"The Zephyr Song" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Can I get your hand to write on
Just a piece of leg to bite on
What a night to fly my kite on
Do you want to flash your light on

Take a look
It's on display for you
Coming down
No, not today

Did you meet your fortune teller
Get it off with no propeller
Do it up, it's on with Stella
What a way to finally smell her

Pick it up
If not too strong for you
Take a piece
And pass it on

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

Fly on my wind
Rebel and a liberator
Find a way to be a skater
Rev it up to levitate her
Super friendly aviator

Take a look
It's on display for you
Coming down
No, not today

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We'll find a place together

(Whoa) whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa - do you
(Yeah) yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Whoa) whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa - want to
(Yeah) yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We're gonna live forever

Forever

    My InterpretationYou all disappoint me. Its the classic meaning within a meaning within an appearance.

    One first assumes, upon listening to this song, that Anthony is in love. Once the listener thinks about the song they realize that it doesn't quite match. Most people believe that the meaning is then, simply, Cocaine, Weed, or whatever.

    That is untrue, at least in my own eyes it is.

    Personally, is a very vague song about organized Prostitution. Which the point of veiw goes from the buyer to the pimp regularly.

    Hand to write on ; To give the prostitute the offer to give to the 'Pimp'

    Do you want to flash your light on? ; A reference to 'Roxxane' in which he is asking to turn on that red light.

    Take a look its on Display ; The pimp is showing off his 'goods'

    Coming down no not today ; The buyer chooses a 'product' that is unavailable that particular way.

    Did you meet your fortune teller ; In this case, the fortune teller is the pimp. Instead of fortune being luck it is implied as the monetary value.

    Get ... Propeller ; No beating around the bush. Or dancing in circles. In other-words the buyer cuts to the chase...

    You should be able to get the rest of the story on your own.
