  • @atearmstoholdya as far as I know, it's just called misheard lyrics. Lots of people do it. :)
  • His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean and you’re the best thing that he’s ever seen...

She always says that this song is "Lady Elaine"...as in "Lady Elaine, lay across my big brass bed." I think this is when Dylan sounded his best. I guess that if you see him in concert sometimes he sounds very clear...many times he sounds like he mumbles...incoherrantly.
  • Would Midnight Cowboy have worked as well if they did use tis as the title song like they were going to
  • You can have your cake and eat it too
  • For you, DeeDee...
