Is This What You Wanted Lyrics

Artist:leonard cohen

Songs Title:is this what you wanted

You were the promise at dawn

I was the morning after

You were jesus christ my lord

I was the money lender

You were the sensitive woman

I was the very reverend freud

You were the manual orgasm

I was the dirty little boy

And is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me

Is this what you wanted

You were marlon brando

I was steve mcqueen

You were k y jelly

I was vaseline

You were the father of modern medicine

I was mr clean

You where the whore and the beast of babylon

I was rin tin tin

And is this what you wanted

 

And is this what you wanted

 

You got old and wrinkled

I stayed seventeen

You lusted after so many

I lay here with one

You defied your solitude

I came through alone

You said you could never love me

I undid your gown

And is this what you wanted

 

And is this what you wanted

 

I mean is this what you wanted

 

Thats right is this what you wanted
