The lyrics of this song shocked me, big time! I first heard this cover performed by The Byrds, but found out later it was written by Bob Dylan.

I ain’t lookin’ to compete with you
Beat or cheat or mistreat you
Simplify you, classify you
Deny, defy or crucify you
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you

No, and I ain’t lookin’ to fight with you
Frighten you or tighten you
Drag you down or drain you down
Chain you down or bring you down
All I really want to do
Is, baby, be friends with you

“All I Really Want To Do”Bob Dylan

I much prefer this The Byrds’ cover. Check it out! I’m loving this fine band — The Byrds.
