Pretty woman, walkin? down the street
Pretty woman the kind I'd like to meet
Pretty woman I don?t believe you, it must be true
No one could look as good as you---mercy

Pretty woman won?t you pardon me
Pretty woman I couldn?t help but see
Pretty woman oh you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me---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-ee
Cuz I need you, Need you tonight

Pretty woman don?t walk on by
Pretty woman don?t make me cry
Pretty woman don?t walk away, hey----OK
If that?s the way it must be---OK
I guess I?ll go on home, it?s late
There'll be tomorrow night, but wait
What do I see?
She's walkin? back to me
Oh, oh, 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.
