Neither can I…. Dave used to be very interesting…. now, not at all.

Nothing at all. It’s mostly spoken word type poetry of Van Halen songs. Nothing of news or anything like that.

Voila!
This tune swings too much to not have its own video.
You’re welcome, Dave.

“Ain’t No Christmas”
David Lee Roth

Sure looked good on paper, once upon a lie.
Happily never after, and I’m not OK to drive.
You and me both, speaking the language of dreams.
Now it’s dark glasses on a sleepless night, ain’t no Christmas for me.

Let’s put the pin back in this one, and say we both survived.
Last blank space on the map, I think we’ve arrived.
Headway or getaway, makes no difference to me.
This side or the other, ain’t no Christmas for me.

Shakespeare’s heroes all drink ale, his villains all drink beer.
I had to drink something bitter, or I wouldn’t be here.
Have a pitcher full of pity, a shot of possibility,
Tall cool glass of nothing else, make no difference to me.
Dark glasses on a sleepless night, ain’t no Christmas for me.

[spoken] Here’s where the narrative changes.

Only hurts when I’m awake, that you can believe.
Yeah, I’d do it all again, just not for free.
If love’s a collect call, why-why’s it always for me?
Quittin’ while you’re ahead ain’t quittin’, and I’m quittin’.

Locals-only naked city, and the visit ain’t free.
Was the pear on the ground, not the apple in the tree?
Give me a pitcher full of pity, and a shot of possibility.
This side or the other, ain’t no Christmas for me.
No Christmas, ain’t gonna be no Christmas
Ain’t no Christmas for me.
Ain’t no Christmas for me.
Not this year.

They don’t say he is still in VH just the song is not about VH…

Very very interesting. If he’s saying it IS about Van Halen, then what is Dave telling us? If it’s more than just poetry?

And then Dave contradicts his management…

“DAVID LEE ROTH Says His New Song ‘Ain’t No Christmas’ Could Be About VAN HALEN”
http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/david-lee-roth-says-his-new-song-aint-no-christmas-could-be-about-van-halen/

David Lee Roth says that his new song, in which he offers a sad goodbye against a low-key guitar accompaniment, could be about VAN HALEN.

Lyrically, “Ain’t No Christmas” sounds like Roth is closing the door on the current VAN HALEN reunion, with lines that include: “Sure looked good on paper, once upon a lie. Happily never after, and I’m not okay to drive.

“Let’s put the pin back in this one, and say we both survived. Last blank space on the map I think we’ve arrived…

“Quittin’ while you’re ahead ain’t quittin’, and I’m quittin’.”

After initially denying that “Ain’t No Christmas” was about VAN HALEN — telling the Van Halen News Desk that “It’s poetry. It has nothing to do with VAN HALEN.” — he has since released a follow-up message, saying: “On second thought, if all work is autobiographic, maybe this song is about VAN HALEN…”

Greg Renoff, author of the new book “Van Halen Rising”, was one of many fans who thought “Ain’t No Christmas” was the singer’s goodbye message to VAN HALEN. Renoff said: “Roth’s vocal performance here is mournful and somber. His lyrics express feelings of bitterness and regret. My take is that the lyrics provide a commentary on Roth’s recent months with VAN HALEN and perhaps a window into the future of VAN HALEN.”

Rumors that Roth could possibly be succeeded by his original replacement, Sammy Hagar, have become more persistent during VAN HALEN’s current hiatus.

Hagar sent a tweet to Eddie Van Halen last month wishing him a happy birthday — and got a cordial response — despite the bad blood that has existed between the two of them since 2004. Hagar later said that part of the reason he did it was because of the recent deaths of rock legends Glenn Frey and David Bowie.

VAN HALEN has been quiet since completing a North American tour last summer and putting out a concert set called “Tokyo Dome: Live In Concert”.
