Last night I dreamed I was at a concert 
So many people, you had to stand in line
One night only in Soul Heaven 
I didn't wanna wake up
I was having such a good time
All of The Bar-Kays were tuning up on stage 
Jimi had his guitar, gettin' ready to play
Sam was singing "A Change Gonna Come"
Otis was there, sittin' at the dock of the bay

 There was a party in Soul Heaven  Superstars from the past
 Standing room only, so you better hurry
Buy your ticket cause they're going fast

 Train & Miles (J. Coltrane,  took mean solo
Jr. Walker had 'em dancing in the isles 
They stood up when Jackie sang "Lonley Teardrops"
When Sammy (Davis, Jr.) danced, the crowd went wild
I think I saw Ella standing with Mahalia  Backstage with Elvis with his blue suede shoes
It started raining, everybody just stayed there
To hear Z.Z. sing the "Down Home Blues"

Well there's a party in Soul Heaven  Superstars from the past
 Standing room only, so you better hurry
Buy your ticket cause they're going fast

There's a party in Soul Heaven  Superstars from the past
The great Al Jackson was a holding down the beat
When Marvin sang "Let's Get It On", they jumped to
 their feet
 Everyone started screaming and gave a standing ovation
When the curtain came up with the mighty Temptations
King Curtis blew the "Soul Serenade"
 Thought I saw Lady Day (B. Holiday) sittin' in the
 shade 
I got two lovers and I ain't ashamed 
Lord I love the way sweet Mary (Wells) sings 
It was getting kinda late, it was time to go
 Tupac and Biggie (Smalls), they closed the show
(Boo!)
I didn't wanna wake up, I was having such a good time
I didn't wanna wake up, I was having such a good time
 Pearl Bailey, she was there 
Duke and Count, they were there 
Woah Hathaway (Donnie), I saw him there  Dizzie and Satchmo, I saw 'em there 
It was a party in Soul Heaven 
You shoulda been there 
You shoulda been there  Everyone was having such a good time
Soul Heaven 
Soul Heaven
