So Much I

Album: Stadium Arcadium (2006)
  • Next stop on the KLM
    Two lips and a sturdy stem
    A funny thing always happens when
    I get a heavy jam
    I'm gonna turn it into hydrogen
    I I, I I, I I, I I I I, I

    Cowgirl and a troubadour
    Mgm and the lion's roar
    A straight shot to the corner store
    I wanna show you what
    I wanna show you what your head is for
    I I, I I, I I, I I I I, I

    So much I, wish I could
    So many I, wish I would
    So much I, wish I could
    Count on you not to defeat me

    So much I, wish I could
    So many I, wish I would
    So much I, wish I could
    Count on you not to defeat me

    Please don't turn away again
    Please don't turn me into them
    Please don't turn away friend
    Please don't turn me into them

    Stand by for the great eclipse
    Rip it out now shake your hips
    Backing off the apocalypse
    I gotta loosen up
    I gotta loosen up to get my grip
    I I, I I, I I, I I I I, I

    So much I, wish I could
    So many I, wish I would
    So much I, wish I could
    Count on you not to defeat me

    So much I, wish I could
    So many I, wish I would
    So much I, wish I could
    Count on you not to defeat me

    Please don't turn away again
    Please don't turn me into them
    Please don't turn away friend
    Please don't turn me into them

    Please don't turn away again
    Please don't turn me into them Writer/s: MICHAEL BALZARY, JOHN ANTHONY FRUSCIANTE, ANTHONY KIEDIS, CHAD SMITH

  • Martin from Prague, Czech RepublicOne of the few songs on Stadium Arcadium that originated from Flea's bass line. However, the "Please don't turn away..." chorus is John's piece of work.
  • Alec from Mechanicsburg, SdThe Chili Peppers played this song during Al Gore's Live Earth concert in 2007.
  • Elizabeth from Fort Worth, Txwow i really do believe this song is about head now!!! its makes since! haha its def. changed that song forever for me
  • Sanja from Zabok, Croatiainteresting, derek... :)
    i like the way he's trying to say something that's realy hard to say...so his performance to those words is realy original.
  • Derek from Appleton, Withis song is about head. when they say "I wanna show you what your head is for
    I I, I I, I I, I I I I, I" is refering to head.
