"Rickshaw" as written by and Josh Homme....
Don't plan on marrying baby
I'll get you what you need
Not too far to go on
Not too far to bleed

You can ask for pims in your head
You can ask for symmetrical planning
You can ask for tortuous membrane
You can ask for orange juice frozen

Oh you

You can ask for any old woman
You can ask for an army of ants
You can ask for a pillar of poison
You can ask for sheep and shavers

And you can die for
Be careful what you wish for
Be careful what you wish for

    General CommentIt might be about how rich you are/feel when you come to for example bangladesh, that you can get anything you want for money, and you should be careful what you wish for. The rickshaw would be the symbol for all of this, i imagine you feel wealthy when you sit in a chair and someone is moving you around..

    General Commentone line is wrong its "you can ask for pills in your head".............. and the song is about how some people in America have too many materialistic things. especially the rich who have so many things that they don't even use or need. Homme is saying you can have everything in the world and ask for more and more but it wont make you happy and it can kill your perspective and outlook on life and who you really are because you wont appreciate anything anymore because you are used to having everything you want.

    Lyric CorrectionDon't let them bury you baby
    I'll get you what you need
    Not too far to go on
    Not too to far to bleed

    You can ask for pins in your hair
    You can ask for symmetrical planing
    You can ask for torturous membrane
    You can ask for orange juice frozen

    Oh you
    Ah

    You can ask for any old woman
    You can ask for an army of ants
    You can ask for a pillar of poison
    You can ask for sheep and shavers

    And you can die for
    Be careful what you wish for
    Be careful what you wish for
