Memories

©Leonard Cohen, released on Death of a Ladies' Man (1977)

.

Frankie Lane, he was singing Jezebel

I pinned an Iron Cross to my lapel

I walked up to the tallest and the blondest girl

I said, Look, you don't know me now but very soon you will

So won't you let me see

I said "won't you let me see"

I said "won't you let me see

Your naked body?"

.

Just dance me to the dark side of the gym

Chances are I'll let you do most anything

I know you're hungry, I can hear it in your voice

And there are many parts of me to touch, you have your choice

Ah but no you cannot see

She said "no you cannot see"

She said "no you cannot see

My naked body"

.

So We're dancing close, the band is playing Stardust

Balloons and paper streamers floating down on us

She says, You've got a minute left to fall in love

In solemn moments such as this I have put my trust

And all my faith to see

I said all my faith to see

I said all my faith to see

Her naked body
