Lyrics to Dani California by Red Hot Chili Peppers

[Verse 1:]
Gettin born in the state of Mississippi
Poppa was a copper and the Momma was a hippie
In Alabama, she would swing a hammer
Price you gotta pay when you break the panorama
She never knew that there was anything more than poor
What in the world, what does your company take me for?

Black Bandanna, Sweet Louisiana
Robbin' on a banks in the state of Indiana
She's a runner, rebel and a stunner
Come in everywhere, saying "Baby, whatcha gonna?"
Looking down the barrel of a hot metal 45
Just another way to survive

[Chorus:]
California, rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California, show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest

[Verse 2:]
She's a lover, baby, and a fighter
Shoulda seen it comin' when it got a little brighter
With a name like "Dani California"
Day was gonna come when I was gonna mourn ya
A little loaded she was stealin' another breath
I love my baby to death

[Chorus:]
California, rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California, show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest

[Bridge:]
Who knew the harder side of you?
Who knew the hardest time to prove
Too true to say goodbye to you
Too true to say, say, say


[Verse 3:]
Push the fader, gifted animator
One for the now and eleven for the later
Never made it up to Minnesota
North Dakota man was a gunnin' for the quota
Down in the badlands she was saving the best for last
It only hurts when I'm left
Gone too fast

[Chorus:]x2
California, rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California, show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest
