(Van Morrison / Dawes, Sigman)

Many a tear has to fall
But it's all in the game-ame
All in the wonderful game
Baby, that we know as love
Love love, love, love, love, love

You-you, you-you-you-you
You had words with him
Yeah, your future was lookin' dim-a
Ooh, but these things your heart
Must rise above-a

(Once in a while he won't call)

Ooh, but it's all in the game
Soon he will be standing by your side
Ooh, with a small bouquet
A small bouquet, yeah
And he will, and he will, and he will
Kiss your lips and
Ooh, caress your waiting fingertips-a
And a-you will feel like
You will feel like
You will feel like
You're gonna fly away
Fly away, fly away, fly away, fly away

Up You Make Me Feel So Free

(Van Morrison)

Van (spoken):
'Let me introduce, he's up from Belfast.
He's got a huge pair a-lungs, his name is Brian Kennedy'.

(Brian sings:)
Some people spend their time
Just runnin' 'round in circles
Always chasin' some exotic bird

I'd prefer to spend some time
Just listenin' for that special somethin'
That I've never, ever heard

I'd like a new song to sing
Somewhere entirely different, today
But baby, you make me feel so free

And so I yearn for mystery's callin' me
That's the music
Oh, that's the music

But we only burn up with that passion
When there's absolutely nothin'
Left to lose

I make it to spring
And there's no bed of roses
Just more hard work
That come to me

Oh baby, I wanna say that
You make me feel so free
Yeah

(Van sings:)
I heard that doubt 'You can have your cake
And eat it'
All I ever wanted was just
Just one free lunch

I cannot eat it when the man that standin' next to me
Jumped up and grabbed it
He beat me
He beat me to punch

I cannot think about freedom
Will this last till summer?
Sweet mystery

Baby, remember this!

You make me feel so free

What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?

I'm gonna lay my cards just right down on the table
Spin the wheel
And roll the dice

And no matter how it comes up
And no matter how it turns up bein'
Baby, you know
Well, that's the price of it

How long it will be
There's no need to explain
I just want you place the damper
On my negativity
(Baby!)

Baby, remember that you, you make me feel so free

What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?

Baby, now you
Ooh you, make me feel so free

What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?
What'd ya say?

One more time
(What'd ya say, what'd ya say)

Ooh, you make me feel
So doggone free

You make me feel so free-ee.

She pulled the chains and locked the door

Sail right around on the seven oceans
Drop it straight into the deep blue sea

They can't keep us 'cause our eyes can see
Men with insight, men in granite
Knights in armor bent on chivalry

Up Moondance / My Funny Valentine

(Van Morrison / Rodgers & Hart)

Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies

All the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
Yeah, an' I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low

And all the night's magic
Seem to whisper and hush
All the soft moonlight
Seems to shine in your blush

Can I just have one more moondance
With you, a-my love?
Can I just make some more romance
With you, a-my love?

Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can't wait 'till the morning has come
And I know now the timin' is just right
And straight into my arms you will run

And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you're never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own

Everytime I touch you
You just tremble inside
Then I know how much I want you, baby
That, can't hide

Can I just have one more moondance
With you my love?
(My love)
Can I just make some more romance

Jumpin' with my boy, Sid, in the city
Jumpin' with my boy, Sid, in the city
Mr. President of the DJ committee
We're gonna be up all night gettin' with it

Want you to spin the sounds that are with it
From down in the land that's real, real pretty
Make everything go real crazy over Jersey
Make everything go real crazy over Jersey
(Woo!)

Make everything cool for me an' my baby
We don't wanna think we're listenin' lazy
Gotta be Pressburg cheerin' all the Basie
The dial is all set right though for 8-0
Let it roll

If you tune in to your radio
You hear Moreno clear
Spinnin' your favourite tracks
Johnny Griffin's tenor sax
And all around Manhattan, all the cat's are jumpin'
With Symphony Sid

So tighten your wig
Come out in the boon, dig! 
He's Symphony Sid
He's got the power to make you swing
He's the King
Ding, dong, ding

Ain't a-callin' him
Down or in a square
Really doesn't matter where, Jack!
Long as you're there
'Cause we said he's on the air

You hear the sweetest sounds
That you ever heard
And I mean to say
It's the grooviest way to get down
Every single name
Classic Jazz they taught him
Spinnin' till the mornin' light
And it feels alright

When you listen to the 'Bird'
You will flip!
Charlie Parker's spread the word
All the way up from Kansas City
Gr-ooo-vy as he could be

