    about it from wiki

    "Barracuda" is a song written and recorded by the rock band Heart. It was released as the first single from the band's second album Little Queen in 1977. The song is an aggressive rock and roll number which immediately drew comparisons to Led Zeppelin, particularly with Ann Wilson's vocal delivery on the chorus: "...you're gonna burn, burn, burn into the wick..."

    Upon its release "Barracuda" became Heart's second top-twenty hit in the U.S., peaking at number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100. The song has become one of the band's signature tunes and is still a staple on American classic rock radio playlists.

    lyrics

    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.
