Leon The Last Shadow Puppets – Is This What You Wanted Liedtext

You were the promise at dawn

I was the morning after

You were Jesus Christ, my Lord

I was the money lender

You were the sensuous woman

I was the very reverend Freud

You were the manual orgasm

I was the dirty little boy

And is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me?

Is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me?

You were Marlon Brando

I was Steve McQueen

You were K-Y Jelly

I was Vaseline

You were the father of modern medicine

I was Mr. Clean

You were the Whore and the Beast of Babylon

I was Rin Tin Tin

And is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me?

Is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me?

You got old and wrinkled

I stayed seventeen

You lusted after so many, baby

I lay here with one

You defied your solitude

I came through alone

And you said that you could never love me

I undid your gown

And is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me?

Is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me?

Yeah, is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me?

Oh, is this what you wanted

To live in a house that is haunted

By the ghost of you and me?
