"Sitting on a Barbed Wire Fence" as written by and Bob Dylan....
I paid fifteen million dollars, twelve hundred and seventy-two cents
I paid one thousand, two hundred twenty-seven dollars and fifty-five cents
To see my bulldog bite a rabbit
And my hound dog's just sittin' on a barbed-wire fence

Well, my temperature rises and my feet can't walk so hot
Yes, my temperature rises and my feet can't walk so hot
Well, this Arabian doctor comes in, gives me a shot
But wouldn't tell me if what it is I've got

Well, this woman I've got, she's killing me alive
Yes, this woman I've got, she's killing me alive
She's makin' me into an old man
And man, I'm not even twenty-five

Of course, you're gonna think this song is a riff
I know you're gonna think this song is just a riff
Unless you've been inside a tunnel
And fell down sixty nine, seventy feet over a barbed-wire fence

Alright!

    General CommentI'm not sure what to say about the lyrics (other then they're intriguing obviously) but the title makes me think of when people want you to take a side when you'd rather just 'sit on the fence' so to speak - or maybe it's urging people to get active rather than sit by and do nothing over issues that concern you
