It must have been your funny face
It must have been your laugh
It must have been your paper chase that
Wasn't quite enough

It must have been your tiny dance that
Made me laugh out loud
Must have been your angel dust that
Put me on your cloud

You're the reason why.....
You're the reason I.....

It must have been your love
It must have been your love..... I said
It must have been your love..... In a little bit.....
It must have been your love

It must have been your poppy eyes
That made me step outside
It must have been the sight of tears that
Let me know I cried

It must have been your bunny shake
It must have been your love
A lot of girls won't come around they
Treat me like a wolf

It must have been your love
It must have been your love..... I said
It must have been your love..... I gotta get that
It must have been your love

You're my angel baby
You're my darling
You're my star
Lo lo lo lolita
Let her see me deep in love

You're the reason why.....
You're the reason I.....

It must have been your love
It must have been your love..... now
It must have been your love.....
It must have been your love

You're my angel baby
You're my darling
You're my star
Lo lo lo lolita
Let her see me deep in love

lopsided eyes and a crooked frown
Make more of life, just settle down
Every single little princess needs a crown
Make more of life, just settle down

    General CommentAwesome song by the Chilis (as always) with a rad reggae feel to it :D

    Lyrically my first impression is that its just a plain and simple love song :)

    General CommentGreat song, I think it's just a love song too (swear to god, if anyone says it's about drugs...)

    hahah but it seems like anthony kiedis might be thinking about getting hitched, the tone of the song and also the lines "Every single little princess needs a crown / make more of life just settle down"
    make me think he's talking marriage, but who knows. Great feel to it, this song makes me really happy. Keep on rocking Chili Peppers!

    General CommentI'm intrigued by the childishness of this song.

    The first thing that jumped out at me was the line "Lo lo lo lolita," in reference to the Nabokov novel. Is this "little princess" just a child-like woman, as I am inclined to think? Or does this song maybe (just to play the Devil's advocate for a brief moment here) indulge in a bit of lyrical pedophilia?

    He likes this girl because of her "funny face," her "laugh," her "paper chase," her "poppy eyes" and "tears," her "bunny shake"...

    And she's his "angel baby," his "darling," his "star Lolita"?

    Though I don't think the RHCPs are pedophiles, I certainly wouldn't put them beyond some flirting with sexual perversion.

    General Commenti really like this song and it always puts a smile on my face. it's just a cheerful love song. i think it;s clearly just about anthony's new found love and how much he appreciates her " A lot of girls won't come around they
    Treat me like a wolf" he seems so happy and in love. the "it must have been" choruses are about how he fell in love with her. her name's Heather and he makes references her throughout the new album. i love the "oh ohoh uhuh uhuh uhuh baby etc."

    General CommentI love this song so much!! Always manages to cheer me up!! I think it's a love song, about Heather. Possibly. And I agree with soulbridefreakette that its "lopsided eyes and crooked frown". Amazing song! This should have been on SA.

    General CommentIt's probably about Heather(Ak's girl), and the fact she is so much younger than he is.

    I'm guess the sentence "Let her see me deep in love" is "Little seen me deep in love"

    General CommentLOVE this song! The reggae vibe, the words, its just a beautiful love song, and i love the lyric about girls treating him like a wolf. He has a bit of a rep with the ladies but this girl sees beyond that. He says it must have been...like he wasn't aware he had fallen for her, bless him.
