Leonard Cohen Sneek Peek

Paramount Players are taking a break from Cleo and the Czar play to do a tribute to the life of Leonard Cohen. This coming Saturday at 7pm we'll be dancing to Leonard! 

His songs may not to popular but once you connect to one it's hard to not listen to the test of his art.

Here is a sneek peek to tide you over until then.... 

Leonard Cohen - Seems so long ago, Nancy - 1969

Here are the lyrics for you to sing along

It seems so long ago,
Nancy was alone,
Looking ate the Late Late show
Through a semi-precious stone.
In the House of Honesty
Her father was on trial,
In the House of Mystery
There was no one at all,
There was no one at all.
It seems so long ago,
None of us were strong
Nancy wore green stockings
And she slept with everyone.
She never said she'd wait for us
Although she was alone,
I think she fell in love for us
In nineteen sixty one,
In nineteen sixty one.
It seems so long ago,
Nancy was alone,
A forty five beside her head,
An open telephone.
We told her she was beautiful,
We told her she was free
But none of us would meet her in
The House of Mystery,
The House of Mystery.
And now you look around you,
See her everywhere,
Many use her body,
Many comb her hair.
In the hollow of the night
When you are cold and numb
You hear her talking freely then,
She's happy that you've come,
She's happy that you've come.
