"Specially in Michigan" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Life is my friend
Rake it up to take it in
Wrap me in your cinnamon
Especially in Michigan
Well I could be your friend

White clouds I'm in
A mitten full of fisherman
C'mon huckleberry finn
Show me how to make her grin
Well I'm in Michigan

Cry me a future
Where the revelations run amok
Ladies and gentlemen
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

A rainy Lithuanian
Who's dancing as an Indian
Painted in my tiger skin
Especially in Michigan

Double chins and bowling pins
Unholy Presbyterians
Land is full of medicine
I find it when I'm slipping in

The tainted new librarian (into Michigan)
Who fainted when she tucked you in
Let's float away like zeppelins
On stoic gusts of northern wind

Cry me a future
Where the revelations run amok
Ladies and gentlemen
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

Out on the farm we'll be
Swimming with the mother duck
Deep in the mitten where
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

Life is my friend
Underwater violins
Order now from ho chi min
A porcelain that comes in twins

Throw me in the looney bin
'Cause I can take it on the chin (when I'm in Michigan)
The cleavage of your pillow skin
Is moving like a violin

Cry me a future
Where the revelations run amok
Ladies and gentlemen
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

Out on the farm we'll be
Swimming with the mother duck
Deep in the mitten where
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck, yeah

    General Commentanniemorr, that is because the correct name of the song is 'Especially in Michigan'. The other comments are to be found there.

    General Commentwow i am so shocked that A.K. actually wrote a song about his birthplace, because it seems that he talks about California so much that he seemed to have forgotten where he came from, so i guess he's just going back to his roots on this song.
