Sammy Hagar - Tropic Of Capricorn Lyrics

Ain't no island, no sandy beach
No waborita in my reach
But I can feel it, sure as I was born
Way down in the Tropic of Capricorn, wooh

Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye

I smell your body, feel your heat
You touch my senses, ooh wee
I climb your mountain, slide into your arms
Into the Tropic of Capricorn

I wanna live, wanna love
And find myself that little piece of paradise
I wanna fly, leaving yesterday
And wake up in the high of a paradise state of mind

Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye

It's what you're thinking, it's what ya feel
'Cause what you're seeing ain't really real
In three dimensions or maybe more
Oh baby, I got what you're looking for

I wanna live, I wanna love
And find myself that little piece of paradise
I wanna fly, leaving yesterday
And wake up in the high of a paradise state of mind

(Ooh, tropical paradise) Paradise
(Ooh, tropical state of mind) State of mind
(Ooh, tropical paradise) Wooh

Wanna wake up in the high
I wanna wake up in the heat of paradise

Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye

So let it shine for every mother
Let it shine for every son
Let it shine for every body
Let it shine on every one

Let it be for those who want it
Bad enough I'll give you mine
Just let it shine, let it shine
Let it shine

I wanna live, wanna love
And find myself that little piece of paradise
I wanna fly, leaving yesterday
Wake up in the high
I wanna wake up in the heat
I wanna wake up in paradise

(Down in the Tropic, down in the Tropic)
Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye
(Down in the Tropic of Capricorn)

I wanna live, I wanna love
(Down in the Tropic, down in the Tropic) Wooh
(Down in the Tropic of Capricorn)

I wanna fly, I'm leaving yesterday
(Down in the Tropic, down in the Tropic)
(Down in the Tropic of Capricorn)

Take me home, I'm gonna home
(Down in the Tropic, down in the Tropic) Wooh
(Down in the Tropic of Capricorn)

(Down in the Tropic, down in the Tropic)
Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye
(Down in the Tropic of Capricorn)

(Down in the Tropic, down in the Tropic)
(Down in the Tropic of Capricorn)

  23. Southeastern Ohio Honey Bees & BBQ

    Samy must be trying to catch up with kenny chesney and write every song about a frickin beach.

  24. Andrew Eagles

    This is brilliant! It sounds both like Van Halen in 90’s era, meaning that they already sounded like it’s 2019, and like good old Sammy’s solo albums.. It’s just amazing, thank you Sammy, for the song and for bringing summer mood to NYC for a while!

  25. chris oconnor

  59. Raymond Lugo

    I was hoping to hear a guitar solo. Nice song

  60. Edward Prete

    One of Sammy’s best songs!

  61. David Peterson

    70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2019 you can hear no difference in his voice! Same timber, tone and power. Sammy is a freak of nature, man.


    David Peterson i was thinking the same thing!

    mr. skydog

    Oh hell yeah!! Diamond davey couldn't pop a pimple on Sammy's ass.

    Nate Kurabelis

    I just thought that same thing. I had to look to see if this was actually a new song, or an old one re-uploaded. Amazing voice, still!

    David Peterson

    As great as Sammy is/was, I prefer the Diamond Dave era. Never heard of Van Halen until I saw them opening for Sabbath. Holy mother of rock gods, they destroyed Sabbath!

    Robert Yancey

    It's called GOOD GENES and TAKING GOOD CARE OF ONE SELF...😁😁😁☺😊😎😎😎

  62. Reaganbites

    It was just a matter of time before you went all 'Jimmy Buffet' on us. But I like it. Been a fan since Montrose. :)

    Rik Nel

    He did that 20 years ago. Where ya been ?

  82. Tim Moore

    How does he continually write great stuff 50 years later?


    Tim Moore being rich, easy living and doing what you love. Sounds simple right?

    jeff dubuque

    great songwriter, rare gift.

  83. jandvadams

    Happy belated birthday Sammy!!!! I love the throwback sound of Summer Nights in this. This song is so sweet. It makes me wish for the beach and keep living the good times. Damnit Sammy, I swear you are becoming the Hard Rock version of Jimmy Buffet, but in a super cool way. I love you brother. I've been rockin' with you since Montrose. I'm 49 now, so that should give you some idea. You are my favorite singer ever. There have been times in my life that I truly listened to your music to get me through the day. I don't know if you realize it or not; but you have been an inspiration for so many people. And I think you know that. You said it once that every song is someone's favorite song. Maybe not the exact wording, but you said it sort of that way. You sir, have written songs that have really connected with me and helped shaped the way I wanted to live my life. And I want to thank you for that, my friend. The song Give to Live inspired me to rethink my life after many years of trying to be a recording artist to becoming a police officer. I have a very accomplished sense of worth because of it. But music has and always will be a very big part of my life. I love the way you can use melody to tell a story. I have been playing music since I was a kid. Even tried to make it to the big time. I was almost there. I still play music to this very day. I have learned how to play various instruments and even built my own recording studio in my basement. I would love to just sit down with you and couple of acoustic guitars and our favorite bottle of something and just talk about life and play a few great songs. That's tops on my bucket list! Happy Birthday! Thank you for all the great music. I truly, truly thank you.

  84. MrHitler68

    Where is the rest of the song the ukelele outro

  85. Pablo Jose

    Where the hell is the Tropic of Capricorn? Tropic of Capricorn passes through three Continents: South America (Countries: Argentina; Brazil; Chile; Paraguay); Africa (Countries: Namibia; Botswana; South Africa; Mozambique; Madagascar) , and Australia (Country: Australia).

  86. EddieTheMan2

    Please fly away muppet! Those who understand don't want forever! :)

  87. PHOUR-ish/69* I'm Rite BITCH

    Red Rocker lives in all of us. 🕊

  88. rick green

    A Happy song Sammy is so cool I hope we get the chance to hear him in VH one more time but if not glad we have the memories

  89. Bob Winters

    Sammy is now over 70 and has never sounded better! Love the song! Sure do miss him in VH! Loved Van Hagar! By the way, get well Eddie, we love you and are praying for you! 🙏🙏🙏🙏


    Maybe will see Eddie do a cameo with David in Vegas and bolt out a few tunes, great times again for us old farts!
