"Readymade" as written by and Oliver Jao Smith....
Readymade, readymade
Steady as the rhythm rolls
Readymade, readymade
And this is how the story goes

I've gotta cousin making beats
Deep down in Arizona
We're gonna rocket to Ramone's
In the city of Pomona, go

Readymade, readymade
Steady as the rhythm rolls
Readymade, readymade
And this is how the story goes

And if I give to you my second sight
You got it
And if I stay the course I'll stay the night
Come get it

Readymade, readymade
Baby oughta celebrate
Readymade, readymade
And now it's time to deviate

I've gotta sister making babies
With a black and decker blow torch
We're gonna fop it all night
In the middle of the back torch, yeah

Readymade, readymade
Baby oughta celebrate
Readymade, readymade
And now it's time to deviate

And if I give to you my second sight
You got it
And if I stay the course I'll stay the night
Come get it

Readymade, readymade
Rockin' for the sake of Slade
Readymade, readymade
Listen but don't be afraid

I've gotta brother making trouble
In the state of California
I wish I knew another way
But I'm gonna have to clone you, hey

Readymade, readymade
Rockin' for the sake of Slade
Readymade, readymade
Listen but don't be afraid

And if I give to you my second sight
You got it
And if I stay the course I'll stay the night
Come get it

    General CommentOne of the best songs of stadium arcadium, johns giutar work has improved heaps, you'll notice a lot of awesome riffs, solos, licks throughout the album and not just in this song

    General Commenta great song, ur right, John's work is great on the album, and Flea still great as ever.

    good work, but a few corrections on the lyrics...

    readymade ready made,
    steady as a river 'ROLLS'

    i gotta brother....
    'we're gonna rock it to Ramone's in the city of pamono'


    'second sight' not sacred sigh

    'baby oughta celebrate' not getting out to celebrate

    'rockin' for the sake of slade not for the circus slave

    'listen but dont be afraid' not tell them now the love to save

    'caledonia' not california and 'but i'm gonna have to clone ya' not gonna let it all out...sedona

    as i said, good try though

    General CommentI love the solo by John.. otherwise it's not a very good song. The word readymade is used too much.

    General CommentI love this song, and it's fun to play. I think when Anthony tells him to clean it up, it's hilarious, and a good touch.

    Great song.

    General Commentwell....
    we're gonna rocket to ramone's in the city of Pamona.

    well anyways im lazy and im not gonna touch all the mistakes.
    i think this song is talking about someone whose family is all running off doing different things that are not all good,

    "sister making babies with a black and decker blow torch"

    and this guy doesnt want his last bro or sis to leave and do the same thing so he says i's gonna have to clone ya."
