Second verse same as the first!! (I couldn't resist) (end solo) w/ D E I'll have it made (I'll have it made) I'll have it made (I'll have it made) I'll have it made (I'll have it made) No no no You know I'm really gonna really gonna have it made (I'll have it made) (I'll have it made) (I'll have it made) End with Figure one fading.
