Bob Dylan traveled to Washington encourage everyone
with a song that included some interesting lyrics at
the 2 minute and 13-second mark. Cognoscenti…
And the ship’s wise men
Will remind you once again
That the whole wide world is watchin’.
Oh the foes will rise
With the sleep still in their eyes
And they’ll jerk from their beds and think they’re dreamin’.
But they’ll pinch themselves and squeal
And know that it’s for real
The hour when the ship comes in.
Then they’ll raise their hands
Sayin’ “We’ll meet all your demands,”
But we’ll shout from the bow, “Your days are numbered.”
And like Pharoah’s tribe
They’ll be drownded in the tide
And like Goliath, they’ll be conquered.
