It's the first rhyme that's most brilliant

Gonna raise me an army of some tough sons of bitches.
I’ll recruit my army from the orphanages.
I’ve been to St. Herman’s church and said my religious vows.
I’ve sucked the milk out of a thousand cows.

Bob Dylan, “Thunder on the Mountain,” Modern Times

It must be a calling. Maybe someday he’ll replace Garrison Keillor on the Writer’s Alamanac, and you’ll hear him while you’re brushing your teeth in the morning, “Bob Dylan, who said ‘I sucked the milk out of a thousand cows.’”
