Ever since the Black Crowes came out with this years ago and I’d hear it on the radio, I’d strain to figure out just WHAT that lyric was at the end of the chorus. I never was able to figure it out.
I’m not talking about the whole song–the rock music tends to overshadow the lyric anyhow. (Not that that’s bad, or anything.) 🙂
No, I mean the part where the music STOPS and it’s just him singing.
You know…the part where he sounds kind of like an auctioneer. What the heck is he saying??
It sounds like, “Hey, pretty thing, let me light your candle, ’cause….” and that’s where I get lost.
Listen for yourself…see if you can figure it out.
And no cheating by looking up the lyrics on the Interweb. They are probably wrong, anyway.
