The Leonard Cohen Shantymen

Now I've heard there was a secret chord, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
That David played when it pleased the Lord, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
It goes like this, the fourth the fifth, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
The minor fall the major lift, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire

Bird on a wire , so long, Marianne,
Round Cape Horn and back again, let's
Haul away with laughing Len,
And the Leonard Cohen shantymen.

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
If you play your cards right, you can spend the night beside her, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
And you want to travel with her and you want to travel blind, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire

Chorus

Oh, we are a jolly crew, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
We'll be slashing our wrists in an hour or two, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
It's a barrel of laughs you'll collapse in a heap, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
Headed for the unfathomable deep, oi, Halleluyah, bird on a wire
