Lyrics [pdf] [txt] [cho]

They're selling postcards of the hanging,
The Titanic sails at dawn,
And everybody is wondering
How long can this go on?
Must be ten minutes he's been droning
Is that spaghetti on his sleeve?
And someone says, ``It's incomprehensible;
I'd better leave.''
The fans are getting restless;
They really need to know
How can we stop Savitzky from singing
``Desolation Row''?

And it's Oh! No! A thousand times no!
Even though it's my blood you'll be spillin'.
I shouldn't sing songs more than ten verses long,
But I just can't stop singing Bob Dylan.
