    While Bob Dylan's '60s hit "The Times They Are A-Changin'" got a recent pop culture boost when it was used in the opening montage/credits of Watchmen, they could get another financial boost. The hand-written lyrics are set to be auctioned off next month and could fetch around $250,000!

    The dog-eared, smudged and discolored 8-1/2 by 11 inch sheaf of lyrics, topped with an underscored "by Bob Dylan," are set to be sold on December 10 with an estimate of $200,000 to $300,000, Sotheby's said.

    Shortly after Dylan recorded the song, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, and Dylan opened a concert with the seminal protest song on the next night.
