The Guess Who is een Canadese rockband. Het festival Le Guess Who? is naar hen vernoemd. De geschiedenis van The Guess Who gaat terug tot 1958, toen Chad Allan (zang) in Winnipeg zijn band Al and the Silvertones oprichtte. Deze band veranderde haar naam later in Chad Allan and the Reflections en daarna in The Expressions. Nadat in december 1965 Burton Cummings (zang, piano) zich bij de groep voegde en in mei 1966 Allan en Ashley de band verlieten, werd The Guess Who als vaste bandnaam gekozen. In de jaren 70 scoorden ze met onder meer "American Woman", "Dancing Fool" en "Clap For The Wolfman". Bachman vertrok na ruzies met Burton Cummings en zou tegen die tijd zelf succesvol worden met Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

Songtekst

Anybody here see the noise, see the fear and commotion?
I think we missed it
Anybody here see the love, see the hate being motioned?

Don't give me no hand me down shoes
Don't give me no hand me down love
Don't give me no hand me down world
I got one already

Anybody here see the long distance cheer for the notion?
I think we missed it
Anybody here see the sky weeping tears for the ocean?

Don't give me no hand me down shoes
Don't give me no hand me down love
Don't give me no hand me down world
I got one already

Anybody here see the fuzzy-wuzzy loving cup explosion?
I think we missed it
Anybody here see the changing of the year-end emotion?

Don't give me no hand me down shoes
Don't give me no hand me down love
Don't give me no hand me down world
I got one already

(Don't give me no hand me down world)
I don't really need it and I'm not gonna take it
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
Don't give it to me 'cause I really don't want it
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
I don't wanna take it and I really don't need it, now
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
I don't wanna take it and I really don't need it
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
Don't wanna take it, don't wanna take it 'cause I don't wanna need it
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
You know I don't want it, know I don't need it
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
You know I don't want it, know I don't need it
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
You know I don't want it and I'm not gonna take it
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
Don't wanna take it 'cause I don't really need it
(Don't give me no hand me down world)
Just don't give it to me, don't wanna take it
