Wow!!

Bob Dylan's handwritten lyrics for The Times They Are A-Changin' sold for $429,000 at Sotheby's in New York!!

Hedge-fund manager Adam Sender, an avid art collector, beat out five other bidders and bought the lyrics for almost double their original estimate price of $200,000.

The piece of paper shows crossed-out and added words written on an old beaten-up piece of paper.

"Bob Dylan's lyrics are not terribly rare," said Selby Kiffer, senior vice-president and head of books and manuscripts at Sotheby's. "He has a tremendous output. However, to have lyrics of such a seminal song is unusual."

Whoa! That's crazy to spend so much on a piece of paper!

If U had the money, would U pay almost half a million dollars for hand-written lyrics??

    This was supposed to be a PROTEST song. Talk about your selling out! Anti-hippie!
    I kid. Nothing wrong with setting the kids and grandkids up BEFORE you finish the bucket list. Git while the gittin's good.

    Bob Dylan has got to be one of the most annoying songsters ever. His voice haunts me like an ear worm.
    What kind of foolish loser would ever pay that much for his crappy shit.
    BD has been overrated forever, why should it stop now.
