The Lyrics

A tribute to the former Van Halen bassist.
Van Halen's been reuinted
'Cause nobody can deny it
What's missing was a bass player
But no, not the one from Slayer
Well change can be bad, but what's the heck?
I'd rather listen to lots of Beck
And solo works of Sammy Hagar furiously

Where's Michael Anthony?
Someone Van Halen need
Did he betray his band
They needed that bass-playin' man
Why would they continue
Without ol' Mikey too?
Some certain bassist I wanted to see
I've worried about Michael Anthony

Some of my hopes but all my dreams
Are suddenly quite shattered this time
When will good ol' Mikey just come back?
Why did he betrayed a band that he loves the most?
This was making many of their fans sad almost
For you man we know, he can't let go
Of the times he'll always know

Where's Michael Anthony?
He ain't our enemy
He betrayed them somehow
Van Halen needed him right now
The fans worried 'bout that guy
Most people felt so shy
Every night, who's deep inside of me
Was none other than Michael Anthony

He's the breath of life in them
A fine band known as Van Halen
But someone named Wolfgang replaced him the first time
The first ti-
[music stops]

[Michael Anthony]: "What do you mean I've betrayed Van Halen? I think you've gone too far!"
[modified version of the guitar solo from Van Halen's "Jump" starts playing in the background, punching and kicking sounds as well as yells and screams are heard as well]
[Michael Anthony, stopped fighting as the guitar solo stops]: "I'll... get everything back!"

Where's Michael Anthony?
The guy that we must see
How come he left the band?
Wolfgang finally replaced that man
So Van Halen continued
Without ol' Mikey too?
Some certain dude deep inside of me
I've worried about Michael Anthony
