	Sometimes a Jimi Thing
	Slides my way and keeps me 
	Swinging I'd like to show you what's inside,
	I shouldn't care if you do or don't like it
	Brother chaos rule all about
	Sometimes I walk there
	Well yes, God knows, sometimes I take a bus there
	Shouldn't care
	I shouldn't care

	      A
	bereaved as I'm feeling
