  • Lyrics
  • This song was written by Anthony Kiedis as a wedding proposal for bassist Flea and his new wife, model Frankie Rayder.
  • This song can show how much the band has changed over the years, and how diverse of a band they are. A joke was made that the same man who yelled "I want to party on your p--sy," is now singing "All I want is for you to be happy." >>
