You make me weep and want to die Just when you said we'd try Lovin', touchin', squeezin' each other When I'm alone all by myself You're out with someone else Lovin', touchin', squeezin' each other You're tearin' me apart Every day, every day You're tearin' me apart Oh what can I say? You're tearin' me apart
It won't be long, yes, till you're alone When your lover, oh, he hasn't come home 'Cause he's lovin' who he's touchin', he's squeezin' another
He's tearin' you apart Ooh, every day, every day He's tearin' you apart Oh girl what can you say? 'Cause he's lovin', touchin' another Now it's your turn, girl, to cry
Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na Na na na na na na Na na na na na

Marsha Bailey from TorontoActually....the opening to this song is reminiscent of The Stripper, adding another layer to Steve's revenge song. And yes, the na na na na na is straight out of the schoolyard.
Patrick Omalley from BostonI'm amazed no one has mentioned this. The "na na" at the end isn't just a chant. It's like a little kid saying "na na, na na na", with that specific cadence, over and over.
Bryan from Atlanta, GaI'm surprised no one has commented on how the melody and song structure was lifted from Sam Cooke's "Nothing Can Change This Love" from 1962.
Pat from Saint Paul, MnOfficially 154 "na"s at the end of the song. (22 per verse x 7 repeats)
Shawn from MarylandIf you read the interview with the co-writer of "Oh, Sherry", and this factoid, you get the realization that Steve Perry is not a good guy to be in a relationship with. Think about it for a minute. Usually, women just don't get out of their "side bae's" car, in front of her boyfriend's apartment, and plant a long loving kiss goodbye...unless there's a good reason for it.

Bob Minelli from Milwaukee, WiSteve Perry and that awesome voice and amazing hair! Long live Journey!
Michael from Austin, TxThis song is why I became a Journey fan!
James from Yucaipa, CaGreat song from 1979. Should of been a #1 hit. 9/11/10
Joshua from La Crosse, WiA nice bluesy tune... one of those songs that makes you wish Journey had done an "Unplugged" album. This would have sounded great as an acoustic number.
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
