When I'm an old lady I'm gonna be his baby I'm gonna wrap myself around him And then I'm gonna kiss him
But that's a way down the line You see for now he isn't mine.. But I don't mind waiting And the longing's not aching
'Cause I know One day he'll say, "that's my girl" The happiest words in the world Make me laugh like an idiot Not be so serious
For now when I'm around him I act like I don't care for him I even act like I don't like him Ignore him, to spite him
But only so that I won't smile at him For everyone would know I love him And that's so uncool 'Cause it's messing with all the rules
And I know One day he'll say, "that's my girl" The happiest words in the world Make me laugh like an idiot Not be so serious

It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
Bob Dylan's most popular song is "Like A Rolling Stone," which tells the story of a wealthy woman whose money and friends fall away. Dylan offers these mockingly encouraging words: "When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose."
