Hall & Oates - Did It In A Minute Lyrics




When you find yourself alone
And when going out is coming home
Well, you can count on the kid
'Cause there's nobody waiting around
Oh-oh, if you're not an easy mark
It's a shot in the dark that hits the heart
And I know, I know, I know, I know
When it's coming
(I thought so anyway)
Some things stay the same
And some are due for change
I thought I had them all nailed down
But you turned it around

Oh you did it
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it in a minute
(You did it)
(I know, I know, I know, I know)
I know you did it
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it in a minute
(You did it)

Well I still can't say I know
When a love is real or touch and go
And if two can be one
Who is the one two becomes, oh-oh
Am I quick enough to see
When I'm ready and it's right for me
I say, I say, I say, I say that I want it
I think so anyway
Everybody always laughs at love
But what they want is to be proven wrong
Then you came along

Oh you did it
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it in a minute
(You did it)
(I know, I know, I know, I know)
Oh-ooooh-oh
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it in a minute
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it in a minute
(You did it)

(I know, I know, I know, I know)
I know you did it, you did it, you did it
You did it, you did it in a minute
(You did it)
I didn't really plan it
But you did it, you did it, you did it
You did it, you did it in a minute
(You did it)
(I know, I know, I know, I know)
Oh-ooooh-oh
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it, you did it in a minute
(You did it)
I want someone to prove I'm wrong
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it, you did it in a minute
(You did it)
(I know, I know, I know, I know)
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it, you did it in a minute
(You did it)
You're messing with my love life
(You did it, you did it, you did it)
You did it, you did it, you did it
You did it in a minute

    When you find yourself alone
    And when going out is coming home
    You can count on the kid
    'Cause there's nobody waiting around

    Oh, oh, if you're not an easy mark
    It's a shot in the dark that hits the heart
    And I know, I know when it's coming
    I thought so anyway

    Somethings stay the same
    And some are due for a change
    I thought I had them all nailed down

    But you turned it around, boy
    You did it, you did it
    You did it, you did it
    You did it in a minute
    You did it

I think I might still be satisfied.....let me get my stop watch.......to time you.... to be sure how many seconds... it takes......for you to know........

  39. BolsaChicaRadio

    A bit of the odd & peculiar production story on this song. The studio version of "Did It In A Minute" appeared on the "Private Eyes" album in 1981, in sort of a much more anemic sounding, programmed type of style. This video here, a 'promotional rock video' if you will, was shot on some sort of sound stage in front of a studio audience, but when the audio track was mixed in post-production, the audience's "yelling, shouting, clapping and applauding" was mixed out for whatever, oddball reason. THEN, to make it even weirder, later that year, Hall & Oates appeared on Canadian television's SCTV's "The Sammy Maudlin Show" and performed it as a parody of themselves performing it (if that makes any sense) in front of the live SCTV audience BUT they "lip-synced" to this very audio track on THIS previously recorded live video! Huh, you may ask? Well, the SCTV piece looked fairly convincing, ONLY until the end, when the band attempted to do a VERY REAL HARD CRESCENDO ENDING...and the net effect was both Hall & Oats and the other 3 members of their band, TOTALLY, 100%, PREMIUM, GRADE-A, ROYALLY...MUFFED IT!!! They all tried to do the "Pete-Townsend-Arm-Slamming-Down-On-The-Strings" type-of-ending on their instruments and it ended up looking like the kids on Romper Room & Sesame Street, trying to play air guitar!!! It was a total frickin' train-wreck! I know I still have that on a VCR-VHS tape recording...I have to upload it...so EVERYONE could get a big laugh out of it! - BCRadio

    April Davis-Washington

    So you come on here and want everyone to laugh at Hall & Oates? Hmm...

  40. Eric Veritas Blair

    The flashing gave me a seizure. Thanks Haulin' Oats, you did it in a minute.

  41. masa

    ドラマーはnight rangerの方だったんですね!どこかで観た事があると!凄い誠実にプレーされていて、感動します。

  42. masa

    このコンサートは、どこで行われたのでしょうか?Where did they play?

  43. masa

    ああ美しい・・・。欲を言えばもっとベーシストを映してほしいです・・・・。ドラムも頑張ってますね・・・。

  44. Wanda Moonmaiden

    I can fall in love with Daryl Hall and John Oats music over and over again

  48. Paul DeCoster

    This song has the same catchiness with a pre-chorus that goes a little into left field.

