  • Never twenty one when everyone's a sailor
    Coming up strong at the animal bar
    Ever loving more with Mister Norman Mailer
    Turn another page at the animal bar
    And it won't be long
    No it won't be long
    No it won't be long
    Because it can't be long

    I I I the cry of vacilation
    I I I the higher meditation
    I I I the sweet precipitation
    I I I the higher depravation
    And it won't be long
    No it won't be long
    No it won't be long
    Because it can't be long

    Rain on my frustration
    Save my queen now break this
    Wash me down my station
    Make more rain forsaken
    Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
    One, two, three let's make this
    Coming through the world I got a feeling of words
    One, two, three forsake this

    All aboard the ship 'cause
    You're going to need arc when
    The wet comes down you'll be swimming like a shark
    Mopping up the pain when I'm a little older
    Right as rain at the animal bar
    And it won't be long
    No it won't be long
    No it won't be long
    Because it can't be long

    I I I the cry of vacilation
    I I I the higher meditation
    I I I the mild precipitation
    I I I the higher depravation
    And it won't be long
    No it won't be long
    No it won't be long
    Because it can't be long

    Rain on my frustration
    Save my queen now break this
    Wash me down my station
    Make more rain forsaken
    Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
    One, two, three let's make this
    Coming through the world I got a feeling of words
    One, two, three forsake this

    Raindrops will fall from the sky
    Stealing the shape from your eye
    Now we can all get some sleep
    The water the water the water
    Saving us from the heat
    Something's will die in their place
    Others will leave with a trace
    Fire will come by its day
    The water the water the water
    Washing it all away

    Rain on my frustration
    Save my queen now break this
    Wash me down my station
    Make more rain forsaken
    Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
    One, two, three let's make this
    Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
    One, two, three forsake this
    Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
    One, two, three let's make this
    Read between the sky and every piece of the earth
    One, two, three forsake this Writer/s: ANTHONY KIEDIS, CHAD SMITH, JOHN ANTHONY FRUSCIANTE, MICHAEL BALZARY

  • Vida_pirata from Queensland The Animal Bar is in Karumba in far north Queensland, Flea was born in Melbourne, Victoria one of Australia's southern states, they are 2908km apart or 1807 miles.

    The song is not about a bar anywhere near where Flea was born.
  • Martin from Santa Fe, ArgentinaAnimal Bar is about this place in Australia where there is a part of the year when you have no rain. When it finally rains, people feels relieved and reborn, water washes everything away and gives them energy to continue. That's more or less the idea behind "Animal Bar"
  • Kevin from Albany, OrThis is not a video of Animal Bar. It's actually 21st Century.
