For her 1991 birthday Julie wanted a reply to a Dylan song.  Nothing but.
 
 
What was it you wanted? 
Tell me again so I'll know. 
What's happening in there? 
What's going on in your show? 
What was it you wanted? 
Could you say it again? 
I'll be back in a minute. 
You can get it together by then. 

What was it you wanted? 
You can tell me, I'm  back. 
We can start it all over, 
Get it back on the track. 
You've got my attention. 
Now go ahead, speak. 
What was it you wanted 
When you were kissing my cheek? 

Was there somebody looking 
When you gave me that kiss, 
Someone there in the shadows, 
Someone that I might have missed? 
Is there something you needed, 
Something I don't understand? 
What was it you wanted? 
Do I have it here in my hand? 

Whatever you wanted 
Slipped out of my mind. 
Would you remind me again, 
If you'd be so kind? 
Has the record been breaking? 
Did the needle just skip? 
Is there somebody waiting? 
Was there a slip of the lip? 

What was it you wanted? 
I ain't keeping score. 
Are you the same person 
That was here before? 
Is it something important? 
Maybe not. 
What was it you wanted? 
Tell me again.  I forgot. 

Whatever you wanted, 
What could it be? 
Did somebody tell you 
That you could get it from me? 
Is it something that comes natural? 
Is it easy to say? 
Why do you want it? 
Who are you, anyway? 

Is the scenery changing? 
Am I getting it wrong? 
Is the whole thing going backwards? 
Are they playing our song? 
Where were you when it started? 
Do you want it for free? 
What was it you wanted? 
Are you talking to me?

What was it I wanted? 
Are you sure you don't know? 
The fiesta's begun. 
Let's get on with the show. 
What was it I wanted? 
I can say it again. 
Are you ready for this? 
Here's some paper, a pen. 

What was it I wanted? 
Relax, you'll be fine. 
We can sort this out fast, 
Move it on down the line. 
It's later than late. 
Must've been quite a haul, 
But you knew that I'd get here 
In time for last call. 

It's too bad about last time 
But was all for the best. 
I wanted to reach you 
And who would've guessed 
After all, that I needed 
More time out of sight? 
What was it I wanted? 
You've got it.  That's right. 

What I everso wanted 
And never could get, 
I accepted its lack: 
"So it can't happen yet." 
But the disc is defective. 
The laser mistracks. 
Here we go--not again: 
Split ahead of the axe. 

What was it I wanted? 
What do I want now? 
Do you want to know why? 
Do you want to know how? 
Could this be all-important? 
Maybe so. 
What was it I wanted? 
Overnight you can know. 

Whatever I wanted 
Can still come to be. 
I'm bursting with news 
That I'll tell you for free. 
It can be second nature 
Remarkably soon. 
I can answer the questions. 
I can slip you the tune. 

Yes, the landscape's a new one 
But I've been here before. 
I can show you around. 
There are vistas in store. 
Now it's time we got started. 
It's been worth it.  You'll see. 
What is it I've wanted? 
Save the last dance for me.
