  • Van Halen is considered by some as the most influential "hair band" of the 80s. The music video "Hot for Teacher" paints a disquieting view of the classroom . . . cute child actors were used to play the young band members behaving as bullies to one ugly child in grade school. . . the teachers in the video were all female, sexy, bikini-clad . . . Eddie Van Halen is shown walking down the library table . . . there were hidden messages in the video. All these elements, in addition to the music, made it one of the most watched videos of its time.

 

HOT FOR TEACHER
By
Van Halen



Lyrics:

Spoken:
Oh wow, man!
Wait a second man.
Whaddaya think the teacher's gonna look like this year?

Uh!
Oh yeah!

T-T-Teacher stop that screaming, teacher don't you see?
Don't wanna be no uptown fool.
Maybe I should go to hell, but I'm doin' well,
teacher needs to see me after school.

Chorus:
I think of all the education that I missed.
But then my homework was never quite like this.
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.

Spoken:
"Hey, I heard you missed us, we're back!"
"I brought my pencil"
"Gimme something to write on, man"

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've missed
But then my homework was never quite like this!

Repeat Chorus

(guitar solo)

Oh man, I think the clock is slow
(What are you doin' this weekend?)
I don't feel tardy
Class dismissed!
Ooh-yeah!

I've got it bad,
Got it bad,
Got it bad,
I'm hot for teacher!

Whoa!
Oh! Ooh, yes I'm hot
Wow!

Oh my God!
Woo!
