Dani California
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


Getting born in the state of Mississippi
Papa was a copper, and her mama was a hippy
In Alabama she would swing a hammer
Price you got to pay when you break the panorama
She never knew that there was anything more than poor
What in the world does your company take me for?
Black bandanna, sweet Louisiana
Robbing on a bank in the state of Indiana
She's a runner
Rebel, and a stunner
On her merry way saying baby, watcha gonna?
Looking 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, yeah

She's a lover, baby, and a fighter
Should've seen it coming when I 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 stealing another breath
I love my baby to death

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

Who knew the other side of you?
Who knew that others died to prove?
Too true to say goodbye to you
Too true to say, say, say

Pushed the fader, gifted animator
One for the now, and eleven for the later
Never made it up to Minnesota
North Dakota man
Wasn't gunnin' for the quota
Down in the Badlands she was saving the best for last
It only hurts when I laugh
Gone too fast

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

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

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California
     ♪~lyrics~♬

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

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus]

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...

@400 billion suns I don't play anything, just have spent a few decades listening to music - mostly rock but plenty of other music too. 

I also claim that John Prine's The Great Compromise borrowed heavily from Bob Dylan's Desolation Row:

Bob Dylan - Desolation Row

John Prine - The Great Compromise
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2okOuZ8T_o

And also that Neil Young's Music Arcade was influenced by Tom Waits' Jersey Girl:

Tom Waits - Jersey Girl

Not everyone believes me, but I swear.

Channeling is the future. I love sharing minds, how bout you? Ohh... Say this then...
I shall not Fear
Fear is the Mind-Killer
Fear is that tiny death which brings Total Obliteration
I will allow it to run through and past me
And turn the Inward Eye to see its Path
When Fear is gone, there is No Thing
Only I remains...
Then try channeling your favorite singers...
Better connection, better voice quality.
So very awesome, cause it's an atom on the top of the Iceberg of Godhood of Humanity.
Spiral out, keep going.
