(Words by Van Halen)

Are you ever so silent, when she wanted to talk?
Or couldn't keep quiet, when she needed a hug
Come on too strong, when a little's too much
How many, how many, say I

Go on and say yes, and really mean no
Would you rather guess, when you just don't know
And then say I love you, but aren't willing to show
How many, how many, say I
How many, how many, say I

How many say I, how many say I
How many say I, how many say I

Say live and let live, so quick to judge
Slow to forgive, when you're holding a grudge
Don't always believe, all you need is love
How many, how many, say I
How many, how many, say I
How many, how many, say I

How many say I, how many say I
How many say I, how many say I
How many say I, how many say I
How many say I, how many say I

(String Solo)

Have you ever looked down when the homeless walked by?
Or changed the channel when you saw a hungry child?
Know something to be true, then deny it
How many, how many, say I
How many, how many, say I
How many, how many, say I

How many say I, how many say I
How many say I, how many say I
How many say I, how many say I
How many say I, how many say I
