Leonard Cohen We told you so tekst

We told you so

We told you dear

You didn’t have

To come here

The human life

Is full of quirks

We can’t work it out

Nothing works

It’s a lemon

This mechanic

Live, love, suffer

Die and panic

It lives, it loves

Suffers and dies

It eats cow’s meat

And apple pies

Dumb, dumb, dumb

And full of fear

Anxiety and strife..

This is the human life!

…We have many duties still

Much gold and silver light to spill

On anxious boys and frightened girls like you… We told you so

We told you dear

You didn’t have

To come here

The human life

Is full of quirks

We can’t work it out

Nothing works

It’s a lemon

This mechanic

Live, love, suffer

Die and panic

It lives, it loves

Suffers and dies

It eats cow’s meat

And apple pies

Dumb, dumb, dumb

And full of fear

Anxiety and strife..

This is the human life!

…We have many duties still

Much gold and silver light to spill

On anxious boys and frightened girls like you…
