Album: Women And Children First (1980)
  • You can't get romantic on a subway line

    But everybody wants some
    I want some too
    Everybody wants some
    Baby, how 'bout you?

    Yeah, I've seen the people that are lookin' for a moonbeam
    Yeah, ya spent a lot ya got lost in the jet-stream
    But everybody wants some
    I want some too
    Everybody wants some
    How 'bout you?

    Oh yeah, uh yeah, yeah, yeah

  • Ignacio M from NjI still can't believe that Eddie kicked out Michael Anthony for his son
  • Sean from Cranston, RiWhen the band members say, "Everybody wants some" the second time in the last chorus, it sounds like there is someone saying, "Gimmie" right when the lyric, "Wants" is sung.
  • Rob from Duluth, GaDave may be an ass, but Eddie is a pompous ass. Thinks he's God's gift to music. He and Nuno Bettencourt make a good pair - kinda ironic that Cherone ended up singing for them - musta been because he was already used to taking that kind of abuse. Dave's downfall may well have been of his own making, but what about Hagar ... and Cherone ... and Anthony?
  • Mark from Hayward, CaHey Duffy, The answer is SEX!
    LOL Bozon, if you couldn't figure that out then, well.....
    They tried to get back together but Dave is still an ass. That's why they broke up to begin with! Dave was the only one not married and still acting like he was 17. Eddie, Alex and Michael all grew up. Dave didn't. End of story.
  • Dale from Ky, Kyi saw that movie better off dead with john husak however you spaell his name, and that movie got me interested in van halen
  • Dale from Ky, Kydid you know that alex van halen used to play guitar and eddie van halen played the drums and later onin there life they switched
  • Magnus from Mountville, PaO.k. I just read the lyrics for the first time in my life. When DLR is supposedly talking with or to the chick in the studio, I pretty sure he says "woo, where'd ya get that SHIRT, OH- YEAH
    I don't think it's _hit.
  • Duffy from Yakima, AlI could never understand what this song was about.Everybody wants some? Want what...a taxi ride? A good job? I just don't get it but I love the song.Why don't they get back together?
  • Tom from June Lake, CtI know for a FACT the Eddy didnt use the technique you are talking about. I have seen him perform this a dozen times. The board you are refering to is actually something he didnt start till 1984 tour. It is used during his spotlight solo/eruption. The only thing he realy does is use the whammy bar/Floyd Rose.
  • Greg from Manchester, TnThis song was in the movie "Better Off Dead". The scene featured a claymation "Eddie Van Hamburger" complete with striped guitar.
