Lyric Sheets: Laughing Len
Friday 17 October 1997
Draw the curtains, dim the light
Your partner's gone for good
Should you decide to hang
Or slit your wrists, you should
But if you're still in any doubt
Get the Leonard Cohen out
Leonard Cohen? Ah. What
He's seen you through it all
And waits in dusty corners
For the jilted lover's call
Or nestles in your record set
On stand-by like a country vet
The bedsit weeps. The attic sighs
There's nothing else will do
And Morrissey might be too
For what you're going through
Make sure there's no-one else
And Laughing Len will sort
Pop the pill, turn on the gas
Or kick the chair away
The chances are the song
Be grinding on next day
But look out for a mega hit
If EXIT ever go legit
