Aah ha aah
Jump back, what's that sound?
Here she comes full blast and top down
Hot shoe burnin' down the avenue
Model citizen, zero discipline
Don't you know she's coming home with me?
You'll lose her in the turn

Ease the seat back. So she can taste your shaft while driving down the road
When I was a little kid, I probably thought Van Halen’s song “Panama” was about the country or the canal. In fact I probably didn’t care what it meant, because at that age i just figured rock stars sang whatever they wanted whether it made sense or not. It wasn’t until I got a little older and understood the song’s lyrics, and VH’s word tricks a little better that I realized that “Panama’ wasn’t about Panama. It was just about your ma. lol

A good looking woman in a nice car picks him up is my interpretation.

No guys, It's about picking up a stripper and taking her home.

It's about drivin' in a badass car...Van Halen being Van Halen...lol. I agree with DangDog, though. :p
