Poor boy Lyrics by Steve Forbert

 

Poor boy by Steve Forbert


VERSE
He's always alone, wrapped up in his plight
With his hands in his pockets he's walkin' in the night
With his dark eyes lookin', he's a poor boy
His dark eyes lookin', he's a poor boy
VERSE
He can't seem to keep any buttons on his clothes
And the shoes on his feet are pinching on his toes
And his hair wants a cuttin', he's a poor boy
His hair wants a cuttin', he's a poor boy
CHORUS
Hey (now, now) poor boy
What's it all about?
Hey, poor boy
Can you hear me when I shout?
VERSE
Well, he's workin' ev'ry day, slavin' for his pay
And all the pretty women they love to swish and sway
And they always overlook him, he's a poor boy
They always overlook him, he's a poor boy
VERSE
Well, May turns into June, walking through the park
And way off in his world he's a-dreamin' in the dark
With his mind on fire, he's a poor boy
His mind on fire, he's a poor boy
(REPEAT CHORUS)
(INSTRUMENTAL BREAK)
VERSE
Well, the streets are alive, ev'ry body laughs
People come and go and they're snappin' photographs
And he's over by the river, he's a poor boy
He's over by the river, he's a poor boy
VERSE
Well, spring has come and gone now
And how much time you got?
Time's a-flyin' by, yes, an' summer's gettin' hot an' he's
Lis'nin' to the thunder, he's a poor boy
He's lis'nin' to the thunder, he's a poor boy
(REPEAT CHORUS)
(INSTRUMENTAL OUT)
