Purple Haze
{cough?}
Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple Haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me
Help me
Oh, no, no

[faint, spoken lyrics...all questionable]
[1:13] Hammerin'
[1:15] Talkin' 'bout heart 'n'...s-soul
[1:21] I'm talkin' about hard stuff
[1:25] If everbodys still around, fluff and ease, if
[1:29] So far out my mind
[1:32] Somethings happening, somethings happening

Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, {click} ahhh,
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh, YEAH!

Purple haze all in my eyes, uhh
Don't know if its day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?

Woman so weary, the sweet cause in vain
You make love, you break love

Love Or Confusion
Is that the stars in the sky, or is it
rain fallin' down
Will it burn me if I touch the sun-uh, yeah

Would I be truthful, yeah, in, uh

Is this love, baby
or is it, uh-huh,

O-Oh, my mind is so messed up-uh
Goin' 'round and 'round
Must there be all the colors-uh
without names, without sound, baby?
My heart burns with feeling, but, uh
Woe, but my mind, its cold and reeling
Is this love, baby
or, uh-huh, or is it confusion?

Oh, my head is poundin', poundin'

May This Be Love (Aka Waterfall)
Waterfall
nothing can harm me at all
My worries seem so very small
with my waterfall

I can see
my rainbow calling me
through the misty breeze
of my waterfall

Some people say
day-dreamings for all the, huh,
lazy minded fools
with nothin' else to do
So let them laugh, laugh at me
So just as long as I have you
to see me through
I have nothing to lose
'Long as I have you

Waterfall
don't ever change your ways
Fall with me for a million days
Oh, my waterfallback to top
I Don't Live Today
Will I live tomorrow?
Well, I just can't say
Will I live tomorrow?
Well, I just can't say
But I know for sure
I don't live today

No sun comin' through my windows
Feel like I'm livin' at the bottom of a grave
No-ho sun comin' through my windows
Feel like I'm livin' at the bottom of a grave
I wish you'd hurry up and execute me
so I can be on my miserable way

(Well), I don't
live today
Maybe tomorrow, I just can't say, but, uh
I don't
live today
Its such a shame to waste your time away like this

The Wind Cries Mary
After all the jacks are in their boxes
and the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
footsteps dressed in red
And the wind whispers Mary

A broom is drearily sweeping
up the broken pieces of yesterdays life
Somewhere a queen is weeping
Somewhere a king has no wife
And the wind, it cries Mary

The traffic lights, they turn, uh, blue tomorrow
and shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sags down stream
'cause the life that lived is,
is dead
And the wind screams Mary

Uh-will the wind ever remember
the names it has blow in the past?
And with this crutch, its old age, and its wisdom
it whispers no, this will be the last
And the wind cries Maryback to top
Fire
Alright,

Third Stone From The Sun
{intro slowwed down talking begins}
Star fleet to scout ship, please give your position. Over.
I'm in orbit around the third planet from the star called
the sun. Over.
You mean its the Earth? Over.
Positive. It is known to have some form of intelligent species. Over.
I think we should take a look.
{intro slowwed down talking ends}

Strange beautiful grass of green,
with your majestic silver seas
Your mysterious mountains I wish to see closer
May I land my kinky machine?

{start slowwed down}
Strange beautiful, grass of green
with your majestic silver seas
Your mysterious mountains I wish to see closer
May I land my kinky machine?
{end slowwed down}

Although your world wonders me,
with your majestic and superior cackling hen
Your people I do not understand,
so to you I shall put an end
And you'll
never hear
surf music again

Are You Experienced
If you can just get your mind together
uh-then come on across to me
We'll hold hands and then we'll
watch the sunrise
from the bottom of the sea
But first, are you experienced?
Uh-have you ever been experienced-uh?
Well, I have

(Well) I know, I know, you'll probably scream and cry
that your little world won't let you go
But who in your measly little world, (-uh)
are you tryin' to prove to that you're
made out of gold and-uh, can't be sold
So-uh, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced? (-uh)
Well, I have
Uh, let me prove it to you,
yeah

Trumpets and violins I can-uh, hear in the distance
I think they're callin' our name
Maybe now you can't hear them,
but you will, ha-ha, if you just
take hold of my hand
Ohhh, but are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?

Not necessarily stoned, but
beautiful





Title: ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER (Bob Dylan)

Am G F G Am (play it forever)
There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief
Business men they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None would ever compromise
Nobody of this world


No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I we've been through that
And this is not our place
So let us stop talking falsely now
The hour's getting late


All along the watchtower
Princess kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too
Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl


All along the watchtower
All along the watchtower
All along the watchtowerback to top
