Ode To Van Morrison (YouTube Tribute)

Ode To Van Morrison (YouTube Tribute)

Van Morrison broke my heart when I discovered my first childhood love.
I’d try to suppress my smile as his lyrics struck a chord.
He’d sing “sha la la la” – it was such a catchy tune
When he sung of the “Brown Eyed Girl” – I knew he sung of mine.

Van Morrison broke my heart when I fundraised for the club.
I played his tunes, I stole the hearts – and money – of our guests.
The boys and I then did him proud in Henley once we were done.
As we danced in the moonlight – and ’twas a fine and lovely sight!

Van Morrison broke my heart when I’d waited for my girl.
I’d searched for a long time and then it was finally done.
His words rang clear for those days that were to be.
As for that time I had been looking for someone exactly like her.

Van Morrison broke my heart when I reached my adulthood.
Good friends, fun chats, nice food, great drinks! A way to spend it true!
He did me proud when my friend insist the pub’s piano man “won’t do”
They kicked him off and placed me on, Van Morrison pulled me through.

Van Morrison brok my heart when I learned of “Crazy Love”
Sometimes you plan, those things work out; other times you fall in love.
But she had a fine sense of humour and I’d come to her when the sun goes down.
So things work out and that makes me smile, Van Morrison was right all the while.

However, Van Morrison broke my heart one last time.
My favourite song of his I played, sung and shared it with the world.
He broke my heart, he broke it hard but this time it really hurt.
His record company send me a copyright notice and told me where to run!

So that’s my lovely tribute to the message I got on YouTube from Van Morrison’s recording company:
