Fire is a Jimi Hendrix song that the band covered in 1987 and was released as the b-side to the "Fight Like a Brave" single and in The Abbey Road E.P. in 1988. After Hillel Slovak died and Jack Irons left the band, the band went on to record their fourth album (Mother's Milk) with new guitarist John Frusciante and drummer Chad Smith, and they decided to re-release the cover as the ninth track in the album as a tribute to Slovak. A promo video was also released featuring the band performing the song live at Provinssi Rock Festival in Törnävä, Seinäjoki, Finland on June 4, 1988, which was the last concert in which Slovak performed with the band before his death. The song and the video were included in the 1992 CD/DVD compilation album What Hits!?.

LyricsEdit

Well alright,
Now dig this!

You don't care for me I don't care about that
You got a new fool Hah! I like it like that
I have only one burning desire
Oh, can I make love with your fire?

Let me stand next to your fire
Fire fire fire
Let me stand next to your fire
Burn funky fire
Let me stand next to your fire
Freaky Styley fire
Let me stand next to your fire
Oh yeah,

Now listen to this baby
And stop acting so crazy

You say your mom ain't home, it ain't my concern
Just don't play with me and you won't get burned
I have only one burning desire
Oh, I'm gonna, me, do it in your fire

Let me stand next to your fire
Fire Funky fire...
Let me stand next to your fire
Oh, Funky fire...
Let me stand next to your fire
Freaky Styley fire...
Let me stand next to your fire
Oh yeah,

Oh move over rover...
And let Mr Huckleberry take over...
You know he's bad, you know he drowns,
you know who he gives it to...
Yeah!

That's right...
Now dig this!

You try to give me your money
You better save it Babe
Save it for your rainy day
I have only one burning desire
Oh, can I make love over your fire?

Let me stand next to your fire
Fire Funky fire...
Let me stand next to your fire
Freaky Styley fire...
Let me stand next to your fire
Oh, Funky fire...
Let me stand next to your fire

You better slide you ass over, girl
'Cos I'm coming through once and
I'm coming through once way hard...
