Jump

(5 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Figured I’d hop onto the cliche bandwagon with this clip. I expect it will be well worn segue music on the cable channels soon if not already.

I was never a Van Halen fan but I remember this tune well. Embarrassing as it is to admit, it was very popular back when I was in high school.

My money is on a grand betrayal before January 1st anyway.

Van Halen, Jump, 1984

Songwriters: DUPRI, JERMAINE/WEBSTER, GREGORY ALLEN/PIERCE, MARVIN R

Vocals: David Lee Roth

Guitar: Eddie Van Halen

Bass: Michael Anthony

Drums: Alex Van Halen

(Words by Van Halen)

To spare your ears I’ve posted the lyrics below-

I get up, and nothing gets me down.

You got it tough. I’ve seen the toughest around.

And I know, baby, just how you feel.

You’ve got to roll with the punches to get to what’s real

Oh, can’t you see me standing here?

I’ve got my back against the record machine

I ain’t the worst that you’ve seen.

Oh, can’t you see what I mean?

Ah, I might as well jump. Jump!

Might as well jump.

Go ahead, jump. Jump!

Go ahead, jump.

Aaa-ohh Hey you! Who said that?

Baby how you been?

You say you don’t know, you won’t know

Until you begin.

So can’t you see me standing here?

I’ve got my back against the record machine

I ain’t the worst that you’ve seen.

Oh, can’t you see what I mean?

I might as well jump. Jump!

Go ahead and jump.

Might as well jump. Jump!

Go ahead, jump. Jump!

(Guitar solo)

(Keyboard solo)

Might as well jump. Jump!

Go ahead and jump.

Get it and jump. Jump!

Go ahead and jump.

Jump!

Jump!

Jump!

Jump!
