Lyrics

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

Play somethin sweet, play somethin mellow Play somethin I can sink my teeth in like Jello Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin sweet and make it funky Just let me lay back and grin like a monkey Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Well, I started to sweat She said Don't get upset 'cause you just might break a string And that won't do a thing for your show So I said to myself I said Self, do you see what is sailin' through my soul? And I gotta have some more, don't ya know Play somethin sweet, play somethin mellow Play somethin I can sink my teeth in like Jello Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin sweet and make it funky Just let me lay back and grin' like a monkey Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues It's enough to make it light in the dark It's enough to make a bite just a bark It's enough to make a body move around It's enough to make a rabbit hug a dog Play somethin sweet [Instrumental Break] 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 And she started to explain She said Man, I ain't sayin' what you're playin' just can't make it But I just can't take it anymore Play somethin sweet, play somethin mellow Play somethin I can sink my teeth in like Jello Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin sweet and make it funky Just let me lay back and grin like a monkey Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin sweet, play somethin mellow Play somethin I can sink my teeth in like Jello Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin sweet and make it funky Just let me lay back and grin like a monkey Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues
