Give It Away
Red Hot Chili Peppers


What I've got you've got to give it to your moma,
What I've got you've got to give it to your papa,
What I've got you've got to give it to your daughter,
Then you do a little dance and then you drink a little water.

What I've got you've got to get it put it in you,
What I've got you've got to get it put it in you,
What I've got you've got to get it put it in you,
Reeling with the feeling don't stop continue.

Realize I don't wanna be a miser,
Confide with Sly you'll be the wiser,
Young blood is the lovin'up riser,
How come ev'rybody wanna keep it like the Kaiser?

CHORUS 1 : Give it away, give it away, give it away now! (x3)
I can't tell if I'm a king or a pauper!

Greedy little people in a sea of distress,
Keep your more to receive your less,
Unimpressed by material excess,
Love is free, love me, say « Hell yes! »

I'm a lowbrow but I rock a little know-how,
No time for the piggies or the hoosegow,
Get smart, get down with the pow-wow,
Never been a better time than right now.

Bob Marley, poet and a prophet,
Bob Marley, taught me how to off it,
Bob Marley walkin' like he talk it,
Goodness me can't you see I'm gonna cough it?

+CHORUS 2 : Give it away, give it away, give it away now! (x3)
Oh, oh yeah!
Give it away, give it away, give it away now! (x3)
I can't tell if I'm a king-pin or a pauper!
+ SOLO 1

Lucky me swimmin' in my ability,
Dancin' down on life with agility,
Come and drink it up from my fertility,
Blessed with a bucket of lucky mobility.

My mom, I love her 'cause she love me,
Long gone are the times when she scrub me,
Feelin' good, my brother gonna hug me,
Drink my juice young love, chug-a-lug me.

There's a river born to be a giver,
Keep you warm, won't let you shiver,
His heart is never gonna wither,
Come on everybody time to deliver.

+ CHORUS 3 : Give it away, give it away, give it away now! (x3)
I can't tell if I'm a king or a pauper!

+ SOLO 2 + VERSE 1

+ CODA : Give it away, give it away, give it away now! (x4)
Give it away now! Give it away now! (X10)
Give it away...now!
