ZZ Top - Have You Heard Lyrics




Have you heard 'bout Jo Ti Mahr,
yeah yeah yeah?
Well, then you could not be lost,
yeah yeah yeah.

Which way are you comin' from,
goin' up or gettin' down?
Well, have you thought about it some
or have you put it down?

Have you heard about heaven,
yeah yeah yeah?
Seven come eleven,
yeah yeah yeah.

Have you heard, dear brother,
yeah yeah yeah?
Well, let's help one another,
yeah yeah yeah.

Have you heard, oh yeh?
Have you heard, oh yeh?
Have you heard, oh yeh?
Have you heard, oh yeh?
Have you heard, oh yeh?
Have you heard, oh yeh?
Have you heard, oh yeh?
[repeat & fade]

    Yep! And "Have You Heard?" is Billy and Dusty's homage to the preachers and gospel/spiritual music they heard--among other programming and musical genres--on XERB and other Mexican AM border blasters back when they were kids.

    It's all there in the first-line phrase, "Nació te amar," which is Spanish for "He (Jesus) was born to love you." Of course, the phrase is commonly misheard and transcribed as "'bout Jo Ti Mahr," which some people have attempted to explain through a fast-and-loose interpretation of Sikh scripture and Arabic words as "dowry of the light," which could indeed be construed as a spiritual concept of sorts. But simpler explanations are more likely to be correct than complex ones; consequently, it's safe to say Messrs. Gibbons and Hill are far more familiar with Spanish than they are with Pidgin Punjabi.
