on the road again lyrics – bob dylan

well, i woke up in the morning
there’s frogs inside my socks
your mama, shes a-hidin’
inside the icebox

your daddy walks in wearin’
a napoleon bonaparte mask

then you ask, why i don’t live here
honey, do you have to ask?

well, i go to pet your monkey
i get a face full of claws
i ask that who’s in the fireplace
and you tell me santa claus

the milkman comes in
he’s wearing a derby hat

then you ask, why i don’t live here
honey, how come, you have to ask me that?

well, i asked for something to eat
i’m hungry as a hog
so i get brown rice, seaweed
and a dirty hot dog

i’ve got a hole
where my stomach disappeared

then you ask, why i don’t live here
honey, i gotta think you’re really weird

your grandpa’s cane
it turns into a sword
your grandma prays to pictures
that are pasted on a board

everything inside my pockets
your uncle steals

then you ask, why i don’t live here
honey, i can’t believe that you’re for real

well, there’s fist fights in the kitchen
they’re enough to make me cry
the mailman comes in
even he’s gotta take a side

even the butler
he’s got something to prove

then you ask, why i don’t live here
honey, how come you move?
