De 10 van woensdag

Dat ik heel erg verdrietig ben over het overlijden van Leonard Cohen, heb ik al verteld, en dat ik zijn liedjes en teksten altijd prachtig heb gevonden ook. Maar dat die teksten hier en daar ook ontzettend grappig waren, daar heb ik weinig aandacht aan besteed. Dat wil ik bij dezen goed maken: 10 stukjes songtekst van Leonard Cohen waar ik altijd om moet lachen.

  1. Tower of song: You can stick those little pins in that voodoo doll, I’m very sorry, baby, that don’t look like me at all
  2. That don’t make it junk: I tried to fight the bottle but I had to do it drunk
  3. Waiting for the miracle: I haven’t been this happy since the end of World War II
  4. Everybody knows: Everybody knows you’ve been discreet but there were so many people you just had to meet without your clothes
  5. First we take Manhattan: They sentenced me to 20 years of boredom, for trying to change the system from within
  6. Don’t go home with your hard-on: Don’t go home with your hard-on, you can’t melt it down in the rain
  7. Closing time: I loved you for your beauty. That doesn’t make a fool of me – you were in it for your beauty too
  8. Chelsea Hotel #2: You told me again you preferred handsome men, but for me you would make an exception
  9. Tower of song (ja, nog een keer): I was born like this, I had no choice, I was born with the gift of a golden voice
  10. Going home: I love to speak with Leonard, he’s a sportsman and a shepherd, he’s a lazy bastard living in a suit
