I tell ya
I went up to a big office one time in search of satisfaction
I said to the man, "Mister, may I have some satisfaction, please?"
He said, "What do you need?"
I said, "A thirty-two bedroom home, all my own
And a Ferrari, two-seater, gold trim, so I can look good, hey
What you say
Give me them good things
That's the kind of satisfaction I'm looking for
I'm my own one-man anti-poverty program
Please, come take care of me
A hundred thousand dollar check every week
Hey, what you say
I said
I can't get that kind of, uh, satisfaction
I been asking everybody I know, "Can't you please
Just let me have a little satisfaction?"
I have tried
Now, I have tried
I said I have tried, I have tried
I can't get no
They won't give it to me
Everybody said, are you crazy?
I been goin' around and askin' all kinds of people
Dropping on my knees, doin' a slight beg, y'see
I've even lost my cool at certain times and I have cried
Please, sir, can't you let me have a little old
Yes, now, cut it in half
You can even cut it down to one-fourth of what I asked for
Any kind will do
Give me, give me twenty dollars a week, I don't care
I'll pay the taxes on it
Give me an old 1952 car, I'll fix it up myself
