Why Dont You Try  Leonard Cohen

Why don't you [A]try to do without[F#min] him?
Why don't you [D]try to live al[A]one?
Do you [A]really need his hands for your [F#min]passion?
Do you [D]really need his heart for your t[A]hrone?

Do you [E]need his labour for your [D]baby?
Do you [E]need his beast for the [D]bone?
Do you [E]need to hold a leash to be a [D]lady?
I kn[A]ow you're going t[D]o make, ma[G]ke it on your [E]own.

Why don't your try to forget him?
Just open up your dainty little hand.
You know this life is filled with many sweet companions,
many satisfying one-night stands.

Do you want to be the ditch around a tower?
Do you want to be the moonlight in his cave?
Do you want to give your blessing to his power
as he goes whistling past his daddy, past his daddy's grave.

I'd like to take you take you to the ceremony,
well, that is if I remember the way.
You see Jack and Jill they're going to join their misery,
I'm afraid it's time for everyone to pray.

You can see they've finally taken cover,
they're willing, yeah they're willing to obey.
Their vows are difficult, they're for each other,
so let nobody put a loophole, a loophole in their way
