    Lyrics »

"There must be some way out of here,"
Said the joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion, yeah
I can't get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line
Know what any of it is worth."

"No reason to get excited,"
The thief, he kindly spoke
"There are many here among us now
Who feel that life is but a joke.
But you and I, we've been through that
And this is not our fate, no
So let us not talk falsely now
Cause the hour is getting late."

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too.
Outside in the distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl.
All along the watchtower, all along the watchtower,
All along the watchtower, all along the watchtower,
All along the watchtower,
Yeah.....
