  • Come on come on baby
    Let me show you what I'm talking about (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
    You try to be a lady
    But your walkin' like a sour kraut (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
    Looka looka lika lika
    Like you want to get some (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
    If you never tell a lie
    Then you never have to play dumb (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)

    Dirty baby time you're gonna take some
    Pretty baby love you're gonna make some
    Little lady hearts you're gonna break some
    Kinda shady tears you're gonna fake some

    Dirty baby we've got a situation
    Pretty baby open invitation
    Little lady what a reputation
    Kinda shady now you're gonna make again

    I know you can straddle
    The atmosphere
    A tiny storm in your teacup girl
    I know you can battle the
    Masses, dear
    A tiny storm in your teacup girl

    Every other day you say
    You're gonna have to bury 'em (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
    Famous last words
    Spoken from the laserium (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
    Descendants had to record
    Sayin' somethin' 'bout Milo (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
    You can take the a train
    But you're gonna have to lie low (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)

    I know you can straddle
    The atmosphere
    A tiny storm in your teacup girl
    I know you can battle the
    Masses, dear
    A tiny storm in your teacup girl

    Dirty baby time you're gonna take some
    Pretty baby love you're gonna make some
    Little lady hearts you're gonna break some
    Kinda shady tears you're gonna fake some

    Dirty baby we've got a situation
    Pretty baby open invitation
    Little lady what a reputation
    Kinda shady now you're gonna make again

    I know you can straddle
    The atmosphere
    A tiny storm in your teacup girl
    I know we may never get
    Out of, here

  • Liam from New HampshireAnyone else notice that it sounds like Flea recorded this song with a Modulus bass instead of the Fender Jazz bass that he used for the rest of the album?
  • Nicole from Chicago, IlThis song is one of the many examples off the album that RHCP is still JUST as good and haven't sold out. The song is funky and the lyrics are crazy.
  • Nicole from Chicago, IlI love this song! It's one of my favorite songs of the album. I love the quirky lyrics and fast beat, especially the part that says "Descendants had a record sayin' something bout Milo!" I think it's wierd that they recorded it for the album, but aren't allegedly aren't interested in it. I would have loved to hear it live!
  • Angelo from Las Vegas, Nvi love this along with all RHCP songs.
    i love the line "loka loka lika lika like you wanna get some"
  • Krysten from Odessa, TxI love this song. Too bad they don't like performing it, and it was going to be the next single (instead of Hump de Bump) but I heard John Frusciante didn't like it so they switched them out.
  • Kelly Mackenzie from Edmonton, CanadaBest line ever wirtten is in this song. "Walkin' like a sauerkraut" How can you not love a song with a lyric like that?
  • Grayson from Cleveland, OhThis song is brilliant. the changes and bridge are just incredible. the best rock song in quite a while
  • Josh from New York, Nyit's kinda sad that they totally abandoned their old-school rapping. i loved it.
