LyricsEdit

If you can just, get your mind together, then come on across to me.
We'll hold hands and then we'll, watch the sunrise, from the bottom of the sea.

But first, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced? Well, I have.

I know, I know, you'd probably scream and cry, that your little world won't let you go.
But who in your measly little world are you tryna prove that you're made out of gold and uh, can't be sold.

So uh, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced? Well, I have.
Uh, let me prove it to you.

Trumpets and violins, I can hear in the distance. I think they're callin' our name.
Maybe now you can't hear them, but you will (haha) if you just take hold of my hand.

Ohh, but are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
Not neccesarily stoned, but uh, beautiful.
If you can just, get your mind together, then come on across to me.

We'll hold hands and then we'll, watch the sunrise, from the bottom of the sea.

But first, are you experienced? Have you ever been experienced? Well, I have.

I know, I know, you'd probably scream and cry, that your little world won't let you go. But who in your measly little world are you tryna prove that you're made out of gold and uh, can't be sold.

So uh, are you experienced? Have you ever been experienced? Well, I have. Uh, let me prove it to you.

Trumpets and violins, I can hear in the distance. I think they're callin' our name. Maybe now you can't hear them, but you will (haha) if you just take hold of my hand.

Ohh, but are you experienced? Have you ever been experienced?

Not neccesarily stoned, but uh, beautiful.
