PLAY SOMETHING SWEET (BRICKYARD BLUES) (written by Allen Toussaint) Three Dog Night - 1974 Maria Muldaur - 1974 Well, I tried to run my game She said "Man, that's the same old thing I've heard before" And I'm too tired to go for your show (again and again) And she started to explain She said "Man, I ain't sayin' what you're playin' just can't make it But I just can't take it anymore" Play somethin' sweet, play somethin' mellow Play somethin' I can sink my teeth in like Jello Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin' sweet and make it funky Just let me lay back and grin like a monkey Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Well, I started to sweat She said "Don't get upset 'cause you just might break a string And that won't do a thing for your show So I said to myself I said "Self, do you see what is sailin' through my soul?" And I gotta have some more, don't ya know Play somethin' sweet, play somethin' mellow Play somethin' I can sink my teeth in like Jello Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin' sweet and make it funky Just let me lay back and grin like a monkey Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues It's enough to make it light in the dark It's enough to make a bite just a bark It's enough to make a body move around It's enough to make a rabbit hug a dog Play somethin' sweet ------ instrumental break ------ Well, I tried to run my game She said "Man, that's the same old thing I've heard before" And I'm too tired to go for your show (again and again) And she started to explain She said "Man, I ain't sayin' what you're playin' just can't make it But I just can't take it anymore" Play somethin' sweet, play somethin' mellow Play somethin' I can sink my teeth in like Jello Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin' sweet and make it funky Just let me lay back and grin like a monkey Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin' sweet, play somethin' mellow Play somethin' I can sink my teeth in like Jello Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues Play somethin' sweet and make it funky Just let me lay back and grin like a monkey Play something I can understand Play me some Brickyard Blues
