Motorcycle Black Madonna Two-Wheeled Gypsy Queen

Today I learned about some classic folk lyrics from Bob Dylan's Gates of Eden as I was sitting in Dr. C's office and he observed my full set of riding leathers and asked me "are you familiar with Bob Dylan's songs?" Well certainly not as much as he is because he then proceeded to flawlessly recite this one stanza (below) of a very complex song, leaving me impressed.

The motorcycle black madonna
Two-wheeled gypsy queen
And her silver-studded phantom cause
The gray flannel dwarf to scream
As he weeps to wicked birds of prey
Who pick up on his bread crumb sins
And there are no sins inside the Gates of Eden
