Van Morrison The Street Only Knew Your Name Lyrics

Last updated: 05/19/2009 11:00:00 AM

Your street, rich street or poor
You should always be sure of your street
There's a place in your heart, when you know >from the start
And you can't be complete without a street

Keep movin' on, just like a train
Sometimes you gotta look back to the street again
Would you prefer all those castles in Spain
Or a view of the street from your window pane

When you were young, so young
So very very young
When you were young, so young
So very very young
And the street only knew your name
And the street only knew your name
And the street only knew your name, oh your precious name, precious name

There was Walter and joy, Kate and Roy
All hung around the corner lamplight
Get together sing some songs
Like Boppin' The Blues - you make me feel alright

That was long before fortune and fame
No such thing as a star when you've played that game
Everyone knew who everyone was
There was no pretence in the street no, no

When you were young, so young
So very very young
When you were young, so young
So very very young
And the street only knew your name
And the street only knew your name
And the street only knew your name, oh your precious name

And you walked around in the heart of town
Listening for that sound
And you walk around in the heart of town
Listening for that sound
Blue Suede Shoes, it was the Blue Suede Shoes

When you were young, so young
So very very young
When you were young, so young
So very very young
And the street only knew your name
And the street only knew your name
And the street only knew your name
