Play Something Sweet

Play

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 sayin' what your playin'
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, now make it funky
Just make 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, no
So I said to myself
I said self do you see what is sailing through my soul
And I got to have some more, don't you know.

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, now make it funky
Just make me lay back and grin like a monkey
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues.

It's enough to make a 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 hound.

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, now make it funky
Just make me lay back and grin like a monkey
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues.
