Truck-Drivers, Carpenters, Verlaine and Ring-Dancing do not count, in my opinion.
Even my suggestion *pig-circus*, should be there, then.
Hypens, Saxon Genitives and different spelling don't make different words.

On the contrary, Zanzinger has never been used before or after.
We have a winner.
(assuming I'm entitled to say that!)

Not lyrics, but titles.

You won't find many songs with these words in the title -

Absolutely
Obviously
Approximately
Temporary
Revisited
Incident
Subterranean
Desolation
Shall

zanzinger has a great sound
but
does it seem lame to settle for a name?
(of course, i think you are entitled to say
whatever you like)

The title of this thread is 'TERMS only Dylan has used'.

Dictionary definition of TERM=Word or phrase used to describe a thing or express a concept.

Zanzinger is a family name. Sorry, it's not a term. So not a winner.

I regard a family name as a term and therefore within the context of the topic.

Well, Emu, I disagree with you. But as you were nominated as judge I will defer to you.

It's a disappointing word as a winner though. A family name. :( . A seriously boring word in the context of all the rich descriptive words used by Dylan in his lyrics.

If family names do count, why not names of places?
I don't think there are many songs out there mentioning Wabasha, Ashtabula or Savanna-la-Mar.

Maybe you are right and we should not consider family or place names.

May have found a winner! According to lyrics.com, Where Are You Tonight is the only song to use the word undrape. Does this count? I notice that my spellcheck when I typed it indicates that it's not a word, but it is in the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Official ruling by Judge Emu please!

I doubt you will find any single word in his lyrics that only he has used.



My modest collection of spring 1991 performances begs to differ.

"Tale Of The Jelly Faced Man" by Joe Devita from the album "Song Collection 2012".


This indicates the problem with this fun game. The problem is we need to define the scope of this search for a unique word. The scope is just too wide at the moment.

I propose that;

1/ As the OP said THIS game is about a unique WORD. The PHRASE search can be another search. How intesting! Bob is a never-endind source of trivial games.

2/ The word may contain a punctuation. (So that I can win :wink:)

3/ The word must have FIRST been used by Bob Dylan and no other previous lyric writer. There are so many subsequent song writers who have copied Bob, we can't include them. (Also so I can win).

Whad about dat?

We also need a Judge. To adjudicate and settle Word game disputes.


So please tell me, has 'undraped' been dismissed? We do have to have some rules, so we can find a winner.

If undraped was not FIRST used by Dylan, then we are back to 'Jelly-faced'. Come on everybody, Jelly-faced is a GREAT Dylan term. It's unique, its fun, it's very Dylan!

Where's my bowl of Special Jelly??

Not that it matters, but did "unpawned" and "mateless" get ruled out.
That's two (in one song)!
