full of grilled rat meat on my back. Drugged out gang-bangers fast on my tail.
    They want my radioactive soda pop.
    I will not relinquish it.

  54. Stephen Mark

    I am from the Cleveland/Akron area where Devo originated and I have always loved this band. Here they take a great Rolling Stones song and make it totally their own. The video also never fails to crack me up due to its sheer weirdness. The old man/baby in the playpen sticking a fork in the toaster gets me every time.

  55. Glen Gamble

    I always wondered who former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted reminded me of...I now know; Mark Mothersbaugh (sp?) of Devo!

  56. Gary Kovach

    This is a BF LIE. I just got me sum. ... and 1.2k ... are ... not.

  57. Alex Redfield

    What is the time signature for this?

    inertia27

    its just 4/4 time just with odd accents

  58. The HardTruth

    "Peek-a-boo, you fucks, you!"

    Mario Terranova

    A Great Video
    Peek a Boo DEVO posted by

  59. Scattle Bloodline

    shout the cops houses

  60. J A M

    how did we get here now in music when it was so much odder back in the 80's? I guess everyone is just too cool today. Well, I'm glad I'm a dork.

    Frederick Röders

    Its a fucking tragedy I tell you! Everything has been dumbed down! Media is being dumbed down because the people that watch media reflect intelligence to whatever they consume.
    We need a revolution to fix this because today everybody is beint turned into a consumerist zombie.
    Nobody ever thinks about anything anymore!!
    Please get mad, its about time we did...

  61. bruh baby

    Is that making fun of david bowie or david bowie fuckin around

  62. Pat McGannon

    I would much rather see the B 52's in concert than Devo.

  63. Noah Vale

    I miss my MTV !

  64. Gibson Rickenbacker

    it dont get no new wave/punker than this

  65. TheTralfaz

    Cant listen to the original any more.......the Stones should attempt this version....would'nt that be sumthin

  66. Robert Zimmerman

    Que banda estranha, gostei

  67. Silvio César

    Alguém peidou kkkkkkkk

  68. Eigono Kyoushi

    So ahead of their time. Brilliant.

  69. Silvio César

    É uma paródia da música dos Rolling Stones kkkkkkkk

    Vitorio Pedrelli

    Não é uma paródia e sim um cover

    Silvio César

    Ah é com certeza esses caras são doidoes

  70. Somewhere South of Minnesota

    This may be the coolest cover in music history.

  71. Gurbinder Sekhon

    Is this what became Daft punk???

  72. LiLRip#

    It's 2019 and I still can't get no satisfaction. I'll never stop tryin

  73. beefy a la penis

    I remember when they did this song live on SNL....

    The De EVOlution of man kind. Wendy O Williams had the same message..

  74. Javier Mendoza

    Better than the original 😉

  75. Desmaad

    Looks undercranked; everyone moves all jerkily.

  76. Robert Mailloux

    I wonder sometimes what happened to the guy doing a flip.

  77. Andy Christ

    I only watched this to see if that one Fear song was a cover. This is gonna screw up my suggestions

  78. Doug Piranha

    Their best stage outfits ever, dressed for Three Mile Island.

  79. bill boquet

    dna of genius

  80. Spike Bender

    Whats cool is bands doing DEVO covers. ie: Soundgarden

  81. Jerome Lund

  83. Ana Paula Decroix

    Os caras são Nerds kkkk

  84. Ralf Bond

  85. Timothy Midgett

    New wave funky ass off the wall remake of a Rolling Stones song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  86. Ad Mark

    BORING; the robot thing is moronic.

    Guy Boost

    This is The Rolling Stones favorite
    Cover of thier song
    So Shut up !

  87. OSTO SPACE

    it was not until i experienced this on MTV a hundred years ago, that I said....."hmmm...DEVO may be on to something..." -fan ever since...even their bizarre work on the cartoon "Rugrats" was some cool synth work...haha

  88. osamu

    好きだったなー

  89. Johnboy

    Beautiful classic!!

  90. Leonardo garcia

    Casino "Martin Scorsese"

  91. X-OR

    Mick Jagger said the was his favorite cover of this song.

  92. kaguth

    Has to be one of the best covers ever. They take the original song but make it into something so unique, yet it somehow fits the original.

  93. James Matthews

    When my brother heard this cover, he said: "The Stones are rolling in their cocaine!"

  94. 54youcyan

    VERY  GOOD!”

  95. Craig L

    When they try to say a cover is always better than the original.
