“Just like a woman” (Bob Dylan)

Bob Dylan

Nobody feels any pain

Tonight as I stand inside the rain

Ev’rybody knows

That Baby’s got new clothes

But lately I see her ribbons and her bows

Have fallen from her curls

She takes just like a woman, yes, she does

She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does

And she aches just like a woman

But she breaks just like a little girl

Queen Mary

She’s my friend

Yes, I believe I’ll go see her again

Nobody has to guess

That Baby can’t be blessed

Till she sees finally that she’s like all the rest

With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls

She takes just like a woman, yes

She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does

And she aches just like a woman

But she breaks just like a little girl

It was raining from the first

And I was dying there of thirst

So I came in here

And your long-time curse hurts

But what’s worse

Is this pain in here

I can’t stay in here

Ain’t it clear that

I just can’t fit

Yes, I believe it’s time for us to quit

But when we meet again

Introduced as friends

Please don’t let on that you knew me when

I was hungry and it was your world

Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do

You make love just like a woman, yes, you do

Then you ache just like a woman

But you break just like a little girl
