  The Basement Tapes - may/october 1967, #1  

Too much of nothing
Can make a man ill at ease
One man's temper rises
Where another man's temper might freeze.
Now it's a day of confessions
We cannot mock a soul
Oh, when there's too much of nothing
No one has control.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Give them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion.

When there's too much of nothing
Can cause a man to weep
He can walk the streets like most an' boast
But he'd like to keep.
But it's all been done before
It's all been written in the book
And when there's too much of nothing
Nobody should look.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Give them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion.

Now too much of nothing
Can make a man a liar
It can cause some man to sleep on nails
It can cause others to eat fire.
Everybody's doin' somethin'
I've heard it in a dream
But when there's too much of nothing
It just makes a fellow mean.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion.  up

  The Basement Tapes - may/october 1967, #2  

Too much of nothing
Can make a man feel ill at ease
One man's temper might rise
Where the other man's temper might freeze.
In the day of long confessions
We cannot mock a soul
Oh, when there's too much of nothing
No one has control.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion.

Too much of nothing
Can make a man abuse a king
He can walk the streets an' boast like most
But he won't know a thing.
Now it's all been done before
It's all been written in the book
But when there's too much of nothing
Nobody should look.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion.

Too much of nothing
Can turn a man into a liar
It can cause some man to sleep on nails
An' another man to eat fire.
Everybody's doin' somethin'
I heard it in a dream
But when there's too much of nothing
It just makes a fellow mean.

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion.  up
