​Experience

This song is by David Lee Roth and appears on the album Your Filthy Little Mouth (1994).

Original video
I learned half of what I know from the worst teacher goin'
Experience
That school's too slow an' I know folks
Smart ones from the city
Who gone and made a life's work
A decade later, they still doin' shitty
Experience

That's experience for ya
Moves kinda slow
You get off the bus
The same guy that got on twenty years ago
And as I feel it
Is it art or imitating?
'Cause if it's art
All my life's been fingerpainting

Had my best luck though with a big easel
I'd rather be an art project, babe
Than just weasel out with wearin' one
And come to suspect the whole experience

(Experience)
(Experience)

Experience, I think I understand
Is it like doin' ninety
Her top's down and wind's in your beer can
That single moment on a bungee jump
You're down goin' down, you're comin' up now

I think I felt that before
It was, it was kind of an experience
(Experience)

One shining moment lost in time
The one with the showroom shine
Well, I'm sorry girl, yes, I'm sorry boy
But I feel that way all the time, ooh

Till I finally made it
Life was kinda hit or miss
But after I'd made it
Life was, "Take a hit of this"
And I'd love to talk philosophy
But I gotta take a piss
Man, that philosophy runs right through ya
Take it from me, baby
I've got experience

(Experience)
(Experience)
All right
(Experience)

Experience, do I understand
Is it like doin' a hundred
Her top's down
The wind's in your beer can
That single moment, babe, on a bungee jump
You're down goin' down, you're comin' up now

Gee, don't look down

That special moment lost in time
The one with the showroom shine
Well, I'm sorry babe, yes, I'm sorry babe
But I feel that way all the time
