"Minor Thing" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
I change the key from C to D
You see to me it's just a minor thing, yo
He knows everything
To readjust you've got to trust
That all the fuss is just a minor thing
He knows everything
It's just a minor thing
And I'm a minor king
He knows everything (ooh, ooh)

You've got your bit part, Mozart
Hot dart acceleration
Pop art, pistol chasin'
Cat fight intimidation (oh, oh, oh, oh)

To read a mind you've got to
Redefine the line to make your circle sing, yo
He knows everything
You make a sound
The spell is bound to come around
It's just a minor thing, yo

He knows everything
It's just a minor thing
And I'm a minor king
He knows everything

You've got your bit part, Mozart
Hot dart acceleration
Pop art, pistol chasin'
Cat fight intimidation
All out interfacing
Black star motivation
Vampire sugar junkie
Data basin' infiltration

I change the key from C to D
You see to me it's just a minor thing, yo
He knows everything
To readjust you've got to trust
That all the fuss is just a minor thing, yo
He knows everything
It's just a minor thing
And I'm a minor king
It's just a minor thing
And I'm a minor king

    General CommentI'm not sure why no one has commented on this song. I really like it! It's got a really catchy beat that just makes me want to skip to it when I've got the CD in.

    To me, or at least what I can tell, this song is about not sweatin' the small stuff, hence 'it's just a minor thing' :-)

    General CommentI reckon this song is all about how sometimes things seem real hard to do at the time or like they`re gonna make some huge disturbance in your life, but when you look back on life..... it was just a minor thing. Eg: how hard did it seem at the time to finish things with your girlfriend when you were 16? felt like you just wanted to run away and leave it behind rather than facing up to it. Could even be a reference to his drug problems and how that now he`s over them, it all seems like a minor thing?

    General Commentid like to take further what spendog said, i dont know if im right but i think he is saying all this after his death and when he sais "he knows everything" and "you've got to trust" he is speaking about god, although i didnt think Anthony Keidis was religious.
    "you've got your bit part" everyone has their role to play in the world and "im a minor king" every person is special and individual.
    "the spell is bound to come around" means ur life but its "just a minor thing" you shouldnt be too concerned with minor difficulties.
    so i agree with spendog but i think theres more to the song.

    General Commenti agree w/ joey...I don't know that A.K. is religious (in fact, I'm sure he's not) and neither am I, but I think what he's saying here is: we're all just a "minor thing" compared to god or the universe or whatever it is that you believe in...

    General Commentcome on people, its blatently about music. Maybe only on the surface, but still. minor thing as in minor chords. Changing the key from C to D. I think its about the guy he respects as the best in the music business. Mozart reference anyone? "He Knows Everything"
