Bob will befriend you.
But there are 46 thingsHe won’t do to you.
This song opens the 1964 album "Another Side of Bob Dylan" and sounds to me like a clear statement of intent. It's either:
1. Baby, you can trust me. I just want to be your friend. Maybe with benefits, but just maybe (he doesn't want to knock us up).
2. My adoring fans, you must have me confused with someone else. I am here to be your friend, not your protest leader. This is, after all, "another side" of Bob Dylan in more ways than one. Writings about that period and his public statements indicate that he was quickly getting sick of the "spokesman of a generation" label, and it was time to move the songs in a different direction.
Meanwhile, here are the 46 things that Bob mentions in this song that he is not trying to do to you:
Forsake out (?)
Feel like me
See like me
Be like me
