Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen's, "First We Take Manhatten"
Better Lyrics:
Ah dont like your west indulgence system
And ah dont like those tapes that sound so thin
Ah dont like what happened to my biscuit
First, we take Trollhatten, then we take New York
Original Lyrics:
I don't like your fashon buisness system
And I don't like those drugs that make you thin
I don't like what happened to my sister
First we take Manhatten, then we take Berlin
