Lyrics:
Purple Haze all in my brain,
lately things 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 coming up or down.
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me.

Help me
Help me
Oh no, oh

Yeah, Purple Haze all in my eyes,
don’t know if it’s day or night,
you’ve got me blowing, blowing my mind
is it tomorrow or just the end of time?

Help me, yeah, Purple Haze!

Lyrics:
If you wanna hang out you’ve got to take her out.
Cocaine.
If you wanna get down, down on the ground.
Cocaine.
[Chorus:]
She don’t lie, she don’t lie, she don’t lie;
Cocaine.
If you got bad news, you wanna kick them blues.
Cocaine.
When your day is done and you wanna run.
Cocaine.
[Chorus]
If your thing is gone and you wanna ride on.
Cocaine.
Don’t forget this fact, you can’t get it back.
Cocaine.
[Chorus 2x]
