    In Girl Gone Bad (at around 2:58 into the song) what the heck does Dave sing after the guitar solo. I looked on VH's website and they don't even make an attempt at deciphering what he's singing. It sounds like:

    (oooh) These feet don't need my chains
    And I'm callin' my own

    I'm sure I'm way off. Phonetically though, it sorta sounds like that.

    I was surprised that V-H.com doesn't tell you what he's singing. They even tried to decipher that part of the lyrics in Everybody Wants Some:

    I took a mobile light, lookin' for a moonbeam. Ow!
    Yeah, ya stand in line ya got lost in a jet stream

    That sounds to be a little bit off. But at least they made an attempt. I was wondering if anybody had any input on the matter. What's your take on what Dave is singing in GGB?

    I have always wondered that myself and have been pissed that they did not post it at the 'official site'. Anyways, this is what I hear (for what it is worth).

    'These streets are (mean forsure??)'
    'I don't call them mine.'
    I'll keep it short and sweet. Family, religion, friendship. These <br />are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed in business. <br />When opportunity knocks, you don't want to be driving to a maternity <br />hospital or sitting in some phony-baloney church. Or synagogue.

    Your guess is as good as mine. "I don't call them my own" sounds like the second part...

    I think it's "Goddamn the Navy and all you lifers, I'm only gonna tell you one time!"

    Good question. I listened and the first line sounds either like:

    These streets gotta be...

    Or

    These streets call me...

    Pretty sure the 2nd line is "I don't call them my own". Would like to know...
