Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right

Look out your window and I’ll be gone
You’re the reason I’m trav’lin’ on

If you’re traveling till the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
For she once was the true love of mine


Like a Rolling Stone

You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?
People’d call, say, “Beware doll, you’re bound to fall”
You thought they were all kiddin’ you

I’m sailin’ away in the morning
Is there something I can send you from across the sea
From the place that I’ll be landing?

Wait for you to change your mind

I’m walking,
Through streets that are dead
Walking,
Walking with you in my head
My feet are so tired
My brain is so wired

Saying things you shouldn’t say

Ah, you’ve been with the professors and they’ve all liked your looks
With great lawyers you have discussed lepers and crooks
You’ve been through all of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s books
You’re very well-read, it’s well-known


Lenny Bruce

Never did get to the promised land, never made it out of Babylon…

Well, I ride on a mail-train, baby, can’t buy a thrill,
Well, I’ve been up all night leaning on the windowsill.
Well, if I die on top of the hill
And if I don’t make it, you know my baby will.

Tingle to his bones
‘Twas then he felt alone
And wished that he’d gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

Go away from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I’m not the one you want, babe
I’m not the one you need
