Bachman Turner Overdrive - You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet




"You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" was written by Randy Bachman. Randy developed the song while recording BTO's third album, Not Fragile (1974). It began as an instrumental piece inspired by the rhythm guitar on Dave Mason's "Only You Know and I Know". Randy says "it was basically just an instrumental and I was fooling around... I wrote the lyrics, out of the blue, and stuttered them through." The band typically used the song as a "work track" in the studio to get the amplifiers and microphones set properly.


The lyrics for the song tell of the singer meeting a "devil woman" who gives him love. The chorus of the song includes the song's famous stutter and speaks of her looking at him with big brown eyes and [saying] 'You ain't seen nothin' yet. B-, b-, b-, baby, you just ain't seen na, na, nothin yet. Here's somethin' that you're never gonna forget. B-, b-, b-, baby, you just ain't seen na, na, nothin yet.'





Lyrics


I met a devil woman

She took my heart away

She said, I've had it comin' to me

But I wanted it that way

I think that any love is good lovin'

So I took what I could get, mmh

Oooh, oooh she looked at me with big brown eyes


And said,

You ain't seen nothin' yet

B-b-b-baby, you just ain't seen n-n-nothin' yet

Here's something that you never gonna forget

B-b-b-baby, you just ain't seen n-n-nothin' yet


Nothin' yet, you ain't been around

That's what they told me


And now I'm feelin' better

'Cause I found out for sure

She took me to her doctor

And he told me of a cure

He said that any love is good love

So I took what I could get

Yes, I took what I could get

And then she looked at me with them big brown eyes


And said,

You ain't seen nothin' yet

B-b-b-baby, you just ain't seen n-n-nothin' yet

Here's something, here's something your never gonna forget, baby

You know, you know, you know you just ain't seen nothin' yet


You need educatin'

You got to got to school


Any love is good lovin'

So I took what I could get

Yes, I took what I could get

And then, and then, and then

She looked at me with them big brown eyes


And said,

You ain't seen nothin' yet

Baby, you just ain't seen n-n-nothin' yet

Here's something, here's something

Here's something that your never gonna forget, baby

Baby, baby, baby you ain't seen n-n-nothin' yet

You ain't been around

You ain't seen nothin' yet

That's what she told me

She said, I needed educatin', go to school

I know I ain't seen nothin' yet

I know I ain't seen nothin' yet

Got something for you right now

Feels good, alright, how do you do that?

But I ain't seen nothin' yet

I deserve it one of these days

Woohoo, but I ain't seen nothin' yet

Yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah

I ain't seen nothin' yet

I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait

If you want to show me what I ain't seen, where I ain't been

Lalalalalala
