    Default Lyrics to Down the Drain

    Again... From the first go around.. Feel free to add to it!

    Down the Drain:

    Some time you gotta roll with it up ma
    Some things are better left in the closet
    Some things just laying on the table
    Some time gotta stop gotta pause it. Yeah. Yeah.

    Well, you use to wake me up for breakfast
    Force feed me with a silver spoon
    Even do me when I’m dirty
    Well let it roll to waveman’s doom.
    Oh yeah, mama

    Yeah but, all that’s changed
    Cause it’s all down the drain! Yeah!

    Oh, love came wind like lightening
    Strong enough to feel the heat
    Thug life in the night will wonder
    What the wings are under my feat, but…

    All that’s changed
    My whole worlds been changing
    It’s a long and dirty shame
    Cause it’s all down the drain!

    Oh I need love, first thing in the morning
    I need love baby, first thing in the evening
    I need love, oh first thing in the morning
    I need love love love! Oh oh gimme!

    [Guitar solo]

    Baby, all that’s changed!
    My whole worlds been changing!
    It’s a long down dirty shame!
    Cause it’s all down the drain!

    Down the drain! Down the drain!
    Yeah, yeah, yeah!
    Come on, come on, come on
    Get it, get it, get it
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Oh baby I need love
    First thing in the morning
    I need love, last thing in the evening
    But it’s all down the drain! Yeaaaaah!

    Thats pretty good man. I made a few changes and they are in bold. Pretty sure they are right. The 3rd verse section is tough. What you put sounds close. I think it may be different. I tried to decipher it too, makes no sense but it's kinda fun to try. lol Thanks and peace.

    And itís a low down dirty shame
    Cause itís all down the drain!

    Oh I need love, first thing in the morning
    I need love baby, first thing in the evening
    I need love, oh first thing in the morning
    I need love love love! Oh oh gimme!

    i like half the lyrics and the other half are crap. He had something going with the first verse and the chorus but then he starts in with the whole "she used to wake me up for breakfast...let it roll til way past noon." The parts about sex are pretty cheesy...i wish he would have stuck with a different train of thought but overall, it's a good song.

    Man, maybe it's because of my age, but something about 60-year-old guys writing entire songs about sex just weirds me out.

    You'll feel that way until you're old yourself. Your body may change but your mind doesn't!

    Default Well, it seems to be (in part) about VH to me...

    Some time you gotta roll with it upfront (confronting the VH situation)
    Some things are better left in the closet (EVH addiction issues)
    Some things just lay it on the table (Hagar perspective)
    Some time gotta stop gotta pause it. Yeah. Yeah. (Time to quit)

    Well, She used to wake me up for breakfast (Used to be in VH)
    Force feed me with a silver spoon (Forcing Wolfie on everyone)

    Am I reaching here? Maybe.
    Peace on Earth, Peace on you

    I'm not crazy about listening to songs with 18 year old guys singing about sex so I choose to listen to very little music written by 18 year old guys, as talented as Chris Brown may be...

    yeah, i think i know who you are
    i love you,
    i wanna be with you
    but that can't happen with him in yo life

    I just can't believe your still with him
    'cause its all to him that were not together
    and just because you wont break it
    i can't be with you
    just 'cause he's so rude
    and beats you up
    don't mean you shouldn't stand up for yoself

    I know that i can't be with you
    i know that its all to do with him
    but i just wanna let you know
    that i love you
    and im so happy we get to spend time together
    but i know i still can't be with you

    i don't think he gets it
    i dont think he understands
    but i know what
    you really want, woah
    and just 'cause he can't think
    don't mean you need to make
    his decisions

    I know that i can't be with you
    i know that its all to do with him
    but i just wanna let you know
    that i love you
    and im so happy we get to spend time together
    but i know i still can't be with you

    I know what it feels like
    we have all been there before
    but this time its dfifferent
    this time
    it's between us two
    and him

    I know that i can't be with you
    i know that its all to do with him
    but i just wanna let you know
    that i love you
    and im so happy we get to spend time together
    but i know i still can't be with you

    umm...just a little...maybe

    Tell you what though...the first verse is really cool. I like the way the words work with the melody and the music. I really wish he would have stayed away from the juvenile up for breakfast bit after that though. The "force feed me with a silver spoon" is cool but he completely loses me with "Even do me when Iím dirty, We'd let it roll till way past noon."

    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."
