If you try to run this game, I say, man it's the same old thing
You play the fool
And I'm too tired to make it
For your show again and again
And I try to explain, I said, hey, what you playing
You just wouldn't make it
But I'm so blue and I just can't take any more
So play me something sweet (sweet)
Something mellow (mellow)
Play something I can sink my teeth in like jello
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues

Play me something sweet (sweet)
And make it funky (funky)
I want to lay down and grin just like a monkey
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues

Well I started to sweat, I said don't get upset
'Cause I might just break a string
That won't do a thing for your show
And I said to myself, I said, self, you got to feel
What's sailing through your soul
I just got to have me a little bit more
So play me something sweet (sweet)
Something mellow (mellow)
Play something I can sink my teeth in like jello
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues

Hey, I'd like it sweet (sweet)
And funky (funky)
I want to lay down and grin just like a monkey
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues

Well it's enough to make a light shine in the dark
It's enough to make a [bank] just a [?]
It's enough to make a body move all around
It's enough to make a little bitty rabbit hug a hound
So play me something sweet (sweet)
Something mellow (mellow)
Play something I can sink my teeth in like jello
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues

Hey, I'd like it sweet (sweet)
And funky (funky)
I want to lay down and grin just like a monkey
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues

So play me something sweet (sweet)
Something mellow (mellow)
Play something I can sink my teeth in like jello
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues

Hey, I'd like it sweet (sweet)
And funky (funky)
I want to lay down and grin just like a monkey
Play something I can understand
Play me some brickyard blues
