Once upon a time you dressed so fine threw the bums a dime in your prime didn't you
People'd call say you're bound to fall you thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about everybody that was hanging out
Now you don't talk so loud now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal
How does it feel how does it feel with no directions home
Like a complete unknown like a rolling stone

Princess on the steeple all the pretty people drinkin' thinkin' they got it made
Exchanging all kinds of precious gifts
You'd better lift your diamond ring you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused at Napoleon in rags and the language he used
Pull to him now he calls you you can't refuse
When you got nothin' you got nothin' to lose
You're invisible now you got no secrets to conceal
How does it feel how does it feel to be without a home
To be on your own like a complete unknown like a rolling stone just like a rolling stone
