by his own hand

Es cierto. Desconozco las causas de esa práctica, pero es real: uno escucha una canción de Cohen y dan ganas de cambiarle la letra. Quedan para la historia regional de la infamia "Yo soy tu acá" y "¿Quién por huevos?", mis lamentables versiones de "I'm Your Man" y "Who by Fire". Pero esta tipa me ganó de calle:

“Who by Fire” ...this is a song that becomes almost unlistenable with one subtle change: imagine you don't know the title or lyrics and merely replace each intonation of "who" with the word it really sounds like—"poo." "Poo in your merry merry month of May / Poo by very slow decay," "Poo by barbiturate," "Poo by avalanche / Poo by powder," "Poo by accident," "Poo in this mirror / Poo by His Lady's command / Poo by his own hand." And Poo, shall I say, is calling? Damn right it is. Top Ten Funniest Leonard Cohen Songs
