The Boxer Lyrics

The Boxer (Live) - Paul Simon (保罗·西蒙)

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 jest still a man

Hears what he

Wants to hear

And disregards the rest

Hmmmm

When I left my home and my family

I was no more than a boy

In the company of strangers

In the quiet of the railway station

Runnin' scared laying low

Seeking out the poorer quarters

Where the ragged people go

Looking for the places only they

Would know

Lie la lie lie la

Lie la lie la lie

Lie la lie lie la

Lie la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

Asking only workman's wages

I come lookin' for a job

But I get no offers

Just a come-on from the

Whores on 7th avenue

I do declare there were

Times when I was so lonesome

I took some comfort there

Lalalalalalala

Now the years are rolling by me

They are rockin' evenly

I am older than I once was

And younger than I'll be

That's not unusual

Nor is it strange

After changes upon changes

We are more or less the same

After changes

We are

More or

Less

The same

Lie la lie lie la

Lie la lie la lie

Lie la lie lie la

Lie la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

And I'm laying out my

Winter clothes and wishing

I was gone

Goin' home

Where the

New york city winters aren'

T bleedin' me leadin' me

Goin' home

In the clearing stands a boxer

And a fighter by his trade

And he carries the reminders

Of every glove that

Laid him down or cut him

'Til he cried out in his

Anger and his shame

I am leaving I am leaving

But the fighter still remains

Still remains

Lie la lie lie la

Lie la lie la lie

Lie la lie lie la

Lie la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

La la lie la lie

 

La la lie la lie
