Give It Away (in progress)

length: 4:37
writer: Flea, John Frusciante, Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith

What Ive got youve got to give it to your mamma
What Ive got youve got to give it to your pappa
What Ive got youve got to give it to your daughter
You do a little dance and then you drink a little water

What Ive got youve got to get it put it in you
What Ive got youve got to get it put it in you
What Ive got youve got to get it put it in you
Reeling with the feeling dont stop continue

Realize I dont want to be a miser
Confide wisely youll be the wiser
Young blood is the lovin upriser
How come everybody wanna keep it like the kaiser

Give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away now
I cant tell iff Im a king pin or a pauper

Greedy little people in a sea of distress
Keep your more to receive your less
Unimpressed by material excess
Love is free love me say hell yes

(Random Interlude)

Lucky me swimmin in my ability
Dancin down on life with agility
Come and drink it up from my fertility
Blessed with a bucket of lucky mobility

My mom I love her cause she love me
Long gone are the times when she scrub me
Feelin good my brother gonna hug me
Drink my juice lone chug-a-lug me

Theres a river born to be a giver
Keep you warm wont let you shiver
His heart is never gonna wither
Come on everybody time to deliver

Give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away now
I cant tell iff Im a king pin or a pauper

What Ive got youve got to give it to your mamma
What Ive got youve got to give it to your pappa
What Ive got youve got to give it to your daughter
You do a little dance and then you drink a little water

What Ive got youve got to get it put it in you
What Ive got youve got to get it put it in you
What Ive got youve got to get it put it in you
Reeling with the feeling dont stop continue

Realize I dont want to be a miser
Confide wisely youll be the wiser
Young blood is the lovin upriser
How come everybody wanna keep it like the kaiser

Give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away now
Give it away give it away give it away now

Give it away now

If You Have to Ask (radio mix)

length: 3:38
writer: John Frusciante, Chad Smith, Flea, Anthony Kiedis
A want to be gangster
Thinkin' he's a wise guy
Rob another bank
He's a sock 'em in the eye guy
Tank head
Mr. Bonnie and Clyde guy
Look him in the eye
He's not my kinda guy
Never be
Confusion proof
Pudding's sweet
But too aloof
Orange eye girl
With a backslide dew said
Yo homie
Who you talkin' to
A backed up paddywagon
Mackin' on a cat's ***
One upper cut
To the cold upper middle class
Born to storm
On boredom's face
And a little lust
To the funky *** flea bass
Most in the race
Just lose their grace
The blackest hole
In all of space
Crooked as a hooker
Now suck my thumb
Anybody want to come get some

If you have to ask
You'll never know
Funky ************s
Will not be told to go

If you have to ask
You'll never know
Funky ************s
Will not be told to go

Don't ask me why
I'm flyin' so high
Mr. Bubble meets superfly
In my third eye
Searchin' for a soul bride
She's my freakette
Soak it up inside
Deeper than a secret
Much more
Than meets the eye
To the funk
I fall into my new ride
My hand my hand
Magic on the one
Is a medicine man
Thinkin' of a few
Taboos that I ought to kill
Dancin' on their face
Like a stage on vaudeville

I feel so good
Can't be understood
Booty of a hoodlum
Rockin' my red hood

If you have to ask
You'll never know
Funky ************s
Will not be told to go

If you have to ask
You'll never know
Funky ************s
Will not be told to go

Nobody Weird Like Me (live)

length: 5:05
engineer: Biff Dawes
writer: Red Hot Chili Peppers
the freakiest show i know
is the show of my own
living my life in and out
of the twilight zone

bust my britches
bless my soul
i'm a freak of nature
walking totem pole
look and see i think you'll agree
nobody weird like me

intercourse with a porpoise
is a dream for me
hell bent on inventing
a new species

bust my britches
bless my soul
i'm a freak of nature
walking totem pole
look and see i think you'll agree
nobody weird like me

riding down the path
on the back of a giraffe
me and the giraffe laughed
cause i passed some gas

bust my britches
bless my soul
i'm a freak of nature
walking totem pole
look and see i think you'll agree
nobody weird like me

enchanted as a rabbit
that my life is a dream
well everything is never
just as it seems

the freakiest show i know
is the show of my own
living my life in and out
of the twilight zone

Everybody knows about Hollywood skunks
Soulfull s__ and funky monks
My tencil town is made of steel
Let's whimp, let's shout, let's make a deal !

