Oh! Sweet Nuthin'
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
Not a shirt right of 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 of his feet
To 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 nutin'
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 said
Oh sweet nuthin'
You know she ain't got nothing at all
Oh sweet nutin'
She ain't got nothing at all

Oh let me hear you!
Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
Not a shirt right of 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 of his feet
To 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 nutin'
She ain't got nothing at all
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh sweet nutin'

She ain't got nothing at all
She ain't got nothing at all
She ain't got nothing at all

Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
Not a 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
To 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 said
Oh sweet nuthin'
You know she ain't got nothing at all
Oh sweet nuthin’
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh let me hear you!
Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
Not a shirt right of 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
To 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
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
She ain't got nothing at all
She ain't got nothing at all

The Velvet Underground - Oh! Sweet Nuthin'

[Verse 1]
Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
He knocked the shirt right off his back
He ain't got nothing at all
And say a word for Ginger Brown
He walks with his head down to the ground
Took the shoes right off his feet
And threw the poor boy right out in the street
And this is what he said

[Chorus]
Oh sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nuthin' at all
Oh sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nuthin' at all

[Verse 2]
Say a word for Pearly May
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 nothing at all
With every day she falls in love
And every night she falls
And when she does she says

[Chorus]
Oh sweet nuthin'
You know she ain't got nuthin' at all
Whoa oh, sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nuthin' at all
Oh let me hear you

[Guitar solo]

[Verse 3]
Oh, say a word, say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all, not a thing
And not a 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
He took the shoes, took the shoes from his feet, from his feet
And threw the poor boy out into the street
And then he said

[Chorus]
Oh sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got, she ain't got, she ain't got nuthin' at all
Sweet sweet, sweet sweet nuthin'
(Ain't got nothing at all)
She ain't got
Sweet sweet nuthin'
Sweet sweet nuthin' at all
Sweet sweet nuthin' got nuthin'
Oh sweet nuthin'
Oh oh sweet nuthin' at all
Oh let me hear you

[Guitar solo]
Oh, sweet nuthin'

[Outro]
She ain't got nuthin' at all
She ain't got nuthin' at all
She ain't got nuthin' at all
She ain't got nuthin' at all
She ain't got nuthin' at all
She ain't got nuthin' at all
Sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nuthin' at all
Sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nuthin' at all

I used to do drugs to this song...I can't even listen to this album without breaking down. That feeling of emptiness is something that I certainly don't miss. Beautiful song and album by the Velvet Underground

Same, songs like this, Sweet Jane and Beginning to see the light have a special place in my heart.

They remind me of the best and the worst times.

Winston Churchill

Hey man I’m glad you’re doing better, that’s all that matters now.
