“Purple Haze” Lyrics

Micky: This is what it was like, Jimi Hendrix opening for The Monkees.

Purple haze is in my brain
Lately things, they don’t seem the same
Actin’ funny, and I don’t know why
We want Davy! We want The Monkees! Micky, Davy! We want The—

Micky: It was kinda embarrassing. We’re backstage going, oh my—boy, that sounded pretty good. You guys wanna hear the rest?
Crowd: Yeah!

’Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze is in my eyes
Don’t know if it’s a-day or night
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Purple haze!
Purple haze!

[break]

Purple haze is all around
Don’t know if I’m-a up or down
You got me blowin’, blowin’ my mind
Is it tomorrow, just the end of time?

Help me!
Help me, purple haze!

Micky: Thank you.
