[Lyrics] 
I like pleasure spiked with pain
And music is my aeroplane
It's my aeroplane
Songbird sweet and sour Jane
And music is my aeroplane
It's my aeroplane
Pleasure spiked with pain
That motherf**ker's always spiked with pain
Looking in my own eyes, hello
I can find the love I want
Someone better slap me
Before I start to rust
Before I start to decompose
Looking in my rear view mirror
Looking in my rear view mirror
I can make it disapear
I can make it disapear, have no fear
I like pleasure spiked with pain
And music is my aeroplane
It's my aeroplane
Songbird sweet and sour Jane
And music is my aeroplane
It's my aeroplane
Pleasure spiked with pain
That motherf**ker's always spiked with pain
Sitting in my kitchen
I'm turning into dust again
My melancholy baby
The star of mazy must
Push her voice inside of me
I'm overcoming gravity
I'm overcoming gravity
It's easy when you're sad to be
It's easy when you're sad
Sad like me
I like pleasure spiked with pain
And music is my aeroplane
It's my aeroplane
Songbird sweet and sour Jane
And music is my aeroplane
It's my aeroplane
Pleasure spiked with pain
Just one note could make me float
Could make me float away
One note from the song
She wrote could f**k me where I lay
Just one note could make me choke
One note that's not a lie
Just on note could cut my throat
One note could make me die
I like pleasure spiked with pain
And music is my aeroplane
It's my aeroplane
Songbird sweet and sour Jane
And music is my aeroplane
It's my aeroplane
That's spiked with pain
[Alternative approacbes] 
When I played this with my Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute, in order to fill the sound out
I slightly adapted some parts. Here's a link to a live demo I did with my RHCP tribute
'Scar Tissue' - the tremolo 'dive bomb' was the only overdub)...

For a more 'Hendrix-like' vibe, this how I played part of the solo:
Bend 'A' string down into 'D' string ('F' note should bend imperceptibly sharp)
