Madame Joy Lyrics - Van Morrison

Review The Song (3)



All the men would turn their head
When she walked down the street
Clothes are fine and hair that shine
Smiling oh so sweet, smiling oh so sweet

Got a taste of all religion
Comes on with the new
In her hair a yellow ribbon
And she's decked out all in blue
Oh yes in, decked out all in blue

Steppin' lightly, steppin' brightly
With her books in hand
Going to the university to teach them
Help them understand
And are helping 'em understand

And all the kids would love to see her
Follow in her steps
And tell her stories and adore her
Climb in through the fence
Climb in through the fence

Here she comes walking
Here she comes talking
I do believe it's Madame Joy
Walking past that old street corner
And she's looking for her boy
Oh yes she is, looking for her boy

Steppin' lightly, steppin' brightly
With her books in hand
Going to the university to teach them
Help them understand
Yeah, help them understand

I was looking at the way she moved me
And I was seeing every side
Tell me, can I learn the language
Have you got the mind, have you got the mind

Here she comes walking
Here she comes talking
I do believe it's Madame Joy
She's walking by that old street corner
And she's looking for her boy
Oh yes looking for her boy

And all the men would turn their head
When she walked down the street
Clothes refined and hair that shine
And smiling oh so sweet, oh yes, she's smiling oh so sweet
Smiling, smiling oh so sweet, yeah, yeah, yeah
Smiling, smiling oh so sweet

And all the men would
And all the men would turn their head around
When that woman walked down the street
When that woman walked down the street
When that, when that woman walked
When that woman walked, when that woman walked
When that woman walked, when that woman walked
When that woman walked, what she wore
When that woman, when that woman, when that woman
When that woman, when that woman, when that woman
When that woman, when that woman, when that woman
When that woman, when that woman walked
She just walked
Just kept on walking down the street
When she walked, when she walked down

I met her too | Reviewer: embudhoo | 11/19/09

Yes, I did. And like Don she belongs to another lucky fellow. But I am also lucky to have learnt the language. But in my case. the language I learnt it fron VanTheMan. It does not matter how many times I listen to him I keep geting surprised. Madame Joy makes me cry it is such a beautiful song



I've met her | Reviewer: Don | 12/13/08

I have lived this song, and I have met this woman. Paradoxically, she was born just a few years after this song was published. Odd, isn't it? She belongs to another lucky fellow, but I am richer for having learned the language from her.

I hope that everyone has a chance to meet a 'Madame Joy' sometime in their journey.



perfection | Reviewer: Aine | 11/27/08

I don't think, arguably, there is any other artist today that has the incredible back catalog that Morrison does. He is incredible in all his phases and all the genres he encompasses and then incorporates into his own genre that cannot be hemmed in with a name or description. The ending of Madame Joy is an example of VanTheMan becoming so enamored of the music, so completely owned by his composition that the words pour out without barely a breath....the jusic owns him as surely as he owns the music. It may be something he calls his job but it is obvious to me that this is more than a job it is all consuming, a passion. For this passion I am grateful, his passion comes through in the music, the lyrics and in his voice.......he is amazing. As a person I have heard many what could be described as negative personality traits, but I don't need to get to know him and be his best bud....I just need him to continue with his muse and his music. Keep it coming
