Van Halen - Jump (Official Music Video)




"Jump" is a song by American hard rock band Van Halen. It was released in December 1983 as the lead single from their album 1984. It is Van Halen's most successful single, reaching number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100.


The song differs from earlier Van Halen songs in that it is driven by a keyboard line (played on an Oberheim OB-Xa), although the song does contain a guitar solo, which was spliced together from multiple takes. David Lee Roth dedicated the song to martial artist Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, of whom he was a student





Lyrics


I get up

And nothing gets me down

You got it tough

I've seen the toughest all around


And I know

Baby, just how you feel

You've got to roll

With the punches to get to what's real


Oh can't you see me standing here

I've got my back against the record machine

I ain't the worst that you've seen

Oh can't you see what I mean?


Might as well jump. Jump!

Might as well jump

Go ahead, jump. Jump!

Go ahead and jump


Ah-oh, hey you! Who said that?

Baby, how you been?

You say you don't know

You won't know until you begin


So can't you see me standing here

I've got my back against the record machine

I ain't the worst that you've seen

Oh can't you see what I mean?


Might as well jump. Jump!

Go ahead and jump

Might as well jump. Jump!

Go ahead and jump

Jump!


Might as well jump. Jump!

Go ahead and jump

Get it and jump. Jump!

Go ahead and jump


Jump! Jump! Jump! Jump!
