"One Big Mob" as written by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, David Navarro and Michael 'flea' Balzary....
(I am you are me)
(I am you are me) good woman said you gotta believe
(I am you are me) submerge into the urge of we
(I am you are me) deliciously the mystery, the mystery

One big mob aw yea aw yea
One big mob aw yea aw yea
Ek bara mala aw yea aw yea
Ek bara mala aw yea aw yea

(One big mob is)
Ooze into into my noodle
East or west shepherd or poodle
Ladybug pine tree to mingle with the bumblebee
A lover to the sun and a brother to the cool breeze

(One big mob is)
One big mob aw yea aw yea
One big mob aw yea aw yea
Ek bara mala aw yea aw yea
Ek bara mala aw yea aw yea

(One big mob is)
We live in the city we live in the jungle
It's time to be drinking a thimble humble
Everything you ever see is never more than you and me
Give it on in to the beauty of the mystery
One big mob is home

One big mob is home a broken home
I'd like to share some air with you some air with you
A morning forest full of truths
The green is blue
The head that's getting pregnant lives to give and give

What was I thinking in my head the color red
Breaking hearts instead of bread
Something I said
Checkmated by frustration now
Need to be cut loose
A different kind of being lost a sullen cost

(I am, you are me)
(I am, you are me) good woman said you gotta believe
(I am, you are me)
(I am, you are me) submerge into the urge of we
(I am, you are me) deliciously
(I am, you are me) the mystery the mystery

One big mob aw yea aw yea
One big mob aw yea aw yea
Ek bara mala aw yea aw yea
Ek bara mala aw yea aw yea

(One big mob is)

Scrawled upon the wall of a bathroom stall
A stranger wrote a note that spoke to all
One, two, buckle my shoe
Take care of me 'cause I might be you

(One big mob is)

One big mob aw yea aw yea
One big mob aw yea aw yea
Ek bara mala aw yea aw yea
Ek bara mala aw yea aw yea

(One big mob is)

Picaboo street in Timbuktu
Do I need repeat
That a boy named Sue
Rockin' to the beat of the kangaroo
Let me kiss your feet and your forehead too

(One big mob is)

    General CommentThe begining of the song which aficianado mentioned: I am you are me. Might be seen from 2 different points of view. 1st is that it means nothing and it is just put together to sound good like lyrics at the begining of I am the Walrus (Beatles) - I am he, As you are he, As you are me, And we are all together. Or the 2nd possibility might be as Ghoelix says all the people of the world - we are the same, we percieve reality the same, we have (almost) the same needs thats why: I am you are me.

    General CommentThis is what I've picked up from the song (my perception has changed from living in another country for 5 months)
    I've just been living in the outback of Australia in a small aboriginal community and one word the idiginous always used in any context was "mob". Your family was your mob, your friends were your mob, anything could belong to a mob, even animals. Flea is from Australia and the song also makes another Australian reference "Rockin' to the beat of a kangaroo" so I recon they are using the word mob as the aboriginals use it as in we're all connected/related.
    One line that I notice no one's talked about is "Breaking hearts instead of bread"
    I really like that line alot, and I think it touches on how we might be all one big mob, related, yet we still hurt each other instead of helping each other (eg, we rob each our neighbours, we beat our kids, we lie to anyone)

    General Commentflea hillel and anthony lived with a bunch of other friends in a house when they were teenagers.. maybe its about that..

    Or maybe its about when anthony lived with blackie and there were a crapload of junkies always over..

    That could be what the 'one big mob in one big home, a broken home' bit means...
