First we take Manhattan

Song Author Leonard Cohen Lyrics by: Leonard Cohen Performer: Leonard Cohen Submitted by: Anonymous
They sen[Dm]tenced me to twenty years of bo[Am]redom
For try[Dm]ing to change the system from wi[Am]thin   
I'm com[Dm]ing now I'm coming to rew[Am]ard them
Fi[G]rst we take Manhatt[F]an,  [E] then we take Berl[Am]in   

I'm gui[Dm]ded by a signal in the hea[Am]vens   
I'm gui[Dm]ded by this birthmark on my[Am] skin
I'm gui[Dm]ded by the beauty of our we[Am]apons
Fi[G]rst we take Manhatt[F]an,  [E] then we take Berl[Am]in   

I'd [C]really like to live beside you, b[G]aby  [F]    
I love your bo[C]dy and your spirit and your cl[Am]othes
But you s[C]ee that line there moving through the st[Am]ation
I to[G]ld you I to[F]ld you I to[E]ld you I was one of tho[Am]se   

You lov[Dm]ed me as a loser but now
your wo[Am]rried that I just might win
You k[Dm]now the way to stop me
but you [Am]don't have the discipline
How m[Dm]any nights I prayed for this:
to l[Am]et my work begin
Fi[G]rst we take Manhatt[F]an,  [E] then we take Berl[Am]in   

[Dm]I don't like your fashion business, m[Am]ister
[Dm]I don't like these drugs that keep you t[Am]hin   
[Dm]I don't like what happened to your s[Am]ister
Fi[G]rst we take Manhatt[F]an,  [E] then we take Berl[Am]in   

I'd [C]really like to live beside you, b[G]aby  [F]    
I love your bo[C]dy and your spirit and your cl[Am]othes
But you s[C]ee that line there moving through the st[Am]ation
I to[G]ld you I to[F]ld you I to[E]ld you I was one of tho[Am]se   

And I t[Dm]hank you for those items that you [Am]sent me
The [Dm]monkey end the plywood viol[Am]in   
I pr[Dm]acticed every night and now I'm r[Am]eady   
Fi[G]rst we take Manhatt[F]an,  [E] then we take Berl[Am]in   

Rem[Dm]ember me, I used to live for m[Am]usic   
Rem[Dm]ember me, I brought your groceries i[Am]n   
It's Fa[Dm]ther's Day and everybody's w[Am]ounded
Fi[G]rst we take Manhatt[F]an,  [E] then we take Berl[Am]in   

They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
I'm coming now I'm coming to reward them
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I'd 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 I told you I was one of those

You loved me as a loser but now
your worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me
but you don't have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this:
to let my work begin
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I don't like your fashion business, mister
I don't like these drugs that keep you thin
I don't like what happened to your sister
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I'd 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 I told you I was one of those

And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey end the plywood violin
I practiced every night and now I'm ready
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

Remember me, I used to live for music
Remember me, I brought your groceries in
It's Father's Day and everybody's wounded
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin
