"Backwoods" as written by and Michael Peter/kiedis Balzary....
Going to the backwoods to hang out at the fort
Smoking stolen cigarettes from the general store
Maybe we'll go fishing or swimming at the glen
Go flying off the rope string and then back home again

Spend the day half-crazy, like monkeys at the zoo
Sit around complaining, cause there ain't nothing to do
That's when my mom would yell us to go outside and play
And she wouldn't see us home again til the end of the day

Going to the backwoods to hang out at the creek
Catching frogs and lizards, then we set them free
Maybe we'll play kickball or maybe kick the can
Maybe I'll just kick your ass and then kick it again

Spend the day half-crazy, like monkeys at the zoo
Sit around complaining, cause there ain't nothing to do
That's when my mom would yell us to go outside and play
And she wouldn't see us home again til the end of the day

Going to the backwoods to get away from home
There's nothing I like better than sitting there alone
Home in time for dinner:
Corn on the cob
Watermelon for dessert
Just eatin' like a lawnmower
Black sock and
Sandal wearin'
Pool party pushin' the
Potato salad
Slob!
