Post Fool Is The Man

Fool Is The Man

You never liked to get
The letters that I sent.
But now you've got the gist
Of what my letters meant.
Leonard Cohen
I am not sure that I can understand your reason.
"If you loved me then you should have stood my treason."

I am not sure that I guess the ways that you live.
"If you loved me then you should have let me leave".

I am not sure that I support your "living bare" -
Just changing lovers like there were your underwear.

I am not sure that I accept what you're living for.
You're enslaved by your freedom. Nothing more...

The bar is swinging.
The bard is singing.

One more shot of bitter rum -
Perhaps I'll be wiser then.
Yet I'm empty like a drum...
Oh honey... How fool is the man.

I am not sure that you'd regret for doing wrong.
You think it was all just a slip of the tongue.

I am not sure that you have ever liked my blues.
Your heart is a castle of ice with no clues.

I am not sure that you have something to tell
Since we belong to different circles of hell.

I am not sure that I can change all the bad that is done.
But I'm still calling you nightly just to hear that you're gone.

The bar is swinging.
The bard is singing.

One more shot of bitter rum -
Perhaps I'll be wiser then.

Yet I'm empty like a drum...
Oh honey... How fool is the man.

Интересно, весь текст вроде грамотный английский, а название абсолютно не по-английски...

Почему же не по-английски? Принятый оборот.
Fool is the man - человек глуп
Tender is the night - ночь нежна,(даже роман есть такой у Фитцджеральда)
Ну и так далее...

может все-таки?
