Up The Story of Them

(Van Morrison)

When friends were friends
And company was right
We'd drink and talk and sing
All through the night

Morning came leisurely and bright
Downtown we'd walk
And passers by, would shudder with delight
Mmmmmm! Good times

And there was this man
All the cats were there
Just dirty enough to say, "We don't care"
But, the management have had complaints
About some cats with long, long hair
"Look, look, look"
And the people'd stare
"Why, you won't be allowed in
anywhere!"
Barred from pubs, clubs and
dancin' halls
Made the scene at the Spanish rooms
on the falls
And man, four pints of that scrumpy was
enough to have you, outta your mind
Climbin', climbin' up the walls
Out of your mind
But it was a gas, all the same
Ummm! Good time!

Now just 'round about this time
With the help of the three J's
Started playin' at the Maritime
That's, Jerry, Jerry and Jimmy

You know they were always fine
And they helped us run the Maritime
Don't forget Kit, hittin' people on the head
An' knockin' 'em out
You know he did his best and all
Was something else, then
Ummm, Lord, good times

And people say
Who are or what are, Them?
That little one sings
And that big one plays the guitar
With a thimble on his finger
Runs it up and down the strings

The bass player don't shave much
I think they're all a little bit, touched
But the people came
And that's how we made our name
Too much it was
Umm, yeah, our good times

Wild, sweaty, crude, ugly and, and mad
And sometimes just, a little bit sad
Yeah, they sneered an' all
But up there, we just havin' a ball
It was a gas, you know
Lord, some good times

It was kinda bad for, Them
We are, Them, take it or leave it
Do you know they took it, and it kept comin'
And we worked for the people
Sweet, sweat and the misty, misty atmosphere

Gimme another drink of beer, baby
Gotta get goin' here
Because, it was a gas
We all had good times

Blues come rollin'
Down to all your avenue
Won't stop at the city hall
Just a few steps away
You can look up at, Maritime Hotel
Just a little bit sad, gotta walk away
Wish it well

Up Don't Start Crying Now

(James Moore and Jerry West)

You ain't never had to cry baby
Don't start cryin' now
You ain't never had to cry baby
Don't start cryin' now

Don't do you know good no how

Make-a love most all the time

And find your good man gone

Ooh! (Instrumental)

Here you come walkin' today
Got you all fired up

Cry cry baby, cry cry all night long
Gonna wake up in the mornin'
Find your good man gone

Well cry cry baby, cry cry all night long
(Well) cry cry baby, cry cry all night long

And find your good man gone

Up Philosophy

(Van Morrison)

Told ya' darlin', all along
I was right and you were wrong
A-pleasin' you, so hard to do
Cried all night long, was beatin' through

Can't sow wild oats, 'spect to gather corn
Can't take right and make it wrong
Told ya' darlin', long time ago
You gotta reap, what you sow, and what you sow

Yeah-eah, is gonna make you weep
Some day, some day, some day
Yeah, what you sow-oh, yeah
Is gonna make you weep

Tried to keep you satisfied
Broke my heart, crushed my pride
It's all over now, but all I see
Is a lonely road, and a memory
Of daily walkin', and talkin', 'bout Joanne
Can't ya' see, I said, daily walkin', an' talkin'

Can't sow wild oats, 'spect to gather corn
Can't take right and make it wrong
I told ya' darlin', long time ago
You gotta reap, what you sow, and what you sow
Yeah-eay is gonna make you weep
A-some day, a-some day, some day
Yeah, what you sow, yeah-eay
Gonna make you weep, a-some days

Up Little Girl

Little girl, little girl
Thought you were on your way to school
Little girl, little girl
Thought you were on your way to school
Do you remember?
You went and broke your teacher's rule

Well, I walked by your classroom
I had to take a look
I stopped a while and watched what you
Had written in your book
'Cause I love ya
An' I don't care, a-what they say

Saw you from my window
Standin' by the big oak tree
I sat an' thought an' wondered, baby
About how it used to be
And miles and miles of golden sand
A-walking, a-talkin', hand in hand
And I've got you, in my soul
I really do believe
I've got you in my soul

Got you
Got you
Got you
I got you, in my soul
In my, a-in my soul
You're so sweet, angel

I got you, a-in my soul
I love you, I need you
Wild child
Oh child
Whoa, child
Oh-oh, child

FADES -
Whoa, child
Whoa, child
Ah-ha
Alright!

Up I Gave My Love A Diamond

(Bert Berns, Wes Farrell)

I gave my love a diamond, a ten cent stone
I gave her lonely teardrops and nights alone
I gave my love a promise that had no truth
What good is a promise without no truth?

