Red Hot Chili Peppers – By The Way lyrics

Standing in line to see the show tonight,
And there's a light on,
Heavy glow.
By the way I tried to say I'd be there,
Waiting for.
Dani the girl is singing songs to me,
Beneath the marquee,
Overload.

Steak knife.
Card Shark.
Con job.
Boot cut.

Skin that flick, she's such a little dj.
Get there quick by street but not the freeway.
Turn that trick to make a little leeway.
Beat that nic but not the way that we play.

Dog town.
Blood bath.
Rib cage.
Soft tail.

Standing in line to see the show tonight,
And there's a light on,
Heavy glow.
By the way I tried to say I'd be there,
Waiting for.

Black jack.
Dope dick.
Pawn shop.
Quick pick.

Kiss that dyke, I know you want to hold one.
Not on strike, but I'm about to bowl one.
Bite that mic, I know you never stole one.
Girls that like a story so I told one.

Song bird.
Main line.
Cash back.
Hard top.

Standing in line to see the show tonight,
And there's a light on,
Heavy glow.
By the way I tried to say I'd be there,
Waiting for.
Dani the girl is singing songs to me,
Beneath the marquee... Of her soul.

By the way I tried to say I'd be there,
Waiting for.

Ooh ahh, guess you never meant it.
Ooh ahh, guess you never meant it.
Ooh ahh, guess you never meant it.
Ooh ahh, guess you never meant it.
Ooh ahh, guess you never meant it.
Ooh ahh, guess you never meant it.
Ooh ahh, guess you never meant it.
Ohh ahh.

Standing in line to see the show tonight,
And there's a light on,
Heavy glow.
By the way I tried to say I'd be there,
Waiting for.
Dani the girl is singing songs to me,
Beneath the marquee,
Of her soul.
By the way I tried to say I know you,
From before
Standing in line to see the show tonight,
And there's a light on,
Heavy glow.
By the way I tried to say I'd be there,
Waiting for.
