Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorned, imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now plead for me

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

I still think the Velvet Underground did it best, but it's never been a favorite of mine, in any iteration.
I dig this, and how it reminds me of Lou Reed, I love how the dark waves build and spill, again and again... 
Cool Version
The original lured you into a dangerous opium den. 

This cover promises to flense you, slowly. 
not just a velvet underground song, but a book https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
RIP, Mr. Beck. Thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us. 
Jeff and Johnny - a perfect pairing.

Rest easy, Mr Beck; we'll never hear your like again.
The first couple of lines of the chorus could easily be a Weezer song with the temp slowed way down
It's dark and weird for Jeff Beck, but totally appropriate for Johnny Depp. As usual, Jeff's guitar work  makes this piece sing. He will be sorely missed.
William says: "Pretty excellent, if you're into that kind of thing."  That tickled my funnybone.
while listening at work, I was torn between psd and keep listening.  Something pulled me in.   Wouldn't mind another listen ... 
I'm pretty impressed by how good this is
Did someone explain to Mr. Depp that the violence in this song is consensual?
Not really wild about this cover, and not wild about anything with Johnny Depp at all right now, for that matter.
Will definitely near to hear more of this…
more than a few - kinda empty
I'm not enthused about hearing this again.
VERY COOL.  play it some more!

Agree
Maybe gave Depp some leeway to do his thing on this?
I think this will grow on me in a very good way...
