Common – Jimi Was A Rock Star lyrics

Erykah Badu and Common ( deeply):

Verse 1:

Everyone hides thier face,

Sets behind a mask they wear.
Jimi was a rock star

Searching for that magic place


He could touch

In the sky

Just to get his people high.

Ohhhhhhhhh (jack! )

Oh oh ohhhhhh

Oh oh

Oh oh
Ohhhhhhhhh (jack! )(repeat)

Verse 2:

Life is so, colorful

Reds, blues and dreams.

Jimi lives in a purple haze,
In a psychadelic maze.

Playing the streets like and instrument:

Pulling strings wherever he went.

Angel sent

From the sky
Just to get his people high.

Ohhhhhhhhhh (jack! )


Oh oh

Oh oh

Ohhhhhhhh (jack! )(repeat)

Women all around (ehh da da daaa da)
Fast cars and sound (ehh da da daaa da)

And freedom he was bound (ehh da da daaa da)

Couldn't see the ground (ehh da da daaa da)

Jimi come out why don't you set me free!

(set me free)

Sooooo high
Born to fly

Getting high off his own supply

With the most highs of the sky

Everybody follows the same lord

Using his light to guide the way

Yooooou yoooooou yooooou you choose
Is it a shame that you died so young

Something among

Jimi was stung


Hides their face

Sets behind a mask they wear

(Back ground: Jimi come out why don't you set me free?)Till end
