Regina Spektor – Human Of The Year (“…Til next year’s big human winner…”)


REGINA SPEKTOR LYRICS

“Human Of The Year”

Hello, hello
Calling a Karl Projectorinski
To the front of the cathedral
You have won, dear sir
May I congratulate you first?

Human, human of the year
You won [x2]

Why are you so scared
You stand there shaking in your pew
The icons are whispering to you
They’re just old men
Like on the benches on the park
Except their balding spots are glistening with gold

Human, human of the year
You won [x2]
You have won

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Outside the cars are beeping
Out a song
Just in your honor
And even though they do not know it
All mankind are now your brothers
And as the cathedral has spoken
Wishing well to all us sinners
And where the sight grew silent
Til next year’s big human winner

Outside the cars are beeping
Out a song
Just in your honor
And even though they do not know it
All mankind are now your brothers
All mankind are now your brothers

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hello, hello
Calling a Karl Projectorinski
To the front of the cathedral
You have won

Regina Spektor – Pound of Flesh (“…What’s a Pound of flesh between friends…”)


REGINA SPEKTOR LYRICS

“Pound Of Flesh”

If you’re never sorry
Then you can’t be forgiven
If you’re not forgiven
Then you can’t be forgotten
If you’re not forgotten
Then you can live forever
If you live forever
Then you’ll begin to dream
Of death…Ezra pound sat upon my bed
Asked me which books as of late I’ve read

Ezra pound sat upon my bed
Asked me which books as of late I’ve read
Asked me if I’ve read his own
And whether I could spare a pound
Of flesh to cover his bare bones
I says, man, take a pound, take two
What’s a pound of flesh between
Friends like me and you?
What’s a pound of flesh among friends?

But if you’re never sorry…

If you’re never sorry
Then you can’t be forgiven
If you’re not forgiven
Then you can’t be forgotten
If you’re not forgotten
Then you must live forever
If you live forever
You cannot be reborn
If you’re not reborn then
You can’t be a baby
If you’re not a baby
You can’t learn how to crawl
If you cannot crawl away
Then you must stay in bed all day
If you stay in bed all day
You’re sure to have some visitors

Ezra pound’ll sit upon your bed
Ask you which books as of late you have read
Ask you if you’ve read his own
And whether you could spare a pound
Of flesh to cover his bare bones
You’ll say, man, take a pound, take two
What’s a pound of flesh between
Friends like me and you?
What’s a pound of flesh among friends?…
