    1968-10-XX TTG. GLORIA

    GLORIA (Ivan ‘Van’ Morrison)
    [Most releases have the bass solo edited which removes the words in red Ha-ha-ha they obviously never listened to the rest of it very well!]

    Gonna try it, this is one, two, chuck-it-ah. One two, three, four…

    Well, she come around here
    Just about midnight-uh
    Lord, she made me feel so goo-ood-uh
    She made me feel all ri-ight
    And she spellt her name

    G, L, O, R, I-I-I-I, A
    G-L-O-R-I-A
    G-L-O-R-I-A
    G-L-O-R-I-A
    And that spell, an’ that spell-uh
    Gloria, uh, Glo-o-oria, Glo-oria, I said-uh, Glo-o-oria, yeah-yeah

    Now she come around to my house
    Just about midni-ight-uh
    And-uh she walks up to my street
    uh-Knocks on my door
    She come up my stairs now, can you dig it, ha-ha-ha
    And knock at my - one more time - door again
    She come-n across my room
    An’ I’m layin’ up there sleepin’
    Kiss me on my belly huh
    She made me feel like Bob Nelly
    And she said, oh-ah, “Hey, baby”
    Hey, hey, hey-ey baby
    Whoa-ay! baby-uh
    “I’ve come to, come to make love to you”
    An’ I say-uh
    “Hey girl. What’s your name-uh?”
    She said “It don’t make no difference anyway.
    But in the meantime while I’m platin’1 you
    You can call me Gloria.”

    “Gloria, now, Gloria, Gloria.”
    And she made me feel so good
    Whoa! made me feel so good, baby
    Oh! made me feel so good a-ha
    Made me lose my voice now
    Yeah, that’s all right, baby, a-ha
    Hey, baby

    An’ after all that I say woo-ee, yea-he-he-ah
    Yeah, you sure made me feel good, baby
    I’m sure some of you all out there got some girls named Gloria
    Like Mitch Mitchell has one named Gloria
    An’ I seen it all happen, huh-yeah
    You know we had a scene one night
    An’ I seen this little ‘booger bear’2 come around-huh
    She looked like “The Dragon of Carlisle”
    Her hair was that, [pop!] that long
    But, anyway, I seen her walk up the stair
    Walk up to his room
    And she said, ”Hey baby, I think my job is-uh make love to you.”
    An’ he played his drum

    [Drum break]

    Yeah

    That’s right-uh...yeah

    Ah-ha-ha
    You see, oh, I got-can explain this to you
    He didn’t know she was comin’ ha-ha
    That’s all right, yeah

    Noel Redding also got a girl named Gloria, heh-a-ha-ha
    An’ she looked like a alley bat though, h-ain’t nothin’ wrong with that
    An’ one time Noel was playin’ with himself3
    An’ she come knockin’ on his door heh-he-he
    An’ little Noel’s gonna take a solo on the bass then
    Showin’ that he’s appreciatin’ her love
    Even though she didn’t like ‘home made sin’4
    And her breath smelt like wolf pussy
    Yeah

    Fuck… her now ha-ha

    And while all that was happening
    I looked out the window
    An’ here comes the man with all the groovy grass
    And here we are freakin’ out, man
    You know we’re gonna get into somethin’ good
    An’ we’re layin’ back freakin’3 an’ smokin’…an’ jokin’
    Oh, so I hear ‘the man’ comin’
    ‘The man’ – the cops have came in
    Oh, Lord, have mercy
    I said, “Hey Gloria, I think it’s time to get the hell out o’ here.”
    I said, “Gloria, get off my chest, it’s time to get out o’ here.”

    Talkin’ ‘bout Gloria
    Wey-ey!

    Te-he-he-ah
    Wait till you hear the words of that-heh-he-he-ah

    1 ’Plating’ - English sixties slang word for oral sex, as in licking the
    gravy from a plate.

    2 Southern USA slang expression – same as ‘pussy’, literally ‘vagina’.
    3 ’Homemade sin’ – masturbation
    4 ‘Freakin’ USA slang for sex (as Jimi pointed out in a 1967 interview)


    GLORIA*
    Ivan ‘Van’ Morrison 1964 © Hyde Park Music. Original lyrics:

    Like to tell you about my baby
    You know she comes around
    She’s about five feet four
    uh-From her head to the ground

    You know, she comes around here
    ah-Just about midnight
    She make me feel so good, Lord
    She make me feel all right
    And her name is:

    G, L, O, R, I-I-I-I
    G-L-O-R-I-A
    (Gloria)
    G-L-O-R-I-A
    (Glo-oria)
    I’m gonna shout it all night
    (Gloria)
    I’m gonna shout it every day
    (Glo-oria)
    Yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

    She comes around here
    Just about midnight
    And she make feel so good, Lord
    I wanna say she make me feel all right
    Comes a walkin’ down my street
    Watched her come to my house
    She knocked upon my door
    And then she come to my room
    Then she make me feel all right

    G-L-O-R-I-A
    (Gloria)
    G-L-O-R-I-A
    (Glo-oria)
    I’m gonna shout it all night
    (Gloria)
    I’m gonna shout it every day
    (Glo-oria)
    Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-it’s so good
    (Gloria)
    All right
    She was so good
    (Gloria)
    All right
    Yeah, now

    *The music from this was used (uncredited) for ‘Help Me (Get The Feeling’) by Ray Sharpe – backed by King Curtis’ Kingpins, feat. Jimi! Curtis Knight plagiarised the title and general lyric idea, as ‘Get That Feeling’, for his vocal overdubbed edit of a short piece of a much earlier ’67, musically unconnected, jam at Chalpin’s studio.

    On the Dragon of Carlisle:

    Caesar Glebbeek: [What do You know about ‘The Dragon From Carlisle?]
    Jimmy Leverton [bass player with Engelbert]: “The only thing that I can piece it together with is on that Walker Brothers tour. Because we played Carlisle and Mitch was hanging out with this [woman] she was a bit of a dragon. It could be that. Not a very attractive woman. So it might be that terrible woman that Mitch was with on that tour, because they refer to unattractive women as dragons, don’t they? She left her ‘mark’ on him.”

    I doubt however it is this girl in the picture of Mitch and his wife in 1967, his Hanwell Carnival Queen of 17 years old. They married in August and the Carlisle gig was in April:

    Although taken in 1969, this would be another candidate, and I remember reading somewhere (Univibes?) that Hendrix refused to do a photoshoot with her, saying to her that she "didn't have to prostitute herself" (she was an actual sex worker, though):

    I have no idea what prompted you to put this up as this girl had obviously nothing to do with the topic. Anway Mitch did not marry her although they were briefly engaged to be.

    Page is not available, but the quote is about International Times writer Caroline Coon, who was not a "sex worker".
