We're The Greatest

Album: Authentic (2013)
  • Never jealous 'cause once we're gone
    Never leave here til it's done
    Be really the greatest of all
    Do it well but not enough

    Oh oh oh, mama we made it, aye
    Oh oh oh, we're finally the greatest of the world
    Oh oh oh, I told you we'd make it
    Oh oh oh, we're finally the greatest of the world

    Knock knock – who's there?
    The one, remember me?
    I'm lookin kinda different these days, don't you agree?
    Your boy's going big these days, didn't even see?
    The hell with the devil, there's no sympathy
    The wishes in my past are still ridin me
    All I can do is laugh as they lie to me
    You can't take my God from inside of me
    Crosses up, light up the sky with me
    I got a lot of crazy crazy on my mind
    Like what's the real reason that the pope resigned?
    I got Van Halen, I don't need a bassline
    I knew we can do it, it was just a matter of time
    Put the axels back on the street and break on the vine
    I came back to take back everything that was mine
    If I live to be 1-0-9 I'm still in my prime
    If I don't then I don't, I'll live on in your mind

    Oh oh oh, mama we made it, aye
    Oh oh oh, we're finally the greatest of the world
    Oh oh oh, I told you we'd make it
    Oh oh oh, we're finally the greatest of the world

    I'm on a hacksaw tour, Eddie got a Frankenstein aimed at your door
    Speakers under the stage, lift you off of the floor
    Why? This music is the end to the war
    We endure, cameras everywhere, everyone is keeping score
    Everybody talkin' bout what's up bout the tour
    The world is a steak, I'm a chew it up raw
    We're back in heavy metal like we above the law
    London, Japan, Germany and France
    Lisbon to New York, we're live up in Netherlands
    Jump up on some shoulders baby, you never dance
    You only live once, come on, here's your chance
    You could be reborn, half star, half man
    If you rise up and grab my hand
    If I live to be 1-0-9 I'm still in my prime
    If I don't then I don't, I'll live on in your mind

    Oh oh oh, mama we made it, aye
    Oh oh oh, we're finally the greatest of the world
    Oh oh oh, I told you we'd make it
    Oh oh oh, we're finally the greatest of the world

    Eddie Van Halen
    We are the greatest
    Rise up!

    Oh oh oh, mama we made it, aye
    Oh oh oh, we're finally the greatest of the world
    Oh oh oh, I told you we'd make it
    Oh oh oh, we're finally the greatest of the world Writer/s: PHILLIP R GONZALEZ, JAMES TODD SMITH, JEAN CLAUDE OLIVIER, SAMUEL BARNES, PHILLIP TAJ JACKSON, Edward van Halen, JUERGEN PLUTA, R Gonzales PHILLIP, SMITH JAMES TODD, Travis Barker
