I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord, but you don't really care for music do you?
It goes like this - the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Aleluia
Aleluia, aleluia, aleluia, aleluia.
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Aleluia
Hallelujah, hallelujah, aleluia, aleluia
Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at somebody who outdrew you
And it's not a cry
You can hear at night It's not somebody who's seen the light and It's a cold and it's a broken aleluia.
Aleluia, aleluia, aleluia, aleluia
Aleluia, aleluia, aleluia, aleluia.....
