Well I saw this couple
Just the other day
Livin' under a bridge
In a homeless way

Like a million others
All over this land
Livin' day to day
Without a master plan

In this unforgiving world
There ain't no doubt
It will chew you up
And it will spit you out
She calls him barracuda
My barracuda

She used to work in the circus
A real high wire act
He was a lion tamer
Up until the attack

He came without instructions
Then he came unglued
Now he's just a monster
in a human suit
She calls him barracuda
My barracuda

She still can't figure out
What she's doin' down here
Ans she don't know
If he loves her or not

He may be a barracuda
But he's the only lover she's got
Barracuda
