she's so fine
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

She walks with a bell-clock round her neck
So the hippies think she's in with time
Time
Her hair glistens like robins on a deck
Branches attack me from her neck

She's so fine
She's so very very fine

The sun from a cloud sinks into her eyes
The rain from a tree soaks into her mind
Mind
Morning sign sounds just like a lock
All these signs are always a stock

She's so fine
She's so very very fine

When I veer I get so near
But so far far far away
Listen to me, today

We united just beside a leaf
The ground was hard underneath her

Ahhhahhh




She's so fine
Ahhhahhh

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Jimi Hendrix's song She's So Fine are metaphorical and poetic in nature, with each line describing how hypnotic and alluring the woman in question is. The line "She walks with a bell-clock round her neck, so the hippies think she's in with time" refers to how the woman wears a necklace that is reminiscent of a clock, which symbolizes how she is in tune with the times and is very much part of the current counterculture. Her hair shining like robins on a deck while branches attack the singer from her neck represents how the woman's beauty stands out in the midst of everyday life, but at the same time, there is a hint of danger or discomfort that he still feels from being close to her.


The following lines "The sun from a cloud sinks into her eyes, the rain from a tree soaks into her mind" describe how the woman embodies both light and dark elements, with the sun and rain representing the good and the bad. The morning sign that sounds like a lock and the various signs that are always a stock demonstrate how the singer is constantly surrounded by visual and auditory cues that remind him of the woman. The repetition of how fine she is reinforces how incredibly attractive and irresistible she is in her eyes.

@jjjjjj-sd6yr

Wow! Just awesome! Pure talent (that sadly exists no more).

@sathurn_501

if i'm an artist, that means im fuck 'cause i dont have talent?

@jjjjjj-sd6yr

​@@sathurn_501 Not at all! I'm sure you have talent, especially compared to someone like me, who doesn't have an artistic bone in their body. But no one alive today has talent like Hendrix, Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, etc.

Saying you don't have talent would be like me telling a high school basketball player they aren't talented because they're not as good as Jordan or Magic.

@sathurn_501

@@jjjjjj-sd6yr was a great answer, but it's kinda weird, because there will never be someone like hendrix or aretha. Everyone it's diferent, so your right, there will never be someone like hendrix
