Ah Jimi, why'd you have to go so soon?
-There ain't no point in talking once you finished up the tune.
Ah Jimi, why'd you have to die so young?
-There's nothing else to do once the air can't reach your lung.
Ah Jimi, why've you gone and left us on our own?
-I had to find some quiet place to be alone.
Ah Jimi, what do we have for music now you gone?
-If that's all that you can think to ask me, I must have played it wrong.
