She's Only 18 Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (15)



She's only 18
Don't like the Rolling Stones
She took a short cut
To being fully grown

She's got that mood ring
A little sister rose
The smell of Springsteen
A pair of pantyhose

This taling picture show
Is leaking from a silhouette
She said my man you know
It's time to get your fingers wet
Your hustle's busted when
You can't afford a cigarette
The last I heard from you
You were screaming "handle it"

sponsored links
Knock the world right off its feet
And straight onto its head
The book of love will
Long be laughing after you are dead
Fascinated by the look of you
And what was said
Make a play for all the
Brightest minds and light will shed

I heard some P-Funk
Out on the road again
To get your head shrunk
Is what I recommend

It's in your bloodline
A perfect Frankenstein
Out on that lone pine
I'm gonna make you mine

It's understood you wrap
Your voodoo right around my neck
You've got some glitter on your
Kitty at the discotheque
I put my lovin' in your oven
Not a head to check
The last I heard from you
You were screaming "resurrect"

Knock the world right off its feet
And straight onto its head
The book of love will
Long be laughing after you are dead
Fascinated by the look of you
And what was said
Make a play for all the
Brightest minds and light will shed

Knock the world right off its feet
And straight onto its head
The book of love will
Long be laughing after you are dead
Fascinated by the look of you
And what was said
Make a play for all the
Brightest minds and light will shed

brings naughty things back to my memory | Reviewer: Rose | 6/30/13

I was once on the car of this man 16 years older than me, i was 16... he put this song on the stereo and so it began hehe also this song was playing when i gave my first kiss, i feel like it talks to me... cause "i took a short cut to being fully grown", i dont like the stones and sometimes i cant afford a f*cking cigarrette haha

small correction! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/15/12

when it says "This fucking bitch show" i think its actually "this talking picture show".... IDK if im right but i think the lyrics are incredible! Is my correction right? just wondering

about heather | Reviewer: barbara | 11/10/09

this song is totally about heather christie who is his baby's momma and when they started dating she was only 18 (barely) that's exactly what it's about. he likes the rolling stones, she doesn't, etc.

lyrics | Reviewer: andie | 8/13/09

I think that is about the teenagers, and our will to grow up so fast. 'We take short cuts', for being a adults. The song may wants to leave the message that we musn't grow too fsas, couse as a building that is made so fast, and bad, we must to wait every moent. All comes naturally. I think.

meh | Reviewer: Bix Mix | 4/17/08

it matters not what the song is about, it could be a random bunch of lyrics crow barred together though it is less likely with the Chili's. don't try to understand, just feel. hands up all those people that get goose bumps when John Frusciante plays that solo \o/ awesome, a true return to form! RHCP rock hard, fact!!

Meaning | Reviewer: Zach | 2/26/08

What I have read in his book was that he had a very sexual relationship with a girl named jaime they may not make sense to you but most of these songs are about life experieces and about people they met and if animals anthony talks about in his book about he wrote a song about pelican even that he took care of?lol

sense... | Reviewer: Sustain | 9/14/07

Everything makes sense... just work your brain a little bit more... hehe... maybe something about young people very (even a little bit too much) open sexuality? just trying...

urmum | Reviewer: daniel | 9/11/07

"my man you know It's time to get your fingers wet" hahahaha fuckin awesome i love the chili peppers that much

great | Reviewer: didy | 7/4/07

the greatest bend ever with great songs... But there is a problem when you try to understand the songs... something that is made in their head stays there... thats not fair...I think...

ohmygosh | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/23/07

RHCP are like, instant joygasm.

I love them, so much.
Best line in this song is

"The last I heard from you
You were screaming "resurrect"!"

scrumtralescence | Reviewer: Nate Cravens | 6/2/07

Anytime Frusciante belts backup lyrics it makes Kiedis's lyrical presence 11 x more potent ... he sings in an amazingly high range, really sweet shit ... Chili Peppers put me in a euphoric groove ... I love them, favorite band ever :D

RHCP lyrics | Reviewer: Fisi | 5/24/07

Its really nonsense that someone says that RHCP lyrics never make sense I can assure you that more than 90% of the songs are related to members life's. Just another thing that makes RHCP songs awesome are lyrics

She's only 18 | Reviewer: Luke | 5/2/07
