The New Dylan

Oh you are such lucky people
Watching me upon the stage
Donít you know Iím the next big thing?
Donít you know Iím all the rage?

The papers write at length about me
My pictureís everywhere you look
Have you bought my latest record?
Have you bought my lyric book?

And if I strum my acoustic guitar
And blow in my harmonica
Will you believe me when I say
Iím the new Dylan
The new Dylan today?

Iíve got my finger on the pulse
My genius is beyond doubt
You might get to see me on my next tour
Though most of the dates have already sold out

Tomorrow Iím doing Top Of The Pops
And then the Russell Harty show
Then Iím flying back to Beverley Hills
Iím living out there now, you know

I voted Tory at the last election
Coz I thought Maggie deserved the chance
To reduce my crippling taxes
And put more money in my bank

And if I strum my acoustic guitar
And blow in my harmonica
Will you believe me when I say
Iím the new Dylan
The new Dylan today?

Iíll sing about life out on the street
And how youíve got to pay your dues
Iíll tell you about the time I was starving
The holes in my pockets and the holes in my shoes

Of course, itís all dreamed up by ad men
But thereís some fools whoíll always fall
And if you actually buy this crap
Then youíre the biggest fool of all

But if I strum my acoustic guitar
And blow in my harmonica
Will you believe me when I say
Iím the new Dylan
The new Dylan today?
