The clip Sing About Your Own Time from I'm Not There. (2007) The sweet, pretty things are in bed now, of course The city fathers, they're trying to endorse The reincarnation of Paul Revere's horse But the town has no need to be nervous The hysterical bride in the penny arcade Screaming, she moans, "I've just been made" Then sends out for the doctor who pulls down the shade Says, "My advice is to not let the boys in" Where Ma Raney and Beethoven once unwrapped their bed roll Tuba players now rehearse around the flagpole And the national bank for a profit Sells road maps for the soul To the old folks home and the college Mama's in the factory She ain't got no shoes Daddy's in the alley He's lookin' for food I'm in the kitchen With the tombstone blues Hey, hey, yeah Whoo!

I figured they got plenty of mouths to feed as it is. Not that I care a fig about material things, you know, except for maybe a decent car. See, us thumb-slummers and box-jumpers, we get a little peckish when it comes to cars, you know? That boy sound just like Doughboy Hawkins,
