"Dirty Movies" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
Now who's that babe with the fabulous shadow?
It's only one scene, but to me it don't matter
Her movies get down like you won't find in my hometown
They won't believe it when they see what they're seein'

Go see baby now!
Pictures on the silver screen
Greatest thing you've ever seen
Now her name is up in lights

Everything turns out all right
Daddy's little sweetie after some damn rainbow
Got the big deal in the back of a limo
Now showbiz is so thrillin', the camera rolls she's willin'

They won't believe it when they see what they're seein'
Go see baby now!
Hey, you remember when that girl was prom queen?
Oh wow! Take it off! Take it all off!

Pictures on the silver screen
Greatest thing you've ever seen
Now her name is up in lights
Everything turns out all right

Now they believe it, now that they've seen it
Go see baby now!
Pictures on the silver screen
Greatest thing you've ever seen

Now my baby's up in lights
Everything turns out all right
Lights! Camera! Action!

    General CommentHey, what's this song about? I know it's in David Lee Roth's book Crazy from the Heat, but I don't think my folks would let me read that!

    General CommentI never read the book. I felt it is about a hischool girl he knew who went on to be a porn star.

    General CommentDo you seriously have to ask about the meaning? It's not like it's subtle, with the shouts of "Take it off!"

    General CommentThe meaning is pretty obvious "Dirty Movies" AKA Porn. "Hey, you remember when that girl was prom queen". How much more obvious does it get. Anyway, killer beggining and the beat throughout the song kicks.
