Red Hot Chili Peppers - Mother's Milk: Wikipedia Album Entry
Mother's Milk is the fourth studio album by American funk rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was released on August 16, 1989. It has sold 2 million copies and certified double-platinum. Mother's Milk peaked at #52 on Billboard Top 200 album chart and it was certified gold by mid-1990 and platinum in 2005.
The album produced three singles: "Knock Me Down", "Higher Ground" and "Taste the pain".
Though Mother's Milk is quite highly celebrated in the Red Hot Chili Pepper's fanbase, the band members have more than once expressed their mild dislike of the album. With the exception of The Jimi Hendrix Experience cover "Fire", none of Mother's Milk has been played live during the band's recent career.
In 2003, a remastered version of the album was released, including several unheard bonus tracks.

Step right up and listen please
You're gonna get it with the greatest of ease
Well, well everybody gather around
All aboard the underground
L.A. Lakers, fast break makers
Kinds of the court shake and bake all takers
Back to back is a bad ass fact a claim that remains in tact
Hair so smooth, black as coal
Oh, baby, the way you sway
You wear the dress so very blue
That you take my blues away
I'm a radio joe of the biz called show
I'm a rockin' pop star with a get up and go
Rubbing elbows with the big wigs at my sold out shows
I've been on every cover, even Rolling Stone
The freakiest show I know
Is the show of my own
Living my life in and out
Of the twilight zone
She's stone cold bush yea
And baby that's alright
She's stone cold bush yea
And that's alright with me
Indeed it may seem that we have strange ways
But we do it with compassion and don't believe in age
Travel 'round the world gettin' naked on the stage
Bustin' people out of their everyday cage
