The Lyrics

Yes, I wrote a parody of this song, but of the Dylan version. This one is based on the Hendrix version
I was walking to the bus stop when a woman came to me
She tells me "I have something that you want to see."
She hands a copy to me. I take a brief view.
The text was way too preachy, so I said no thank you.

"No reason to treat me rudely." The dowdy woman said.
Because I know of a being who keeps us out of the red.
He gives us spiritual peace, so please give us a try
And let us know where you're living, so we will all come by.

I don't want the Watchtower. Threw it in the trash.
I saw the bus was coming, so I made a mad dash

Meanwhile in a Buick, the woman drove past.
The police were approaching, so she was driving fast
