Havana Affair Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers



Review The Song (14)


PT-boat on the way to Havana
I used to make a living, man
Pickin' the banana.
Now I'm a guy for the CIA
Hooray for the USA!

Baby, baby, make me loco
Baby, baby, make me mambo.

Sent to spy on a Cuban talent show
First stop - Havana go-go
I used to make a living, man
Pickin' the banana
Hooray, for Havana!

Baby, baby, make me loco
Baby, baby, make me mambo

PT-boat on the way to Havana
I used to make a living, man
Pickin' the banana.
Now I'm a guy for the CIA
Hooray for the USA!

Baby, baby, make me a loco
Baby, baby, make me a mambo

here we go!


Sent to spy on a Cuban talent show
First stop - Havana go-go
I used to make a living, man
Pickin' the banana
Hooray for Havana!

Baby, baby, make me loco
Baby, baby, make me mambo

HEY-HO,LET'S GO! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/4/2007

I think RHCP are a good band and they made a cover full of respect for the original, at the same time making it sound their way.But guys, Ramones are goddamned rock'n'roll history!In the '70s rock was dying in boring progressive symphonies or phony stars, and they simply picked up their guitars and showed the world that anyone could do rock,'n'roll.Just 2 chords, honesty, energy, flesh and blood. No one of these so-called punk-rock bands or melodic punk or even hardcore could exist without them.
So when a teen-ager is dancing at a party with the last single by Offspring, or Green Day, or NOFX or even same RHCP he should say a prayer for Joey,Johnny,DeeDee.Ramones rules! Gabba Gabba Hey!



I like all the world | Reviewer: Dorota | 8/26/2007

well, all I can say is: the rhcp's cover is a kind of soft, sweet...but beautyfull "salad". Then, if you ask for my opinion of orginal version...it's punk! Just punk! I love this...as much, as I love everything what is being singed and played by FLEA, JOHN, CHAD & Anthony...I can't tell, that ones are better, and others worse! They are DIFFERENT! 2 big, genius bands...



RHCP | Reviewer: Tranny | 8/17/2007

i luv RHCP and when i first heard the song by them at slane castle, it sounded awesome. Im gonna download the original by the ramones once im uncapped. John F's back-up vocals were awesome.



it's by the Ramones! | Reviewer: cami | 7/4/2007

please put this on the Ramones' page, because it's their song. It's not by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.



LOVE | Reviewer: karen | 6/28/2007

yeh i have to agree, what a great song. Simple, really kinda cute, bouncy, love it. Listen to it on the way 2 school haha, makes it all seem not so bad :P Pickin the Banana!



ramones do it better. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/8/2007

well i must say that the ramones do it much better, don't get me wrong i love red hot chili peppers..... but the ramones just had that sound that made havana affair a punk rock classic........... And by the way for whoever it was that asked this is on the "we're a happy family" cd which has that and a bunch of other ramones covers....... but if you were asking why it hasan't been on a red hot chili peppers cd yet then i can't answer that but maybe somebody else can.



trop beau | Reviewer: ray | 3/15/2007

how come they havent put it on a c.d. yet? its way trop beau



Rock 'n Roll! | Reviewer: Coen Hellwich | 3/7/2007

In my opinion, this song is truly timeless (is that because the ramones are involved??), a very, very strong rock 'n roll sound, make me Loco!



no rhcp w/o ramones ... your an idiot | Reviewer: Hayesss | 2/15/2007

the ramones version sounds like shit? are you 12 years old? Listen to much rock? You need to check out some music my man. They're one of the most important if not one of the best rock bands ever. I love the chili pepppers, but there just a small part of a giant musical history.



amen!! | Reviewer: emily | 2/17/2007

i agree 1000% with bubbe this song really makes me feel so many different emotions at once!! i love that! the chilis are no doubt f**cken fantastic im so glad that there is a band like them around cos i would probably go nuts or not be as nuts as i am now because of them!! bless them!
