Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about If You Have to Ask. By Songfacts®.

This song was not supposed to make sense, and the chorus was written to certify this song as nonsense: "If you have to ask, you'll never know."

Although a single was made for this song, it was banned from radio stations because the line after "If you have to ask, you'll never know" was "funky motherf--kers will not be told to go." The funky motherf--kers were the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The clapping at the end of the song is for John Frusciante's improvised guitar solo.
