Versuri Leonard Cohen - Sing Another Song, Boys



Let's sing another song, boys 
This one has grown old and bitter 
 
Ah, his fingernails, I see they're broken 
His ships, they're all on fire 
The moneylender's lovely little daughter 
Ah, she's eaten, she's eaten with desire 
 
She spies him through the glasses 
From the pawnshops of her wicked father 
She hails him with a microphone 
That some poor singer, just like me had to leave her 
 
She tempts him with a clarinet 
She waves a Nazi dagger 
She finds him lying in a heap 
She wants to be his woman 
 
He says, "Yes, I just might go to sleep 
But kindly leave, leave the future, leave it open" 
He stands where it is steep 
Oh, I guess he thinks that he's the very first one 
 
His hands upon his leather belt now 
Like it was the wheel of some big ocean liner 
And she will learn to touch herself so well 
As all the sails burn down like paper 
 
And he has lit the chain 
Of his famous cigarillo 
Ah, they'll never, they'll never ever reach the moon 
At least not the one that we're after 
 
It's floating, broken on the open sea, look out there, my friends 
And it carries no survivors 
But let's leave these lovers wondering 
Why they cannot have each other 
 
And let's sing another song, boys 
This one has grown old and bitter
