"Days Like This" as written by and V. Morrison....
When it's not always raining there'll be days like this
When there's no one complaining there'll be days like this
When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
Well my mama told me there'll be days like this

When you don't need to worry there'll be days like this
When no one's in a hurry there'll be days like this
When you don't get betrayed by that old Judas kiss
Oh my mama told me there'll be days like this

When you don't need an answer there'll be days like this
When you don't meet a chancer there'll be days like this
When all the parts of the puzzle start to look like they fit it
Then I must remember there'll be days like this

There'll be days like this

When everyone is up front and they're not playing tricks
When you don't have no freeloaders out to get their kicks
When it's nobody's business the way that you want to live
I just have to remember there'll be days like this

When no one steps on my dreams there'll be days like this
When people understand what I mean there'll be days like this
When you ring out the changes of how everything is
Well my mama told me there'll be days like this

Oh my mama told me
There'll be days like this
Oh my mama told me
There'll be days like this
Oh my mama told me
There'll be days like this
Oh my mama told me
There'll be days like this

    General CommentThis is, in my oppinion, one of van morrisons most under-rated songs ever. Instead of thinking like alot of people, that the occasional day like this, is a bad day and the rest are good, van says its occasionally there will be a good day thrown into the mix.

    General CommentThis is an older man's song - at least it is optimistic

    General CommentOne of Vans best, great feeling to it. As with many of his tracks, great to listen too when walking about Belfast on a sunny, day, Botanic, Ormeau Road, etc. lol

    General CommentThis song talks about the days when unexpected good things happen. It's refreshing. He makes the days/moments to be almost like a fairytale that mama told you about and how unexpected the days/moments seem. I love this song!
