Why Can't I Be Satisfied?

This song is by Jack the Lad and appears on the album It's... Jack The Lad (1974).

I've found you there were good to me
But I just didn't care
You should've seen the way I made my mother cry
But I'll burn my bridges soon
By spitting out my silver spoon
To wander off beneath that open sky

So tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?
Tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?

From town to town I gambled
With my fortune and my back
And the more I played, the more she used to smile
But that easy life that came
From my money and my new-found fame
Could only keep me happy for a while

So tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?
Tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?

With silver on my table now
And gold upon my teeth
And a crowd of friends with nowhere else to stay
I have found out my reward
That my destiny is to be bored
And discontented till my dying day

So tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?
Tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?

Tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?
Tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?

Tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied?
Tell me why
Why can't I be satisfied? All right
