"Runnin' With The Devil" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
I live my life like there's no tomorrow
And all I've got I had to steal
Least I don't need to beg or borrow
Yes, I'm living at a pace that kills
Runnin' with the devil
Runnin' with the devil
I'll tell y'all about it
I found the simple life ain't so simple
When I jumped out on that road
I got no love, no love you'd call real
Ain't got nobody waiting at home
Runnin' with the devil
God damn it lady, you know I ain't lying to ya
I'm wanna tell you one time
Aah-yeah
Running with the devil
Yes I am
Yeah

Woo
Woo

You know I, I found the simple life, weren't so simple, no
When I jumped out on that road
Got no love, no love you'd call real
Got nobody waiting at home
Runnin' with the devil
Runnin' with the devil
Runnin' with the devil
Runnin' with the devil

    General CommentIf I recall correctly, in an interview in 1978, Dave said that he wrote this song about his early morning workouts, mainly jogging, that he did with Satan. He and Satan met at the Whiskey--the Devil was trying to see behind Eddie's back to figure out how he did the tapping, and Dave got pissed that he was leaning on the stage, and had him removed until after the set. Anyway, after the set, he and Dave were hitting on the same blond and discovered that they have similar tastes, and actually hit it off as friends. So, there you have it, jogging with SAtan.
