U2: Poem before Beautiful Day in Winnipeg

So Bono and two women from the audience decide to recite the lyrics to You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet by Bachman Turner Overdrive in Winnepeg. BTO was a band out of Winnipeg so an obvious choice!!

Excellent video of Bono and the two women:

Here’s a weird video of it – turn upside down, it may help!

Here’s a version of the original:

And here’s the lyrics:
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 say that any love is good lovin’
So I took what I could get mmh, mmh, mmh
She looked at me with them brown eyes

And said, You ain’t seen nothin’ yet
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain’t seen n-n-n-nothin’ yet
Here’s something that you’re never gonna forget
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain’t seen n-n-n-nothin’ yet
And you’re thinkin’ you ain’t been around, that’s right

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-n-nothin’ yet
Here’s something, here’s something that you’re never gonna forget, baby
B-B-B-Baby, you know, you know, you know, you just ain’t seen nothin’ yet
You need an education, got to go to school

Any lovin’ 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-n-nothin’ yet
Here’s something, here’s something
Here’s a lover you’re never gonna forget, baby
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain’t seen n-n-n-nothin’ yet
You ain’t been around
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet, that’s what she told me
She said, I need an education, go to school

I know I ain’t seen nothin’ yet
I know I ain’t seen nothin’ yet, mmh, mmh, mmh
I got something for you right now
Feels good, alright, how do you do that
But I ain’t seen nothin’ yet
But I deserve it one of these days
Woohoo, but I ain’t seen nothin’ yet
I ain’t seen nothin’ yet
Yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah
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
Owowowowowowo

    Let me be the first to say, despite the Winnipeg connection… WTF? They should have just performed Dancing Queen.
