Leonard Cohen

"First We Take Manhattan"

They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
Im coming now Im coming to reward them
First we take Manhattan then we take Ber-lin
Im guided by a signal in the heavens
Im guided by this birthmark on my skin
Im guided by the beauty of our weapons
First we take manhattanthen we take berlin
Id really like to live beside you baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line there moving through the station?
I told you I told you told you
I was one of those
Ah you loved me as a loser
But now youre worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me
But you dont have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this
To let my work begin
First we take manhattan then we take berlin
I dont like your fashion business mister
And I dont like these drugs that keep you thin
I dont like what happened to my sister
First we take manhattan then we take berlin
Id really like to live beside you baby
And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey and the plywood violin
I practiced every night now Im ready
First we take manhattan then we take berlin
I am guided
Ah remember me I used to live for music
Remember me I brought your groceries in
Well its fathers day and everybodys wounded
First we take manhattan then we take berlin
