Leonard Cohen’s Dramatic Performance Of First We Take Manhattan, Featuring Cameo By The Monkey – Amsterdam 2013

And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey and the plywood violin
I practiced every night, now I’m ready
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin


Javier Mas and Alex Bublitchi are smiling in these screenshots because they can see, although the viewer cannot, the stuffed monkey cradled in Leonard’s arms.
