The Lyrics

The premise of this song is very different from darkjon's version - which happens to be very good. His is a tribute while mine is more of a satire on the zephyr song. And i do like the chili peppers a lot as musicians.
Sitting down chilling with Cypress
Hill we thought that we should write this
Song about not being flightless
Listen dude its really righteous
Making no sense when we rhyme - it's true
We can write but not this time

Video is psychedelic
And you know we're not angelic
Our song's dumb but we'll still sell it
Cause we're famous like Tom Selleck
And we've got some good guitar
Our music will get us far

It makes no sense, whatever
We are the Chili Peppers
Our songs make sense like never
We'll be around forever
Buy our CD

Off the make no sense meter
¨By the Way¨ makes no sense either
We can still fill up the bleachers
Of a really big theater
Making no sense when we rhyme - it's true
We can write but not this time

It makes no sense, whatever
We are the Chili Peppers
Our songs make sense like never
We'll be around forever

Well we oughtta put more thought into our writing
But we just don't need to try
We are the Chili Peppers
We'll be around forever

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa - RH
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa - CP
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


It makes no sense, whatever
We are the Chili Peppers
Our songs make sense like never
We'll be around forever


Well we oughtta put more thought into our writing
But we just don't need to try
We are the Chili Peppers
We'll be around forever
Forever

This one was quite good. I would like it a lot if I hated the chilis but to me they're 1 of the best bands in rock history...i think anyway apart from Nirvana. Anyway I still like it and think it's gud, i sang it along with the original and it kinda fitted, gud job dude =)

I agree, I can't make any sense out of Zephyr, but that can be a good thing, it makes you appreciate the music more. And Nad- Chili Peppers are better than Nirvana (so are Pearl Jam)
