The law

words Leonard Cohen, music Lewis Furey

(Valkyries) You are the messengers
Of celestial machinery
You only arrange
You cannot change the scenery

It is writ in stone
And capitals bold
You do, you do
Just what you're told

And you have fun
Lots of fun
Because you do
What must be done

We've told you once
And we'll tell you again
Creatures that fly
Will only die
If they lie
In the arms of men!

And this we must condemn!
