did'ya ever wonder
wonder about 
them
the they
behind
the eyes and teeth
all slick soft 
froggy squirming 
underneath
did'ya ever wonder, now
wonder about 
them

did'ya ever 
follow
follow them 
home
down the alley
everywhere they roam
combing them out
with a fine tooth comb
did'ya ever follow them
all the way home

did'ya ever feel
just a little scared
sinister shadows
shamble through 
sight lines
what the devil's 
scratching
down your spine
now, did'ya ever feel
just a little scared

dont'cha ever wonder
dont'cha ever wonder
dont'cha ever wonder
dont'cha ever wonder
dont'cha ever wonder
all the way home

  9. I try not to read the comments before I type my own but as I was scrolling down I saw the words song somewhere. All I could think about was Dylan singing this. Now to go back and read it in my best Dylan voice that will be a treat. Might inspire a second comment.
