"Fire (Jimi Hendrix cover)" as written by Sylvester Jordan Jr., N. Grier, Curtis James Jackson, Dawaun W. Parker and Andre Romell Young....
Well alright,
Now dig this!

You don't care for me I don't care about that
You got a new fool Hah! I like it like that
I have only one burning desire
Oh, can I make love with your fire?

Let me stand next to your fire
Funky funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire
Funky funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire
Funky funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire
Oh yeah,

Now listen to this baby
And stop acting so crazy

You say your mom ain't home Ain't my concern
Just don't play with me And you won't get burned
I have only one burning desire
Oh, I'm gonna, me, do it in your fire

Let me stand next to your fire
Funky funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire
Oh, funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire
Funky funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire
Oh yeah,

Oh move over over,
And let Mr Huckleberry take over,
You know he's bad, you know he drowns,
You know who he gives it to, yeah!

That's right,
Now dig this!

You try to give me your money
You better save it babe
Save it for your rainy day
I have only one burning desire
Oh, can I make love over your fire?

Let me stand next to your fire
Funky funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire
Funky funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire

Oh, funky fire,
Let me stand next to your fire

You better slide you ass over, girl
Cause I'm coming through once
And I'm coming the way you must be

    General Commentthis is so stupid, I can't believe that this incredible song only has one comment, this is a great song, and the chili peppers do a great job with the cover, is everyone here 13 year old by the way addicts?

    General Commentonce, the chili peppers were playing at woodstock, and they played fire to honor jimi hendrix who had recently died, and they were accused of egging on people who coincedently had started a huge fire that night

    just thought some of you might be interested
