Storm In A Teacup Lyrics
Let me show you what I'm talking about
You try to be a lady
But your walkin' like a sour kraut
Looka looka lika lika
Like you want to get some
If you never tell a lie
Then you never have to play dumb
Dirty baby time...

A storm in a teacup by definition is something small that is blown out of proportion. Someone is being dramatic... now take that definition and the sexual meanings along with a mix of other RHCP themes and run with it.

Every thing is perfect and then you meet a guy and everything in your little perfect world... or "teacup" comes crashing down.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

This is just my opinion, and I'm probably not the only one here like this but I pretty much ONLY listen to RHCP, and I really think about the meanings when listening to the songs and I get an almost completely sexual vibe from this one, because of his many sexual exploits when he was young, you should all read scar tissue, its an amazing book

Could be a reference to rough days ahead? There is a practice performed by gypsies and psychics, they look at tea leaves left over in a tea cup and predict your future. much like palm reading and all that other garbage.....who knows

haha it kinda sounds like a sexual thing to me. A tiny storm in your teacup......teacup representing their vagina and him doing them.
idk it could be possible

My interpretation of this is to do with helen of troy! Not "heavens to murgatroid" but heavens to murder troy. A huge battle over one chick - a storm in a teacup.
Not sure about this, but...
Early on in the song, anthony kiedis says "heavens to murgatroid!", which is a catch phrase of cartoon character snagglepuss.
Despite contrary belief that the lyrics are "wu tang, wu tang, it's a kinda cool thang", the actual lyrics for that section are "rootay wootay gitta gotta gootay", according to the official guitar tablature book .
Since kiedis' singing style has now changed from rapping to singing, he is reported to dislike playing this song live, and it is rumoured to be released as a single.
