Is this world spinning round..?
Has this ship run aground?
What’s that shape?
What’s that sound?
That’s just me falling down

Some of us are free and some are bound
Some will swim and some will drown
Some of us are saints while some are clowns
Just like me they’re all falling down

I lied to the nation while my reputation ran dry
From my lungs to my liver, I clung to the river bank’s side
Now I’m back in the water doing what I ought to and trying to lead an ordinary life

Is this world spinning round..?
Has this ship run aground?
What’s that shape?
What’s that sound?
That’s just me falling down

Some of us are green while some are brown
Some are lost and some are found
Sight unseen and sound on sound
Pray for me, I’m falling down

I was lost in the jungle and crossed over enemy lines
I got a red nose by sleeping under hedgerows at night
I tried levitation, and flying in formation, but heaven knows the weight of these crimes

Is this world spinning round..?
Has this ship run aground?
What’s that shape?
What’s that sound?
That’s just me falling down

Falling down

If Memories Were All I Sang then I Would Rather Drive a Truck

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
It was a chance to share old memories and play our songs again

When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
Yet no one recognized me because I didn’t look the same

It’s all right now
I learned my lesson well
You can’t please everyone so you have got to please yourself

People came from miles around
Everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus
There was magic in the air

And over in the corner—much to my surprise—Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan’s shoes and was wearing his disguise

It’s all right now
I learned my lesson well
You can’t please everyone so you have got to please yourself

I played them all the old songs and thought that’s why they came
No one heard the music because we didn’t look the same

I said hello to Mary Lou—she belongs to me
When I sang a song about a honky-tonk, it was time to leave

It’s all right now
I learned my lesson well
You can’t please everyone so you have got to please yourself

Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode
He was playing guitar like a ringing-bell and looking like he should

If you got to play at garden parties, I wish you a lot of luck
If memories were all I sang then I would rather drive a truck

It’s all right now
I learned my lesson well
You can’t please everyone so you have got to please yourself

I Need Your Touch, Because it Means So Much

Is there anybody out there?
Anyone at all?
Can you finally hear this deep?
I’ve been scratching through the wall

You came far to find me, down a rabbit’s hole
Now watch me smiling back while chewing on its skull

I know and won’t forget
We limped away from the wreck

Is the monkey breathing?
It’s looking kind of sick
You got a witty comment for me? Have yourself a kick

Does it make you feel good?
Are you full, and strong?
You’re gonna end up in this cage and I hope your stay is long

I know and won’t forget
We limped away from the wreck

We’ll never know what it is until we take a look inside
I’m sure we’ll find what came, before this dies
We’ll never know what it is until we take a look inside
I’m sure we’ll find what came before

I’ve had enough—I don’t need you to stick my hide
I’ve had enough—there are no more tears for me left to cry
I’ve had enough—I don’t need you to blind my eyes
I’ve had enough—there are no more tears for me left to cry

I know and won’t forget
We limped away from the wreck

We’ll never know what it is until we take a look inside
I’m sure we’ll find what came, before this dies
We’ll never know what it is until we take a look inside
I’m sure we’ll find what came before

I’ve had enough—I don’t need you to stick my hide
I’ve had enough—there are no more tears for me left to cry
I’ve had enough—I don’t need you to blind my eyes
I’ve had enough—there are no more tears for me left to cry
