‘Barracuda’ by Heart: Ann and Nancy Wilson




‘Heart’ is a hard rock band whose founding members are sisters, Ann and Nancy Wilson, from Seattle, Washington. The group rose to fame in the 70’s and 80’s with their music being influenced by hard rock as well as folk music. By the mid-1990’s, Heart went back to their hard rock roots which they continue to play today. They have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

One of their most famous hits ‘Barracuda’ was used for a brief time this summer during the Presidential campaign for Sarah Palin, who’s nickname is ‘Barracuda.’ Ann and Nancy Wilson were not happy about their music being used for the campaign. By the way, Fergie has a terrific version of ‘Barracuda’ as well that is pretty faithful to the classic by Heart.

Heart was ranked #57 on VH1’s ‘100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock’.




Barracuda Lyrics by Heart 1977
Songwriters: Anne Wilson, Nancy Wilson, Roger Fisher, Michael Derosier

So this aint the end –
I saw you again today
I had to turn my heart away
Smiled like the sun –
Kisses for real
And tales – it never fails!

You lying so low in the weeds
I bet you gonna ambush me
Youd have me down down down down on my knees
Now wouldnt you, barracuda?

Back over time we were all
Trying for free
You met the porpoise and me
No right no wrong, selling a song-
A name, whisper game.

If the real thing dont 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 dont do the trick
No, you better make up something quick
You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick
Ooooooohhhh, barra barracuda.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh.
