Traveling Wilburys – Dirty World

It’s time for a Wilburys weekend…so without further ado… here we go!

Here’s to:

“Nelson Wilbury” – George Harrison, “Otis Wilbury” – Jeff Lynne, “Lefty Wilbury” – Roy Orbison, “Charlie T. Wilbury, Jr.” – Tom Petty and “Lucky Wilbury” – Bob Dylan

When I hear Bob Dylan sing “You don’t need no wax job, you’re smooth enough for me, 
If you need you oil changed I’ll do it for you free, Oh baby, the pleasure would be all mine
If you let me drive your pickup truck and park it where the sun don’t shine.” 

It grabs my attention really quick. This is Bob Dylan who once sang Masters of War, Tangled Up In Blue, Times Are A Changing… and he is sounding like he is having a great time.

This song next to Tweeter and the Monkey Man was my favorite on the first Wilbury album Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 which peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 in 1989. Rolling Stone named this album in the top 100 albums of the 1980s.

 

Dirty World

He loves your sexy body, he loves your dirty mind
He loves when you hold him, grab him from behind
Oh baby, you’re such a pretty thing
I can’t wait to introduce you to the other members of my gang

You don’t need no wax job, you’re smooth enough for me
If you need you oil changed I’ll do it for you free
Oh baby, the pleasure would be all mine
If you let me drive your pickup truck and park it where the sun don’t shine

Every time he touches you his hair stands up on end
His legs begin to quiver and his mind begins to bend
Oh baby, you’re such a tasty treat
But I’m under doctor’s orders, I’m afraid to overeat

He loves your sense of humor, your disposition too
There’s absolutely nothing that he don’t love about you
Oh baby, I’m on my hands and knees
Life would be so simple if I only had you to please

Oh baby, turn around and say goodbye
You go to the airport now and I’m going home to cry
He loves your…
