Lyrics


Purple haze, all in my brain

Lately things they don't seem the same

Actin' funny, but I don't know why

Excuse me while I kiss the sky


Purple haze, all around

Don't know if I'm comin' up or down

Am I happy or in misery?

What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me


Help me

Help me

Oh, no, no


Ooh, ah

Ooh, ah

Ooh, ah

Ooh, ah, yeah!


Purple haze all in my eyes

Don't know if it's day or night

You got me blowin', blowin' my mind

Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?


Ooh

Help me

Ahh, yeah, yeah, purple haze

Oh, no, oh

Oh, help me

Tell me, tell me, purple haze

I can't go on like this

(Purple haze) you're makin' me blow my mind

Purple haze, n-no, no

(Purple haze)
