Up Kingdom Hall

(Van Morrison)
So glad to see you
So glad you're here
Come here beside me now
We can clear inhibition away
All inhibitions
Throw them away
And when we dance like this
Like we've never been dancin' before

Chorus:
Oh, they were swingin'
Down at Kingdom Hall
Oh, bells were ringin'
Down at the Kingdom Hall
A choir was singin'
Down at the Kingdom Hall
Hey, liley, liley, liley
Hey, liley, liley, low
Do do do do do do, do
Do do do do do do
Do do do do do do, do
Do do do do do do

Good body music
Brings you right here
Free flowin' motion now
When we're shakin' it out on the floor
Good rockin' music
Down in your shoes
And when we dance like this
Like we've never been dancin' before

Repeat Chorus

Down at the Kingdom Hall
They were havin' a party
They were havin' a ball
Bells were ringing out
And the choir was singin'
Hey, liley, liley, liley
Hey, liley, liley, low
Do do, do do, do do, do do
Sugar was there
Did you see Sugar
Down at the Kingdom Hall
Sugar was tough

Up Checkin' It Out

(Van Morrison)
We've got to put our heads together
I'm sure that we can work it out
I'm weighin' up the situation
And checkin' it out
Takin' it further
Takin' it further
Checkin' it out

This is a workin' situation
I'm tellin' you without a doubt
We've gotta pull it all in tight, baby
Checkin' it out
Takin' it further
Takin' it further
Checkin' it out

And all the obstacles along the way
Sometimes may feel so tremendous
There are guides and spirits all along the way
Who will befriend us

Let's talk it out across the table
Make sure that we leave nothin' out
Get into it like a meditation
Start checkin' it out
Takin' it further
Takin' it further
Checkin' it out

And all the obstacles along the way
Sometimes may feel so tremendous
There are guides and spirits all along the way
Who will befriend us

Let's talk it out across the table
Make sure that we leave nothin' out
Get into it like a meditation
Start checkin' it out
Takin' it further
Takin' it further
Checkin' it out

Checkin' it out, now baby
Checkin' it out checkin' it out
You meditate, you meditate
You meditate
And you come back
You come back

Up Natalia

(Van Morrison)
I'm walkin' down the street
I'm on that midnight beat
I'm on a lonely avenue
Baby, won't you walk with me
Baby, won't you talk with me
Oh that's all I want you to do, now
Walk with me
Talk to me
Call your name out

Chorus:
Na Na, Na Na, Na Na
Na Na, Na Na, Na Na
Na Na, Na Na, Na Na, Natalia
Here on a summer night
I wanna kiss and hold you tight
Just the way we used to do
Walkin' down the same old street
People that we used to meet
Such a long, long time ago, now
Walk with me
Talk to me
And I call out your name

Repeat Chorus Two Times

On a magic night like this
I hunger for your kiss
On a magic night like this

Repeat Chorus

Walk with me
Talk with me
Walk with me
Talk with me
Natalia, Natalia, Natalia
Natalia, Natalia, Natalia

Up Venice U.S.A.

(Van Morrison)
Found myself, found myself
Oh, in a restaurant in Venice
Found myself
Oh, in a restaurant in Venice
I was talkin' to my baby
In a restaurant down in Venice
When I found myself
Down in Venice
And I'm cryin'
But my tears, but my tears
Are filled with joy
And I'm walkin' in Venice
And I'm cryin'

Chorus:
Dum derra dum dum diddy diddy dah dah
Dum derra dum dum diddy diddy dah dah
Dum derra dum dum diddy diddy dah dah
Dum derra dum dum diddy diddy dah dah
Dum derra dum dum diddy diddy dah dah
Dum derra dum dum diddy diddy dah dah

As I'm leaving Venice, as I'm leaving Venice
As I'm leaving Venice
All the streets are wet with rain
And in my memory, and in my memory
And in my memory
I remember it well

And I take a stroll
Oh, see the ships come sailing in
In the harbor in the harbor
Down in Venice

And I'm cryin'
But my tears, but my tears
Are filled with joy
And I'm walkin' in Venice
And I'm cryin'

Repeat Chorus

Walkin' in Venice and I'm cryin'
Oh, as I'm walkin' in Venice, walkin' in Venice
And I'm cryin'
Well, I'm walk, walk, walk, walk, walk, walk walk, walk
Walkin' in Venice
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Well, I walk and I walk and I walk and I walk
Well, I'm walkin' in Venice
I walk and I walk and I walk
And I feel you and I see you as I'm walkin'
Down in Venice
Now sing a song, goes like this:

Repeat Chorus & Fade

Up Lifetimes

(Van Morrison)
You sit in silence
And the river answers
And I have loved you many, many years
I saw you standing by the wonderous river
And I have come today
To calm your fears

Those lifetimes
So many lifetimes
With you

The boatman singin' far across the water
What is this feelin' in my heart and soul
The nighttime angel spreads her wings around me
And I feel the sadness
And the river flows

Those lifetimes
So many lifetimes
With you

Listen to the music inside
That is all that you have to do
Listen to the music inside
Can't you hear what it says to you

And I shall get to know you
In these lifetimes
In awe and wonder
On down through the years
The nighttime angel spreads her wings around me
I feel the silence
And my doubts are cleared

Those lifetimes
So many lifetimes
With you

Listen to the music inside
That is all that you have to do
Listen to the music inside
Can't you hear what it says to you

