  • Don't want to discuss it
    I think it's time for a change
    You may get disgusted
    Start thinkin' that I'm strange

    In that case I'll go underground
    Get some heavy rest
    Never have to worry
    About what is worst and what is best (get it)

    Oh oh Domino (all right)
    Roll me over Romeo
    There you go
    Lord have mercy

    I said oh oh Domino
    Roll me over Romeo
    There you go
    Say it again

    I said oh oh Domino
    I said oh oh Domino, dig it

    There's no need for argument
    There's no argument at all
    And if you never hear from him
    That just means he didn't call or vice versa
    That depends on wherever you're at
    Or and if you never hear from me
    That just means I would rather not

    Oh oh Domino
    Roll me over Romeo
    There you go
    Lord have mercy
    I said oh oh Domino
    Roll me over Romeo

    There you go
    Say it again
    Oh oh Domino
    I said oh oh Domino.

    Hey Mr. DJ
    I just want to hear some rhythm and blues music
    On the radio
    On the radio
    On the radio
    Uh-uh, all right
    Uh-uh, all right
    Uh-uh, all right
    Uh-uh
    Hear the band

  • Carol from WoodburyTo me the song is about the protest dynamics of the 60's. An example is the domino affect of the race wars following the slaying of Martin Luther King (or the current rioting after the police slay a black man).

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 27th 1970, "Domino" by Van Morrison peaked at #9 (for 1 week) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on November 8th and spent 12 weeks on the Top 100...
    It was track one of side one from his album "His Band and the Street Choir"; the album reached #32 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart...
    Two other songs from the album made the Top 100; "Blue Money" (#23) and "Call Me Up In Dreamland" (#95)...
    Mr. Morrison celebrated his 68th birthday four months ago on August 31st.
  • Bill from Pensacola, FlI think this song is about a man that needs to break up with someone and that doesn't want to explain it, discuss it, debate it, just forget about it and listen to the music that takes him away, Turn UP the Rythym and Blues, sing it Fats.
