"Uncle Bob's Midnight Blues" as written by and Randy Newman....
Goin' down to the corner
Gonna have myself a drink
Goin' down to the corner
Gonna have myself a drink

'Cause that shit that we been usin'
Sure confuse my thinking
Gonna send out to the drugstore
Buy myself a goat

Tie him up in my front yard
For all my so-called friends to see
Ain't nobody gonna look in window and laugh at me
I been up so long

That it looks like down to me
Please don't talk about to me when I'm gone
Baby, are you against me too?
Had a great idea the other night

Come-A-Ti-Yi-Yippie, baby
Look out
When the blue of the night meets the gold of the day

We love you
We love you
We love you

    General CommentNewman always does remarkably well within the 12-bar blues format. "I been up so long/That it looks like down to me" is a great couple lines.

    General CommentIt sounds like he's poking fun at Bob Dylan's typical lyric-writing, by writing it all a bit senselessly. I mean, I love Dylan, but that's the impression I get from this song.
