Barracuda by Heart is featured in Trio, the tenth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Elliott and Rachel.

Rachel is in NYADA about to start rehearsing for her Funny Girl role when is interrupted by Elliott. She explains him she has her own band and they can use it whenever they want. After a little talk about Rachel moving with Elliott, she suggests they should sing something together, and he proposes this song.


So this ain't the end, I saw you again today
I had to turn my heart away, eeh
Smiled like the sun, kisses for everyone
And tales, it never fails, alright!

You lying so low into the weeds
Yeah, bet you wanna ambush me

Elliott (and Rachel):
You have me (down, down, down, down on my knees)
(Now) Wouldn't you (Rachel: Woo)
(Barracuda?) Oh, yeah (Rachel: Oooh!)

Back over time we were all trying for free
You met up with porpoise and me, uh uh

No right no wrong, selling a song, a name
Whisper game
And if the real thing don't do the trick

Elliott and Rachel:
You better make up something quick
(Elliott: You gonna) burn, burn, burn, burn, burn to the wick
Now, woo, Barracuda?
(Rachel: Awoo!) (Elliott: Oooh yeah!)
(Rachel: Oh yeah)

"Sell me, sell you" the porpoise said
Dive down deep now save my head

You (Rachel: Oh!)
I think you got the blues too, yeah

Elliott and Rachel:
All that night and all the next
Swam without looking back

Elliott (and Rachel):
Made for the western pools (silly, silly fools!)
Oooh yeah!

If the real thing don't do the trick
You better (make up something quick)
You gonna (burn, burn, burn, burn, burn into the wick)

Ooh, Barra-Barracuda (Rachel: Barra-barracuda!)
Yeah! Yeah! Oooh noo woah! Oooh! C'mon yeah yeah! (Rachel: Ooh!)
Yeah, yeah, yeah! Barracuda! (Rachel: Ooh!)

Elliott and Rachel:
Oh! Oh! Oh!

Ooh, hey (Elliott: Barracuda)
