First We Take Manhattan (Album Version)

First We Take Manhattan (Album Version)

Joe Cocker

They sentanced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
I'm coming now
I'm coming to reward them

First we take Manhattan
Then we take Berlin

I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
I'm guided by the birthmark on my skin
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons

First we take Manhattan
Then we take Berlin

I'd really like to live beside you baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line that's moving
Through the station

I told you
I told you
I told you I was one of those

I don't like your fashion business mister
I don't like those drugs that keep you thin
I don't like what happened to my sister

First we take Manhattan
Then we take Berlin
