  • She's only eighteen
    Don't like the Rollin' Stones
    She took a short cut
    To bein' fully grown
    She got that mood ring
    Her little sister, Rose
    A smell of Springsteen
    A pair of pantyhose

    This talking picture show is leaking from a silhouette
    She said, "My man, you know, it's time to get your fingers wet"
    You hustle faster when you can't afford a cigarette
    The last I heard from you, why, you were screamin', "Handle it!"

    Knock the world
    Right off its feet and straight onto its head
    The book of love will long be laughing after you are dead
    Fascinated by the look of you and what was said
    Make a play for all the brightest minds in life will share

    I heard some P-Funk
    Out on the road again
    To get your head shrunk is what I recommend
    It's in your bloodline
    A perfect Frankenstein
    Out on the lone pine
    I'm gonna make you mine
    It's understood, you wrap the fool right around my neck
    You've got some glitter on ya kitty in the disco tech
    I put my lovin' in your oven and I had to check
    The last I heard from you a you we're screamin', "Resurrect!"

    Knock the world
    Right off its feet and straight onto its head
    The book of love will long be laughing after you are dead
    Fascinated by the look of you and what was said
    Make a play for all the brightest minds in life will share, ooh

    Knock the world
    Right off its feet and straight onto its head
    The book of love will long be laughing after you are dead
    Fascinated by the look of you and what was said
    Make a play for all the brightest minds in life will share Writer/s: Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, John Frusciante, Michael Balzary

  • Martin from Prague, Czech RepublicI always thought the low voice in the "The last I heard from you..." part was Rick Rubin and not Chad. I don't know if I've read it somewhere or if it's just my assumption.
  • Timmy from Mukilteo, Wathis song is so good. one of the best chili pepper songs
  • Jo from Bethlehem, PaI love turning the bass up for this song, haha.
  • Dawson from Draper, UtI agree w/ Mischa, it is way cool. I like the album Stadium Arcadium, but if you listen to their 3 new EPs, those non-album tracks are a lot better than some songs on Stadium Arcadium, life for example, Warlocks.
  • Liz from The Town That Never Sleeps, NvThis song is about me.
    HA
    I wish.
    but i really feel like it describes alot of females these days
    *like myself*

  • Oneinamillion from Nyc, NyBeautiful song. Almost feels like an anthem when I hear it. What a fabulous album.
  • Mischa from Winnipegthis is the best song from stadium arcadium
  • Zach from Carlsbad, CaThis is a good reference to today's teenage girls who feel they need to live up to a standard of being slutty. I am in high school I see it everyday.
  • Tom from Northport, Nythis song is actually about Anthony Kiedis' girlfriend/wife who was 18 when they met
