NICK CAVE lyrics : "Henry Lee"

"Henry Lee"(feat. PJ Harvey)

Get down, get down, little Henry Lee

And stay all night with me
You won't find a girl in this damn world
That will compare with me

And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La la la la la
La la la la lee

A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
I can't get down and I won't get down
And stay all night with thee

For the girl I have in that merry green land
I love far better than thee
And the wind did howl and the wind did blow

La la la la la
La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

She leaned herself against a fence
Just for a kiss or two
And with a little pen-knife held in her hand

She plugged him through and through
And the wind did roar and the wind did moan
La la la la la

La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
Come take him by his lilly-white hands

Come take him by his feet
And throw him in this deep deep well
Which is more than one hundred feet

And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La la la la la
La la la la lee

A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
Lie there, lie there, little Henry Lee
Till the flesh drops from your bones

For the girl you have in that merry green land
Can wait forever for you to come home
And the wind did howl and the wind did moan

La la la la la
La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
