Scott Walker - Manhattan Lyrics




Here you
are boy
here you are

Here you
are boy
Here you are

Here you
are boy
Here you are

I tip to Bengal
tip to Somal
I tip to Burmese
tip Kenyanese
see them sliding
through the sun

I tip Havanian
Abyssinian
Here Alaskan
Here Corsican

See them sliding
through the sun

it's on me
all my life
On me
all my life

Scalper
in the lampglow
scalper
on a chair

stick wiped
shirt?

and his arm
somewhere

Fleur de Lis
le wrist is
connected

chief of police
a la collar -
- bones disconnected

and here you
are boy
here you are

and hear the
word of the
lord

I tip to Bengal
no
he tips to
Bengal
tips to Somal

tips to Burmese
tips Kenyanese

See them sliding
through the sun

Scalper
in the lampglow
scalper
everywhere

stick wiped shirt?

say something
round that
shredded dirt

Say Fleur de Lis
Le jaw bone
connected

chief of police
a la ankles -
- connected

And here you
are boy
here you are

here you
are boy
here you are

he tips Havanian
tips Abyssinian
here Alaskan
here Corsican

we tip to
Russo

    I am brand new to this music. A Facebook group called "90's Grunge and Alternative Music" brought me here.

  5. flash gordon

    I understand why Mr Bowie was Bowie.. an excellent 'pupille' from the master...! All is here, RIP 'l'arsiste'...

  6. guntharis adolfo

    This Scott Walker music is kind of madness… out of control… apocalyptic! But it is great and It touches me deep inside of me! Gorgeous!!!

    Unfurnished and Unfinished rooms of Modernity?
    Nobody deserves torture. Only aesthetics should extra rendition.

  10. Daniel Bromfield

    facemelt

  11. Rainy

    The opera of nightmares. The voice of the shadows.

    Delhi Delirium

    You should try Devil Doll and see how that works out for you . Very disparate music, still , you´ll soon notice that ´grand guignol` description you just did .

  12. Wally Toynbee

    Great track!

  13. West Coast Experience

    saint etiennes interpretation of this song is so strange,. how they got where they took their version/cover ,..i don;t even know. this is the real composition,.  i guess theirs would be the flowery gossamer fogged london skied mandolined-up version of which description they might be most happy with,. Scott Rules.

    Alaïd Idnalid

    Then again, how would one reinterpret any song on Tilt without sounding a wee bit strange haha
