Oh! Sweet Nuthin' Lyrics

by Velvet Underground

Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothin' at all
Not the shirt right off his back
He ain't got nothin' at all

And say a word for Ginger Brown
Walks with his head down to the ground
Took the shoes right off his feet
They threw the poor boy right out in the street
And this is what he said

Oh! Sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothin' at all
Oh! Sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothin' at all

Say a word for Pearly Mae
She can't tell the night from the day
They threw her out in the street
Just like a cat she landed on her feet

And say a word for Joana Love
She ain't got nothin' at all
With every day she falls in love
And every night she falls
And when she does, she says

Oh! Sweet nuthin'
You know she ain't got nothin' at all
Wow, oh! Sweet nuthin', hey, hey
She ain't got nothin' at all
Oh, let me hear you

Oh, say a word, say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothin' at all, not a thing
Not the shirt, shirt on his back
No he ain't got nothin' at all

And say a word for Ginger
He walks with his head to the ground
They took shoes, took the shoes, from his feet, from his feet
And threw the poor boy right out in the street
And then, he said

Oh! Sweet, sweet, nothin'
She ain't got, she ain't got
She ain't got nothin' at all
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet nothin'

She ain't got
Sweet, sweet, nothin' sweet, sweet, nothin'
Nothin' at all
Sweet, sweet nothin', got nothin'

Oh! Sweet nuthin'
Oh, oh, oh, ain't got nothin' at all
Oh, let me hear you

(Oh! Sweet nuthin' ain't got nothin' at all)
Oh! Sweet nuthin'
(Oh! Sweet nuthin' ain't got nothin' at all)

She ain't got nothin' at all
She ain't got nothin' at all
She ain't got nothin' at all
She ain't got nothin' at all

She ain't got nothin' at all, sweet nothin'
Ain't got nothin' at all, sweet, sweet nothin'
She ain't got nothin' at all
