"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

    General CommentThe song is about the Zephyr boys in an area in LA called dogtown in the 70s when modern skateboarding came about. The Z-boys were a group of surfers that when there weren't any waves to surf they would go to sears cut clay wheels off roller blades and drill them into a piece of wood. They had to do this because after skateboards died out in the 60s as just another trend, skateboards were no longer produced. The reason the Z-boys skated was the practice their surfing. They skated with such style and uniqueness that people could not help but want to watch. Being that RHCP are from Cali and generally in the same punk rock skater scene as the Z-boys it makes sense that this song would be about the revolution of skateboarding.

    "Rebellin, a liberator
    Find a way to be a skater
    Rev it up to levitator
    Super friendly aviator
    Take a look its on display - for you
    Coming down no not today"


    At that time skateboarders were looked at as outcasts and anti-social. Skateboarding was a rebellion.

    Also when he says "we'll find a place together" is about them finding a place to surf or skate. As back then skate parks did not exist.

    Hopefully this helped you all! Here's the link to the movie about the Z-boys and the evolution of skateboarding:
