The Lyrics

I've had this one in mind for a long time, this seemed like the appropriate moment to upload it.
Leonard Cohen, Jeffrey Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, Celtic Thunder, ms. k. d. lang

Bobby Dylan, Willie Nelson, Gina Spektor, Alexandra, and Susan Boyle

King David played a chord, the Lord liked it
Attaboy, Dave! Attaboy, Dave! Attaboy, Dave! Attaboy, Dave!

Len Cohen sang a song, and folks liked it
Music do you, Overthrew you, 'fore I knew you, what's it to you?

Then John Cale sang it, too, now it's famous
Come to fool you, who outdrew you, show me do you? Alleluya

Bon Jovi sang it, too, and then, Bono
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Il Divo sang it, too, it's in Spanish
Aleluya, aleluya, aleluya, aleluya

Aleluya

This once neglected tune
Is become
The world's all purpose song
On TV shows
God only knows

The words go on forever and ever
The words go on forever and ever (The words go on forever and ever)
The words go on forever and ever (The words go on forever and ever)
The words go on forever and ever (The words go on forever and ever)

Needed proof (Forever and ever, hallelujah, hallelujah)
She bathed on roof (Forever and ever, hallelujah, hallelujah)
Tied to chair (Forever and ever, hallelujah, hallelujah)
She cut your hair (Forever and ever, hallelujah, hallelujah)
Marble arch (Forever and ever, hallelujah, hallelujah)
A victory march
Cry at night, you've seen the light


The words go on forever and ever (The words go on)
The words go on forever and ever (The words go on)

Song so long forever and ever
It's way too long forever and ever
They'll sing this song forever and ever (They'll sing this song forever and ever)

Forever and ever, forever and ever (The holy dark, at Fenway Park)

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
