"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

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
Is she gonna 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

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 that 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
Oh love, it's alright
Lift my days, light up my nights, love
