Dirty Water Dog Lyrics

by Van Halen

No candidate would I support
His platform could I endorse
Another accomplice slingin' dirt
Campaign promises fallin' short

I don't belong to any race
Pledge allegiance to a place
No border line in the sand I'd trace
I'm just a sucker for a pretty face

Uncomfortable in the realm of the political
Position's always been a little left of cynical
I'm fundamentally for the individual
Preoccupied purely with the physical

When heavy is the weight of the world
(And the river runs a little too deep)
Like a hound dog chasin' a bird
Sometimes a certain Tom's gotta peep
I'm a peek a boy, lookin' at girls
And I think I like
I think, I like, I like what I see

I don't wanna find religion
Or another mans opinion
I can't choose what's not my decision
When there's only one under the sun

There's no need to be denied
Chew before swallowin' pride
I want to live so let me die
Oh by the way, what's your sign?

Can't comprehend the meanin' of the metaphysical
I'd rather leave that to your so called intellectual
But what I do know, I know feels only natural
I'm just a red blooded heterosexual

When heavy is the weight of the world
(And the river runs a little too deep)
And like a dirty water doggin' a bird
Sometimes a certain Tom's, he gotta peep
I'm a peek a boy, lookin' at girls
And I think I like
I think, I like, I like what I see

When heavy is the weight of the world
(And the river runs a little too deep)
[incomprehensible] dirty water doggin' a bird
Sometimes a certain Tom's, he gotta peep
I'm a peek a boy, lookin' at girls
And I think I like
Like a hound dog, chasin' a bird
And I think, I like
A dirty water dog
And I think I like
I think, I like, I like what I see
