Well, I stand up next to a mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand

Yeah

Well, I stand up next to a mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise a little sand

Yeah

'cause I'm a voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child baby
I want to say one more last thing
I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to ya one of these days

Hahaha

I said I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back one of these days

Oh yeah

If I don't meet you no more in this world then uh
I'll meet ya on the next one
And don't be late
Don't be late

'cause I'm a voodoo child voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child

Hey hey hey

I'm a voodoo child baby
I don't take no for an answer

Question no
Yeah

    Hendrix was and still is the ultimate definition of an artist. This song is tremendously mighty, the guitar solo is just mind blowing, they lyrics very fitting to the rhythm of the song and hendrix rains on it with his major swagger and presence... This is rock and roll, this is music, this is expression, this is artistry at its highest. Rest in peace to the king.

    He fought and won the system, he makes it better but doesnt completly change it, he's the chosen one, he feels everyones pain around the world, and wants to make it up to them, and he feels sorrow

    It means he wanted to take down the establishment, remake it the way he wanted it, and then to give it back to everyone - just a marxist way of imposing one's will over others to come in the future.

    It means that the guy is really angry and wants to chop a mountain down and he wants to become a Voodoo child and sees brighter futures.
