Van Halen – Inside lyrics

(Words by Van Halen)

(All band members rambling together)

Man, what kinda crap is this?
I don't know. I, I thought it was really gonna be different this time.
(It is) Ah, yeah.
(Ha-ha-ha!) Yeh-hey
I don't know man. We're dyin', we're dyin'
Hey, you got a point there (This is fat!)
You've actually got three points there. Ah-ha! (Yep!) Whaaeeee!
Oh yeah, hey. What they, where he'd get that clothes?
Outta your closet (Ha-ha-ha!)
Yeah. You mean, you mean my wife's closet
No, J. C. Penny man. J. C. Penny

That's what's comin' down on the inside
Don't let this get around to the outside

Now listen here. It's not what you are, ya see, it's how ya dress
'Cuz that's one thing I learned from these guys, I must confess
Now me look, I got this job not just bein' myself, huh!
I went out I bought some brand new shoes
Now I walk like someone else, hey!

Maybe I'm crazy or just too high
But all this here can't be worth my piece of the pie

Sittin' around just gettin' high
Temporarily pacified!
I guess less is more, ha ha

Somethin' special, gimme someone new
Some brand new groove to sink my teeth into

Sittin' around just gettin' high
Temporarily pacified!

(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Don't touch me there, okay? Just don't do that, okay?)
(Oh, why?)
(Just pay my accountant)

That's what's come down on the inside
(I don't know. I might be able to make it through. What the hay?)
Don't let this get around to the outside. Please, please, please

This ain't no party, this ain't no show
So don't you try to put no m-m-m-m-m-m-mojo
(That's what's comin' down) On my butt, anyway. Heh heh


(Guitar Solo)

(Are you alright?)
That's what's comin' down
(I, I, I, I don't feel so good. I'm serious man. I don't, I don't feel too good)
On the inside
(Hey, let's blow it out here now man, alright?)
Don't let this get around, to the outside
(Eddie! Can't you read lips?) (Hey, hey, hey)
(I came into this thing with an open mind)
(Mike! Mike! What was that shit you gave me last night?)
That's what's comin' down
(Ah, man)(Ha, ha-ha!)
On the inside
(Get out! Operator calling. Get out! Operator)
Don't let this get around, to the outside
(Ah, ha-ha!)
That's what's comin' down
(okay)(Hello? Hello?)
On the inside
(This is the operator)
(Hey Sammy, I found a hat and a pair of shoes. Are they yours?)
Don't let this get around, to the outside
That's what's comin' down
On the inside
Don't let this get around (Hey! Somebody get me a cheeseburger!)
To the outside
(Hey, is Greg back yet?)
(Alimony! Alimony! Alimony! Alimony! Alimony! Alimony!)
(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!) That's what's comin' down
On the inside
Don't let this get around
(Ahh! Ahhhhh!)
(Yeow! Yeah!)
To the outside
