The Lyrics

The RHCP are okay in my book. I thought of the first few lines a long time ago. it took me a long time to get around to finishing it.

its supposed to be about how the RHCP are always shirtless. i hope it makes sense to everyone.
Sometimes I feel
Like I don't have a shirt on
Sometimes I feel
Like my only clothes
Are the pants that I live in
The pants that im wearin'
They hide my pee-pee
Together we walk

I drive in my car
'Cause it sure beats walking
I take off my shirt
For picking up chicks
The girls see my tatts
And they give me their numbers
I never get laid
Now that is a lie

I don't ever want to feel
Like I'm wearing a shirt
Take off my shirt for me
Take it off all the way

It's hard to spend a whole day
Wearing the same shirt
It's hard to wear polyester
When its covered in sweat
At least I can go shirtless
And the chicks will love me
Skins versus shirts
Its my new style

I don't ever want to feel
Like my chest can't breathe
Take my shirt off now
Shirtless all the way

(fade out)

Really cool concept, being a big fan of theirs I see the humor in writing about them shirtless. However it gets a little repetative by the ending.

I thought about it, and you are right. RHCP is always shirtless. It's fantastically, dementedly true. You faded too early though.... * * * * * * All time! Underneath my shirt My tatts can't breathe Underneath my shirt my tatts feel squeezed Underneath my shirt Oh, throw my shirt away! (Throw) it Away!!!! Away!!!! (fade)
