It's All in the Game
Van Morrison Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yeah
Yeah

Many a tear has to fall
Oh, but it's all, it's all in the game, child

It's all in the wonderful game
That we know as love, ooh

Yeah, you had words with him
And your future's looking dim
But these things, your heart can rise above

Once in a while he won't call, he won't call
But I heard you, it's all in the game

Soon he, soon he will be there
With a small, a small bouquet, he will

And he will kiss your lips
And caress you, just like that, touch you
Yeah, and your heart will, yeah
Fly away

You had words, wordes with him
And your future was looking, don't you know, darling
But these things your heart, these things, can rise above

Once in a while he won't, he won't, he won't call
But you gotta be patient

Soon he'll be there by your side
With a small, with a small bouquet

And he'll kiss your lips
And caress your fingertips
Just like that
And your heart will fly away
Listen, listen, listen, listen
He will kiss
Your lips, and, and, and touch you




And you will feel, you will feel like you're gonna fly
Fly
