    What is the best flow of lyrics in a Van Halen tune?

    My vote is the following:

    "Well my baby's on the corner and she's looking so fine, put one and one together and it blows my mind, a man needs love to live, I'm the living proof, catch that smile and I hit the roof!"

    That is the BEST. Love the way that flows!
    So This is Love? kicks ass.

    How about everyone else?

    DLR has way way too many to count and I particularly like the lyrics to the verses "5150" for Hagar.

    I gotta go with this though if I was forced to choose...

    "We was broke and hungry and a summer dayyyy...
    sent the sheriff down to try and drive us awayyyy...
    We was sitting ducks for the pol-eece mannn... they found a dirty faced kid in a garbage cannn... Ha"

    You've mentioned some good ones already but the lyrics to 'Top Jimmy' come to mind.

    Anybody ever sing 'Big Fat Money' without getting tongue-twisted? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I was just thinking BFM for this, Raldo. It flows well, whether you like the lyrics or not.

    There's really only one verse I can get through without screwing up.

    Too much temptation, 'nuff to kill a generation
    Space station, starvation, premature ejaculation
    This ain't groovy, this ain't funky
    It's on my back but it ain't my monkey, no!
    "Just once I'd like to do the right thing and not get punished for it."

    Some friends of mine, just the other night
    Went to hear this cool cat blow
    They said he sang so good that the roof fell in
    And he didn't even stop the show
    They don't remember the place,
    But they remember the face,
    And now everybody wanna go. Woo!

    Top Jimmy cooks!
    Top Jimmy swings!
    He's got the look! Woo!
    Top Jimmy, he's the king!

    Jimmy on the television
    Famous people on there with him
    Jimmy on the news at five!
    Jimmy on the radio and even on the video
    The baddest cat alive!

    Drivin' all the women crazy
    All they want is Jimmy baby
    Love it when he rolls his eyes!

    Don't forget this often over-looked gem:

    Looks just like an angel, but he just talkin' trash
    You make conversation, but she's listening to your cash
    Takers need a giver, this much we understand
    All I wanna give you woman. . .
    Is the best part of a man, yeah
