Rzim My favorite line: "I decided to flip a coin, like either heads or tails would let me know if I should go back to ship or back to jail. So I hocked my sailor suit and I got a coin to flip. It came up tails, it rhymed with sails, so I made it back to the ship" Tails also rhymes with jail. Brilliant, haha. Jul 10, 2009
Matthew Perhaps the most purely humerous song of Bob's career, full of sight gags and puns. Very few songs by other artists compare. A weird masterpiece. The closest I think I've seen to this kind of bizarro narrative is John Prine's amazing "Jesus (The Missing Years)." Best line: "The last I seen of Ahab he was stuck on a whale...that was married to the deputy sheriff of the jail." Nov 25, 2005
