"Mellowship Slinky in B Major" as written by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, Michael 'flea' Balzary and John Frusciante....
I've got a mellowship, I've got a fellowship
I've got a nonstop "yo swan" hello chip
Born to adore the big bad bison
Thunderstorm and a man like Tyson
Popcorn peanuts lookin' at big butts
No I can not keep my mouth shut
Rockin' to the beat of the fabulous forum
My Lakers I adore 'em
Blush my lady when I tell her
The I do indeed love to smell her
Sopping wet your pink umbrella
Do the dog with Isabella

I'm so in love yes with an artist
Imagination, he's the smartest
Robert Williams, stroke and splatter
I attest to your gray matter
Living kings how true it rings
These are just a few of my favorite things

Good God where's my sleigh
Good God playing for days
Good God any day now
Good God take me away
Good God purple haze
Good God the baddest of brains
Good God any day now
Good God ridin' my sleigh now

Being that I'm the duke of my domain
My hat goes off to Mark Twain
Singing a song about what true men don't do
Killing another creature that's kind of blue
Writing about the world of the wild coyote
Good man Truman Copote
Talking about my throughts 'cuase they must grow
Cock my brain to shoot my load
I'm on the porch 'cause I lost my housekey
Pick up my book I read Bukowski
Can I get another kiss from you
Kiss me right here on my tattoo

Good God where's my sleigh
Good God playing for days
Good God any day now
Good God take me away
Good God DeNiro's insane
Good God rackin' my brain
Good God anyday now
Good God take me away now take me away

Me my friends and the sex machine
Do unto others like my brother Bean
I know you've got a mother
So give her a hug
I know you've got a mother
With a whole lot of love
Billy sings and Basie swings
These are just a few of my favorite things

    General Commentthis song just feels like los angeles to me. I think its just about the things anthony loves about his sprawling, overindulgent highly visual los angeles culture. However, he makes a bunch of artistic references to himself (a song about what true men don't do (kill coyotes)/ the world of the wild coyote) and also to miles davis (kind of blue) and i think the specials (do the dog with isabella) though that last may just be coincidence. He's just showing that he appreciates art in all its forms.

    General CommentYea, it is D minor... but when they first wrote it, it was in B major... The title just didn't sound as good switched, I guess.

    General Comment"the words on this cd arent that good", REALLY?!

    I love the words on this entire album from the hardhitting in-your-face lyrics in Power of Equality, to the more poetic ones in Mellowship Slinky - I reckon they're awesome and along with the music... well... thats what makes this album the best!
