Slow Cheetah
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


Waking up dead inside of my head
Will never never do there is no med
No medicine to take

I've had a chance to be insane
Asylum from the falling rain
I've had a chance to break

It's so bad it's got to be good
Mysterious girl misunderstood
Dressed like a wedding cake

Any other day and I might play
A funeral march for Bonnie Brae
Why try and run away

Slow cheetah come
Before my forest
Looks like it's on today

Slow cheetah come
It's so euphoric
No matter what they say

I know a girl
She worked in a store
She knew not what
Her life was for
She barely knew her name

They tried to tell her
She would never be
As happy as the girl
In the magazine
She bought it with her pay

Slow cheetah come
Before my forest
Looks like it's on today

Slow cheetah come
It's so euphoric
No matter what they say

Everyone has
So much to say
They talk talk talk
Their lives away
Don't even hesitate

Walking on down
To the burial ground
It's a very old dance
With a merry old sound
Looks like it's on today

Slow cheetah come
Before my forest
Looks like it's on today

Slow cheetah come
It's so euphoric
No matter what they say

Slow cheetah come
Before my forest
Looks like it's on today

Slow cheetah come
It's so euphoric
No matter what they say

[Verse 1]
Waking up dead, inside of my head
Would never, never do, there is no med
No medicine to take

I've had a chance to be insane
Asylum from the falling rain
I've had a chance to break

[Verse 2]
It’s so bad, it’s got to be good
Mysterious girl misunderstood
Dressed like a wedding cake

Any other day and I might play
A funeral march for Bonnie Brae
Why try and run away?

[Chorus]
Slow cheetah come before my forest
Looks like it's on today
Slow cheetah come, it's so euphoric
No matter what they say

[Verse 3]
I know a girl, she worked in a store
She knew not what her life was for
She barely knew her name

They tried to tell her, she would never be
As happy as a girl in a magazine
She bought it with her pay

[Chorus]
Slow cheetah come before my forest
Looks like it's on today
Slow cheetah come, it's so euphoric
No matter what they say

[Verse 4]
Everyone has so much to say
They talk, talk, talk their lives away
Don’t even hesitate

Walking on down to the burial ground
It’s a very old dance with a merry old sound
Looks like it's on today

[Chorus]
Slow cheetah come before my forest
Looks like it's on today
Slow cheetah come, it's so euphoric
No matter what they say
Slow cheetah come before my forest
Looks like it's on today
Slow cheetah come, it's so euphoric
No matter what they say

Lyrics of the 7th track of the album Stadium Arcadium:

[Verse 1]
Waking up dead, inside of my head
Would never, never do, there is no med
No medicine to take

I've had a chance to be insane
Asylum from the falling rain
I've had a chance to break

[Verse 2]
It’s so bad, it’s got to be good
Mysterious girl misunderstood
Dressed like a wedding cake

Any other day and I might play
A funeral march for Bonnie Brae
Why try and run away?

[Chorus]
Slow cheetah come before my forest
Looks like it's on today
Slow cheetah come, it's so euphoric
No matter what they say

[Verse 3]
I know a girl, she worked in a store
She knew not what her life was for
She barely knew her name

They tried to tell her, she would never be
As happy as a girl in a magazine
She bought it with her pay

[Chorus]
Slow cheetah come before my forest
Looks like it's on today
Slow cheetah come, it's so euphoric
No matter what they say

[Verse 4]
Everyone has so much to say
They talk, talk, talk their lives away
Don’t even hesitate

Walking on down to the burial ground
It’s a very old dance with a merry old sound
Looks like it's on today

[Chorus]
Slow cheetah come before my forest
Looks like it's on today
Slow cheetah come, it's so euphoric
No matter what they say
Slow cheetah come before my forest
Looks like it's on today
Slow cheetah come, it's so euphoric
No matter what they say

I haven't heard this song in probably 10 years so I decided to listen to it and I realized I still have all the lyrics memorized

badiraha

Me too! I loved this song so much. I'm sure my neighbors got tired to hearing it but I didn't care and don't care now.

Bec Hunter

Bruh it is the same for me with a lot of songs

John Frustrante 99
