Rita May

Written by: Bob Dylan and Jacques Levy
Rita May, Rita May
You got your body in the way
You’re so damn nonchalant
But it’s your mind that I want
You got me huffin’ and a-puffin’
Next to you I feel like nothin’
Rita May

Rita May, Rita May
How’d you ever get that way?
When do you ever see the light?
Don’t you ever feel a fright?
You got me burnin’ and I’m turnin’
But I know I must be learnin’
Rita May

All my friends have told me
If I hang around with you
That I’ll go blind
But I know that when you hold me
That there really must be somethin’
On your mind

Rita May, Rita May
Laying in a stack of hay
Do you remember where you been?
What’s that crazy place you’re in?
I’m gonna have to go to college
’Cause you are the book of knowledge
Rita May
