Best Closing Time Video Of 2013 Leonard Cohen Tour – Vienna

Ah we’re drinking and we’re dancing
And the band is really happening
And the Johnny Walker wisdom running high
And my very sweet companion
She’s the angel of compassion
She’s rubbing half the world against her thigh
And every drinker every dancer
Lifts a happy face to thank her
The fiddler fiddles something so sublime
All the women tear their blouses off
And the men they dance on the polka-dots
And it’s partner found, it’s partner lost
And it’s hell to pay when the fiddler stops
It’s closing time


Leonard Cohen – Closing Time
