    Default VH lyric meanings

    There are many Van Halen lyrics that are open to interpretation -- minus "Up for Breakfast," "Amsterdam," and "Drop Dead Legs," to name three.

    Today I was watching a YouTube video of Van Halen's "A Different Kind of Truth" tour, and saw a performance of "Women In Love." I began thinking, "What is he singing about..?"

    Hypothesis: is "Women In Love..." about David Lee Roth, or some protagonist, attempting to have sex with a lesbian named "Marge" who's "breakin' his heart?"

    Evidence:

    "But honey/
    If you're needin' a woman/
    Just as bad as me/
    You oughta be goin'."

    "Honey leave me alone
    Or baby, stay the night.
    Women in love/
    Make up your mind."

    "Seems like lovin' you/
    Is just a crazy dream/
    But do as you feel..."

    Does anyone have a read on this song's lyrics..? I have questions about other VH songs' lyrics too.

    I get confused with Dave's lyrics at times so I just sing them and not worry about the meaning.

    It's typical Dave humor and maybe based on some real life experience he had.

    LOL!!

    Can anyone tell me about the lyrics for "Humans Being?"

    Doesn't seem like the typical Sammy message -- much more nihilistic.
