Van Morrison Sweet Thing Lyrics

Last updated: 07/30/2013 07:36:13 AM

An' I will stroll the merry way,
An' jump the hedges first.
An' I will drink the clear, clean water,
For to quench my thirst.
An' I shall watch the ferry-boats an' they'll get high.
On a bluer ocean, against tomorrow's sky.
An' I will never grow so old again.
An' I will walk and talk, in gardens all wet with rain.

Oh-woh, y' sweet thing, y' sweet thing.
Yeah-yeah-ah, sweet thing, yeah-a-yeah.
Ah-lay-lay-lay-lay, lay, lay, my, my sweet thing.
An' I shall drive my chariot, down your streets and cry.
'Hoy it's me, I'm dynamite an' I don't know why'.
An' you shall take me strongly in your arms again.
An' I would not remember that I ever felt the pain.
We shall walk and talk, in gardens all misty wet,
All misty wet with rain,(nah-ah),
An' I will never, never, never grow so old again.

Oh-woh-woh, you sweet thing.
Oh-woh-woh, you sweet thing, sweet thing.
My, my, my, my, my m-my my my........
An' I will raise my hand up into the night cloud's sky.
An' count the stars that 'r shin'n in your eye.
Ahh, just to dig it all an' not to wonder, that's just fine.
An' I'll be satisfied, not to read in between the lines.
An' I will walk and talk, in gardens all wet with rain.
An' I will never ever, ever, ever grow so old again.

Oh-woh, sweet thing. Woh-woh-woh, sugar baby.( Hahah....)
Oh-woh, sweet thing. Sugar baby, sugar baby, sugar baby.
With your champagne eyes,
An' your saint-like smile.

I hope that all those people " Of a Certain Age " appreciate my interpretation of the above lyrics.... and, incidentally, I'm totally with the Review above...We all remember what once was....( You youngsters will get it, one day )[Oh Boy will you Get It]...It seems to me, purely a personal opinion, but a lot of Van Morrison's lyrics seem to refer to the past and what was, or, more pointedly, what Might have been.... But, there again, that's life, Innit ??.....

beautiful wings | Reviewer: thalia dalke | 8/31/09

its of course anything of how you would want the song to go and be about. it always reminds me of my own true love, sunrise is beautiful but it always doesnt last, we were beautiful and we didnt always last and i love him so.

he wrote me many poems, one going along with this song. he plays the guitar, very good.

when is grows much older i hope to see him drive his chariot up my streets. haha :)

sqweak out.
