Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Bass Intro
---> Play Riff 1 over:
Take a chance on something star you gotta
All the live long day
If I had to name one thing you think data
Be hard pressed to say
You can't say I'm gushy, At least you know what I think
I know that I'm lucky, I know you're on the brink
You got it good good good, You got it good so good
---> Play Riff 2 over:
You make up ridiculous words which mean exactly nothing
I know just what you mean and that's the funny thing
It's understood, It's understood
---> Play Chorus over:
Buddy buddy buddy I know why you wander
Through the sweetness on the ground
The sweetness of the flowers
You make your way on a cloudy day
You've got to move
The world you prove is too sweet, yeah
---> Play Riff 1 over:
We parted much too soon I know but that's how it goes
There's someone better out there for you and me
Can't wait to get on the road and feel the shows
And be like phenomenon number 1 and 2 and 3
---> Play Riff 2 over:
I don't mean to brag, I don't mean to boast
But I am the guy that could give you the most
It's good good good, It's understood
---> Play Chorus over:
Buddy buddy buddy I know why you wander
Through the sweetness on the ground
The sweetness of the flowers
You make your way on a cloudy day
You've got to move
The world you prove is too sweet, yeah
---> Play Pre-Solo
---> Solo over Chorus
** Note: The outtake version does not contain SA, and the Chorus is only played
twice. The song structure looks like this:
---> Bass Intro
---> Play Riff 1 over:
Take a chance on something star you gotta
All the live long day
If I had to name one thing you think data
Be hard pressed to say
You can't say I'm gushy, At least you know what I think
I know that I'm lucky, I know you're on the brink
You got it good good good, You got it good so good
---> Play Riff 2 over:
You make up ridiculous words which mean exactly nothing
I know just what you mean and that's the funny thing
It's understood, It's understood
---> Play Chorus (2x):

We parted much too soon I know but that's how it goes
There's someone better out there for you and me

---> Play Riff 2 over:
I don't mean to brag, I don't mean to boast
