"Hot for Teacher" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
Oh wow, man
Wait a second man Whaddaya think the teacher's gonna look like this year? (my butt, man)
Oh yeah T-T-Teacher stop that screaming, teacher don't you see?
Don't want to be no uptown fool
Maybe I should go to hell, but I'm doin' well,
Teacher needs to see me after school

I think of all the education that I missed
But then my homework was never quite like this
Ow got it bad, got it bad, got it bad,
I'm hot for teacher
I got it bad, so bad,
I'm hot for teacher

Hey, I heard you missed us, we're back
I brought my pencil
Gimme something to write on, man
Uh uh, I heard about your lessons, but lessons are so cold
I know about this school
Little girl from Cherry Lane, how did you get so bold?
How did you know that golden rule?

I think of all the education that I missed
But then my homework was never quite like this
Ow got it bad, got it bad, got it bad,
I'm hot for teacher
I got it bad, so bad,
I'm hot for teacher, whoa

Oh man, I think the clock is slow
I don't feel tardy
Class dismissed

Oh, yeah
I've got it bad, got it bad, got it bad
I'm hot for teacher

Oh, yes I'm hot
Oh my God

    General CommentThere was this teacher at my high school that a lot of boys liked. she got fired for "inappropriate conduct" with teenage boys and now 8 years later she just got arrested for having sex with a 10 year old boy. Now every time I hear this song I think of her and feel kinda queasy thinking of how "hot for teacher" can go so horribly wrong.

    General CommentI've heard that the drums in the beginning were mic'ed and mixed to sound like the enging of a top-fuel funny car. I guess it does kinda sound like one....

    Kick ass song, and one of the all time classic videos. What male in his 30's doesn't remember that teacher ripping off her shirt and dancing on the desk? Great stuff.

    General CommentEvery time I play this song, I'm reminded of my senior year in high school and my Spanish teacher. She was 30, and she had the most incredible ass on the face of this planet!! I think I'll look her up...

    General CommentWait...

    I read somewhere that this song was actually inspired by one of the band member's high school teacher. Is this true? If so...was it David's, Eddie's, Alex's, or Michael's?

    Thanks :)

    General CommentIt's a fantasy that the high school guys joke around about. Probably a normal every day event and nothing exceedingly twisted about it. The song is not meant to be about an actual incident of a teacher and high-school student having sex. I do agree with Pippin on what the "pencil" is meant to be, but it's just a boy's perverted joke or thought.
