  • Bob Dylan's poetry:

    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
    Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into sand
    Vanished from my hand
    Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
    My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet
    I have no one to meet
    And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.

    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
    My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip
    My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
    To be wanderin'
    I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
    Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
    I promise to go under it.

    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey ! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Though you might hear laughin', spinnin' swingin' madly across the sun
    It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
    And but for the sky there are no fences facin'
    And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
    To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind
    I wouldn't pay it any mind, it's just a shadow you're
    Seein' that he's chasing.

    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

    Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind
    Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
    The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
    Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
    Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
    Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
    With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
    Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
    Hey Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
    In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
