    The original lyrics to Bob Dylan's song "The Times They Are A-Changin'" sold at an auction last week for almost $425,000. The BBC reports that a hedge fund manager bought the lyrics and that he paid nearly $100,000 more than the expected price.

    What would you do with the lyrics if you had bought them? Frame them? Donate them?
