In relation to my last two posts, I decided to pick a Red Hot Chili Pepper’s song for Friday’s Song.

Hollywood, it seems so glamorous. For some of us, it’s the over the rainbow, the place only the lucky get to be. Stardom can be lonely and what we perceive as fabulous can quickly turn into dangerous.

Tell me what you think. Remember, this is intended to be a meme, so if you have  a song you would like to put up direct us to it.  

Happy Friday! 

Tell Me Baby -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 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 wanna go this time oh
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 fifty

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