"BALLAD OF A THIN MAN" LYRICS



BALLAD OF A THIN MAN

Words and Music by Bob Dylan
1965 Warner Bros. Inc
Renewed 1993 Special Rider Music

You walk into the room
With your pencil in your hand
You see somebody naked
And you say, "Who is that man?"
You try so hard
But you don't understand
Just what you'll say
When you get home

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

You raise up your head
And you ask, "Is this where it is?"
And somebody points to you and says
"It's his"
And you say, "What's mine?"
And somebody else says, "Where what is?"
And you say, "Oh my God
Am I here all alone?"

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

You hand in your ticket
And you go watch the geek
Who immediately walks up to you
When he hears you speak
And says, "How does it feel
To be such a freak?"
And you say, "Impossible"
As he hands you a bone

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

You have many contacts
Among the lumberjacks
To get you facts
When someone attacks your imagination
But nobody has any respect
Anyway they already expect you
To just give a check
To tax-deductible charity organizations

You've been with the professors
And they've all liked your looks
With great lawyers you have
Discussed lepers and crooks
You've been through all of
F. Scott Fitzgerald's books
You're very well read
It's well known

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

Well, the sword swallower, he comes up to you
And then he kneels
He crosses himself
And then he clicks his high heels
And without further notice
He asks you how it feels
And he says, "Here is your throat back
Thanks for the loan"

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

Now you see this one-eyed midget
Shouting the word "NOW"
And you say, "For what reason?"
And he says, "How?"
And you say, "What does this mean?"
And he screams back, "You're a cow
Give me some milk
Or else go home"

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

Well, you walk into the room
Like a camel and then you frown
You put your eyes in your pocket
And your nose on the ground
There ought to be a law
Against you comin' around
You should be made
To wear earphones

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

Commission launches Comenius Regio Partnerships

New opportunities for regional cooperation in school education
On November 3 the European Commission launched Comenius Regio, a new
action under the Lifelong Learning Programme. With an annual budget of EUR
16 million, Comenius Regio Partnerships will support cooperation between
local and regional authorities, schools and other learning organisations across
Europe.

Comenius Regio Partnerships fund regional cooperation in school education,
and promote the exchange of experience and good practice between regions
and municipalities in Europe. They aim to help regional or local authorities
with responsibility in school education to improve educational opportunities
for school–age children. Within these bilateral cooperation projects the two
participating regions are free to choose any topic of relevance and interest to
them. For example, projects could work on school management issues, better
integration of pupils with migration backgrounds, entrepreneurship education
or reducing early school leaving.

Schools and other relevant partners within the region or municipality,
such as a youth club, a library or museum, must be integrated in project
activities. Comenius Regio Partnerships can contain a wide range of actions
like exchanges of school education staff, joint teacher training activities, peer
learning or study visits. They can also launch a variety of other activities in the
regions involved, for instance surveys, trials of new educational approaches or
awareness-raising campaigns.

The deadline for applications for grants is 20 February 2009. Applications must
be made by the local or regional school authorities. Successful applicants will
be selected by summer 2009, and the actions can start from August 2009. The
grants will support partnerships for two years. The funding will contribute to
the costs of mobility between the partner regions and of the project activities.
The Commission expects to fund around 500 regions through the Comenius
Regio action. It is managed by the Comenius National Agencies in each country
taking part in the Lifelong Learning Programme.
