????????? Dani California Red Hot Chili Peppers ??????? Stadium Arcadium

Gettin’ born in the state of Mississippi 

Papa was a copper and mama was a hippie 

In Alabama she would swing a hammer 

Price you gotta pay when you pick the panorama 

She never knew that there was anything more than poor 

What in the world? What does your company take me for?


Black bandana, sweet Louisiana 

Robbin’ on a bank in the state of Indiana 

She’s a runner, rebel and a stunner 

Oh her merry way sayin’ baby whatcha gonna

Lookin’ down the barrel of a hot metal forty five 

Just another way to survive 



California rest in peace 

Simultaneous release 

California show your teeth 

She’s my priestess, I’m your priest, yeah, yeah 


She’s a lover baby and a fighter 

Shoulda seen her coming when it got a little brighter 

With a name like Dani California 

Day was gonna come when I was gonna mourn ya 

A little loaded, she was stealin’ another breath 

I love my baby to death 




Who knew the other side of you? 

Who knew what others died to prove?

Too true to say good bye to you 

Too true to say say say… 


Push the fader, gifted animator

One for the now and eleven for the later 

Never made it up to Minnesota 

North Dakota man was a gunnin’ for the quota 


Down in the badlands she was savin’ the best for last 

It only hurts when I laugh 

Gone too fast…
