"Open the Door, Homer" as written by and Bob Dylan....
Now, there's a certain thing
That I learned from Jim
That he'd always make sure I'd understand
And that is that there's a certain way
We all must swim
If we expect to live off
Of the fat of the land
Open the door, Richard
I've heard it said before
Open the door, Richard
Heard it said before
But I ain't gonna hear it said no more

Now, there's a certain thing
That I learned from my friend, mouse
That fella who never blushes
And that is that one must always
Flush out his house
If he don't expect to be housing flushes

Open the door, Richard
I've heard it said before
Open the door, Richard
I've heard it said before
But I ain't gonna hear it said no more

Take care of all your memories, said Mick
For you cannot relive them
And remember when you're out there
Tryin' to heal the sick
That you must always first forgive them
Open the door, Richard
I've heard it said before
Open the door, homer
I've heard it said before
But I ain't gonna hear it said no more

    General CommentFascinating. There is a whole bunch of pages and info available if one googles "Open The Door, Richard" ( google.com/ ), none of which has anything to do with Bob Dylan! The fascinating irony about this, is that, although Dylan's official, published song and lyrics go under the title "Open The Door, Homer," he sings 'Richard' on the recording (BASEMENT TAPES). Making it more weird, is that, because of the way he pronounces 'Richard," it sounded to me, for years before I saw the lyrics, exactly like "…open the door, Rachel!" So Dylanesque a situation!!!~E
