Quinn the Eskimo Lyrics

Lyrics:

(Dylan)
Copyright © 1968 by Dwarf Music; renewed 1996 by Dwarf Music

Evírybodyís building the big ships and the boats
Some are building monuments
Others, jotting down notes
Evírybodyís in despair
Evíry girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Evírybodyís gonna jump for joy
Come all without, come all within
Youíll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

I like to do just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet
But guarding fumes and making haste
It ainít my cup of meat
Evírybodyís íneath the trees
Feeding pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
All the pigeons gonna run to him
Come all without, come all within
Youíll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

A catís meow and a cowís moo, I can recite íem all
Just tell me where it hurts yuh, honey
And Iíll tell you who to call
Nobody can get no sleep
Thereís someone on evíryoneís toes
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Evírybodyís gonna wanna doze
Come all without, come all within
Youíll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
