  • I met her on a strip
    It was another lost weekend
    The band was too slick
    And the people were twisted

    So I asked her for a date
    She reluctantly agreed
    Then we went to my place
    And she never did leave

    She won't even miss me when she's gone
    And that's okay with me I'll cry later on

    It's been six months
    She hasn't shut up once
    I've tried to explain
    She's driving me insane

    She won't even miss me when she's gone
    And that's okay with me I'll cry later on

    Talk to ya later,don't want to hear it again tonight
    Talk to ya later,just save it for another guy
    Talk to ya later,don't want to hear it again tonight
    I'll just see you around

    Get out
    I'm telling you now
    Do you catch my drift
    What could be plainer than this

    Nothin' more to be said
    Write me a letter instead
    I don't mean to be cruel
    But I'm finished with you

    She won't even miss me when she's gone
    That's okay with me I'll cry later on

    Talk to ya later,don't want to hear it again tonight
    Talk to ya later,just save it for another guy
    Talk to ya later,don't want to hear it again tonight
    I'll just see you around Writer/s: DAVID W. FOSTER, JOHN WALDO WAYBILL, MICHAEL DAVID COTTEN, PRAIRIE PRINCE, RICK MARC ANDERSON, ROGER A. STEEN, STEVEN LEE LUKATHER, VINCE WELNICK

  • Chris from New HampshirrIt absolutely is Steve Lukather on Beat It. He played the guitar and bass. Eddie Van Halen played the solo but Luke played the riff and rhythm guitar parts.
  • Enrico Palazzo from NycWhile Steve Luthaker is an absolute monster guitar player, and his guitar work on this track alone is proof enough, that is most definitely NOT his guitar on Michael jackson's "Beat it". That guitar, originally credited to "Frankenstein" is, unmistakably, the work of Edward Van Halen.
  • Tony from San DiegoThat is the most interesting story I've ever heard about MTV in my life. So cool to hear how the song, deservedly So, became a hit.
  • Hockeydude from Boston MaFee/Lukather and Foster also wrote "She's a Beauty."
  • Robie from Houston, TxThis is the BEST SONG OF ALL TIME!!

    I have asked my wife and friends to play this at my funeral.

    Rock on
  • Mike from Boca Raton, FlIf you have never seen a TUBES show...GO!
