Early ’90s Dylan, commenting on the current affairs…

❝ The cat’s in the well, the wolf is looking down.
The cat’s in the well, the wolf is looking down.
He got his big bushy tail dragging all over the ground.
The cat’s in the well, the gentle lady is asleep.
Cat’s in the well, the gentle lady is asleep.
She ain’t hearing a thing, the silence is a-stickin’ her deep.
The cat’s in the well and grief is showing its face
The world’s being slaughtered and it’s such a bloody disgrace.
The cat’s in the well, the horse is going bumpety bump.
The cat’s in the well, and the horse is going bumpety bump.
Back alley Sally is doing the American jump.
The cat’s in the well, and pappa is reading the news.
His hair is falling out and all of his daughters need shoes.
The cat’s in the well and the barn is full of bull
The cat’s in the well and the barn is full of bull
The night is so long and the table is oh, so full
The cat’s in the well and the servant is at the door.
The drinks are ready and the dogs are going to war.
The cat’s in the well, the leaves are starting to fall
The cat’s in the well, leaves are starting to fall
Goodnight, my love, may the lord have mercy on us all. ❞

Enjoy!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
