Not sure if this should go to "Off topic" or "Swedish", but here we go.

In this clip:

Bob Dylan Jul 1

Google on "Farewll Angelina" and open one of the lyrics sites. There you will find Bob Dylans original text to the song. And googling on "Farväl Angelina" will bring up sites with the complete Swedish verson.

I still don't know how people suggest googling like it's actually an advice. It's not, and it's useless. Unless you can provide the exact line I'm looking for.

Once again, useless. It's missing the exact line I am looking for.
