David Lee Roth Cheatin’ Heart Cafe

[Tritt:] David, maybe you could help me without going back and listening to the lyrics

[Roth:] Sure, what’s up, Travis?

[Tritt:] You know what, do we wanna do everything in unison?

Or you wanna swap back and forth?

[Roth:] How ’bout I take the first two line

And you take the second two lines

And we just rock on from there?

She came from Dallas

That kid was aces

She dressed like Texas

Wide open spaces

He drove a pickup

And wore no underwear

She sang the words wrong

But he don’t care

They both were trouble

They took a chance

Now every snowflake pleads, “Not Guilty”

After the avalanche

Get it straight or honey, give it up

You got to get right back to where you started from

Are we gonna be late at the gate of dreams?

Destiny’s a complicated thing

I was leavin’

But I’m thinkin’ that I ougtha stay, yeah

I wanna chase you ‘cross the dance floor

At that old Cheatin’ Heart Café

She was atomic

Without a doubt

That cowgirl shirt she wore

Contained a lot of fallout

He was a cowboy, was what she wanted

The closest to a cow she’d been

Was eating at McDonald’s

Just liked barbed wire

Her attitude

Protected the turf

Without obstructing the view

So get it straight or honey, give it up

You gotta get right back to where we started from

She took her clothes off but kept the boots

He wanted Wonder Woman to tie him up and make him tell the truth

All right, nothin’ but the truth

See I was leavin’

But I’m thinkin’ that I ougtha stay

And I see that

Honey, I have lost my way

We got a permanent place

At that old Cheatin’ Heart Café

You know we do

Well, all right

Doncha wanna go?

I wanna chase you ’round the dance floor

At that old Cheatin’ Heart Café

Here I come

Chase each other round the room some, girl

Comin’ to get ya

Gonna get it back

Gotta get right back

Gonna get it back

Gotta get right back

Gonna get it back

Gotta get right back

Gonna get it back

Gotta get right back, yeah

Gonna get it back

Gotta get right back

Gonna get it back
