    Default idioms in lirycs

    Hi
    welcome all members im new .I never practice english in school .
    i i dont stand idomsin this one text - red hot chili peppers
    its can be funy idea for all - learning by music

    ,,Dani california.,rhcp

    Gettin' born in the state of Mississippi
    Papa was a copper and mama was a hippie
    In Alabama she would swing a hammer
    Price you gotta pay when you pick the panorama
    She never knew that there was anything more than poor
    What in the world? What does your company take me for?

    Black bandana , sweet Louisiana
    Robbin' on a bank in the state of Indiana
    She's a runner, rebel and a stunner
    Oh her merry way sayin' baby whatcha gonna
    Lookin' down the barrel of a hot metal forty five
    Just another way to survive

    [Chorus:]
    California rest in peace
    Simultaneous release
    California show your teeth
    She's my priestess, I'm your priest, yeah, yeah

    She's a lover baby and a fighter
    Shoulda seen her coming when it got a little brighter
    With a name like Dani California
    Day was gonna come when I was gonna mourn ya
    A little loaded, she was stealin' another breath
    I love my baby to death

    [Chorus]

    Who knew the other side of you?
    Who knew what others died to prove?
    Too true to say good bye to you
    Too true to say say say...

    Push the fader, gifted animator
    One for the now and eleven for the later
    Never made it up to Minnesota
    North Dakota man was a gunnin' for the quota

    Down in the badlands she was savin' the best for last
    It only hurts when I laugh
    Gone too fast...

    [Chorus 2x]
    Best regards from Christopher

    Oh they sound kind of crazy
    But theyíre sure lots of fun,
    When we talk to one another
    And use idioms.

    We know what they mean,
    But they donít mean what they say.
    Oh those idioms,
    We hear them every day.

    Hey, teacher thereís a frog in my throat.
    Iím as busy as a bee.
    Thatís no skin off my nose.
    You might be barking up the wrong tree.

    My mom has a heart of gold.
    This jobís a piece of cake.
    Somethingís fishy Iíve been told.
    Donít take me on a wild goose chase.

    CHORUS

    My dad has a big green thumb.
    Heís always pulling my leg.
    Youíd better hold your tongue.
    And my best friend is a really good egg.

    Sometimes I have ants in my pants.
    And the early bird catches the worm.
    Letís put on our thinking caps.
    Itís really fun to learn.

    That they sound kind of crazy,
    But theyíre sure lots of fun,
    When we talk to one another
    And use idioms.

    We know what they mean,
    But they donít mean what they say.
    Oh those idioms,
    We hear them every day.
