    General Commentwhen in the studio doing the album of the same name the peppers were being produced by George Clinton. Flea and the drummer had come up with a funk instrumental which was going to be placed mid album to lead into another track. Clinton thought it too good for this purpose so increased the production and started chanting 'fuck em, just to see the look on their face' over the track which gave birth to the lyrics. The peppers them selves came up with the rest as 'freaky styley' was the bands word for anything they liked whilst they had been touring which also explains the albums title. Thats it, no hidden meaning

    General Comment10 reason why Freaky has the best album cover...

    1.It has the Red Hot Chili Peppers on it.

    2.It has Flea on it in that Superman costume yay!

    3. Anthony is wearing a purple fluffy coat which is cool because i like anything purple and fluffy, I have a purple fluffy seat and guitar strap.

    4. Hillel is on it in that cool poncho

    5. Cliff Martinez is on it and he rules (listen to some Captin Beefheart, I know the guitarist)

    6. there are 3 pairs of converse shoes on the this album.

    7.I can see at least two ass cracks

    8.It's Crazy and Radom just like me

    9. The art work in the background makes no sense

    10. It's the 80's.. you can tell

    General Commentlol the song's lyrics were almost an accident...George Clinton was helping the peppers produce their second albumn (Freaky Styley) and CLinton started chanting the "Funk 'em just to see...blah blah" and Kiedis joined in and that was that.....read Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis...good book..its all in there

    General CommentSince there were no lyrics given in the booklet, and to my knowledge their website doesn't have lyrics (although I'm on a crappy PC right now and their site is too advanced for it so I cannot be 100% certain of that) I believe it's like many of the lyrics AK writes, it could go either way. In the song "BTW" the part where he says "ohhhh ahh..." well live he appears to be saying "push it in her booty" as he does the humping motion, not to mention the gibberish in songs like "Around the world" or "soul to squeeze"
