Californi-What?
Parody of: "Californication" by Red Hot Chili Peppers (M. Balzary, J. Frusciante, A. Kiedis, C. Smith)
New lyrics by: John Holland
Author's Note: I had a lot of fun finding all the "ation" words. Some of it doesn't make much sense, but that's the whole point, right? Oh, by the way, "felicitation" (5th verse, 2nd line) means "to congratulate"...it's not some bodily function, if that's what you were thinking...

Chinese spies you know those guys
Come from a Commie nation
Little girls from Sweden
Get their Scandinaviation
But only Hollywood can make
The Californication

Farmers in the Andes
Help spread the Bolivication
Refugees from the Kosovo Seas
Deal with Macedoniation
But wait they don't have a coast
I guess that's Californication

But what exactly is this thing that
They call Californication
Where's it from? Was it created
By the Chili Pepper Nation?

I'll do my best
To solve this quest.......tion
What is Californication?
What is Californication?

Charles Schwab put out an ad
With commercialization
Ringo Starr he went too far
In rhyming with "elation"
Now I have the same problem
With Californication

Negotiation, invasion, and recapitulation
Moderations, libations, and warm felicitations
And if you rhyme them all at once
It's called "versification"

Rhyming all these "ations" and still
Making sense is tough
I never thought that writing our nineteenth
Hit song would be this rough

Man this is hard
I feel like lard
Think of a word that ends in "ation"
Think of a word that ends in "ation"
Think of a word that ends in "ation"
Think of a word that ends in "ation"

Last year I moved to San Francisco
And I don't feel any different
Silicon Valley and all that jazz
It didn't leave a single imprint
And then I invented the mp3
It's Californication

But what exactly is this thing
That they call Californication
I suspect it's the effect
Of L.A. on United Nations

That makes no sense
My brain is hence
Guess that's Californication
Guess that's Californication
Guess that's Californication
Guess that's Californication
