  • Man can be king
    Seems to have everything
    But it comes with a sting
    When you were born to sing

    Reason doesn't walk in
    It's not done on a whim
    Passion's everything
    When you were born to sing

    Feeling good
    Singing the blues
    It ain't easy
    Keep on paying dues

    When it gets to the part
    Well let's not stop and start
    Deep down in your heart
    You know you were born to sing

    When you came in
    No original sin
    You were a king
    Because you were born to sing

    Reason doesn't walk in
    It's not done on a whim
    Passion's everything
    When you were born to sing

    Lord, feeling good
    Singing the blues
    Keep on keeping on
    Paying them dues

    When it comes to the part
    Well let's not stop and start
    Deep down in your heart
    Baby you were born to sing

    When it gets to the part
    When the band starts to swing
    Then you know everything
    'cause you were born to sing

    When it gets to the part
    When the band starts to swing
    Then you know everything
    'cause you were born to sing Writer/s: VAN MORRISON
