"I Like Dirt" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Some come up and some come young
Live to love and give good tongue
Sit down, get down in the sun
Rocket to the woman is on the one

Well, I like dirt, well, I like dirt, well, I like dirt

The earth is made of dirt and wood
And I'd be water if I could
Live in a dream in your stream
Live in a dream

Some come up and some come young
Live to love and give good tongue
Sit down, get down in the sun
Rocket to the woman is on the one

I like dirt, I like dirt
I like dirt, I like dirt

Some come slow and overload
Must roll over when you're told
Lets unzip and let's unfold
A letter to the pet better get it to go

Well, I like dirt, well, I like dirt, well, I like dirt

Space is made of everything
And I'd be fire that I bring
Live in a dream in your spring
Live in a dream

Some come slow and overload
Must roll over when you're told
Let's unzip and let's unfold
A letter to the pet better get it to go

I like dirt, I like dirt
I like dirt, I like dirt

Some come up and some come young
Live to love and give good tongue
Sit down, get down in the sun
Rocket to the woman is on the one

I like dirt, I like dirt
I like dirt, I like dirt

Some come up and some come young
Live to love and give good tongue
Sit down, get down in the sun
Rocket to the woman is on the one

    General Commentits bout doin it oral ("..A letter to the pet better get it to go ..", meanin stroke his penis to get it to "go". and "...Live to love and girl good tongue..") but in the beginning u just think its bout nature. and the chorus seems like it fits in for a totally different song.
    so wat do we have here...the beginning - nature (havent figured the hidden meaning eyt)
    the chorus - about dirt
    the last verses - some sexual inuendo (some come slow and overload)

    General CommentWell, anal sounds cool.... sureeeeee.... But my friend Brogan, who's this crazy little kid who acts like he's five, whenever he sings this song, we go "I like dirt! I like dirt!" and he goes, "So do worms! so do worms!" and we laugh our asses off for like 15 minutes. But ya, so about the anal. That makes sense, because WORMS like anal 2. You know, worms. PLEASE!

    General Commentok let me go be miss innocent but i think this song really is about..and forgive me for the cheesiness..being one with nature. the chilis, after all, are yoga-practicing vegeterians (ok, minus chad) who believe everyone should love each other. where u got the anal from, i can only wonder. oh and isn't it "give good tongue?"

    General CommentMaybe not anal sex, but just sex in general. Think about it. What's a term to describe something that's full of sexual references? Does the word "dirty" ring a bell?

    And yea, it is "give good tongue," which also begs for the interpretation of "dirty," as does just about every other line in this song.


    Why is everyone always trying to prove that the guys in RHCP are gay?
