"Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?" was a 1965 single by American rock artist Bob Dylan. The single, recorded in October 1965[1] and released that December, reached #58 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and #17 on the UK chart in January 1966. Dylan is accompanied on the song by the musical group then known as The Hawks, who had backed the singer on his 1966 world tour and would subsequently go on to fame in their own right as The Band: Robbie Robertson (guitar), Rick Danko (bass), Richard Manuel (piano), Garth Hudson (organ), and Levon Helm (drums).

Originally available as a single only, the song was eventually included on Dylan's compilations Masterpieces (1978) and Biograph (1985), and on the Band's box set A Musical History (2005). The song has only ever been released as a mono recording, although a stereo mix is known to exist.

Dylan played the song to Phil Ochs as the two were riding in a limousine. When Ochs expressed a lukewarm feeling about the piece, Dylan ejected him from his limousine, yelling "You're not a folk singer. You're a journalist."[2]

Two earlier versions had been recorded in July 1965 during the sessions for the album Highway 61 Revisited with a band including Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper; one was mistakenly issued on a mispress of the single Positively 4th Street that autumn. Neither has been officially released.

This song was included in the list of songs in Nick Hornby's book 31 Songs, that was published in the U.S. as Songbook.
