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??
