Bob Dylan

Ringtones Ringtones: Send Angelina Ringtones to your Cell

Well, it's always been my nature

To take chances

My right hand drawing back

While my left hand advances

Where the current is strong

And the monkey dances

To the tune

Of a concertina

Blood dryin' in my yellow hair

As I go from shore to shore

I know what it is

That has drawn me to your door

But whatever could it be

Makes you think

You've seen me before


Oh, Angelina

Oh, Angelina

His eyes were two slits

Makin' a snake proud

With a face that any painter would paint

As he walked through the crowd

Worshiping a God

With the body of a woman

Well endowed

And the head of a hyena

Do I need your permission

To turn the other cheek?

If you can read my mind

Why must I speak?

No, I have heard nothing

About the man

That you seek


Oh, Angelina

Oh, Angelina

In the valley of the giants

Where the stars and stripes explode

The peaches they were sweet

And the milk and honey flowed

I was only following instructions

When the judge

Sent me down the road

With your subpoena

When you cease to exist

Then who will you blame?

I've tried my best to love you

But I cannot play this game

Your best friend

And my worst enemy

Is one and the same


Oh, Angelina

Oh, Angelina

There's a black Mercedes

Rollin' through the combat zone

Your servants are half dead

You're down to the bone

Tell me, tall man

Where would you like

To be overthrown

In Jerusalem or Argentina?

She was stolen from her mother

When she was three days old

Now her vengeance has been satisfied

And her possessions have been sold

He's surrounded by God's angels

And she's wearin' a blindfold

But so are you


Oh, Angelina

Oh, Angelina

I see pieces of men marching

Trying to take Heaven by force

I can see the unknown rider

I can see the pale white horse

In God's truth name

Tell me what you want

And you'll have it of course

Just step into the arena

Beat a path of retreat

Up them spiral staircases

Pass the tree of smoke

Pass the angel with four faces

Begging God for mercy

And weepin'

In unholy places


Oh, Angelina

Oh, Angelina

Oh, Angelina

Oh, oh, Angelina

Oh, oh, Angelina
