Bob Dylan-'Blowin' In The Wind'

******

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take 'til he knows
That too many people have died?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

NOT Bob Dylan--'No Cable T. V.'

How much shit is a man supposed to take
before he can say he's had it up to here?
If you can't see, head's in the sand
you're being fed a line, as well as fear
Yes, and how many shots to your exposed groin,
before the specter of pain gets too near?

The answer my friend, no cable T. V.
The answer's no cable T. V.

And how many times can they treat us as dumb
too dumb to understand much?
Reduce the complex to the allotted time,
but it's hard to throw away that crutch
'Right back after this break'
With reality, its easy losing touch

The answer my friend, is no cable T. V.
The answer's no cable T. V.

and how many times must disaster on the tube,
be hammered into our brain?
Over and over in a mind-numbing loop
before people give in to insane?
Until people realize that the news ain't the news,
it's there just to entertain?

The answer my friend's, no cable T. V.
The answer's no cable T. V.
