Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan ( /ˈdɪlən/; born Robert Allen Zimmerman; May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, author, poet and artist. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when he was an informal chronicler and a seemingly reluctant figurehead of social unrest. A number of Dylan's early songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements.

Well, everybody's building the big ships and the boats
Some are building monuments
Others jotting down notes
Ev'rybody's in despair
Every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Ev'rybody's gonna jump for joy
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

You know, I like to do just like the rest
You know, I like my sugar sweet
But jumping queues and making haste
You know, it ain't my cup of meat
Everybody's out there
Feeding pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
The pigeons gonna run to him
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

A cat's meow and a cow's moo
You know, I can recite them all
Tell me where it hurts you, honey
And I'll tell you who to call
Nobody can get any sleep
You know there's someone on everybody's toes
When Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Ev'rybody's gonna wanna doze
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
