Red Hot Chili Peppers — Around The World

"The newfound sense of joy the band now have is there on Californication. Which brings us to one last intriguing lyric, from the aforementioned new single “Around the World”. In one chorus, Kiedis sings, “I know I know it’s true/ Ding dang dong dong ding dang dong dong ding dang.” What’s the deeper meaning behind that one? Kiedis laughs. “It’s like good old fashioned scat singing, which is an American tradition from way back, mixed in with a little bit of an Eastern twist to it,” he explains. “It just happened one day and actually, most of the band was thinking I was singing that because I couldn’t think of any more lyrics for that particular section. But I always intended for it to be that. When it came time for the recording, I did that during the session and they said. ‘OK, so you need to get the rest of those lyrics written.’ I said, ‘No, that is the song,’ and fortunately Flea’s daughter, Clara, was in the studio that day, and she thought it was the best part of the song. So it stayed.”   — Anthony Kiedis, Juice Magazine, 1999
