"Hard to Concentrate" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Hustle, bustle and so much muscle, aww
Cells about to separate
And I find it hard to concentrate and

Temporary this cash and carry
I'm stepping up to indicate
The time has come to deviate and

All I want is for you to be happy and
Take this moment to make you my family and
Finally you have found something perfect and
Finally you have found

Death defying this mess I'm buying
It's raining down with love and hate
And I find it hard to motivate and

Estuary is blessed but scary your
Heart's about to palpitate
And I'm not about to hesitate and

One to treasure the rest of your days here and
Give you pleasure in so many ways dear and
Finally you have found something perfect and
Finally you have found
Here we go

Do you want me to show up for duty and
Serve this woman and honor her beauty and
Finally you have found something perfect and
Finally you have found
Yourself

With me, will you, agree, to take
This man, into your world
And now, we are as one

My lone ranger the heat exchanger
Is living in this figure eight
And I'll do my best to recreate and

Sweet precision and soft collision, aww
Hearts about to palpitate
And I find it hard to separate and

All I want is for you to be happy and
Take this woman and make you my family and
Finally you have found someone perfect and
Finally you have found

All I want is for you to be happy and
Take this woman and make you my family and
Finally you have found someone perfect and
Finally you have found
Yourself

    General CommentFor those asking if it's a synthesizer they're using in this song, it isn't. Frusciante first mutes the guitar on clean, then slowly turns up the volume knob after strumming the chord. That prevents the twang of the pick strum when performing the chord. That's how the synth-like sound is created and it's actually pretty simple to do with a Fender Stratocaster

    General CommentGee, I`m glad you all had figured out that the song is about marriage, but not only. And its not about drugs, sorry, its not. Not every song by former drug-addicts is about drugs. I think its pretty clear that it`s about REPRODUCING as well.
    I mean, come on,
    "Hustle, bustle, and, so much muscle aww
    Cells about to separate

    And, estuary is, blessed but scary
    Heart�s about to palpitate
    Now, I�m not about to hesitate

    My lone ranger
    The, heat-exchanger
    Is, living in this figure eight
    Now I do my best to recreate
    And, sweet precision
    And, soft collision aww
    Heart�s about to palpitate
    Now I find it hard to separate"

    Yep. Its all about sex. I hope you all studied biology once upon a time.
    And its a brilliant song, I have to tell. I`ve never heard something so full of sex and so beautiful and soft
    Long live the RHCP, eh^^