I gave my love a fortune in silver and gold
I gave it to her lie, by lie, by lie, by lie that I had told
I gave my love a story that had no end
What good is a story that's got no end?
Tell me

I wrote her that we would marry
In about, a-one years time
I wrote her in a boxcar on the Memphis Line
I sent my love a letter without no stamp, ha
And what good is a letter without no stamp?

Good-bye baby
I'm feelin' so alone
I'm movin' on
I ain't got no small change
And don't call me, I'll call you
FADES-
See ya!

Leave me alone, I say, leave me alone
Yeah-yeah-yeah

When she moves she looks so great
And nobody else's lips have touched hers, but mine
Leave me alone, I say, leave me alone

Go on home, baby

Our love is through

Up If You And I Could Be As Two

(Van Morrison)

Spoken: Was on a Sunday
And the autumn leaves were on the ground
I kicked my heart
When I saw you standing there in your dress of blue
The storm was over, my ship sailed through
Sings:
What is this feeling, a-what can I do?

If you an' I, could be relieved
To walk and talk and be deceived
I'd give my all and all
And more I would do, oh yeah
If darlin', only you and I could be as two

If we could dream and by our dreams
Sew this wicked world up at the seams
I'd give my life and more I would do
If darlin', only you and I could be as two

Spoken:
And baby, do you remember
All the good times we had together?
A-walkin' through the park
A-baby then, then we could sing

Give ya' all my money
Ev'rything in the world that I had
You told me, "That don't mean a thing"

If still in darkness we could run
Together, there in that mornin' sun
I'd give my all, my life and ev'rything to you
Whoa-yeah
If darlin', only you and I could be as two

Could be as two
Could be as two
FADES-
Could be as two
Baby

Up You Just Can't Win

One more coffee
One more cigarette
One more morning trying to forget.
If I had the chance
To join your dance
I wouldn't like to bet,
Your game is something yet
It's a shame,
Ain't natural for you,
Baby, it's a sin,
You know you just can't win
When you are in.

You used to ride on buses
Take a tube to Camden Town.
Now you go by aeroplane
Don't let nothing bring you down.
It's a shame,
Ain't natural for you,
Baby, it's a sin,
Don't you know you just can't win
When you are in.

Now the road is dark and lonely,
But you got a pearl light mode.
You're up in Park Lane now
And I'm somewhere around
In Tottenham Court Road.
It's a shame,
Ain't natural for you,
Baby, it's a sin,
Don't you know you just can't win
When you are in.
No, you just can't win,
No, you just can't win
When you are in.

I've been up and and down the highway
And I've seen what a man can do
To some little girl along the byway
That's why I sing this song to you

If you find your baby's gone
And you don't know where or when
You wonder, yes you wonder
If you'll ever see him again
Just remember, remember
These simple words I brought

Soon it won't hurt half as much
No it won't hurt half as much
No it won't hurt half as much as you thought

'Cause I been up and down the highway
And I watch them as they pass by
Broken hearts and I wish that they'd go my way
I'd save them every little teardrop they cry

Won't you listen?
If you think you can't go on
And life ain't got it for you no more
You're waitin' every night
For him to come walkin' through that door

Just remember, remember
These simple words that I brought
Soon it won't hurt half as much
No it won't hurt half as much

(Bob Dylan)

You must leave now take what you need
You think will last
But whatever you wish to keep you better grab it fast

Yonder stands your orphan with his gun
Crying like a fire in the sun
Look out baby, the saints are comin' through
And it's all over now baby blue

The highway is for gamblers better use your sense
Take what you have gathered from coincidence
The empty handed painter from your streets
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets
The sky too is fallin in over you- ooo
And it's all over now baby blue

(Instrumental)

Leave your stepping stones behind
There's something that calls for you
Forget the debt you left that will not follow you

Your lover who has just walked through the door
Has taken all his blankets from the floor
The carpet too is foldin' over you
And it's all over now baby blue

Well strike another match, yeah, go start a-new
Go start a-new

(Paul Simon)

They say that Richard Cory
Owns one-half of this here town
With political connections
Spread his wealth around

Born into society, a banker's only child
He had everything a man could want
Power, grace and style

And I curse the life I'm livin'
And I curse my poverty
That I wish that I could be
Yeah, I wish that I could be
Lord, I wish that I could be, Richard Cory

Paper's print his pictures
Almost everywhere he go
Richard Cory at the opera
Richard Cory at the show

And the rumours of his a-parties
And the orgies on his yacht
Well, he surely must be happy
With everythang that he has got

But I, work in his factory
And I curse the life I'm livin'
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be
I wish that I could be, yea-ah
I wish that I could be, Richard Cory

He freely gave to charity
And had that common touch
They were grateful for his patronage
And thanked him very much

So my mind was filled with wonder
When the evenin' headlines read
That Richard Cory went home last night
And put a bullet through his head, hu

But I, I, I, work in his factory
And I, I don't don't dig the life I'm livin'
And I don't dig my poverty
And I wish that I could be
Yeah, an' I wish that I could be
Well, wish that I could be, Richard Cory

Some sunny windswept afternoon

And there go you and I
Between the umber sky
But who are you and I
To wonder why we do so?

