"In A Simple Rhyme" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
Well, back in the past when I was treated so coldly
My love life was a darn disgrace
Needed someone to love and hold me
That's one of the reasons that I was outta place

So, this is love, well, she finally kissed me
Had me all worked up inside
I wanted love but Cupid missed me
She, up and left and I almost died

But I was young and I was far from lonely
I been that way for a long, long year
Needed a girl to call my one and only
Is that you?

You think you got the interest
Come on and take the time
'Cause you know, I wanna be
Yours in a simple rhyme

Wo, up, up, up
Well, ain't life grand when ya finally hit it?
I'm always a sucker for a real good time
Woke up in life, found I almost missed it
Ain't I glad that love is blind

But I was young and I was far too crazy
Been that way for a long, long time
Needed a girl but I was just too lazy
Now that I've found you

You think you got the interest
Come on and take the time
I'm gonna be yours in a simple rhyme, rhyme

And she made the mountains sing
Birds against an icy sky
And I heard bells ringing
I think I heard an Angel sigh

She said, there'll be times
There will be times
You're gonna hear the angels singing
You're gonna hear the angels sing, they'll say
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Wo
Oh yeah, ah, wo

You think you got the interest
Come on and take the time
I'm gonna be yours in a simple rhyme, rhyme, rhyme

    General CommentNo ones' commented on this one yet??? This song's beautiful! One of a small handful of Roth era Van Halen songs not about partying, women, sex, etc. Very powerful song.

    General CommentYeah, I agree. I love the fact that the music rocks, but the lyrics are, well, sentimental/nice/happy. I love this song, top 10 VH songs ever.

    General CommentI remember watching them play this live at my high school in 1975 (La Canada). None of us had any idea how big this band would become.
