I heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
Well it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth 
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing hallelujah

 Hallelujah  Hallelujah  Hallelujah  Hallelujah 

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah 

 Hallelujah  Hallelujah  Hallelujah  Hallelujah 

 Maybe there's a God above 
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it's not a cry that you hear at night 
It's not someone who's seen the light 
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

(Hallelujah) hallelujah 
(Hallelujah) hallelujah 
(Hallelujah) hallelujah 
(Hallelujah) hallelujah 
(Hallelujah) hallelujah 
(Hallelujah) hallelujah 
(Hallelujah) hallelujah 
(Hallelujah) hallelujah 

 Hallelujah 
Hallelujah
