132. The Boxer direkt zu den Akkorden

1. Strophe:
I am just a poor boy. Though my story´s seldom told,
I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises
all lies and just still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.
- summen -

Refrain:
Lie la lie, lie la lie la, lie la lie,
lie, la lie, lie la lie la, lie la lie, la la la la lie.

2. Strophe:
When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy
When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy
In the company of stranger,
in the quiet of a railway station, running scared,
laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
where the ragged people go,
looking for the places only they could know.

Refrain:
Lie la lie, lie la lie la, lie la lie,
lie, la lie, lie la lie la, lie la lie, la la la la lie.

3. Strophe:
Asking only workman´s wages I come looking for a job,
but I get no offers, just a come on from the whores on Seventh Avenue.
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there. Ooolala lala lala.

4. Strophe:
Then I´m laying out my winter clothes and wishing I was gone,
going home, where the New York City winter aren´t bleeding me,
leading me, going home.

Refrain:
Lie la lie, lie la lie la, lie la lie,
lie, la lie, lie la lie la, lie la lie, la la la la lie.

5. Strophe:
In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade
and he carries the reminders of ev´ry glove that laid him down or cut him
till he cried out in his anger and his shame, "I am leaving, I am leaving!"
but the fighter still remains.
