He had no idea he had written it. While they make reference to a hotel room at the Fort Harrison Hotel in Clearwater, Florida a house in Chelsea and the London Hilton,  Richards wrote in his most recent autobiography that he was in his flat in Carlton Hill, St. John's Wood. He specifies that Mick Jagger wrote the lyrics by the pool in Clearwater, four days before they went into the studio,  hence the confusion.
The Stones lip-synched to a dub of this version the first time they debuted the song on the American music variety television programme Shindig! Like most of the Stones' pre recordings, "Satisfaction" was originally released in mono only. In the mids, a true stereo version of the song was released on German and Japanese editions of the CD reissue of Hot Rocks — The stereo mix features a piano played by session player Jack Nitzschewho also provides the song's iconic tambourine and acoustic guitar that are barely audible in the original mono release both instruments are also audible on a bootleg recording of the instrumental track.
This stereo mix of "Satisfaction" also appeared on a radio-promo CD of rare stereo tracks provided to US radio stations in the mids, but has not yet been featured on a worldwide commercial CD; even later pressings of the German and Japanese Hot Rocks CDs feature the mono mix, making the earlier releases with the stereo mix collectors' items. For the worldwide reissue of Hot Rocksan alternative quasi-stereo mix was used featuring the lead guitar, bass, drums, and vocals in the center channel and the acoustic guitar and piano "split" left and right via a delay effect.
The song opens with the guitar riff, which is joined by the bass halfway through. It is repeated three times with the drums and acoustic guitar before the vocal enters with the line: "I can't get no satisfaction".
The key is E major, but with the 3rd and 7th degree occasionally Nothings Happening By The Sea - Chris Rea - Water Sign, creating — in the first part of the verses "I can't get no The accompanying chords i.
E major, D major and A major are borrowed from the E mixolydian scale, which is often used in blues and rock. The title line is an example of a negative concord. Jagger sings the verses in a tone hovering between cynical commentary and frustrated protest, and then leaps half singing and half yelling into the choruswhere the guitar riff reappears.
The lyrics outline the singer's irritation and confusion with the increasing commercialism of the modern world, where the radio broadcasts "useless information" and a man on television tells him "how white my shirts can be — but he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke the same cigarettes as me," a reference to the then ubiquitous Marlboro Cowboy style advertisement.
Jagger also describes the stress of being a celebrity, and the tensions of touring. The reference in the verse to not getting any "girl reaction" was fairly controversial in its day, interpreted by some listeners and radio programmers as meaning a girl willing to have sex. Jagger commented that they "didn't understand the dirtiest line", as afterwards the girl asks him to return the following week as she is "on a losing streak,"  an apparent reference to menstruation.
The song closes with a fairly subdued repetition of the song's title, followed suddenly by a full shout of the line, with the final words repeated into the fade-out. In its day the song was perceived as disturbing because of both its sexual connotations and the negative view of commercialism and other aspects of modern culture; critic Paul Gambaccini stated: "The lyrics to this were truly threatening to Jokainen Päivä On Liikaa (Killing Me Softly With His Song) - Marion - Lauluja Sinusta older audience.
This song was perceived as an attack on the status quo".

Decca was already in the process of preparing a live Rolling Stones EP for release, so the new single did not come out in Britain until 20 August,  with "The Spider and the Fly" on the B-side. In the decades since its release, "Satisfaction" has repeatedly been acclaimed by the music industry.

There was a resurgence of interest in the song after it was prominently featured in the movie Apocalypse Now. InVox listed "Satisfaction" among " records that shook the world".

The song has become a staple at Rolling Stones shows. They have performed it on nearly every tour since its release, and concert renditions have been included on the albums Got Live If You Want It!

Redding claimed that he did not know the lyrics of the song. I set down to a record player and copied down what I thought the lyrics were and I handed Otis a piece of paper and before we got through with the cut, he threw the paper on the floor and that was it.