Hollywood and Hollywood not
We are so lively on the spot
Feel so alive, don't know where to stop
Are you def or dumb or what?!

Silly little creature, Sikamikanico
Sittin' on a bleature, Sikamikanico
I don't want a teacher, Sikamikanico
If we're gonna reach ya, Sikamikanico
Don't you know 'bout Frank Sinatra
That's all gone because I got up
We don't just play, we display
Gotta give it up, gotta do it my way

Shootin' my s__ upto the cave
You might receive my radio wave
Shake it girl, you won't get hurt
I knock my d___ into the dirt

Silly little creature, Sikamikanico
Sittin' on a bleature, Sikamikanico
I don't want a teacher, Sikamikanico
If we're gonna reach ya, Sikamikanico

Anybody want some, Sikamikanico
Everybody on the run, Sikamikanico
Rock it more breeza, Sikamikanico
If we're gonna treasure, Sikamikanico

Hey, Ho, Let's go
Mother f___er, wanna be a jigolo
Let me demolo how it goes
Under ho sittin on my big toe
Hey Joe, a radio chump
I'll never gonna overcome in Hollywood, I'll come alone
Oh no, it would now leave my nose that you blow
Hey ho, let's go

So big boy say you want bad news
We doubt our mama's been confused
It's plain to see we rock the groove
If you don't like it, time to move

And all the press, you don't amaze me
I'm not your d___ so don't appraise me
Never gonna fit your critical s___
You better watch out, you might get hit

Silly little creature, Sikamikanico
Sittin' on a bleature, Sikamikanico
I don't want a teacher, Sikamikanico
If we're gonna reach ya, Sikamikanico

Anybody want some, Sikamikanico
Everybody on the run, Sikamikanico
Rock it more breeza, Sikamikanico
If we're gonna treasure, Sikamikanico

Breaking the Girl (radio edit)

length: 4:30
producer: Rick Rubin
engineer: Brendan O’Brien
writer: Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, Flea, John Frusciante
I am a man
Cut from the know
Rarely do friends
Come and then go
She was a girl
Soft but estranged
We were the two
Our lives rearranged
Feeling so good that day
A feeling of love that day

Twisting and turning
Your feelings are burning
You're breaking the girl
She meant you no harm
Think you're so clever
But now you must sever
You're breaking the girl
He loves no one else

Raised by my dad
Girl of the day
He was my man
That was the way
She was the girl
Left alone
Feeling the need
To make me her home
I don't know what when or why
The twilight of love had arrived

Twisting and turning
Your feelings are burning
You're breaking the girl
She meant you no harm
Think you're so clever
But now you must sever
You're breaking the girl
He loves no one else

Twisting and turning
Your feelings are burning
You're breaking the girl
She meant you no harm
Think you're so clever
But now you must sever
You're breaking the girl
He loves no one else

Soul to Squeeze

length: 4:52
producer: Rick Rubin
engineer: Brendan O’Brien
writer: Anthony Kiedis, John Frusciante, Flea, Chad Smith
I've got a bad disease
But from my brain is where I bleed.
Insanity it seems
Has got me by my soul to squeeze.

Well all the love from thee
With all the dying trees I scream.
The angels in my dreams (yeah)
Have turned to demons of greed that's mean.

[Chorus]
Where I go I just don't know
I got to got to gotta take it slow.
When I find my piece of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time.

Today love smiled on me.
It took away my pain say please
All that you had to free
You gotta let it be oh yeah.

[Chorus]

Oh, so polite indeed
Well I got everything I need.
Oh make my days a breeze
And take away my self destruction.

It's bitter baby,
And it's very sweet.
I'm on a rollercoaster,
but I'm on my feet.
Take me to the river,
Let me on your shore.
I'll be coming back baby,
I'll be coming back for more.

Doo doo doo doo dingle zing a dong bone
Ba-di ba-da ba-zumba crunga cong gone bad

I could not forget
But I will not endeavor
Simple pleasures aren't as special
But I won't regret it never.

[Chorus]

Where I go I just don't know
I might end up somewhere in Mexico.
When I find my piece of mind
I'm gonna keep you for the end of time.
