First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin

Δύο εκδοχές του ίδιου τραγουδιού!
Μία από τον Leonard Cohen πιο πλήρης
και μια από τον Joe Cocker μάλλον πιο διαδεδομένη!

Και οι δυο είναι υπέροχες!



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, told you, I was one of those 

Ah you loved me as a loser, but now you're 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 
And I don't like these drugs that keep you thin 
I don't like what happened to my sister 
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin 

I'd really like to live beside you, baby ... 

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

I am guided 

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





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 The 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 That's Moving 
Through The Station 

I Told You 
I Told You 
I Told You I Was One Of Those 

I Don't Like Your Fashion Business Mister 
I Don't Like Those Drugs That Make You Thin 
I Don't Like What Happened To My Sister 

First We Take Manhattan 
Then We Take Berlin
