Ballad Of Len -- Lyrics

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Len
Up on Mount Baldy he was contemplatin' Zen
Then one day checking his retirement stash,
He found out that he was plumb out of cash
(Swindled that is, cleaned out, busted)

Well, Our Man's future was looking insecure
Rob Hallett said "Len, you've gotta go on tour,"
Said on the road is the place you oughta be
So he bought a fedora and signed with AEG
(Worldwide that is, Europe, North America, Down Under)

Well the concerts were a hit right from the kickoff show
Fredericton welcomed him with a standing O
The Tour earned big bucks and even more esteem
Not too bad for a kid with a crazy dream
(White man dancing, cheerfulness breaking through, dum, dum, dum, da, doo, dum, dum)

In Vegas three years later the tour was finally done
When Leonard told the crowd, "God bless us every one"
Now Cohenites are happy from Manhattan to Berlin
Leonard's going back on tour -- here we go again
(Presales, VIP packages, Y'all buy that I'm Your Man biography now, ya hear?)
