    Glad you included the lyric from "Secrets". One of my faves.

    Cool list. "Use my hand--I won't look," "My karma just ran over your dogma," and all of "She's the Woman" would make my list. Always been fond of "Ah-oh! Hey you..." too.

    For non-VH songs I'd say "Lose the Dress (Keep the Shoes)" and most of the songs on YFLM.

    I've always liked the lyrics from The Trouble With Never:

    Mistakes make people."
    Isn't that what people say?

    Let's un-plan the moment,
    dance the night away.

    Selective amnesia
    is only a heartbeat away.

    Some goes to women, some goes to Jesus...
    That I'm absolutely certain that's alright.
    But it takes me least half way to the label
    For I can even make it through the night...

    Seems like forty days and forty nights
    Since someone used my first name
    Including you

    I live my life like there's no tomorrow
    And all I've got I had to steal
    Least I don't need to beg or borrow
    Yes, I'm living at a pace that kills

    And then they voted you
    Least likely to succeed
    I had to tell them baby you were armed with
    All you'd need


    Well, they say it's kinda fright'nin' how this younger generation swings.
    You know, it's more than just some new sensation.
    Well, the kid is into losin' sleep and he don't come home for half the week.
    You know, it's more than just an aggravation.

    Wanna see my I.D.? Try to clip my wings!
    Don't have to show you proof of anything.
    I know the law friend.
    At the 'leventh hour. I'm goin' back outside.
    Give it a try.
    I'm your last loose end.

    And we don't worry 'bout tomorrow
    Cause we're sick of these four walls
    Now what'd ya think is nothing
    Might be something after all
    Now you know this ain't no through street
    The end is dead ahead
    The poor folks play for keeps down here
    They're the living dead

    Like the ancient immortals said
    Don't want 'em to get your goat
    Don't show 'em where it's hid
    But that's just what I did

    My karma just ran over your dogma

    You know you're semi-good lookin', and on the streets again
    Oh yeah you think you're really cookin' baby, you better find yourself a friend
    My friend, ain't talkin' 'bout love

    Nice list EAS, well done.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!

    Default David Lee Roth's Ten Greatest Song Lyrics

    "Why behave in public if you're living on a playground?"
    Probably my favorite lyric he ever wrote.
    I'm just here.

    Hotty Toddy, gosh almighty,
    Who the hell are we? Hey!

    Flim flam, bim bam,
    Ole Miss, by damn!

    Some days you're the dog, some days you're the hydrant.

    How many roads must a man walk down before he admits he's lost?

    What you need is on the menu and you'll get it tonight, buddy you got women on your mind.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
