Bob Dylan - Talkin' World War lll Blues текст песни

Some time ago a crazy dream came to me

I dreamt I was walkin' into World War Three

I went to the doctor the very next day

To see what kinda words he could say

He said it was a bad dream

I wouldn't worry 'bout it none, though

They're dreams and they're only in your head.

I said, Hold it, Doc, a World War passed through my brain.

He said, Nurse, get your pad, this boy's insane.

He grabbed my arm, I said Ouch.

As I landed on the psychiatric couch

He said, Tell me about it.

Well, the whole thing started at 3 o'clock fast

It was all over by quarter past

I was down in the sewer with some little lover

When I peeked out from a manhole cover

Wondering who turned the lights on.

Well, I got up and walked around

And up and down the lonesome town

I stood a-wondering which way to go

I lit a cigarette on a parking meter

And walked on down the road

It was a normal day.

Well, I rung the fallout shelter bell

And leaned my head and I gave a yell

Give me a string bean I'm a hungry man

A shortgun fired and away I ran

I don't blame them too much though

They didn't know me.

Down at the corner by a hot-dog stand

I seen a man I said Howdy friend,

I guess there's just us two

He screamed a bit and away he flew

Thought it was a Communist.

Well, I spied me a girl and before she could leave

Let's go and play Adam and Eve

I took her by the hand and my heart it was thumpin'

When she said, Hey man, you crazy or sumpin'

You see what happened last time they started.

Well, I seen a Cadillac window uptown

And there was nobody aroun'

I got into the driver's seat

And I drove down to 42nd Street

In my Cadillac

Good car to drive after a war.

Well, I remember seein' some ad

So I turned on my Conelrad

But I didn't pay my Con Ed bill

So the radio didn't work so well

Turned on my record player

It was Rock-A-Day Johnny singin'

Tell Your Ma, Tell Your Pa

Our Loves Are Gonna Grow Ooh-wah, Ooh-wah


I was feelin' kinda lonesome and blue

I needed somebody to talk to

So I called up the operator of time

Just to hear a voice of some kind

When you hear the beep

It will be three o'clock

She said that for over an hour

And I hung up.

Well the doctor interrupted me just about then

Sayin' Hey I've been havin' the same old dreams

But mine was a little different you see

I dreamt that the only person left after the war was me

I didn't see you around.

Well, now time passed and now it seems

Everybody's having them dreams

Everybody sees themselves walkin' around with no one else

Half of the people can be part right all of the time

Some of the people can be all right part of the time

But all of the people can't be all right all of the time

I think Abraham Lincoln said that

I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours

I said that.

Corrina, Corrina

Corrina, Corrina

Gal, where you been so long ?

Corrina, Corrina

Gal where you been so long ?

I been worr'in' about you, baby

Baby, please come home.

I got a bird that whistles

I got a bird that sings

I got a bird that whistles

I got a bird that sings

But I ain't a-got Corrina

Life don't mean a thing.

Corrina, Corrina

Gal, you're on my mind

Corrina, Corrina

Gal, you're on my mind

I'm a-thinkin' about you, baby

I just can't keep from crying.
