gloria


composer
Written by: Van Morrison


publisher
Carlin Music Corp


background
"Gloria, which is of course almost a standard of any rock band, it's one of the first songs that a band learns to play. In fact you can go to a wedding, or anything - a Bar Mitzvah, or you go to see a band in a stadium now, Gloria is one of these rock-and-roll classics."

"Written by the Belfast child himself, Van Morrison. Gloria, we as a band played live many, many times, always was a particular favourite we would play. Gloria; sometimes it would start the set, sometimes it would end the set, sometime's we'd play in the middle." - Jim




lyrics
Like to tell ya about my baby.
You know she comes around.
She about five feet four.
A-from her head to the ground.
You know she comes around here.
At just about midnight.
She make ya feel so good, Lord.
She make ya feel all right.

And her name is... G L O R I....
G L O R I A - Gloria.
G L O R I A - Gloria.
I'm gonna shout it all night - Gloria.
I'm gonna shout it everyday - Gloria.
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah.

She comes around here.
Just about midnight.
Ha, she make me feel so good, Lord.
I wanna say she make me feel alright.

Comes a-walkin' down my street.
When she comes to my house.
She knocks upon my door.
And then she comes in my room.
Yeah, an' she make me feel alright.

G L O R I A - Gloria.
G L O R I A - Gloria.
I'm gonna shout it all night - Gloria.
I'm gonna shout it everyday - Gloria.
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah.

Looks so good - Gloria - Alright.
Just so good - Gloria - alright, yeah.
