Van Morrison – Mighty Like A Rose lyrics

You have drowned
A thousand sorrows
All in one,
And mixed with mugs, (? )
And millionaires
You have done.

Ya been and gone and done it
For a quid,
And just what you dont know,
Up there you got hid.

Lord, youre only
Fourteen summers
And God knows,
Yeah, child,
Youre gettin mighty
Like a rose.

You got pulled (? )
For tryin to straighten
Up this town,
And looked bashful
Bribin old, bent
Barrister brown.

Ya know, their turnin on
In the classroom
Aint the point.
Its when youre missin out
Teacher teach ya how to
Roll a joint.

Lord, hey,
While youre down there
Lookin up my nose,
Child youre gettin mighty
Like a rose.

Next time they try to fire me,
Ya make the scene.
Youre gettin sugar cubes
For breakfast.
Ya know what I mean.

And the, the hazard old, (? )
The wind blows
Through you ears.
Ya havent got enough
Of those
What ya
Havent got for years.
Yeah, but never mind
Steppin on my toes.
Yeah, child,
Youre gettin mighty
Like a rose.

Yeah, hey, hey,
Youre mighty like a rose.
Uh-huh, aww, aww, aww, aww, aww, aww,
Mmm-mm, mmm-mm, mmm-mm, mmm-mm...
