Barracuda by Heart

Updated on July 5, 2014

Heart and Barracuda

Heart are one of the few bands led by women to have achieved success in the world of rock and roll.

Founded in 1974 in Seattle and led by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, Heart first saw success in Canada, with their blend of Folk and Hard Rock music.

They are ranked #57 on the VH1 100 Greatest Artists Of Hard Rock and i> which is one of their best known songs, reached #11 on the Billboard Top 40 in 1977. This song was rated by VH1 as the 34th Best Hard Rock Song of All Time.

Heart's best known album is probably their 1975 release Dreamboat Annie which led to their other great hits Crazy On You and Magic Man.

The band is still touring, I saw them about 5 years ago in Florida, where they put on a great performance.

Lyrics to Barracuda by Heart

So this ain't the end - I saw you again today

Had to turn my heart away

You smiled like the Sun - kisses for everyone

and tales - it never fails!

You lying so low in the weeds

Bet you gonna ambush me

You'd have me down on my knees

Wouldn't you, Barracuda?

Back over Time when we were all trying for free

Met up with porpoise and me

No right no wrong you're selling a Song - a name

whisper game

If the real thing don't do the trick

You better make up something quick

You gonna burn it out to the wick

aren't you, Barracuda?

"Sell me sell you" the porpoise said

Dive down deep to save my head

You... I think you got the blues too.

All that night and all the next

Swam without looking back

Made for the western pools -silly fools!

If the real thing don't do the trick

You better make up something quick

You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick

Ooooooh, barracuda?

Sell me, sell you the porpoise said

Dive down, deep down to save my head

You...i think you got the blues too.

All that night and all the next

Swam without looking back

Made for the western pools - silly fools!

If the real thing don't do the trick

No, you better make up something quick

You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick

Ooooooohhhh, barra barracuda.
