How many roads must a man walk down
How many minutes must I wait to see the doctor?
You must wait 10 minutes to see the doctor.
I walked down the road to the store.
Which street do I walk down to get to the store?

How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?
What must you do before eating dinner?
A doctor must go to school before you call him a doctor.

How many times can a man turn his head, and pretend that he just doesn’t see?
I turned my head to see who was talking to me.
I didn’t want to see the car crash, so I turned away.
How many times can he pretend that he doesn’t see?
My son took candy from the store, and I pretended that I didn’t see.
I don’t see anything wrong.
I don’t see the problem.
Do you see what is happening?

“Blowin in the Wind” by Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, ‘n’ how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
Yes, ‘n’ how many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes, ‘n’ how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, ‘n’ how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
Yes, ‘n’ how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, ‘n’ how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, ‘n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
