Something, by Bob Dylan (live version).

You’re asking me will my love grow
I don’t know. I don’t know.

Trash Tongue Talker, by Jack White (live 2013).

Two monkeys jumping on the bed
And one fell off and hit his head on the ground
The other monkey called the doctor
Said another body’s dead on the ground

Isis, by Bob Dylan (live 1975).

She was there in the meadow where the creek used to rise.
Blinded by sleep and in need of a bed,
I came in from the East with the sun in my eyes.
I cursed her one time then I rode on ahead.

She said, "Where ya been?" I said, "No place special."
She said, "You look different." I said, "Well, I guess."
She said, "You been gone." I said, "That's only natural." She said,
"You gonna stay?" I said, "If you want me to, yeah!"

Weep themselves to sleep, by Jack White.

Nobody knows just how it goes
To show that the villain will play the victim
The tame can’t shake the reins of
Demonizing brains that mean to kill them