What a pleasure
Tuning in to Sidney
Let it ro-ooo-ooo-oooll

(Instrumental & sax solo)

Let it ro-ooo-ooo-oooll

Up So Quiet In Here / That's Where It's At

(Van Morrison / Sam Cooke, J.W. Alexander)

Foghorns blowin' in the night
Salt sea air in the mornin' breeze
Movin' up and down, up and down
Up and down the coastline
This must be what's it's all about

This must be what paradise feels like
This must be what paradise is like

So cool in here
So cool
So cool
In here

Warm look of radiance on your face
And your heart beating close to mine
Fade away, fade away, fade away
Fade away in black and white
This must be what it's all about

This must be what paradise is like
This must be what paradise is like

Baby, it's so quiet, so quiet in here
So peaceful in here
It's so quiet in here

(Instrumental & piano solo)

Van: 'Jonn Savannah'

One more time

Big ships sailing out in the night
And we movin', an movin', an movin'
An movin' way across the waves
Headin' for some other shore
Maybe baby, maybe baby, maybe baby
Maybe we can dream on, dream on
Keep on dreamin' on 

This must be what paradise feels like
This must be what paradise feels like

It's so cool
To be here
In here
It's inside
In here
Listenin' to the music
On the stereo

Sam Cooke, singin'
Let The Good Times Roll
You Send Me and That's Where It's At

With the lights down
Way down low-a
Music soft an' slow
Someone you love so
That's where it's at

The world turned upside down-a
And makin' not a sound
Nobody else around
Baby, that's where it's at

(Van with background chorus)
'Cause that's where it's at, pretty baby, yeah
That's where it's at
That's where it's at, pretty baby
I know, tell 'em that's where it's at

Tell 'em one time, yeah

Yeah, that's where
Know that's where it's at, pretty baby
Lord, I know
That's where it's at

That's where it's at, pretty baby
I know, that's where it's at

Up In The Garden / You Send Me / Allegheny

(Van Morrison / Sam Cooke / Bill Staines)

The fields, the fields
Are always wet with rain
After a summer shower
When I saw you standing
You were standing in the garden
In the garden all misty wet with rain
Misty wet with rain

You wiped the teardrops
From your eyes in sorrow
And we watched the petals
Fall down to the ground
And I sat beside you
I felt this great sadness that day, yeah
When we were standing in the garden

And then, and then, one day
You came back home
You were a creature all in rapture, yeah (yeah)
You had a key to your soul
And you did open that day
When you came back to the garden

Yeah, the olden summer breeze
Was blowin' on your face
Yeah, an' the light was shinin'
On your countenance divine
You were a violet colour
As you sat beside your father and your mother
In the garden

Summer breeze was blowin' on your face-a
In the silence you treasure your summery words
Shiver from my neck down to my spine
Ignited me in daylight and nature
In the garden

Yeah, you fell, you fell, you fell
You fell, you fell into a trance
Vision became so fine
Yeah, we heard the bells
Within the church, we loved so much, yeah

It went like this:

(Vibes plays - 8 notes like bells)

As I touched your cheeks so lightly
Feel like you were born again
An' again, an' again, an' again, an' again
And we felt the presence
Of the youth of a thousand summers
In the garden

(Instrumental & piano solo)

Van: 'One more time for Jonn Savannah'

(applause)

Oh, mornin', mornin'
Mornin', mornin'
One morning in May
Here on my mountain
You're gonna stay                  
Come and go with me
To the Allegheny

I wanna buy you a horse
For you to ride
I'll ride 'long by your side
To the Allegheny

(Instrumental & Harmonica)

(mumbled)
I'm suppose to get a lawyer
Hey!
That's all I have to say, yeah

Let him take his own wife
To the Allegheny

(short harmonica - Van)

Sam Cooke is on the radio
And the night is filled with space

Let's get Brian back out here

(applause)

And your fingertips touch my face
I'm Real Real Gone

Sam Cooke is on the radio
Yeah an' the night is filled with space, yeah
And your fingertips are touchin' my face
Singin, 'darlin' you send me
You send me, you send me, you send me)

(Oh, darlin' you send me)

Brian:
Darlin', you-ooo-ooo send me
Oh, darlin' you-ooo-ooo send me

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Have I told you there's no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do

Now the mornin' sun in all it's glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort, too
You fill my life with laughter

And it's yours and mine, like the sun
At the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray to the One
