"Turn It Again" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Some of us get a little
And some a lot
We've got to make due
With what ever we got
We get it hot we cool it down
And then we pass it around

You can dance
For the sake of a golden day
Take a chance on getting rid
Of whatever's in your way
Next stop big hop
It's turning night into day

Sometimes when
I'm lying there all alone
I think of every little nothing
That we could own
To overthrow all of you
Who have overgrown

All my friends
Like to spend
Days on end
On the mend
I turn to you
I turn into
And then I turn it again

Here we go
All we know
Heavy load
Start to float
Without a doubt
We turn it out
And then we turn it again, woo

I've come to learn
Whatever time I can find to spend
Taking flight into
Whatever light we bend
Out on the street
I get a beat and then
I turn it to ten

Lace boots and the
Ladies of Kazakhstan
Kick 'em high to the sky
All of this just because we can
I turn to Cuba
Then Aruba then the Dominican

All my friends
Like to spend
Days on end
On the mend
I turn to you
I turn into
And then I turn it again

Here we go (two things I want to say now)
All we know
Heavy load (you make it all okay now)
Start to float
Without a doubt (I need to know that you are there)
We turn it out
And then we turn it again

We've got to move it
If we want to do our best
We've got to shake it
If we want to keep it fresh

I'm turning down
All the heavy psychology
To cut a rug
And I make no apology
I turn a cheek
I turn a key
And then I turn it for free

We've got to move it
Just a little to hit the spot
A whirling dervish in a flurry
A fox to trot
Come clown around
A robot
Doin' the astronaut

All my friends
Like to spend
Days on end
On the mend
I turn to you
I turn into
And then I turn it again

Here we go (two things I want to say now)
All we know
Heavy load (you make it all okay now)
Start to float
Without a doubt (I need to know that you are there)
We turn it out
And then we turn it again

    General CommentI like this song a lot.

    It was interesting here John talking about it. He says that during the verses Flea is playing the same chords over and over, and he is playing different chords, THEN, during the chorus, Flea is playing different chords, and he is playing the same chords over and over.

    He says he noticed this after they finished the song. I'll have to look at the DVD again tho to put down the meaning.

    General Commentjeez this song is amazing, like how is it even possible for a song to be this good
    it kind of seems like it's about the chilis keeping their youth and being ok with that..they don't have to really grow up anytime soon, and its better to keep their youth than to be like people that have "overgrown"

    General CommentGod I fucking love this song, Frusciante said he was really influenced by hendrix on this album, and you can really hear it on this song. The solo is pure hendrix influence... Everytime I put this song on by then end I'm totally bouncin around rockin out. There's so much feeling put into this song especially by frusciante, I dont see how you can not be moved by it. The lyrics are great too, to mee it's just about the highs and lows we all gotta deal with, you just got keep going "and turn it again"

    General Commentthis is my favourite song by chilis ever.
    as for the meaning... it seems to me to be about every individual person on the quest for power, with its ups and downs everyone fails then succeeds and thats the way it is, and the chilis say thats ok and they dont give a shit, so they write a song about it.

    General Commenti think its awesome how the verse sounds like talking heads... my favorite song on the album by far, seriously, how is it possible for something that you listen to to generate so much freakin energy? awesome.

    General CommentHa after i heard THAT solo i made the mistake of trying to learn it on my guitar ...... my how stupid i felt afterwards haha

    Awesome song without a doubt! I only wish that they had ended the album with this song instead of Death Of A Martian, but then again i don't think i'm worthy to question any decision made by these men :D
