"Storm in a Teacup" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Come on come on baby
Let me show you what I'm talking about (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
You try to be a lady
But your walkin' like a sour kraut (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
Looka looka lika lika
Like you want to get some (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
If you never tell a lie
Then you never have to play dumb (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)

Dirty baby time you're gonna take some
Pretty baby love you're gonna make some
Little lady hearts you're gonna break some
Kinda shady tears you're gonna fake some

Dirty baby we've got a situation
Pretty baby open invitation
Little lady what a reputation
Kinda shady now you're gonna make again

I know you can straddle
The atmosphere
A tiny storm in your teacup girl
I know you can battle the
Masses, dear
A tiny storm in your teacup girl

Every other day you say
You're gonna have to bury 'em (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
Famous last words
Spoken from the laserium (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
Descendants had to record
Sayin' somethin' 'bout Milo (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)
You can take the a train
But you're gonna have to lie low (whoop-tay-whoop-tay-git-ta-gala-goop-ta)

I know you can straddle
The atmosphere
A tiny storm in your teacup girl
I know you can battle the
Masses, dear
A tiny storm in your teacup girl

Dirty baby time you're gonna take some
Pretty baby love you're gonna make some
Little lady hearts you're gonna break some
Kinda shady tears you're gonna fake some

Dirty baby we've got a situation
Pretty baby open invitation
Little lady what a reputation
Kinda shady now you're gonna make again

I know you can straddle
The atmosphere
A tiny storm in your teacup girl
I know we may never get
Out of, here
A tiny storm in your teacup girl

    General Commentat the beginning: "oh good god in heaven almighty, somethin somethin we've got a cataclysmic situation developing, somebody get down here now!"cant quite make out the beginning of the second line
    at 1:30: "oh god, oh no, oh no, it's getting worse, worse by the minute, uh-uh-uh we're down here at the vision in mystery?(wth?), somebody send for back up right now!"ya, um, im pretty sure part of thats wrong...
    well, this might be my favorite song on stadium arcadium, and it does sound like ak's the one doing the talking parts since it sounds like his speaking voice, which is much different than his singing voice.but idk maybe not.
    anyone who wants to make corrections on that please feel free

    General Commentoh, and "you try to be a lady but you're walkin' like a sour kraut" is the best nonsense lyric on all of stadium arcadium.

    General CommentAt 1:30, it sounds like he is saying "We're down here at something (division?) and 5th street", like a street intersection, instead of "We're down here at the vision in mystery"

    However, I'm wondering what is said in between the lines of the verses. It sounds sort of like "Whoopty whoop, to get you gotta ________(something...)"
    Anyone have any ideas?

    General CommentAnd the opening part I believe goes like this...
    "Oh good God in heaven almighty, heavens to murder Troy, we've got a cataclysmic situation developing, somebody get down here now!"

    General CommentDisasterArea: it's not "heavens to murder Troy", it's "heavens to Murgatroid", which was apparently the catchphrase of an old cartoon character named Snagglepuss.

    As for the song itself - I'm likin' it, I must say. One of the best on Stadium Arcadium, and very catchy.
