"It is U2 at our funkiest. Sexy music. Sly and The Family Stone meets Manchester baggy. We came up with a few different verses but Edge really liked the nursery rhyme feel we ended up with... It's a song about a man living on little or no romance. We were going to call the album Fear Of Women at one point. Edge came up with the 'It's all right, it's all right' coda. He wanted to prove a point. He said, 'We've never had a song that says it's alright.' So I said, 'All right.' - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

It's alright, oh yeah, let's go
It's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways

Johnny, take a walk with your sister the moon
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
You've been living underground, eating from a can
You've been running away from what you don't understand, love

She's slippy, you're sliding down
She'll be there when you hit the ground

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways

C'mon child
C'mon child

Johnny, take a dive with your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things you can't explain
To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal
If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel
On your knees, boy

She's the wave, she turns the tide
She sees the man inside the child

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright
Lift my days, light up my nights, love

Do something funky, the Edge

One day you'll look back, and you'll see
Where you were held
How by this love , how by this motion
You could carry this feeling
Move on this meaning

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways

Oh yeah, shhh
Adam Clayton on the bass, now
Larry Mullen Jnr. On the drums

Oh shuttup, oh shuttup
I'll shut your mouth
C'mon shut your gob
C'mon shut your moaning
It's arlight chld
Sing, move it up

It's alright, sing
It's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
She moves with it
Jah move with it
Spirit move with it
We move with it
Jah move with it
Spirit move with it
Lift my days, light up my nights

My nights
Alright alright alright
What do you want
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
