You Got Me Singing




You got me singing
Even tho’ the news is bad
You got me singing
The only song I ever had


You got me singing
Ever since the river died
You got me thinking
Of the places we could hide


You got me singing
Even though the world is gone
You got me thinking
I’d like to carry on


You got me singing
Even tho’ it all looks grim
You got me singing
The Hallelujah hymn


You got me singing
Like a prisoner in a jail
You got me singing
Like my pardon’s in the mail


You got me wishing
Our little love would last
You got me thinking
Like those people of the past


Writer and performer: Leonard Cohen

    1. It's wonderful you like him as well GWTNN. Some of the lyrics:
      You got me singing
      Like a prisoner in a jail
      You got me singing
      Like my pardon’s in the mail

      Isn't that poetry brilliant in simplicity?

      It is wonderful of you to comment,
      Han
