Van Halen - Right Now Lyrics

Don't wanna wait til tomorrow,
Why put it off another day?
One more walk through problems,
Built up, and stand in our way ,ah
One step ahead, one step behind me
Now you gotta run to get even
Make future plans, don't dream about yesterday, hey
C'mon turn, turn this thing around
Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now,
C'mon,it's everything
Right now,
Catch a magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything
Miss the beat, you lose the rhythm,
And nothing falls into place, no
Only missed by a fraction,
Slipped a little off your pace, oh,
The more things you get, the more you want,
Just trade in one for the other,
Workin so hard, to make it easier, whoa,
Got to turn, c'mon turn this thing around
Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now,
C'mon, it's everything
Right now,
Catch that magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything
It's enlightened me, right now
What are you waitin for
Oh, yeah, right now


Right now, hey
It's your tomorrow
Right now,
C'mon, it's everything
Right now,
Catch that magic moment, and do it right,
Right now
Right now, oh, Right now
It's what's happening?
Right here and now
Right now
It's right now
Tell me, what are you waiting for
Turn this thing around

    I apologize for the error.>"The walnuts were forgettibly plain" Ladies and Gentlemen,I have studied Psychiatrick Psychiatree and I suspect Pi-r-square has been Forged by the Vatican with "T" as (Jesus,God,Infinity) + r + EE (Energy Squared) II know it's horrible what about the roots right? I personally discovered the forgery on 3-14-19 Pi-r-square day."And the geeks shall rule the world" I like to say.I request the Vatican stop print at once and let me teach them how to walk str8,in any case since none of you have been using the "C" for cranial in the F** word it has come to my attention since "I do" that who ever uses the word wrong is a Misinformed Asterisk,so find the Governor of your state go tell em' you wanna know if he gonna help Austin Powers eat that Snickers bar he probably has while he hot foots all the mothers of America and their kids while seemingly snickering,inform him with the utmost assurance that chickens go B'gawk!and he is no rooster!!Change his job title to Chief Faulterisk Fumbles Finklestisk because using the F** wrong is a misinformed asterisk thing to do & car & nail don't what?Go together.The way I've always used word is different observe the answer to the biggest missed connection of all time!,(thunder sounds) here it is For (give?) Unlawful Cranial Knowledge it is the ghost within you it is "You" Wait,I got an idea,yeah,why don't you look at it from a washer & dryer stand point?The question mark is present tense for yes and no decision making process, working like scales for a balanced mind.The future awaits with cranial.Built-in washer/dryer,nice!.How does it feel?Meeting King F** is quite an honor,.Even Eden need Adam Eve add everything with t-r-ee for Pi-r-square forgery so new word for add is Fish and new word for everything is of course Ninja so there,so there is time to stop print ,because believing God help 1% not be prejudice leaves only 99% "You" for God to respect .do the math it can't say because the 1% clause would kick in so who can say?ME!- here's what you do if God helping not be prejudice means never 100% "You" will feel respected by God than remember it could never say or the 1% clause would kick in forever branding you only 99% your own choice and 1% prevented from marking your own words.No one ever forgets to wipe their tears away when they realize plumbers have snakes you know so Vatican can talk-?-about God. (Sink Scum?) Cry if you must but,if Plumbers have snakes what do walnut,almond,coconut have?Str8 jackets and padded cells and goofballs?My given name at birth is in Sacramento hall of records.Can Eden need a Fast trick to keep the world delusional?Psychiatree Garden is Eden need with fake/snake Psychiatricks and Psychiatree shenanigans?-Am looking to rule the world single handedly for a day then after I've str8ened out all the M-*** F**(misinformed people) I will give the world back to the people after naming it Myxyplyx Ynfynytyvyll.Thank You. Pass it on.(c)Dino Sherman 12-19-2019

  24. Jimmy Ackley

    This is when Van Halen was good, I know an entire generation younger then me think different. Eddie's always been awesome even in the earliest days, but to listen to David Lee Roth sing makes me I was never a fan till Sammy came along.

    Irregardless killem

    Jimmy Ackley your opinion is shit and nobody wants to hear it

  43. Richard Hamilton

    About 2 years ago my chocolate lab of 10 years had eye cancer , the vet said we could remove his eye and it might slow the cancer but she wasent sure. That dog was my best friend, anyways I pulled into a parking lot after getting off the phone with the vet and broke down. I just did not want to deal with it. Then this song comes on the radio. I've heard it many times , this was the first time i actually listened to what sammy was saying. Then it hit me. Each day is a gift , make the best of it. No one can promise you tomorrow. I felt so much better.
    Went ahead with the operation
    That gave 8 more months with him and sadly the cancer took over and I had to put him down. Whenever I hear this song it brings a smile to my face and I think about Gizmo.
    RIP my loyal friend. We will meet again

    Ron Barrett

    I have a chocolate lab. 9 yrs old my best friend. Full of tumors. We walk every day and alot of dog park time..I feel your pain.

    Mark T

    Richard Hamilton and Ron Barrett I feel your guys’ pain, man. In March of 2019 my white German Shepherd, who was 10 years old, started limping randomly one day and couldn’t put any weight on his right side back leg. Took him to the vet to get him checked out. Turns out that his leg bone had snapped like a twig and there was a tumor on the bone. They told me that Wally had osteosarcoma and that his leg was beyond saving, but because of his age, it was not possible to amputate the broken leg because he was too old to learn how to get around with just 3 legs. So I had to put my best buddy down a couple of days later. It’s hard but I knew that he was suffering and it was just better for him to let him go peacefully in my arms rather than drawn out and sick and in pain just to have him in my life a little longer.

  44. Jeffmorgan83

    The beginning of this song used to remind me of the underwater music from Turok: Dinosaur Hunter for the Nintendo 64

  45. mark alan

    Right now, 1200 people clicked the thumbs-down button.

  88. matt toledo

    One of the best song to this day.

  89. Ben Recob

    It's so sad to me that Van Halen barely survived in the 90's. They just didn't change with the times. Hair Metal bands were dying out, the only way Bon Jovi was still relevant was because they adjusted to the grunge style. Imo For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge was their last great album together.

  90. Juan Galindo

    Right now right now

  91. Danny Dukes

    This song always makes me think of Hockey for some reason ...

  92. Robby Don't Care

    The ride cymbal is so friggin good in this song. I miss my Grandpa.

    Robby Don't Care

    I miss my Grandpa bad.

  93. Brandon Collum

    The only Hagar song i consider worth listening to. The matching of the piano and guitar really saves him in this one. Imagine how amazing this could have with DLR at the vocals!

  94. Justin Newland

    Absolute Classic
