  The Basement Tapes - july 1967, #1  

Everybody's building
Big ships an' boats
Some are building monuments
Others are jotting notes
Everybody's in despair
Every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna jump for joy.

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn.

Now i like to go just like the rest
I like my sugar sweet
But guarding fumes an' making haste
It ain't my cup of meat
Everybody's just standin' 'round neath the trees
Feeding pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Them pigeons are gonna go to him.

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn.

A lamb ........? an' .........? do
I can't recite them all
Just tell me where it hurts
An' i'll tell you who to call
Now nobody can't get any sleep
There's someone on everybody's toes
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna doze.

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn.  up

  Woodside Bay, Isle Of Wight Festival of Music - 31.aug.1969  

Well everybody's buildin'
Ships an' boats
Some are buildin' monuments
Others jottin' notes
Everybody's in despair
Every girl an' boy
But when Quinn the eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna jump for joy.

Oh, come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothin' like the mighty Quinn.
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothin' like the mighty Quinn.

You know i like to do just like the rest
You know I like my sugar sweet
But guardin' fumes an' makin' haste
You know, it ain't my cup of meat
Everybody's neath the trees
Feedin' pigeons under a limb
But when Quinn the eskimo gets here
The pigeons gonna run to him.

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothin' like the mighty Quinn.
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothin' like the mighty Quinn.

A cat's meow an' a cow's moo
I can't recite them all
Tell me where it hurts, honey
An' i'll tell you who to call
Nobody can get any sleep
There's someone on everybody's toes
Quinn the eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna wanna doze.

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothin' like the mighty Quinn.
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothin' like the mighty Quinn.  up