Listen to the music inside
That is all that you have to do
Listen to the music inside
Can't you hear what it says to you

Up Wavelength

(Van Morrison)
This is a song about your wavelength
And my wavelength, baby
You turn me on
When you get me on your wavelength
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
With your wavelength
Oh, with your wavelength
With your wavelength
With your wavelength
Oh mama, oh mama, oh mama, oh mama oh mama, oh mama

Wavelength
Wavelength
You never let me down—no
You never let me down—no

When I'm down you always comfort me
When I'm lonely you see about me
You are ev'ry where you're 'sposed to be
And I can get your station
When I need rejuvenation

Wavelength
Wavelength
You never let me down—no
You never let me down—no

I heard the voice of America
Callin' on my wavelength
Tellin' me to tune in on my radio
I heard the voice of America
Callin' on my wavelength
Singin' "Come back, baby
Come back
Come back, baby
Come back"

Do do do dou-dit do do doudit do do do do do
Do do do doudit do do doudit do do do do do

Won't you play that song again for me
About my lover, my lover in the grass, yeah, alright
You have told me 'bout my destiny
Singin' "Come back, baby
Come back
Come back, baby
Come back"

On my wavelength
Wavelength
You never let me down—no
You never let me down—no
When you get me on
When you get me on your wavelength
When you get me
Oh, yeah, Lord
You get me on your wavelength

You got yourself a boy
When you get me on
Get me on your wavelength
Ya radio, ya radio, ya radio
Ya radio, ya radio, ya radio

Up Santa Fe

(Van Morrison and Jackie De Shannon)
Train wheels runnin' down an open track
In my mem'ry time to take me back
Are you goin are you goin'

To Santa Fe
Do you need it
Can you feel it in the same old way
I can feel it from the mountain top
Runnin' down to the foamy brine
In a rest'rant 'cross a table top
Looking into a glass of wine
Whispering in the evening breeze
Green leaves—glist'ning eucalyptus trees
Can you hear them
Or get near them

Oh, Santa Fe
Do you need it
Can you feel it in the same old way
I can feel it when it all goes down
Look around and it's happening
Look around and see what I have found
And it's more than a song to sing
In the night I hear you callin'
And I'm thinkin' of you, darlin'

Santa Fe
Do you need it
Can you feel it in the same old way
I can feel it when it all goes down
Look around and it's happening
Look around and see what I have found
And it's more than a song to sing
And it's more, more than a song to sing

Up Beautiful Obsession

(Van Morrison)
And it goes out, and it comes back
It is a feeling it's a feelin'
And when you do it
And the more you do it
And the more you do it
It becomes a beautiful obsession
A beautiful obsession
A beautiful a beautiful obsession, obsession, yeah

It's a feelin'
It's a feelin'
It's a feelin'
In your heart, in your soul
In your being, yeah
It's a beautiful obsession
And it makes you feel
And it's more than a song to sing
And it's more, more, more
Than a song to sing

Let the cowboy ride
Let the cowboy ride
Let the cowboy ride

Up Hungry For Your Love

(Van Morrison)
I'm hungry for your love
I'm hungry for your love
I'm hungry for your love
But I can wait now

I'm on the telephone
And I am all alone
I'm on the telephone
And we're connected

Chorus:
I got such a lot of love
I wanna give it to you
I got such a lot of love
I wanna give it to you
I got such a lot of love
I wanna give it to you

And though we're far apart
You are here in my heart
And though we're far apart
You're part of me now

And after all the years
And after all the tears
And after all the tears
There's just the truth now

Repeat Chorus

Well, I'm hungry for your love
Hungry for your love
Well, I'm hungry, yeah, well, I'm hungry
For your love now

I love you in buckskin, yeah, yeah
I love you in buckskin, yeah, yeah
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you now

I'm hungry for your love
I'm hungry for your love
I'm hungry for your love

Up Take It Where You Find It

(Van Morrison)
Men saw the stars at the edge of the sea
They thought great thoughts about liberty
Poets wrote down words that did fit
Writers wrote books
Thinkers thought about it

Take it where you find it
Can't leave it alone
You will find a purpose
To carry it on
Mainly when you find it
Your heart will be strong
About it

Many's the road I have walked upon
Many's the hour between dusk and dawn
Many's the time
Many's the mile
I see it all now
Through the eyes of a child

Take it where you find it
Can't leave it alone
You will find a purpose
To carry it on
Mainly when you find it
Your heart will be strong
About it

Chorus:
Lost dreams and found dreams
In America
In America
In America
Lost dreams and found dreams
In America
In America
In America

And close your eyes
Leave it all for a while
Leave the world
And your worries behind
You will build on whatever is real
And wake up each day
To a new waking dream

Take it where you find it
Can't leave it alone
You will find a purpose
To carry it on
Mainly when you find it
Your heart will be strong
About it

Repeat Chorus

Change, change come over
Change come over
Talkin' about a change
Change, change
Change come over, now
Change, change, change come over

I'm gonna walk down the street
Until I see
My shining light
I'm gonna walk down the street
Until I see
My shining light
I'm gonna walk down the street
Until I see
My shining light
I'm gonna walk down the street
Until I see
My shining light
I see my light
See my light
See my shining light
I see my light
See my light
See my shining light

Repeat Chorus Two Times & Fade
