Bob Dylan & The Band – Clothes Line

After a while we took in the clothes,
Setelah beberapa saat kami mengambil pakaian,
Nobody said very much.
Tidak ada yang bilang sangat banyak.
Just some old wild shirts and a couple pairs of pants
Hanya beberapa kemeja liar tua dan beberapa pasang celana
Which nobody really wanted to touch.
Yang tak seorang pun benar-benar ingin disentuh.
Mama come in and picked up a book
Mama masuk dan mengambil sebuah buku
An' Papa asked her what it was.
Papa bertanya apa itu.
Someone else asked, “What do you care?”
Seseorang bertanya, “Apa peduli?”
Papa said, “Well, just because.”
Papa berkata, “Baiklah, hanya karena.”
Then they started to take back their clothes,
Kemudian mereka mulai mengambil kembali pakaian mereka,
Hang 'em on the line.
Hang mereka di telepon.
It was January the thirtieth
Saat itu tanggal tiga puluh Januari
And everybody was feelin' fine.
Dan semua orang merasa baik-baik saja.

The next day everybody got up
Keesokan harinya semua orang bangkit
Seein' if the clothes were dry.
Lihat apakah pakaian itu kering.
The dogs were barking, a neighbor passed,
Anjing-anjing itu menggonggong, seekor tetangga lewat,
Mama, of course, she said, “Hi!”
Mama, tentu saja, dia berkata, “Hai!”
“Have you heard the news?” he said, with a grin,
“Pernah dengar kabar itu?” katanya sambil menyeringai,
“The Vice-President's gone mad!”
“Wakil Presiden sudah gila!”
“Where?” “Downtown.” “When?” “Last night.”
“Dimana?” “Pusat kota.” “Kapan?” “Tadi malam.”
“Hmm, say, that's too bad!”
“Hmm, bilang, itu terlalu buruk!”
“Well, there's nothin' we can do about it,” said the neighbor,
“Nah, tidak ada yang bisa kita lakukan untuk itu,” kata tetangga,
“It's just somethin' we're gonna have to forget.”
“Hanya sesuatu yang harus kita lupakan.”
“Yes, I guess so,” said Ma,
“Ya, saya kira begitu,” kata Ma,
Then she asked me if the clothes was still wet.
Lalu dia bertanya apakah baju itu masih basah.

I reached up, touched my shirt,
Aku mengulurkan tangan, menyentuh bajuku,
And the neighbor said, “Are those clothes yours?”
Dan tetangganya berkata, “Apakah pakaian itu milikmu?”
I said, “Some of 'em, not all of 'em.”
Saya berkata, “Beberapa dari mereka, tidak semuanya.”
He said, “Ya always help out around here with the chores?”
Dia berkata, “Ya selalu membantu di sekitar sini dengan tugas-tugasnya?”
I said, “Sometime, not all the time.”
Saya berkata, “Kadang, tidak setiap saat.”
Then my neighbor, he blew his nose
Lalu tetanggaku, dia meniup hidungnya
Just as papa yelled outside,
Sama seperti papa berteriak di luar,
“Mama wants you t' come back in the house and bring them clothes.”
“Mama ingin kau kembali ke rumah dan membawa mereka pakaian.”
Well, I just do what I'm told,
Nah, saya hanya melakukan apa yang saya bilang,
So, I did it, of course.
Jadi, saya melakukannya, tentu saja.
I went back in the house and Mama met me
Aku kembali ke rumah dan Mama menemuiku
And then I shut all the doors.
Lalu aku menutup semua pintu.
