This song is about bassist Flea and how when he was younger, he was small and got picked on a lot. During Flea's younger years he was by himself and a group of guys called him a name because he had pink hair, so he flicked them off. They proceeded to beat him up. When Flea came home, Hillel (Chili Peppers' guitarist) was making a big pot of soup. He saw Flea's beat up face and said, "Oh my God! What happened?" When Flea told him what happened, Hillel yelled, "Come on let's go get 'em!" But Flea just took one look at skinny Hillel, his soup, and back to Hillel, "Nah man it's alright." So the song is about two things, that story in particular, and also about the great feeling of being really small in a huge world. Flea has said he loves feeling as small as an ant when walking through a forest with huge trees.
