H is for Happy Song

Ever since I was a teenager I've had a happy song. This song is one that I can listen to no matter what my mood and smile. I don't think it's actually that big of a stretch to say that the song has saved my life. What's the song you ask? Why it is Around the World from the Red Hot Chili Peppers album, Californication. There is just an energy and positivity in this song that keeps me up.


Red Hot Chili Peppers - Around the World

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
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
Living in and out
Of a big fat suitcase

Bonafide ride
Step aside my 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
When they do in Sicily

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

Where you want to go
Who you want to be
What you want to do
Just come with me

I saw God
And I saw the fountains
You and me girl
Sittin' in the Swiss mountains

Me Oh My O
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, deng, deng, dong, dong, ding, dang.
I know I know it's you
Ding, dang, dong, dong, deng, deng, 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
I know I know it's you

You say hello then I say I do

  1. Nice choice. The Chili Peppers have a pretty long list of songs that can make you feel good. Of their popular stuff (which is really all I'm that familiar with), I'd say it's their "darker" songs (Under the Bridge, Soul to Squeeze) that I'm more drawn to...but even listening to those puts me in a good mood.

    1. I love most of their stuff, serious and silly. This song in particular just gets me pumped though (and not just because it mentions Ohio).
