There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
Too much confusion
I can't get no relief

Businessmen they drink my wine
Then the plowmen they dig my earth
None of them along the line
Know what any of its worth

No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many among us
Who feel that life is but a joke, ha ha

But you and I we've been through all that
Yes we have, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late

All along the watchtower
Princes kept their view, oh
While all the women, all the women
All the women came and they went
Barefoot servants too

Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl, la la la
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl, yeah, la la la

All along the watchtower
Princes kept their view, oh
While all the women, all the women
All the women came and they went
Barefoot servants too

Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl, la la la
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl, yeah, yeah

All along the watchtower
Princes kept their view
While all the women, all the women
All the women came and they went
Barefoot servants too

Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl
Two riders, two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl

The money's safe
The thief is safe
The money's safe
The thief is safe
No reason to get excited!
