Well, I tried to run my game
She said "Man, that's the same old thing I've heard before"
And I'm too tired to go for your show (again and again)

And she started to explain
She said "Man, I ain't saying what you're playing just can't make it
But I just can't take it anymore"

Play something sweet, play something mellow
Play something I can sink my teeth in like Jello
Play something I can understand
Play me some Brickyard Blues

Play something sweet and make it funky
Just let me lay back and grin like a monkey
