If the Republican voters ever wake up, this should be their theme song:
They are already complete unknowns; just too ignorant to realize it...yet. Props to Bob Dylan.

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you ?
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone ?

You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but know you realize
He's not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And say do you want to make a deal?

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone ?
You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
When they all come down and did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He really wasn't where it's at
After he took from you everything he could steal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone ?

Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you'd better take your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone ?

1. Be a good one to Sing when Romney goes down...Here's You Tube of the Original Dylan..

I can still remember where I was when I first heard it...

We have been hoping and waiting for "them" to realize their corruption and lack of identity with the rest of their "fellow Americans" was going to have some repercussions. The "them" sadly belongs to both parties sometimes...but, for awhile now the Repugs really have to be the ones who deserve this song the most. :-( A Good Re-listen! Thanks for the lyrics. Good to hear once again.

Bob Dylan - Like A Rolling Stone (ORIGINAL)

2. Love listening to Bob Dylan...

My all time favorite of his is Positively 4th Street.

Not any poets making music these days. :(

On edit: It's been 50 years since he put out his first album. Can't figure out where all the years went.
