IT'S ALL RIGHT

Live 24 Jun 1993 version


[Bruce Springsteen (spoken intro):] Yeah. Hey, I'm gonna start this out. I'll cue you guys when to kick in, all right? All right. I want to thank everybody for coming out tonight, thank you! I want to thank all my friends that showed up tonight, kicking in for the food banks. All the old boys.

Bruce Springsteen:It's all right (it's all right)
It's all right (it's all right)
It's all right to have a good time
'Cause it's all right, girl, it's all right

Bruce Springsteen:And when you move it slow
When the lights are low
Move it slow, it sounds like more
And it's all right, (whoa, it's all right)

Bruce Springsteen:I said, now, it's all right (it's all right)
It's all right (it's all right)
It's all right to have a good time
'Cause it's all right, (girl, it's all right)
Come on, Bobby!

Bobby King:When you wake up early in the morning
Feeling sad like so many of us do
Hum a little soul
Make yourself a goal
Surely something's got to come to you

Bruce Springsteen:You know that it's all right (oh, it's all right)
It's all right (it's all right)
It's all right to have a good time
'Cause it's all right, whoa, it's all right
One, two, three, four!

Bruce Springsteen:Hey!

Bruce Springsteen:Well, it's all right (it's all right)
Yeah, it's all right (it's all right)
It's all right to have a good time
Yeah, it's all right, (whoa, it's all right)
Come on, Bobby!

Bobby King:Someday I'll find me a woman
Who will love and treat me real nice
Hum a little soul
Make yourself a goal
From morning, noon, and night

Bruce Springsteen:Yeah, say that it's all right (it's all right)
Yeah, it's all right (it's all right)
It's all right to have a good time
'Cause it's all right, (whoa, it's all right)

Bruce Springsteen:Hey, let's bring it down, now!
It's all right (it's all right)
It's all right (it's all right)
It's all right (to have a good time)
'Cause it's all right, (oh, it's all right)

Bruce Springsteen:Bring it way down, now!
Bring it way down, now.
I said that it's all right (it's all right)
It's all right to have a good time
(It's all right, whoa, it's all right)


[Bruce Springsteen (spoken):] Want to thank everybody for coming out and supporting those food banks, we'll be seeing you, have a great summer... All right, New Jersey! Are you ready to kick it in? Let's go! Huh! Come on, Zack!

Bruce Springsteen:I said that it's all right (it's all right)
Yeah, it's all right (it's all right)
It's all right to have a good time
Yeah, it's all right, whoa, it's all right
I said that it's all right (it's all right)
Yeah, it's all right, now (it's all right)
It's all right to have a good time
Whoa, it's all right, yeah, it's all right

[Bruce Springsteen (spoken outro):] Thank you! We love you, good night! Thank you!
Good night! Have a good summer! Thanks for coming out! Support those food banks!

The 24 Jun 1993 Show

The 24 Jun 1993 show at Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, NJ, was the second-to-last of the World Tour 1992-1993. Billed as "A Concert To Fight Hunger", it raised money for several food banks and relief organisations in New Jersey and New York. As Backstreets magazine reported, the Community FoodBank Of New Jersey, the Food And Hunger Hotline, and World Hunger Year each reaped more than $159,000 to further their efforts to eradicate hunger.
