on that day lyrics – leonard cohen

some people say
it’s what we deserve
for sins against gd
for crimes in the world
i wouldn’t know
i’m just holding the fort
since that day
they wounded new york
some people say
they hate us of old
our women unveiled
our slaves and our gold
i wouldn’t know
i’m just holding the fort
but answer me this
i won’t take you to court
did you go crazy
or did you report
on that day
on that day
they wounded new york
