BOB DYLAN LYRIC WATCH – Positively 4th Street

This being of course, Sir Bob of Dylan’s most scabrous attack on those dim-witted, unpleasant and dull fools who call themselves his fans. Now some might say biting the hand that feeds you is not the smartest of moves, but then I think we are quickly coming to the opinion that – despite what the UK’s finest intellectual discussion fora the Daily Mirror says – Bob is a bit on the dim side. Anyhow, I rather like the following lyric.

When you know as well as me
You’d rather see me paralysed
Why don’t you just come out once
And scream it

Okay. Infact I’ll go one better than that Bob – I will write it in capital letters in bold on a website. (I screamed it on a busy thoroughfare in London yesterday and got an interesting look from a youngish policeman who only let me go when I explained that I was only fulfilling Dylan’s wishes, had imbibed a number of double G&T’s and his Mum would probably want him home for tea soon as it was well past eight in the evening).Ahem:


There. Does that make you feel better, Mr Paranoid Haemorrhoid?