The moon in all it's glory
This song I sing it everything
For you my sad eyes

Could you love me
Like I love you so
Like I love you so, oh

Every time I see you walkin' down my avenue
I say, "Hi, hi, hi, hi, hi, are you alright?"
And you say, "How do ya do?"
Just like ya always do
And if I had ya in my arms tonight

Could you, a-would you,
Um hold, hold me oh so near
While I whisper in your ear
The sweet words you long to hear

Could you love me
Like I love you-ooo-ooo
Like I love you-ooo-ooo
Oh

(Instrumental)

Could you, a-would you
Um ho-old me oh so near
While I whisper in your ear
The sweet words you long to hear

Could you love me
Like I love you-ooo-ooo
Like I love you-ooo-ooo

Jus-jus-jus-just just like I love you
Just just, just like I love you, baby
FADES
Just, just, just like I love you

Up Bring 'Em On In (alternate US version)

(Van Morrison)

Spoken:
All these wise guys tryin-a put us down
We gonna bring 'em on in, yeah!
An' bring 'em on home

Sings:
See them stumblin' by the wayside
See them stumblin' by the wayside
Though it won't sail, 'cross the water
See them stumblin' by the wayside
Pick them up, baby, row them home
Bring 'em on in, bring 'em on in

Hey-hey!
Hey-hey, sail 'em

I went walkin', down by Queensway
When I met a friend of mine, and said
"Come on back, back to my pad
I just got some, I just got some'
I said, 'Pick me up, roll me home
Turn me on, turn me on!"

When I stepped off the platform
And I walked to the car-park
Slowly, cool, cool, yeah
Outta my mind, outta my mind
Outta my mind, ravin'

Bi-do-di-di, do-de-le-ah, do-de-le-ah, do

Bring 'em on in

Up Richard Cory (alternate version)

(Paul Simon)

Say that Richard Cory
Owns one-half of this here town
With political connections
To spread his wealth around
Born into society, a banker's only child
He had everything a man could want
Power, grace and style

But I, I work in his factory
And I curse the life that I'm livin'
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be
Yeah, hey I wish that I could be
Lord, I wish that I could be, Richard Cory

The paper's print his picture
Everywhere he go
Richard Cory at the opera
Richard Cory at the show
And the rumours of his parties
And orgies on his yacht
Heart and soul he must be happy
With everything that he has got

But I, I work in his factory
And I curse the life I'm livin'
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be
Yeah, wish that I could be
Lord, I wish that I could be, Richard Cory

He freely give to charity And had the common touch
They were grateful for his patronage
And thanked him very much
So my mind was filled with wonder
When the evenin' headlines read
That Richard Cory went home last night
And put a bullet through his head, hu

But I, I, work in his factory
And I don't dig the life I'm livin'
I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be
And I wish that I could be
Well, I wish that I could be, Richard Cory

Yeah, I wish that I could be
Lord, I wish that I could be
Yeah, I wish that I could be
Yes, oh I wish that I could be
Just like Richard Cory

Up Call My Name (alternate single version)

(Tommy Scott)

When this old world has let you down
And friends no longer want you around
When you feel burdened down with care
And troubles seem so hard to bear

Call my name
Hear me talkin' to ya baby
Call my name
Don't ya hear what I'm sayin'?
Call my name
A-whoa-oh-oh-oh
(Call my name)
And I'll be there

If ya feel that you're all alone
And sick inside away from home
When you no longer want to try
Or care if you should live or die

Call my name
Hear me talkin' to ya baby
Call my name
Don't ya hear what I'm sayin'?
Call my name
A whoa-woah-oh-oh
(Call my name) yeah
An I'll be there

Yeah

(Instrumental)

When evra'thing that you try has failed
And you never even get no mail
Well life to you seems such a bore
And blues come callin' 'round your door

Call my name
Hear me talkin' to ya baby
(Call my name)
Call my name
Don't you hear what I'm sayin'?
Call my name
Any time ya need me (call my name)
Anytime ya want me baby
All ya gotta do is (call my name) call me
FADES
All ya gotta do is (call my name) call me
An I be right there
