  • Ya, ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya, ya
    Well, I'm an animal
    Somethin' like a cannibal
    I'm very flammable
    And partially programmable
    Centuries of overuse
    Now I wear it nice and loose

    Ya, ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya, ya
    Well, it's ubiquitous
    Tell me, can you stick to this?
    I'm on the brink of this
    And tell me what you think of this
    I'm in the Beauregard's
    Slow me down if I get hard

    We've only just begun
    Funky monks are on the run
    Gonna, gonna, gonna get you with the tip of my tongue
    And when you walk away
    I know what the kids would say
    Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah
    Gonna get you now

    Her perfume smells like gasoline
    My girlfriend's trash is nice and clean
    Acid landing on my tongue
    I think you know we've just begun
    She don't want the ladies room
    Transatlantic super groom

    Your hairplane is a monument
    The sexy art of continence
    And now I know you by your scent
    Let it be, we both get bent
    Need a minute to repair
    Sunny-siders always share

    We've only just begun
    Funky monks are on the run
    Gonna, gonna, gonna get you with the tip of my tongue
    And when you walk away
    I know what your kiss would say
    Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah
    I'm gonna get you with the tip of my gun

    Ya, ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya, ya
    Well, I believe in love
    Perfectly receivin' love
    It's vociferous
    Then come and get a whiff of this
    I'm at the pyramids
    Never had a fear of kids

    Ya, ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya, ya
    I'm on the precipice
    I come and make a mess of this
    It's the apocalypse
    I try to get a sock of this
    I'm at the county fair
    Haystack ride, I'll pull your hair

    We've only just begun
    Funky monks are on the run
    Gonna, gonna, gonna get you with the tip of my tongue
    And when you walk away
    I know what your kiss would say
    Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah
    Gonna, gonna, gonna get you with the tip of my gun
    We've only just begun
    Funky monks are on the run
    Gonna, gonna, gonna get you with the tip of my tongue
    And when you walk away
    I know what your kiss would say
    Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah
    Gonna get you now Writer/s: Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, John Frusciante, Michael Balzary
