"Oh Pretty Woman" as written by and Roy/ Melson Joe Orbison....
Who!

Pretty woman, walking down the street!
Pretty woman, the kind I'd like to meet!
Pretty woman, I don't believe you, you must be true
No one can look as good as youuu

Mercy!!

Pretty woman, won't you pardon me??
Pretty woman, I couldn't help but see
Pretty woman. Oh you look lovely as you can be
Are you lonely just like me!!???

Ahhrrrr!

Pretty woman, stop awhile
Pretty woman, talk awhile
Pretty woman, give your smile to me

Pretty woman, yeah yeah yeah!!
Pretty woman, look my way!!
Pretty woman, say you'll stay with me!

Cause I need you,
I'll treat you right!
Come with me baby
Be mine tonight!

Pretty woman, don't walk on by!!
Pretty woman, don't make me cry!!
Pretty woman. Don't walk away-yay. Okay.

If that's the way it must be, okay
I guess I'll go on home, it's late
There'll be tomorrow night, but wait, what do I see?
Is she walking back to me?
Yeah she is walking back to me

Whoa, whoa, pretty woman

    General CommentI love this song so much. I think it's way better than Roy Orbison's version (then again, I'm a Van Halen fan).

    The meaning is: a dude goes out and tries to get with some hot ladies, unfortunately he thinks he's being an ass and they're ditching him so he's apologizing but then hope rises and they walk back towards him. ROCK ON

    General CommentVan Halen is a good grooup, they have some great songs, however, this cover is NOT one of them. Roy Orbison and this song are classics and should just not be covered

    General CommentThe song's not about a guy getting lots of pussy, it's about a guy after one particular lady who's playing hard to get - you dumb assed yanks know nothing - you'd call someone an alcoholic if you saw them drink one beer.
