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

So she started to explain
She said "Man, I ain't sayin'
What you're playin' just can't make it
Oh, 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

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?"
I'm gonna get 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

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, 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
