I dream Bob Dylan was a friend of mine...

He was the owner of the house
In which together we all lived,
He slept between me and my wife in bed,
Oh, the roof leaked in the kitchen,
I never mentioned my collection of his albums,
I never bothered him with intrusive questions...

I dream Bob Dylan was a friend of mine...

He got a warm sense of humor,
He was outgoing like my wife,
We'd hang out late into the night,
Smoking joints and drinking wine,
We'd go thrift store shopping
For vintage electronics,
Race remote cars in toy departments,
We'd never talk about playing music...

I dream Bob Dylan was a friend of mine...

    General CommentJust so we know that Bob Dylan could be a great friend, not only an idol.
    Most people WOULD speak to him about music and his genius etc, not knowing about his love for simple joys like vintage electronics and children remote cars :)
    Most people would think his house should be something really impressive - but you see, 'the roof leaked in the kitchen'...
    And a great line about his sleeping place, 'between me and my wife in bed'. So much trust and honour in that, nobody short of Bob Dylan would be worth it.
