The Zephyr Song was the second single released for the Red Hot Chili Peppers' eighth studio album By the Way. The song, as a single, was released in two parts. Both editions held two previously unheard-of B-sides, making it, collectively, hold four non-LP tracks. This is the largest amount of accumulated unreleased studio recorded B-sides any solitary single the Red Hot Chili Peppers have ever released. Coincidentally, it is also one of their rarest singles, regularly fetching prices above 100 dollars. During the By the Way tour, the song was played extensively at virtually all live concerts. Since the release of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' newest album, Stadium Arcadium (and its subsequent tour), however, "The Zephyr Song" has since been completely removed and detached from any set lists. However the song was included as part of a set list on the 22nd of April 2007 in New Zealand at the Vector Arena. The band began the song with John Frusciante playing the opening riff, but didn't continue to play the rest of the song after Anthony Kiedis said into the microphone "Nah, not this one". It was stated in reviews and the press that Anthony Kiedis was suffering from throat problems and that it affected some of his performances, which may have been a factor in why "The Zephyr Song" was not played.

The Zephyr Song - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Can I get your hand to write on
Just a piece of lead to bite on
What a night to fly my kite on
Do you want to flash your light on
Take a look it's on display - for you
Coming down no not today

Did you meet your fortune teller
Get it off with no propellor
Do it up it's on with Stella
What a way to finally smell her
Pickin' up, if not too strong - for you
Take a piece and pass it on

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more then ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together
Fly on my wing

Rebel and a liberator
Find a way to be a skater
Rev it up to levitate her
Super friendly aviator
Take a look it's on display - for you
Coming down no not today

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more then ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together
In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We'll find a place together

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa- do you
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa- won't you
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more then ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We're gonna live forever
Forever
