Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Gettin' born in the state of Mississippi
Poppa was a copper and mamma was a hippie
In Alabama she was swinging hammer
Price you gotta pay when you break the panarama

She never knew that there was anything more than four
What in the world 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
Come on every way saying baby what ya gonna

Lookin' down the barrel of a hot metal 45
Just another way to survive

California rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest
Yeaaah, yeaaah

She's a lover, baby and a fighter
Should've seen her coming when it got a little brighter
With a name like Dani California
The day was gonna come when I was gonna morn ya
A little loaded she was stealing another breath
I love my baby to death


Who knew that aww the side of you
Who knew that all this time you've been
Too true to say good bye to you
Too true to say say say

Pustribator, gifted animator,
One for the now and living for the later
Never made it up to Minnesota
North Dakota man was a gunnin' for Dakota
Down in the badlands she was saving the best for last
It only hurts when I laugh
Gone too fast...

[Chorus 2x]
