    Which songs do you think have Dave's best lyrics. In A Simple Rhyme has got to be one of the best:

    Well, back in the past when I was, treated so coldly
    My love life was a darn disgrace
    Needed someone to love n' hold me
    That's one of the reasons that I was outta place
    So, this is love? Well she finally kissed me
    Had me all worked up inside
    I wanted love but cupid missed me
    She up and left and I almost died

    But I was young and I was far from lonely
    I been that way for a long, long year
    Needed a girl to call my one and only
    Is that you?

    Ya think ya got the interest?
    Come on an' take the time
    'Cause you know, I wanna be
    Yours in a simple rhyme

    Wow!
    Hey! Hey! Hey!

    Well, ain't life grand when ya finally hit it?
    I'm always a sucker for a real good time
    Woke up in life, found I almost missed it
    Ain't I glad that love is blind?

    But I was young an' I was, far too crazy
    Been that way for a long, long time
    Needed a girl but I was just too lazy
    Now that I've found you

    Ya think ya got the interest?
    Come on an' take the time
    I'm gonna be, yours in a simple...

    Rhyme. Rhyme
    N' she made the mountains sing
    Birds against an icy sky
    And I heard bells ringin'
    I think I heard an angel sigh

    And she said, "There'll be times. There will be times."

    (Ah ah) You're gonna hear the angels singin'
    (Ah ah) You're gonna hear the angels sing, they'll say
    (Ah ah. Ah ah. Ah ah ah)
    Ow!

    (Guitar Solo)

    Oh!
    Oh, yeah!
    Ha! Ah! Yeah

    Ya think ya got the interest
    Come on an' take the time
    I'm gonna be yours in a simple...

    Rhyme. Rhyme. Rhyme

    I've always thought the line was "you think you got the address" too. Hard to be definitive about Daves lyrics when even he admits that he doesn't remember what the exact lyrics were to many classic VH songs. That brings up a good point. Is there some lyrical bible out there somewhere that has Daves blessing? I mean, how do we really know for sure about some of these lyrics???

    I figured since those lyrics were on van-halen.com that they were the official lyrics, I don't know, let's ask Dave

    I wonder about the DLR era lyrics at Brad's site. I was looking at "Could This Be Magic?" and I always thought the line was "Could this turn tragic? You know that magic all pent up", but now I'll have to relisten. And "In A Simple Rhyme", I always thought it was "interest", but I thought the second line was "My love life was a cryin' disgrace". Didn't anybody write things down back then?
