15. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced?

The Jimi Hendrix Experience

 

A real shock of its time! Hendrix' virtuosity and the sounds he extracts from his guitar were never heard before and defined the instrument as we know it from then on. Hendrix was also a very fine songwriter. Almost every song in this album remained forever in the memory of rock lovers.
Side A 
 
1.- Foxy Lady 
 
Foxy, Foxy, you know you are a cute little heart breaker, 
Foxy yeah, and you know you are a sweet little love maker. 
Foxy, I wanna take you home, yeah, I won't do you no harm, no. 
You've got to be all mine, all mine, oh Foxy Lady. 
 
Foxy, Foxy, now-a I see you come down on the scene, 
Oh, Foxy, you make me wanna get up and screem. 
Foxy, oh baby listen now, I've made up my mind, 
I'm tired of wasting all my precious time. 
You've got to be all mine, all mine, Foxy Lady. 
 
I wanna take you home, I won't do you no harm, no. 
You've got to be all mine, all mine, Foxy Lady. 
Oh Foxy Lady, yeah, yeah, you look so good, Foxy, oh yeah. 
Foxy yeah, give us some, Foxy, Foxy, Foxy. 
 
 
2.- Manic Depression 
 
Manic depression's touching my soul, 
I know what I want but I just don't know how to go about getting it, 
Feeling, sweet feeling drops from my fingers, fingers. 
Manic depression's captured my soul. 
 
Woman so willing the sweet cause in vain, 
You make love, you break love, it's all the same when it's, 
when it's over. 
Music, sweet music, I wish I could could caress, caress, caress. 
Manic depression's a frustrating mess. 
 
Well I think I'll go turn myself off and go on down. 
Really ain't no use for me hanging around, oh I gotta see you. 
Music, sweet music I wish I could caress, caress, caress. 
Manic depression's a frustrating mess. 
 
 
3.- Red House 
 
There's a red house over yonder, that's where my baby stays. 
There's a red house over yonder, baby, that's where my baby stays. 
Well I ain't been home to see my baby in about 
a ninety nine and half days, 'bout time I see her. 
Wait a minute, something's wrong, the key won't unlock this door, 
Wait a minute, something's wrong, baby, 
the key won't unlock the door. 
I got a bad, bad feeling that my baby don't live here no more. 
I might as well go on back down, 
go back 'cross yonder over the hill. 
I might as well go back over yonder, way back over yonder 
'cross the hill - that's where I came from - 
"Cause if my baby don't love me no more, oh I know her sister will. 
 
 
4.- Can You See Me ? 
 
Can you see me, blaming you on my knees, wo yeah ? 
Can you see me, baby ? Baby, please don't leave, yeah. 
If you can see me doing that, 
you can see in the future of a thousand years. 
 
Can you hear me, crying all over town, wo yeah ? 
Can you hear me, baby, crying 'cause you put me down ? 
If you can hear me doing that, you can hear a freight train 
coming from a thousand miles. 
 
Can you hear me singing this song to you ? 
Oh you gotta listen to me, baby. 
Can you hear me, baby, singing this song to you ? 
If you can hear me sing, you better come home 
like you supposed to do. 
 
Can you hear me, hey, hey ? 
I don't believe you can hear me, wo yeah. 
Can you see me, baby ? 
I don't believe you can. 
 
 
5.- Love Or Confusion ? 
 
Is that the stars in the sky or is it rainig far from now ? 
Will it burn me if I touch the sun, so big, so round ? 
Will I be truthful, yeah, in choosing you as the one from me ? 
Is this love, baby, or is it just a confusion ? 
 
Oh my mind is so mixed up, going 'round and 'round. 
Must there be all these colours without names, without sounds ? 
My heart burns with feelin', oh but my mind is so cold and reeling. 
Is this love, baby, or is it confusion ? 
 
Oh my head is pounding, pounding, goin' 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round 
Must there always be these colours without names, 
without sounds ? 
My heart burns with feelin', oh but my mind is so cold and reeling. 
Is this love, baby, or is it just a confusion ? 
 
