Farewell Angelina

Farewell Angelina
(Bob Dylan)

Farewell Angelina the bells off the crown
Are being stolen by bandits, I must follow the sound
The triangle jingles and the trumpets play slow
Farewell Angelina, the sky's on fire, and I must go

There's no need for anger, there's no need for blame
There's nothing to prove, everything still the same
Just the table standing empty by the edge of the sea
Means farewell Angelina, the sky is falling, and I must leave

The jack and the queen had forsaken the courtyard
Fifty two gypsies now file passed the guards
In the space where the deuce and the ace runs ran wild
Farewell Angelina, the sky is falling, I'll see you in a while

See the roadside pirates sit cursing the sun
Shooting tin can with a sawed-off shot gun
And the neighbours they clap and they cheer with each blast
But farewell Angelina, the sky's changing colour, and I must leave fast

King-Kong lead louds on the roof top they dance
Valentino type tangos while they make upman's hands
Shut the eyes of the dead not to embarass anyone
But farewell Angelina, the sky's embarassed, and I must be gone

The machine guns are roaring and the puppet she wracks (rocks?)
And fling nails time bombs to the hands of the clocks
Call me any name you like I will never deny it
But farewell Angelina, the sky's erupting, I must go where it's quiet
