I Want You

Album: Blonde on Blonde (1966)
Charted: 20
  • The guilty undertaker sighs
    The lonesome organ grinder cries
    The silver saxophones say I should refuse you
    The cracked bells and washed-out horns
    Blow into my face with scorn, but it's
    Not that way, I wasn't born to lose you

    I want you
    I want you
    I want you, so bad
    Honey, I want you

    The drunken politician leaps
    Upon the street where mothers weep
    And the saviors who are fast asleep, they wait for you
    And I wait for them to interrupt
    Me drinkin' from my broken cup
    And ask me to open up the gate for you

    I want you
    I want you
    Yes I want you, so bad
    Honey, I want you

    How all my fathers, they've gone down
    True love they've been without it
    But all their daughters put me down
    'Cause I don't think about it

    Well, I return to the Queen of Spades
    And talk with my chambermaid
    She knows that I'm not afraid to look at her
    She is good to me and there's
    Nothing she doesn't see
    She knows where I'd like to be but it doesn't

    I want you
    I want you
    Yes I want you, so bad
    Honey, I want you

    Now your dancing child with his Chinese suit he
    Spoke to me, I took his flute
    No, I wasn't very cute to him, was I?
    But I did it, because he lied and
    Because he took you for a ride
    And because time was on his side and
    Because I

    Want you
    I want you
    Yes I want you, so bad
    Honey, I want you Writer/s: Bob Dylan
