They ought to hand the night a ticket
For speeding: it’s a crime
I had so much to tell you
But now it’s closing time
I don't know if he has done this before, haven't read all the other concert reports yet...
If I'm not mistaken, I think he also used these lines from the same song:
They're stacking up the chairs,
They're wiping down the bar,
I never got to tell you
How beautiful you are.
I'm pretty sure he used these lines at several of the other French shows too, though at this point I can't remember which ones.
All the best,
Maarten, I think it happened for the first time in Lisabon, Sept 10, according to Tipperary Ann's report in Lisboa thread:

Highlights for me were the slower version of "Chelsea Hotel", which I love, "Who by fire", always so dignified, and a really lively "Closing Time" - Leonard still amazingly energetic after hours of performing, followed by spoken lines from the "other" Closing Time, "Never Got to Love You", ( from Anjani 's "Blue Alert") , which got a big smile from Sharon. And I was delighted that he ended with "Heart with no Companion", which has always been one of my favourites, and sounds great in its current arrangement.
