    Default She's the Woman - Official Thread



    Decided to take a stab at "She's the Woman" lyrics from the higher quality YouTube clip from "Cafe Wha?". A lot of unintelligible stuff, but worth a shot:


    I'll be in your bed
    I'm gonna ?? and love her
    I'm gonna be your knight in shining pickup truck
    Iím gonna ??? for my summer home
    And get the party started
    Yeah looking like the city ? or other apartment
    She gotta doorbell sign that said, "Bring it! But don't ring it!"

    She's The Woman (sing it Wolf!)
    She's The Woman Yeah! Yeah!
    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman

    ??? my pimp
    You know she can be cruel
    She thinks yeah doing business with me honey
    What does that make you?
    ??? ?
    Youíre a nervous wreck
    Youíre ?? at your woman's ?????? to form around your neck
    ???? way we sing it

    She's The Woman! Woah!
    She's The Woman !Yeah! Yeah!
    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman

    (guitar solo)

    She wanted something to regret
    Tomorrow morning
    Itís a perfectly ?? was a little bit boring
    Yeah dreams come true!
    Well that remains to be seen
    By the time your ?? youíre under me

    She got a doorbell sign that said, "Bring it! But donít ring it!Ē

    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman. Woah!
    She's The Woman
    Wolfgang did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Pretty sure the second line is "I'm gonna mad love her". I think the first line of the second stanza is "Fate is my pimp". I've seen others comment that it was "Favors my pimp", but considering the next line is "you know she can be cruel", "fate" would be a more natural reading.

    I've watched the video a thousand times and watched Dave's mouth. I'm pretty sure the second line is 'Im gonna mouth off'. And the other is either 'She's my pimp' or 'there's my pimp'. We had a big discussion on this in the other She's the Woman thread and got pretty far with the lyrics.
    Honey, baby, my heart's aflame. I'm all f'd up, and you to blame.

    Here's what we came up with in the other thread. The '**' next to a line are the ones that are really difficult to make out. I've been looping just those sections over and over and can only make out some words.


    Woo!!!
    Yeah! Yeah!
    Ohh!!!
    Woo!!!

    I'll be in your bed.
    I'm gonna mouth off.
    I'm gonna be your knight in shining pickup truck.
    I'm gonna listen in for my song on hold, get the party started. **
    Yeah, you're looking like the city towed our other apartment.
    She gotta doorbell sign that said, "Bring it! Don't ring it!"


    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman
    Yeah! Yeah!
    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman

    There's my pimp.
    Ya know, she can be cruel.
    She says, 'ya doing business with me honey, what does that make you?'
    I'm better than the quick drug. You're a nervous wreck?
    Your angry woman's fourteen points of thunder, formed around your neck. **
    ??? baby??? the way we sing it. **

    She's The Woman
    Woah! Woah!
    She's The Woman
    Yeah! Yeah!
    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman
    Wow!

    Solo

    She wanted something to wear, tomorrow morning.
    Here's to hoping a menage a trois is a little conforming.
    Yeah, dreams come true!
    But it remains to be seen.
    But a dirty man..??..no hunk of meat. **
    She gotta doorbell sign that said, "Bring it! But don't ring it!"


    She's The Woman
    Yeah! Yeah!
    She's The Woman
    Woah!

    Glad to see this brought up again and I welcome any input on the lyrics that our group effort came up with in that other thread.

    A few differences in my current hearing:


    Woo!!!
    Yeah! Yeah!
    Ohh!!!
    Woo!!!

    I'll be in your bed.
    I'm gonna mouth off.
    I'm gonna be your knight in shining pickup truck.
    I'm gonna listen in for my song on hold, get the party started.
    Yeah, you're looking like the city towed our older apartment.
    She gotta doorbell sign that said, "Bring it! Don't ring it!"


    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman
    Yeah! Yeah!
    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman

    There's my pimp.
    Yo, she can be cool.
    She thinks ya doing business with me honey, what does that make you?
    I'm better than the quick drug. You're nervous, right?
    Your angry woman's fourteen points of thunder formed around your neck.
    ??? baby??? the way we sing it.

    She's The Woman
    Woah! Woah!
    She's The Woman
    Yeah! Yeah!
    She's The Woman
    She's The Woman
    Wow!

    Solo

    She wanted something to regret, tomorrow morning.
    Here's to hoping the menage a trois was a little preforming.
    Yeah, dreams come true!
    But it remains to be seen.
    By the tiny man's only ????? hunk of me.
    She gotta doorbell sign that said, "Bring it! But don't ring it!"


    She's The Woman
    Yeah! Yeah!
    She's The Woman
    Woah!
    She's The Woman

    Amendment: Yo, she can be cool -> cruel.

    The second verse definitely starts with:

    "Fate is my pimp
    Yeah, well she can be cruel"

    Also, I think the following line isn't
    "She thinks ya doing business with me honey, what does that make you?

    but instead is:

    "She leaves ya doing business with me honey, what does that make you?"
    Ain't no school like the old school...

    Ok kids, now that we heard the first line on the studio version of 2012's She's A Woman, what is Dave saying?

    No idea, but it sounds different than the Cafe Wha? clip.

    The first lyric is clearly "A little low on cash..."
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddieís prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    I was really diggin' the lyrics from Cafe Wha?, even if we didn't understand half of them. I'm hoping Dave kept some of them. It would be weird if we end up with 3 different version of this song!
