If You Have to Ask is the second track and fifth single from the band's fifth studio album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Since John Frusciante had already left the band when the song was released as a single, Arik Marshall appears on the music video instead.

LyricsEdit

A wanna be gangster
Thinkin' he's a wise guy
Rob another bank
He's a sock 'em in the eye guy

Tank head
Mr. Bonnie and Clyde guy
Look him in the eye
He's not my kinda guy

Never wanna be
Confusion proof of
Pudding's sweet
But too aloof

Orange eye girl
With blackslide Dew said
'Yo homie,
Who you talkin' to?'

A backed up paddywagon
Mackin' on a cat's ass
One upper cut
To the cold upper middle class

Born to storm
On boredom's face
Add a little lust
To the funky ass Flea bass

Most in the race
Just loose their grace
The blackest hole
In all of space

Crooked as a hooker
Now suck my thumb
Anybody wanna come get some?

(If you have to ask)
You'll never know
Funky motherfucker
Will not be told to go

(If you have to ask)
You'll never know
Funky motherfucker
Will not be told to go woh woh woh

Don't ask me why
I'm flying so high
Mr. Bubble meets superfly
In my third eye

Searching for a soul bride
She's my freakette
Soak it up inside
Deeper than a secret

Much more
Than meets the eye
To the funk
I fall into my new ride

My hand, my hand
Magic on the blunt
Is a medicine man

Thinkin' of a few
Taboos that I ought to kill
Dancin' on their face
Like a stage in Vaudeville

I feel so good
Can't be understood
Booty of a hoodlum
Rockin' my red hood

(If you have to ask)
You'll never know
Funky motherfucker
Will not be told to go

(If you have to ask)
You'll never know
Funky motherfucker
Will not be told to go woh woh woh
