(Verse Three)
Is this what you wanted?  Sammy Hagar?

Sammy Hagar?  Is this what you wanted, man?

Dave lost his hairline, but you lost your cool, buddy!
              D*
Can't drive 55? I'll never buy your lousy records again,

again  again  never again  never again  never again

never again  never again  never again  never again  never again

never again  never again  never again  never again  never again
