  • There’s something that I’m watching
    Means a lot to me
    There’s something that I’m watching
    Means a lot to me
    It’s a broken banjo bobbing
    On the dark infested sea
    It’s a broken banjo bobbing
    On the dark infested sea

    Don’t know how it got there
    Maybe taken by the wave
    Don’t know how it got there
    Maybe taken by the wave
    Off of someone’s shoulder
    Or out of someone’s grave
    Off of someone’s shoulder
    Or out of someone’s grave

    It’s coming for me darling
    No matter where I go
    It’s coming for me darling
    No matter where I go
    Its duty is to harm me
    My duty is to know
    Its duty is to harm me
    My duty is to know

    There’s something that I’m watching
    Means a lot to me
    There’s something that I’m watching
    Means a lot to me
    It’s a broken banjo bobbing
    On the dark infested sea
    It’s a broken banjo bobbing
    On the dark infested sea Writer/s: LEONARD COHEN
