Listen Mr. DJ
Won't you play me something slow
Play me the songs
For the lonely ones
Play me something
That I know

Hey Mr. DJ
I'm in a sad mood tonight
Play me something just for me and my baby
Won't you make everything alright

I'm gonna turn it way down low
Leave it on all night long
Till the morning comes
Like my lover my friend until the end
And that special someone

Hey Mr. DJ
Play me Rainbow 66
'Cos I'm drifting like a ship out on the fog
And I just don't know what's coming next

Gonna turn it way down low
Leave it on all night long
Until the morning comes
For my lover my friend until the end
And that special someone

Hey Mr. DJ
Play me Rainbow 66
'Cos I'm drifting like a ship out on the sea
And I just don't know what's coming next

Well, Mr. DJ
I'm in a sad mood tonight
Play me something for me and my darling
Want you to make everything
Alright

La, ta. ta, ta, tata...

you'd better stick with Justin Bieber hot shit...
Bill - please note that the lyrics showing here are for a different song. 

Yes - it's old and no one uses a full orchestra for popular music any more. Especially not this style with so many violin slurs (that's a music term, not an insult). Bear with us who remember some good times with this type of music.

I have to admit I prefer his output from way back when he was a young fart.

Ah....to have a least one pal who shares a healthy dislike for VM. In truth, for me, this song isn't nearly as bad as the rest of his yelping.
'Healthy'? 'Old' is not an healthy argument to put an artist, or whoever down, IMO. There are lots of people of Mr. Morrison's age who truly can be called old and some people have never been young anyway, it seems.

Take a look in the mirror my friend.

Yes, it was my upload. WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!! :mrgreen:
I love Van M, but not this kind of sound (loungey saxophone-focused, over-produced backup vocals, kind of boring). I much prefer to hear his Celtic-folky stuff, like the little-known and AMAZING album Veedon Fleece, or stuff off St. Dominic's Preview.
