The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie is the seventh track and the lead single from the band's tenth studio album, I'm With You.

BackgroundEdit

The bassline to the song was written by Flea in his kitchen. Anthony Kiedis said that "When I first heard [the song], I didn't know it would be a single. [But] I knew that I loved the jam. [...] I took it home and it felt so fun to listen to at length that I literally left it on in my driveway, opened the door and danced with the tree next to me for quite a while. I had no idea that it would even be a song, I just thought, 'Oh, this is a great dance track. Let's put it on as a B-side, [an] hour long.' And then, as fate would have it, people heard it, and they were like, 'Oh, that's your best thing right there. That's your best thing.'"

When he was asked about who Maggie is, Kiedis said that he wouldn't reveal who inspired the song. "It's just a collection of memories and people along the way that had maybe left my consciousness until I heard that music, and then they kind of came dancing back into my consciousness, and out the old pen onto the paper. "Names have been changed to protect the innocent. Although there is a Maggie, I realized later. There's two Maggies, actually."

LyricsEdit

Lip stick junkie
Debunked the all in one, she
Came back wearing a smile
Lookin' like someone drugged me
That wanted to unplug me
No one here is on trial
It's just a turnaround
And we go, oh
And then we go oh oh oh oh

Tick tock I want to
Rock you like the 80s
Cock blockin' isn't allowed
Tugboat Sheila
Is into memorabilia
Who said three is a crowd
We better get it on the go

Hey now
We've got to make it rain somehow
She told me to
And showed me what to do
Our Maggie makes it in a cloud

I said hey now
We've got to make it rain somehow
She told me to
And showed me what to do
She knows how to make it loud

Rain dance Maggie
Advances to the final
Who knew that she had the goods
Little did I know her body
Was warm delicious vinyl
To your neck of the woods
I want to lick a little bit

Hey now
We've got to make it rain somehow
She told me to
And showed me what to do
Our Maggie makes it in a cloud

You've got the wrong girl
But not for long girl
It's in the song girl
'Cause I'll be gone girl

Hey now
We've got to make it rain somehow
She told me to
And showed me what to do
Our Maggie makes it in a cloud

I said hey now
I want to rock this rowdy crowd
She told me to
And showed me what to do
She knows how to make it loud

But not for long girl
It's in the song girl
'Cause I'll be gone 'bye 'bye 'bye yeah
'Bye 'bye 'bye girl
'Bye 'bye girl
'Bye 'bye
