The Lyrics

Bob Dylan's been awarded an honorary doctorate in music by St Andrews University in Scotland, 34 years after accepting his first one from Princeton... so he truly is "Doctor Robert"
Bob, my friend, can now be called Doctor Robert
He's received an honorary doctorate, Doctor Robert
Doctor Robert, 'cause we all know Dylan songs
When he sings, we sing along
Though we get the words all wrong, Doctor Robert

If you ask a question of him, Doctor Robert
The answer's blowing in the wind, Doctor Robert
Doctor Robert, He writes such short songs, you know
Just a blink and then they go
E.g. Desolation Row... Doctor Robert

Knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knock, repeated... Doctor Robert

Hey man with that tambourine, Doctor Robert
Won't you play a song for me Doctor Robert
Doctor Robert, See him step up to the mike
Though his songs may sound alike
Still, you ain't seen nothing like Doctor Robert

Knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door
Knock, knock, knock ad nauseam ... Doctor Robert
