  • Tattoo, tattoo

    I got Elvis on my elbow
    When I flex, Elvis talks
    I got hula girls on the back of my leg
    And she hulas when I walk

    Screaching cherry red
    Screamin' electric green
    Purple mountain's majesty
    Really talk to me Talk to me, babe

    Swap meet Sally, tramp stamp Kat
    Mousewife to momshell in the time it took to get that new tattoo
    Tattoo, tattoo

    (Tattoo, tattoo) Show me your dragon magic
    (Tattoo, tattoo) So autobiographic

    Best believe that needle won't hurt you
    Best to see these true colors, than to follow one of your false virtues

    Here's a secret to make you think
    Why is the crazy stuff we never say, poetry in ink?
    Speaking dayglow red
    Explode-o pink, purple mountain's majesty
    Show me you, I'll show you me

    Swap meet Sally
    Tramp stamp Kat
    Mousewife to momshell in the time it took to get that new tattoo
    Tattoo, tattoo

    (Tattoo, tattoo) Sexy dragon magic
    (Tattoo, tattoo) So very autobiographic
    (Tattoo, tattoo) Got a hold on me
    (Tattoo, tattoo) Put a spell on me

    Uncle Danny, had a coal tattoo
    He fought for the unions
    Some of us still do
    On my shoulder is the number
    Of the chapter he was in
    That number is forever
    Like the struggle here to win

    (Everybody!) Swap meet Sally
    Tramp stamp Kat
    Mousewife to momshell in the time it takes to get that new tattoo
    Tattoo, tattoo

    (Tattoo, tattoo) Sexy dragon magic
    (Tattoo, tattoo) So very autobiographic
    (Tattoo, tattoo) Got a hold on me
    (Tattoo, tattoo) Put a spell on me
    (Tattoo, tattoo) I'm in love with you
    (Tattoo, tattoo) Show me me, show me you
    (Tattoo, tattoo) Look at me, look at you (tattoo, tattoo) Writer/s: Alex Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Edward Van Halen, Wolfgang Van Halen
