You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

Ni såg väl På Spåret i fredags? Isåfall kanske ni också har haft The Mighty Quinn på hjärnan sedan dess. Då kan ni få lyssna på den lite till här: 
 


På inspelningen från 1967 är det Klaus Voormann, som var kompis med Beatles i Hamburg och som formgav omslaget till Revolver som spelar flöjtintrot. Bra sak att veta om man ska gå på nördquiz, till exempel.
 
Texten är ganska härlig också.
 

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 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 west, I like my sugar sweet
But jumping queues and making haste
Just ain't my cup of meat
Everyone's beneath 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
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 at all
Just tell me where to put it
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 want to 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

--Bob Dylan
