"Fair Play" Van Morrison #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #FairPlay #UMe #ComeOnHoney #letsplay

Introduction:

“Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realize that that is enough to be happy. 
There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.” 
― Charlotte Eriksson

The song being featured is titled “Fair Play(2), and it was written and sung by Van Morrison. It is also the 1st track on his eight studio albumn title "Veedon Fleece" released in October 1974. His genre is  Celtic, folk rock, soft rock. 

Van Morrison is a brilliant song writer and he is one of my musical favorites. Originally, he is from Northern Ireland and I would say he has got that "Blue-Eyed Soul". Check him out!

Why did I pick this song? Read the words while listening to his rendition. What is he saying? What is in your heart? 

Maybe "This song is about taking a stroll through the countryside (somewhere different) with a beautiful fair headed woman. Geronimo is about a particular and peculiar sexual move involving leaping onto your partner. As they walk toward their abode, which is only one meadow away, they discuss this and who is going to be doing the leaping and who is going to be leaped upon. High-ho Silver is their name for an alternative move, they argue it out and in a game of wits Geronimo is the one they settle for as the fair headed lady comes on top. Fair play to her (Is it his turn)!"

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Fair Play"(3)

Fair play to you
Killarney's lakes are so blue
And the architecture I'm taking in with my mind
So fine...

Tell me of Poe
Oscar Wilde and Thoreau
Let your midnight and your daytime turn into love of life
It's a very fine line
But you've got the mind child
To carry on
When it's just about to be
Carried on...

And there's only one meadow's way to go
And you say "Geronimo"
There's only one meadow's way to go
And you say "Geronimo"

A paperback book
As we walk down the street
Fill my mind with tales of mystery, mystery...
And imagination

Forever fair
And I'm touching your hair
I wish we could be dreamers
In this dream, ohhh
Let it dream

And there's only one meadow's way to go
And you say "Geronimo"
And there's only one meadow's way to go
And you say "Geronimo"

Fair play to you
Killarney's lakes are so blue
High-ho silver, tit for tat
And I love you for that
High-ho silver, tit for tat
And I love you for that, love you for that, love you for that
High-ho silver, tit for tat, tit for tat
And I love you for that
High-ho silver, tit for tat, hah!
Yeah, yeah
And I love you for that

And theres only one meadow's way to go
And I, and I say "Geronimo"
And there's only one meadow's way to go
And we say "Geronimo"
Geronimo
And there's only one meadow's way to go
And we say Geronimo
And there's only one meadow's way to go
And we say Geronimo

Fair play to you
