Now in Vienna there’s ten pretty womenThere’s a shoulder where Death comes to cryThere’s a lobby with nine hundred windowsThere’s a tree where the doves go to dieThere’s a piece that was torn from the morningAnd it hangs in the Gallery of FrostAy, Ay, Ay, Ay

Now in Vienna there’s ten pretty women
There’s a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There’s a lobby with nine hundred windows
There’s a tree where the doves go to die
There’s a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

-Leonard Cohen