 
6.- I Don't Live Today 
 
Will I live tomorrow ? Well, I just can't say. 
Will I live tomorrow ? Well, I just can't say, 
But I know for sure I don't live today. 
 
No sun coming through my windows, 
feel like I'm living at the bottom of a grave. 
No sun coming through my windows, 
feel like I'm living at the bottom of a grave. 
I wish you'd hurry up and rescue me, 
so I can be on my miserable way. 
 
I don't live today. Will I live tomorrow ? 
It's such a shame to waste (spend) your time away like this. 
Oh there ain't no light nowhere. 
 
 
Side B 
 
1.- May This Be Love 
 
Waterfall, nothing can harm me at all, 
my worries seem so very small, with my waterfall. 
I can see my rainbow calling me, 
through the misty breeze of my waterfall. 
 
Some people say day dreaming's for the lazy minded fools, 
with nothing else to do. 
So let them laugh, laugh at me, so just as long as I have you 
to see me through, I have nothing to lose, 'long as I have you. 
 
Waterfall, don't ever change your ways, 
come with me fore a million days, oh my waterfall. 
 
 
2.- Fire 
 
Alright, now listen, baby. 
You don't care for me; I don't care about that. 
Gotta new fool, ha, I like it like that. 
I have only one burning desire: let me stand next to your fire, 
let me stand next to your fire. 
 
Listen there, baby, and stop acting so crazy. 
You say your mum ain't home, it ain't my concern. 
Just play with me and you won't get burned. 
I have only one itching desire: let me stand next to your fire, 
let me stand next to your fire. 
 
Oh move over, Rover, and let Jimi take over. 
Yeah, you know what I'm talking about, yeah, get on with it, baby. 
That's what I'm talking about. 
Now dig this, ha, now listen, baby, 
You try to gimme your money, you better save it, baby, 
save it for your rainy day. 
I have only one burning desire: let me stand next to your fire, 
let me stand next to your fire. 
 
 
3.- Third Stone From The Sun 
 
Oh strange beautiful grass of green 
with your majestic silken scenes, 
your misterious mountains I wish to see closer. 
May I land my kinky machine. 
 
Although your world wonders me 
with your majestic superior cackling hen, 
your people I do not understand, so to you I wish to put an end, 
and you'll never hear surf music again. 
 
 
4.- Remember 
 
Oh remember the mocking bird, my baby bun. 
He used to sing for his supper, baby, 
yes, he used to sing for his dinner. 
He used to sing so sweet, 
but-a since my baby left me he ain't sang in two long days. 
 
Oh remember the bluebirds and the honey bees, 
they used to sing for the sunshine, 
yes, they used to sing for the flowers. 
They used to sing se sweet, 
but-a since my baby left me thay ain't sang in two long days. 
 
Hey pretty baby, come on back to me. 
Make everybody happy as can be. 
So baby, if you please come home again, 
you know I'll kiss you for my supper, 
yeah, you know I'll kiss you for my dinner, babe. 
But if don't come back, 
you know I'll have to starve to death, 
'cause I ain't had a kiss all day now, all day. 
 
Please remember, you got to remember our love. 
Come on back, come on back in my arms. 
I'll make everything that better. 
Come on baby, hurry up now. 
Can you hear me calling you back again now ? 
Come on baby, stop jiving around, hurry home, hurry home. 
 
 
5.- Are You Experienced ? 
 
If you can just get your mind together, then come on across to me. 
We'll hold hands, and then we'll watch the sun rise, 
from the bottom of the sea. 
But first are you experienced ? 
Ah, have you ever been experienced ? 
Well, I have. 
 
I know, I know you'll probably scream and cry 
that your little world won't let you go. 
But who in your measly little world are you tryong to prove that 
you're made of gold and a-can't be sold ? 
So 're, are you experienced ? 
Have you ever been experienced ? 
Well, I have. 
Ah, let me prove it to you. 
 
Trumpets and violins I can hear in the distance, 
I think they're calling our names. 
Maybe now you can't hear them, but you will 
if you just take hold of my hand. 
Ah, but are you experienced ? 
Have you ever been experienced ? 
Not necessarily stoned, but beautiful.
