"Oh! Sweet Nuthin'" as written by and Lou Reed....
Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
Not the shirt right off his back
He ain't got nothing at all

And say a word for Ginger Brown
Walks with his head down to the ground
Took the shoes right off his feet
Threw the poor boy right out in the street

And this is what he said

Oh sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all

Say a word for Polly May
She can't tell the night from the day
They threw her out in the street
But just like a cat she landed on her feet

And say a word for Joanna Love
She ain't got nothing at all
'Cause everyday she falls in love
And every night she falls when she does, she says

Oh sweet nuthin'
You know she ain't got nothin' at all
Oh sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all

Oh, let me hear you

Oh, Say a word, say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
Not a thing
Not the shirt, shirt on his back
No he ain't got nothing at all

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

And then he said
Oh sweet, sweet nuthin'
She ain't got, she ain't got, she ain't got nothing at all
Sweet sweet, sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all

Oh sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all

Oh, let me hear you

Oh sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