  49. Julie Toothman

    yess ♥♥♥♥

  50. inyung lee

    My best song

  51. Martin Macdonald

    I first heard this on SCTV's fishin' musician with John Candy. The production blew me away.

  52. Russell Talley

  53. Bubbautah

    P Kranz

    @Shawn Lennox Micky returned to play on several tracks on the DIFL album, and Daryl's Laughing Down Crying, and also on some overdubs on the Box Set from 2009.

  54. Saladdin Yudono

    The intro alone takes me back to 1985 when I arrived in Chicago and was 10 yo.

    vxy357

    the beginning of the summer of 1982 for me.

  55. jdorisco

  56. Julie Toothman

    love this song...daryl is hot!!

  57. Leslie Pamela

    So fortunate to see them play 3 years in a row. They are absolutely the best ever! They have so many songs that are brilliantly written. Everytime I see them perform it is like the first time. My favorite is "Wait for me" and "I want to know you for a long time"

  58. Skewed and Reviewed Gareth Von Kallenbach

    Was so happy to finally hear this live from them on their recent tour after years of seeing them and not hearing it as part of their set.

  59. Julie Toothman

    gosh...so love this video!

  60. kimberly longman

    Conspiracy DID IT!! The red line is yellow. Gagnes AGAIN!!! it is still yellow at the very beginning. It is supposed to be solid red all the way across. The conspiracy is the K K K.

    Cobra SS

    kimberly longman I'm lost

  61. Marco Torres Paz

    Great remenber of the year 1981

    Jim Cholley

    1982..     :-]

  62. Paul Bordelon

    Saw them in Vienna VA last week - they played this song! So good!

  63. Bill Tolles

    #HallAndOates

  64. Rangers

    Is the bass player one of Larry, Darryl and Darryl from Newhart?

    April Davis-Washington

    I get it - LOL! Actually, here's some info on him. Not sure if you know. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Wolk

  65. j luke Hypernova

    Now THAT is a Song.

  66. Bobby Daniels

    Great song, OK video.

    Evelyn Almendral

    Bobby Daniels yeah

  67. Mike X

    "Private Eyes" is my favorite album of theirs. It's filled with so many great tracks!

    Evelyn Almendral

    Mike X I like so much I went to a concert but I think something changed

    chacho mordaz

    Even covers of the L.P. s were so much artistic in this time, the early 1980s

    InflatablePlane

    Don’t think Private Eyes has a bad track on it. Phenomenal.

    Sharon Jensen

    Deciding to produce their own albums was a good move. Risky, but good.

  68. melinda marki

    Been a fan since I was kid in the 70's and this still is my favorite. Not their best musical accomplishment, but nonetheless, one of my very favorites! These men have so much soul and pop righteousness! See you at Madison Square Garden-I'm soooo pumped!

  69. thekooosh

    Okay, that was dope. Where can I buy this version?

    Michael Lomenzo

    thekooosh should be on the live album they released from this tour

  70. jaemsyt

    The GE Smith era was awesome indeed.

    InflatablePlane

    jaemsyt oh yeah. He was excellent on X Static too.

    Scotabot

    Yes, GE is sooo..... underrated in my opinion. He is as much of the H&O sound as anyone in the band. The way he makes his Tele and Strat sing moves me to no end. And T-bone, need I say more? Masterful musician!!!!!!

    Mike Maxwell

    I love GE Smith. Here's an awesome guitarist.

  71. Jerome Lange

    One of the most CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED SONGS...EVER !

    Saladin Crawford

    It did peak at #9, but I think it's a little underrated. It definitely belongs in the top 10. I think Possession Obsession is the most underrated which peaked at #30.

    CYearly

    Perfect song: short, clean and tightly written. Absolutely great back-up vocal coordination, guitar riffs and ends in a way that you want to hear it again and again. Genius.

    The MIC - Music Inspiration Channel

    Many people have been arrested and incarcerated for underrating this song.

    Angela Kindness

    Billie is criminally overrated

    Nigello Flaveo

    Agree 100% ....not even a minor hit here in the UK [ to our eternal shame ]....THE chorus of all time - well, a contender anyway. Thanks for sharing this little masterpiece

  72. Stacey Marrone

    Great song!

  73. Shawn Defeudis

    Mo-town philly....
