Tell Me Baby
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


They come from every state to find
Some dreams were meant to be declined
Tell the man what did you have in mind
What have you come to do?

No turning water into wine
No learning while you're in the line
I'll take you to the broken sign
You see these lights are blue
Come and get it
Lost it at the city limit
Say goodbye
'Cause they will find a way to trim it
Everybody
Lookin' for a silly gimmick
Gotta get away
Can't take it for another minute

This town is made of many things
Just look at what the current brings
So high, it's only promising
This place was made on you

Tell me, baby, what's your story
Where you come from
And where you wanna go this time?
Tell me, lover, are you lonely?
The thing we need is
Never all that hard to find
Tell me, baby, what's your story
Where do you come from
And where you wanna go this time?
You're so lovely, are you lonely?
Giving up on the innocence you left behind

Some claim to have the fortitude
Too shrewd to blow the interlude
Sustaining pain to set a mood
Step out to be renewed

I'll move you like a baritone
Jungle brothers on the microphone
Getting over with an undertone
It's time to turn to stone

Chitty chitty, baby
When your nose is in the nitty gritty
Life could be a little sweet
But life could be a little shitty
What a pity
Boston and a Kansas city
Looking for a hundred
But you only ever found a fitty

Three fingers in the honeycomb
You ring just like a xylophone
Devoted to the chromosome
The day that you left home

Tell me, baby, what's your story
Where you come from
And where you wanna go this time?
Tell me, lover, are you lonely?
The thing we need is
Never all that hard to find
Tell me, baby, what's your story
Where you come from
And where you wanna go this time?
You're so lovely, are you lonely?
Giving up on the innocence you left behind

Tell me, baby, what's your story
Where you come from
And where you wanna go this time?
Tell me, lover, are you lonely?
The thing we need is
Never all that hard to find
Tell me, baby, what's your story
Where you come from
And where you wanna go this time?
You're so lovely, are you lonely?
Giving up on the innocence you left behind

[Verse 1]
They come from every state to find
Some dreams were meant to be declined
Tell the man what did you have in mind
What have you come to do?
No turning water into wine
No learning while you're in the line
I'll take you to the broken sign
You see these lights are blue
Come and get it, lost it at the city limit
Say goodbye, cause they will find a way to trip it
Everybody's looking for a silly gimmick
Got to get away can't take it for another minute
This town is made of many things
Just look at what the current brings
So high it's almost promising
This place was made on you

[Chorus]
Tell me baby what's your story?
Where you come from and where you want to go this time, oh
Tell me, lover are you lonely?
The thing we need is never all that hard to find, oh
Tell me baby what's your story
Where do you come from and where you want to go this time, oh
You're so lovely are you lonely?
Giving up on the innocence you left behind

[Verse 2]
Some claim to have the fortitude
Too shrewd to blow the interlude
Sustaining pain to set the mood
Step out to be renewed
I'll move you like a baritone
Jungle brother's on the microphone
Getting over with the undertone
It's time to turn to stone
Chitty chitty baby when your nose is in the nitty gritty
Life can be a little sweet but life can be a little shitty
What a pity Boston and a Kansas City
Looking for a hundred but you only ever found a fifty
Three fingers in the honeycomb
You ring just like a xylophone
Devoted to the chromosome
The day that you left home

[Chorus]
Tell me baby what's your story?
Where you come from and where you want to go this time, oh
Tell me, lover are you lonely?
The thing we need is never all that hard to find, oh
Tell me baby what's your story
Where do you come from and where you want to go this time, oh
You're so lovely are you lonely?
Giving up on the innocence you left behind behind

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]
Tell me baby what's your story?
Where you come from and where you want to go this time, oh
Tell me, lover are you lonely?
The thing we need is never all that hard to find, oh
Tell me baby what's your story
Where do you come from and where you want to go this time, oh
You're so lovely are you lonely?
Giving up on the innocence you left behind

@Rhonda B.E A blessed day to you Rhonda. I hope that you are having a most wonderful day!🙂💯 Praise God! Are you a believer in Christ? Also, how do you relate that song or the message to Jesus the Lord? Also, do you pray and read the Bible?

Rhonda B.E

@Karon Williams Honestly, and I'm not disagreeing with what you're saying, the first song that pops in my head is "Indestructible" by Disturbed.

Hi Red Hot Chili Peppers, not sure if you'll ever see this...
But the third person interviewed, the long haired guy with the white tank top that said
"i dont have a dream of being star, I just like being me" actually just passed away a couple days ago.
Someone posted this video on his facebook page and i think its so awesome that you included him in this video.
It was great to have seen him acting just as he always has but on a format that will be saved for ever.
Thank you

Sean Roche

His name was Robert Paulson.
