Amazing that Bob, a true American poet / musician is still relevant today.

I said:

I said, if when I die I should reincarnate
I pray I might become as great
As say, the late Pope John Paul
Or no, wait, wait
Perhaps …. even Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan she says with eyebrows raised,
What's wrong with you, are you completely crazed?
What has he ever done except maybe phrased
Some words together that shocked and amazed
Perhaps, yes, even Bob Dylan

I know, I say, but man wouldn't it be cool
To be such genius as to play the fool
So you can challenge each and every rule
Of social behavior you learned in school, just like
Yes, Bob Dylan

She says, well, not that I could care
But he really does have that certain flair
Of the unwashed devil-may-care attitude
That makes you think he's laying bare the very soul of
Well, Bob Dylan

I say, I'm glad to see you're coming around
To Bob's particular unvarnished sound of words and music
Blended and forever bound with mystical appeal
To those of us who found early in his life
Perhaps, just perhaps the real Bob Dylan
