I'm in the Mood

You know what I mean
When I coo at you like this --
I'm ready to rut.

Jesus Christ

Christ might be cool now,
But he was unpopular
With his peers back then.

Johnny B. Goode

Johnny B. Goode's mom
Supports all his career goals.
She's a tastemaker.

She Belongs to Me (Self-Portrait)

Watch out for this one.
If you're searching for a gem,
Try another song.

She Belongs to Me

This chick is the best
So you'll do nice things for her,
But she doesn't care

Masters of War

Tin-pot dictators
Might destroy the planet, but
They should fear folkies.

Jamaica Farewell

A sailor gets laid
While at port in Kingston Town.
He misses the girl.

Half as Much

If you could love me
Half as much as I love you,
I'd be twice as happy.

Blue Yodel No. 1 (T for Texas)

Not just for Texas,
T starts the names of two chicks
Who messed Bob up good.


If you take the train,
Make sure you dress warm because
It might get chilly.

Railroad Bill

I fear Railroad Bill.
In this song he kills a guy
Whose name's MacMillan.

Good Rockin' Mama

Hot sexy mama,
Rocks me all the time. (That means
We have sex a lot.)

Why Do I Have to Choose?

One man's dilemma:
He wants two ladies at once.
What's wrong with that, babe?

Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl

Guy chats up schoolgirl.
Registered sex offender?
Or being friendly?

Tears of Rage

Unfaithful daughter
Casts aside family for gold.
Please go back to them!

No Time to Think

A muddled mess, this.
And it goes on and on and
On and on and on.

You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover

Looks like a farmer,
But hip-shakes like a lover.
One hot book-cover!

Love Her With a Feeling

Love her with feeling.
Shake it that way too, Bob says.
Or don't. Up to you.

Wildwood Flower

Guys say anything
To get girls out of their pants,
But they don't mean it.

Waltzing With Sin

Waltzing with sin is
Not the dance ticket you want.
It's not good for you.

A Voice From on High

Jesus paid for you
On a pretty big deal. So
You owe him one, dude.

We Three (My Echo, My Shadow and Me)

Did you know you were
Dating three of us at once?
Echo, shadow, me.

The Usual

Pink elephants, smokes
And your alcoholic friends --
You know: The usual.

She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain

Is she a freight train?
Then what are the white horses
Doing pulling it?

A Change Is Gonna Come

Bob takes Sam Cooke's song
Of civil rights and plays it
At the Apollo.

Here Comes the Sun

Bob tried this song once
And stopped part-way through. Maybe
He forgot the words.

Sinner Man

Sinner man runs, but
No one shelters him. God says:
Dude, give Hell a try.

Stones That You Throw

You know this lesson --
The one about glass houses:
Don't throw stones in them.

Thief on the Cross

That thief on the cross
Might have something to tell Bob,
Like, "Get religion!"

I Guess Things Happen That Way

Forgetting this girl
Ain't easy. Remembering
Ain't cool. There you are.

Hey Good Lookin'

When you meet hot chicks,
Ask them what's in the oven.
They'll give you some grub.

Sukiyaki (Ue O Muite Aruko)

GIs in Japan
After the war slow-danced girls
To Sukiyaki.

Every Grain of Sand

Dylan finds his place
In the cosmos. I'm like this
When I smoke some grass.

San Francisco Bay Blues

If your girl returns,
Take her for a walk by the
San Francisco Bay.

Somebody Touched Me

"Somebody touched me."
Jesus testimonial,
Or police report?
