"Battle Ship" as written by Jack Sherman, Cliff Martinez, Anthony Kiedis and Michael Peter Balzary....
Three miles off the coast of Beirut
New Jersey's guns get ready to shoot
Take a walk down the firing room
Fire one it's shakedown cruise

Battle ship battle ship

See the sailor boys dressed in blue
Cheer the change to make the news
Send the shell down the spiral groove
Bombs away it's a shakedown cruise Yeah

Battle ship battle ship

    General Commentwell. this is a bit explicit but its true. lsten to the chorus very carefully. its not battle ship battle ship as said above. its actually what the song was originally going to be called. 'Blow job park'. that kinda adds new meaning doesnt it?

    General Commentisnt fiddly flea a big noob i mean he really musnt know anything bout the chilis. thats blatantly a metaphor. maybe fiddly flea should listen more and more closely-imagine calling himself a real chilis fan and taking the name of the holy flea!

    General Commentdid you know. that paddy from cambourne. well. its embarrassing but i feel you should know. he worships busted. its tragic. we had to put him down poor fella. seriously tho, that thing bout blow job park is true. they were'nt allowed to call it that, like they originally were'nt allowed to call Party On Your Pussy. They had to call it Special Secret Song Inside. hows that for a chili fan? paddy? u rat bastard.

    General Commentit was called battleship because the record company didn't want to release a song with such a name.
