All around the world, we could make time
Rompin' and a-stompin' 'cause I'm in my prime
Born in the North and sworn to entertain ya
'Cause I'm down for the state of Pennsylvania
I try not to whine, but I must warn ya
'Bout the motherfuckin' girls from California
Alabama baby said, "Hallelujah"
Good God, girl, I wish I knew ya

I know, I know for sure
That life is beautiful around the world
Well, I know, I know it's you
You say, "Hello" and then I say, "I do"

Come back, baby, 'cause I'd like to say
I've been around the world, back from Bombay
Fox hole love, pie in your face
Livin' in and out of a big fat suitcase
Bonafide ride, step aside, Mike Johnson
Yes, I could, in the woods of Wisconsin
Wake up the cake, it's a lake, she's kissin' me
As they do when they do in Sicily

I know, I know for sure
That life is beautiful around the world
Well, I know, I know it's you
You say, "Hello" and then I say, "I do"

Where you wanna go? Who you wanna be?
What you wanna do? Just come with me
Oh, I saw God and I saw the fountains
You and me, girl, sittin' in the Swiss mountains
Me, oh my, oh, me and Guy O
Freer than a bird 'cause we're rockin' Ohio
Around the world, I feel dutiful
Take a wife 'cause life is beautiful

I know, I know for sure
Ding, dang, dong, dong, ding, ding, dong, dong, ding, dang
Well, I know, I know it's you
Ding, dang, dong, dong, ding, ding, dong, dong, ding, dang
Mother Russia, do not suffer, I know you're bold enough
I've been around the world and I have seen your love
Well, I know, I know it's you
You say, "Hello" and then I say, "I do"

    General CommentI think every single song on Californication is good, even porcelin. It has a good message and has it's own mood. But this song in particular is about a guy who meets girls all around the world and falls in love with them so easily (You say hello and then I say I do)! I never really noticed what it meant until this summer when I had similar experiences in Ontario. Then while listening to this song it all fell into place!

    General CommentI wouldn't mind to be with Anthony! He is gorgeous. I have a b/f and I won't be with A.K. but he is good to admire (as a person and a face.) I just really like the flow of the song. Singing it kicks this oo ( thats a butt...)
    Luv y'all! ~*~Tessa~*~

    General Commentpinkeye7....for ur information, john hasnt done drugs since he rejoined the band (before by the way album), anthony's been sober for three years (and yes, sober means drugs not just alcohol), flea has never been an addict anyway, and chad just drinks alcohol. They all smoke cigerettes, and thats it.

    And none of them are ugly. If ur gonna make a comment like that, check out ur facts first for fucks sake! doh!

    this song, and the band, kick ass!

    General Commentyea its just overall about antthony sleeping with thousands of women around the world. i rememebr i saw this thing a while back and it was with anthony, flea and jack irons (there drummer bakc in the 80s) and anthony was talking about how he slept with the most beautiful "noreweign" gilr the other night. he was like-"and she was just so gorgours and we had some sort of orgasmic kind of feel we spent 3 days in bed. it was really great..." so my point im trying to make is he has slept with girls from all over the world just like "norweign" girl...adn this song is about that.
