Manfred Mann - Mighty Quinn
Tekst en muziek: Bob Dylan
(1968)






Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn



Everybody’s building ships and boats
Some are building monuments, others are jotting down notes
Everybody’s in despair, every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody’s gonna jump for joy



Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn



I like to go just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet
But jumping queues and makin’ haste, just ain’t my cup of meat
Everyone’s beneath the trees, feedin’ pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
All the pigeons gonna run to him



Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn



Let me do what I wanna do, I can’t decide them all
Just tell me where to put them and I’ll tell you who to call
Nobody can get no sleep, there’s someone on everyone’s toes
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody’s gonna wanna doze



Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
Come all without
Come all within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
