Hot For The Teacher è una canzone dei Van Halen tratta dal loro album 1984. E’ famosa, oltre che per la canzone di per se’, per l’intro di batteria che ricorda il rumore di una motocicletta ma anche e soprattutto per la provocazione sessuale che lancia il testo, riferendosi ad una scena di sesso di un alunno con la professoressa. Nello stesso videoclip compare una bella prof che si esibisce in uno striptease.
E’ stata classificata 36esima dal canale tv americano VH1 tra le migliori canzoni hard rock di tutti i tempi.

Testo Lyrics

Oh, wow, man, I said
Wait a second, man
What do you think the teacher’s gonna look like this year?
Fuck man!

Uh!
Oh yeah!

T-T-teacher stop that screamin’
Teacher don’t you see?
Don’t wanna be no uptown fool
Maybe I should go to hell
But I am doing well
Teacher needs to see me after school

I think of all the education that I’ve missed
But then my homework was never quite like this!

Ow! Got it bad,
Got it bad,
Got it bad,
I’m hot for teacher!
I’ve got it bad, so bad
I’m hot for teacher!

Hey, I heard you missed us
We’re back! (Hey!)
I brought my pencil
Give me something to write on, man!
Whoa

Uh!

Ooo-oo-ooo

I heard about your lessons
but lessons are so cold
I didn’t know about this school
Little girl from Cherry Lawn
How can you be 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!

Whoa! Got it bad,
Got it bad,
Got it bad,
I’m hot for teacher!
I’ve got it bad, so bad
I’m hot for teacher!

Whoa!
(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!

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

Whoa!
Oh! Ooh, yes I’m hot
Wow!

Whoa!
Oh! Ooh, yes I’m hot
Wow!

Oh my God!
Woo!
