The Jerk


The jerk asked Cher about the Middle East

and she said I'm Cher

You don't want to know what I think

about the Middle East


So the jerk went on to Robbie Robertson

and asked him about The Weight

and Robbie said man have you

ever seen a motorcycle crash?


Then he took off his Jerk mask

and the reporter asked Bob Dylan

how it felt to be him

how it felt all these years later


And Dylan looked at the fool 

on the hill and said

no you tell me how it felt

and he put on the Jerk mask
