  • She was seaside sittin', just a smokin' and a drinkin' on ringside,
    On top of the world, oh, yeah
    She had her drink in her hand she had her toes in the sand and whoa,
    What a beautiful girl, ah, yeah
    What a sweet talkin' honey with a little bit of money can turn your head around
    Creatures from the sea with the look to me like she'd like to fool around
    What a snappy little mammy gonna keep her pappy happy
    And accompany me to the ends of the earth, ah, yeah that't what I said

    Here I am, ain't no man of the world, no
    All I need is a beautiful girl
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls
    Well, I'm a bum in the sun and I'm having fun
    And I know you know I got no special plans (special plans)
    All the bills are paid I got it made in the shade
    And all I nee, nee, need is the woman
    What a sweet talkin' honey with a little bit of money can turn your head around
    Creatures from the sea with the looks to me like she'd like to fool around
    Here I am, ain't no man of the world, no
    All I need is a beautiful girl
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (woo come this way)

    Sit down right here
    Oh, la la
    Think I've got it now

    Now, I'm a seaside sittin', just a smokin' and a drinkin'
    I'm ringside, on top of the world (top of the world)
    I got a drink in my hand I got my toes in the sand
    All I need is a beautiful girl (beautiful girl)
    Here I am, ain't no man of the world, no
    All I need is a beautiful girl
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (I ain't lyin' to you nothin' else I need)
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls sit yourself on down
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (come here baby, come here)
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (what's your name, honey?)
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (what's your hey, hey, where you goin'?

    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (hey, hey wait a minute, wait a min oh)
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (I love'em I need 'em)
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (can't do without 'em, no)
    Ah, yeah beautiful girls (woo, woo)

  • John from Wyandotte, MiShmitts Gay....what a memory you guys have. Lmao!
  • Jim from Indio, Ca"a snappy little mammy, gonna keep her pappy happy" BEST. LYRIC. EVER!
  • Chris Labenne from Niles, OhThis is my favorite Van Halen song. Any hard rock band that can play a triplet-feel guitar riff, piccolo bass fills, and absolutely flawless 3-part vocal harmonies is perfect for me. Van Halen is Gawd.
  • Jeff from Austin, Txshmitts gay rules
  • Jim from Anycity, FlOne of their most Vocally Harmonic songs.
  • Robb from Hamburg, NyYeah, except for he (Anthony) sings the backing vocals in all the songs, which in my opinion are the key ingredient to Van Halen
  • Kent Lyle from Palo Alto, CaMichael Anthony's bass fills before each verse probably served as his most direct contribution to a Van Halen song, unless I am missing something.
  • Rob from Santa Monica, CaUsed in a Saturday Night Live skit as the music for a parody ad for "Schmidt's Gay Beer".
  • Greg from Manchester, TnOriginally "Bring on the Girls" in early demos.
