Well you know sometimes it gets so hard
And everything don't seem to rhyme
I take a walk out in my backyard and go
Do do loo do do, do do loo do do

Waiting for the sun to shine
And you know sometimes it gets so painful
Just like talking to yourself
When everything don't seem to have no rhyme or reason we all go
Do do loo do do, do do loo do do
Waiting for the sun to shine

We move along
Keep singing our song
Straight to your heart like a cannonball
La la ti da, la la ti da...
Doo do loo do do.....
Waiting for the sun to shine

Well you know, everyday we hear it through the grapevine
That's why I'm so tired of hearing it through the grapevine anymore
Because you hear it through the grapevine
It's just a dirty rotten waste of time, we go
Do do loo do do
While waiting for the sun to shine

We move along
Keeping singing our song
Straight to your heart like a cannonball
La la ti da, la la ti da...
Doo do loo do do.....
We move along
Keep singing our song

It really doesn't matter what Van sings. It could be Baa Baa Black Sheep for all I care. It's the voice.

What amazes me is the rich diversity of the styles he chooses to sing in. This simple waltz—a 19th century vocal staple—is one of many. Well, okay, maybe it's not so simple...

an old-time favorite of mine
now I know why i have never heard this song. . . . it's a solid 4.5
Definitely minor Van, but enjoyable, especially with that Ronnie Montrose guitar lick.
At last a different Van Morrison song (meaning another choice from the RP staffers)  Yep, love it of course because it reminds me of happier times!
