gonna be that way
Little girl you've been down here so long
I can tell by the way that you move you belong to

The Jackson Cage
Down in Jackson Cage
gonna be that way
Little girl you've been down here so long
I can tell by the way that you move you belong to

The Jackson Cage
Down in Jackson Cage
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
fact all the people with soul in this

A little Mahalia Jackson in there
One more Lucille, take it easy now

You know, I've met a lot of you months
name

I used to sing spirituals and I thought that this 
Was the thing that I wanted to do 
But somehow or other When I went in the army I picked up
at the lower Manhattan Ocean Club?
Looking like a taxi [Texan?] model
And with a voice like Mahalia Jackson.
She don't need to work in slots like this.
She
up, wake up, wake up, she said
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead

In the night when the moon casts no shadows at all
We sat by the fire as she
July
In a horror movie when the car won't start
You give it one last try

Guinnevere orders one more beer in the smokey pick-up bar
A burnt out
Days they force you
Back under those covers
Lazy mornings they multiply
Glory's waiting
Outside your window
Wake on up from your slumber
Baby,
Days they force you
Back under those covers
Lazy mornings they multiply
Glory's waiting
Outside your window
Wake on up from your slumber
Baby,
Glory days, well, they'll pass you by
Glory days, in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Well there's a girl that lives up
Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
The only one who did what can't be done
The only one who can insure saint's persistence
Who swallowed up death in his infinite existence
Omnipotent infinite
Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
you'd feel south
Up north's getting cold soon
The way it is, we're on land
So I'm someone to hold true
Keep you cool in this good life
Won't let you
?
(Glory!) In a wine bar world?
(Glory!) in a tenament block?
OK, lets hear it
(Up above, the angels look down
Singing their hosannas shining glory all
since his first song came out
Oh, she loves Alan Jackson
Makes me want to cuss

(Ha!) Oh, he hates Alan Jackson

Think I'll blow up his bus

Yeah,
Someday
my blessed Savior's name
When I get to glory I'm gonna sing sing sing
 
Up there no tears will blind my eyes
And I'll walk along by my Jesus' side
Now when I left out of Jackson
My baby was standin' in her do'
Now when I left out of Jackson
I rode that *M&O

Now, my baby like the Chevrolet
But I
don't get fed up
My people rise, my people fight
My people do alright
My people walk with pride and
We're marchin' side by side and
My people laugh,
Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say â??ooh-la-laâ??
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie, well

I told your mama that you'd be in by ten
Sammy, a little
Ray Charles, in fact all the people with soul in
This.

A little Mahalia Jackson in there.

One more, Lucille!

Take it easy now.
tell your pa 
What are we gonna tell our friends when they say 'ooh-la-la' 
Wake up little Susie 
Wake up little Susie, well 

I told your mama that
Tuesday morning, 8:15
I was riding to work on the
Jackson Park Express
Seemed like any other day
Then my whole world changed
In a way I never could
Glory days, well they'll pass you by
Glory days, in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
