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
Ooh, ooh, 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're 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 you're never gonna forget, baby
You know, you know, you know you just ain't seen nothin' yet

You need educatin'
You gotta 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 some, lover, that you're 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
You got something for me when I get home
It better be good
I been everywhere
But I ain't seen nothin' yet
I deserve it one of these days
But I ain't seen nothin' yet
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
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

    General CommentI've heard this song countless time in my life. I always thought "You ain't seen nothin' yet" meant she was going to blow him away with loving like he's never had.

    No, she means she's going to destroy him and break his heart in a way he's never experienced. "You think you've been hurt before? You ain't seen nothin' yet."

    And he sees himself as a willing victim. He also thinks any love is good love and he deserve what he gets.

    I just never realized what a scorching song this is.

    My InterpretationI love this song! For me, it talks about the "forbidden fruit", the seemingly "bad investment".

    It is when you meet someone who is clearly bad for you but you go for it anyway.
    >"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"

    You go for it not out of naivety, but because you find value in any form of romantic experience. Or at least that's what you think.
    >"I think that any love is good lovin'.
    >So I took what I could get, mmh"

    The chorus demonstrates that, despite your good will and effort to keep your shit together, and as hard as things seem with a person who is unfit to be beside you, you have absolutely no clue of how ugly, even traumatizing, things can get towards the inevitable end.
    >"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"

    Still so, Randy Bachman thinks it's worth it. Because in life you need to see things and go places. So bring it on! You hit hard while I build character!
    >"Woohoo, but I ain't seen nothin' yet
    >Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
    >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."

    General CommentThis band is my hometown heros. Even though they were just a one hit wonder, being able to say I can go to Bachman mansion anytime I want to is pretty awesome, and I love this song.

    General Commenttcob= takin care of business. i was watching VH1 one hit wonders and this song came on and they said it was a mistake and it was never supposed to release becuz it was just the singer makin fun of his little brother (if i remember this right) becuz his little brother stuttered. yea, its really catchy, i agree. it reminds my of- mc hammer- u cant touch this. cuz its one of those lines that u just say to people no matter what. like "Well, YOU AINT SEEN NOTHING YET." u know how every once in a while somebody will be bragging and saying "CAN'T TOUCH THIS." thats what it reminds me of.
