The Voices of Bilthoven

Hallelujah – Lisa Lois


I HEARD THERE WAS A SECRET CHORD (MMMM)
THAT DAVID PLAYED, AND IT PLEASED THE LORD (MMMM)
BUT YOU (OEHH) DON’T REALLY CARE FOR MUSIC, (OEHOEHOEHOE) DO YA?
WELL IT GOES LIKE THIS: (OEHHOEHOEHOE)
THE FOURTH, THE FIFTH
THE MINOR FALL AND THE MAJOR LIFT (OEHHOEHOE)
THE BAFFLED KING COMPOSING HALLELUJAH (OEHHOEHOE)

HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH
(HA, HA, HA, HA)

YOUR FAITH WAS STRONG, (HA, HA, HA, HA) BUT YOU NEEDED PROOF
YOU SAW HER BATHING ON THE ROOF (HA, HAHAHOEHOEHOE)
HER BEAUTY AND THE MOONLIGHT OVERTHREW YA
SHE TIED YOU TO HER KITCHEN CHAIR
SHE BROKE YOUR THRONE, AND SHE CUT YOUR HAIR
AND FROM YOUR LIPS SHE DREW THE HALLELUJAH

HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH

WELL (AAAAHAAAA) MAYBE THERE’S A GOD ABOVE
BUT (AAAHAAHAA) ALL I’VE EVER LEARNED FROM LOVE
IS (AAHAAA) HOW TO SHOOT SOMEBODY WHO OUTDREW YA (AAAHAAHAAHAA)
AND IT’S NOT (NOT A CRY) A CRY THAT YOU HEAR (HEAR AT NIGHT) AT NIGHT
IT’S NOT SOMEBODY (NOT SOMEBODY) WHO’S SEEN THE LIGHT
IT’S A COLD AND IT’S A BROKEN HALLELUJAH

HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH
HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH, HALLELUJAH

HOEHOEHOEHOE AAAAAHHHHH
