    SOUL HEAVEN by Johnny Taylor

    Soul Heaven, Soul Heaven
    Had a dream last night
    Soul Heaven, Soul Heaven
    Last night I dreamed I was at a concert
    So many people, you had to stand in line
    One night only in Soul Heaven
    I didn't wanna wake up
    I was having such a good time
    All of The Bar-Kays were tuning up on stage
    Jimi had his guitar, gettin' ready to play
    Sam was singing "A Change Gonna Come"
    Otis was there, sittin' at the dock of the bay
    There was a party in Soul Heaven
    Superstars from the past
    Standing room only, so you better hurry
    Buy your ticket cause they're going fast
    Train & Miles (J. Coltrane, M.Davis) took mean solo
    Jr. Walker had 'em dancing in the isles
    They stood up when Jackie sang "Lonely Teardrops"
    When Sammy (Davis, Jr.) danced, the crowd went wild
    I think I saw Ella standing with Mahalia
    Backstage with Elvis with his blue suede shoes
    It started raining, everybody just stayed there
    To hear Z.Z. sing the "Down Home Blues"
    Well there's a party in Soul Heaven
    Superstars from the past
    Standing room only, so you better hurry
    Buy your ticket cause they're going fast
    There's a party in Soul Heaven
    Superstars from the past
    The great Al Jackson was a holding down the beat
    When Marvin sang "Let's Get It On", they jumped to their feet
    Everyone started screaming and gave a standing ovation
    When the curtain came up with the mighty Temptations
    King Curtis blew the "Soul Serenade"
    Thought I saw Lady Day (B. Holiday) sittin' in the shade
    I got two lovers and I ain't ashamed
    Lord I love the way sweet Mary (Wells) sings
    It was getting kinda late, it was time to go
    Tupac and Biggie (Smalls), they closed the show
    I didn't wanna wake up, I was having such a good time
    I didn't wanna wake up, I was having such a good time
    Pearl Bailey, she was there
    Duke and Count, they were there
    Woah Donnie Hathaway, I saw him there
    Dizzie and Satchmo, I saw 'em there
    It was a party in Soul Heaven
    You shoulda been there
    You shoulda been there
    Everyone was having such a good time
    Soul Heaven
    Soul Heaven
